GTC’s Galeria Jurajska in Częstochowa, developed by Globe Trade Centre S.A., was recognised by the Construction & Investment Journal as the Best Shopping Center Development 2009.
The Best Shopping Center Development award is granted to the best retail projects in Poland. Galeria Jurajska, developed by Globe Trade Centre S.A. (GTC), attributes its success to such factors as its excellent location, attractiveness to tenants and customers and the timely and efficient execution of the project.
The international jury, which was composed of executives from the leading property companies, financial institutions and legal firms of the region, elected Galeria Jurajska as the best development project in the shopping centre category in 2009. The Construction & Investment Journal’s award distinguishes real estate projects which meet the highest standards of architectural design, construction and investment practice and are the most popular among their tenants.
This year’s recognition has been already the third award in that category received by the project developed by Globe Trade Centre S.A. The two other winners in the past were Galeria Mokotów in Warsaw and Cracow’s Galeria Kazimierz.
“We make utmost efforts to ensure that each GTC S.A. project is an innovative and safe place, built with the highest attention to details. This award proves that our commitment has also been noticed by the industry leaders. The unique tenant mix of Galeria Jurajska is another proof of recognition” – says Piotr Kroenke, the General Manager of GTC S.A.
