We are very pleased that during the most prestigious event in our industry – MAPIC trade show in Cannes – as the first in Poland we signed a contract with a global brand – Forever 21. The fact that shop of the American clothing giant in Poland will be opened in Galeria Północna, is a strong evidence that this project is attractive not only for well-known and respected tenants but also for the operators looking for a strong entry into our market. We wish that the customers of Galeria Północna could benefit from the offer which is not available in other shopping centers, so we constantly work on it. I hope that soon we will be able to inform about further successes on this field – says Szymon Mińczuk, Director of Lease at GTC.
The construction of Galeria Północna started in July this year and its opening is scheduled for the first half of 2017. Galeria Północna will be a modern shopping and entertainment center, which due to its unique design features will have a significant impact on the Polish retail sales market.
Galeria Północna is going to shift the dynamics of Warsaw retail sales. The new modern shopping and entertainment centre, located in the north-east part of Warsaw, will aim to attract not only customers from Białołęka but also from other districts of Warsaw and its surrounding. Cooperation with renowned architects from APA Wojciechowski and TzurArchitects will set out new standards in design and construction of shopping centres. One of the unique features of Galeria Północna will be an open rooftop garden with a lawn, walking paths and a playground. A partially glass roof will be yet another innovative solution, which combined with the extensive interior of the gallery will provide access to natural daylight. The unique structural design features have made Galeria Północna one of the most eco-friendly buildings in its category in Poland, earning it a LEED GOLD precertification.
The gallery offers its tenants around 64,000 m2 of space and 2,300 parking places for its customers. It is one of the two, alongside Galeria Wilanów, most important GTC investments in Warsaw. The construction of the gallery started in July 2015 and its opening is planned for H1 2017. The commercialization of Galeria Północna is executed by Cushman & Wakefield and JLL, all marketing and advertising activities are provided by Communication Unlimited agency.
