- Forever 21 signs its first lease agreement in Poland.
- Forever 21 to open in Galeria Polnocna first, then followed by Galeria Wilanów – with the two parties having just signed a letter of intent.
American clothing giant, Forever 21, will open their shops in two GTC investments in Warsaw: Galeria Północna and Galeria Wilanów. Forever 21’s first lease agreement in Poland has just been signed.
Forever 21 is one of the most popular American fashion brands with high recognition all over the world. Forever 21 is present in several dozens of countries, including: Belgium, Australia, Canada, China, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Thailand and Great Britain. Both Galeria Północna in Białołęka as well as Galeria Wilanów located in the south of Warsaw will feature the stores of this cult brand.
„We’re delighted about starting cooperation with such a globally well-known brand such as Forever 21. The choice of Galeria Północna is an illustration of how attractive this project is in terms of location, architectural design, interior and leasing strategy. What is also important for the tenant is the fast approaching opening date of the project currently under construction. I’m convinced that such a strong entrance onto the Polish market will be a very good beginning for the brand’s development in Eastern Europe. Our priority is to provide our customers with a unique retail offer. This is why we are so pleased that the cult brand Forever 21 will be present in both Galeria Północna and Galeria Wilanów.” – says Szymon Mińczuk. Retail Leasing Director in GTC.
Under construction in the Warsaw’s district of Białołęka, Galeria Północna is already 60% commercialised taking into account signed rental agreements and letters of intent. Galeria Wilanów on the other hand is still in the pre-construction legal planning phase. The tenant was represented by Cushman Wakefield.
Galeria Północna, designed by APA Wojciechowski and Tzur Architects, will not only be a shopping mall, but mainly a semi-open recreation space. The project involves the active use of the roof, which will be landscaped with green walking paths, a garden and a playground. The gallery offers around 64,000 m2 of space and 2,300 parking places.
Galeria Wilanów will be the very first major new generation shopping center located in southern Warsaw. Designed by the renowned APA Wojciechowski and Moshe Tzur architecture studios, the gallery is planned in such a way as to provide maximum openness. The environmentally friendly design will contain an entertainment section as well as a playground, easable area will equal 61,000 sq. m including ca. 250 stores and service points.
