The Góraszka Project is an innovative etailtainment destination with a GLA of 77,000 m2. It will be a premium location for the inhabitants of south-eastern Warsaw for shopping and spending time with family and friends. The facility is expected to be completed by 2022. Ceetrus is open to cooperating with new investors.
As part of the investment planned by Ceetrus Poland on a plot of 28 hectares in the town of Góraszka in near Warsaw, a unique, multi-functional facility combining a diverse tenant-mix with the possibility of active leisure and entertainment will be created.
Well-connected location thanks to modern expressways
The Góraszka Project will be well connected with Warsaw. Thanks to the access roads included in the projects for the modernization of the S17 road and construction of the southern Warsaw bypass (S2 road), getting to the centre will be quick and easy. According to estimates, nearly 2 million people live in the range of the Góraszka Project.
- The south-eastern part of Warsaw is the only place where a facility combining shopping and entertainment functions can be built. The inhabitants of this area have been looking forward to its construction for many years. Due to the original architectural design and functional features, it will also be an interesting proposition for residents of surrounding areas, including Warsaw – says Andre Decroix, director of development at Ceetrus Poland.
Commercial potential thanks to unique functional features
As part of the planned investment, a multi-functional complex with a GLA of 77,000 m2 will be built (with the possibility of future expansion). The main investor has planned to allocate 56,000 m2 GLA for commercial activities, which will be enough space for about 120 stores. The area devoted to entertainment and relaxation will take up 21,000 m2 GLA, which is about 27 percent of the area. There will be a spacious and comfortable restaurant area, relaxation zones, a multi-screen cinema, a modern fitness club and many other facilities where customers will be able to spend their free time. A petrol station and drive-thru restaurants will also be built in the complex in Góraszka. Ceetrus’ strategic partners, Leroy Merlin and the Majaland theme park, have already confirmed their involvement in the investment.
- The Góraszka Project is an investment with great potential, not only because of its location, but also its features. We are glad that these benefits have been noticed by the first investors. We will be presenting the project at our stand during this year’s Shopping Center Forum & Conference. We want to learn more about the opinion of potential tenants and to attract investors – adds Andre Decroix.
Majaland is an investment planned by the Dutch investor Momentum Capital and the Plopsa Group, the operator of the Majaland Kownaty theme park. A unique family theme park will be based on the animated series Maya the Bee. The investment in Góraszka will be completed approximately two years after receiving the required permits. It will be the second Majaland theme park after Kownaty in the Lubuskie province in Poland.
Together with the Plopsa group, we are happy to expand our business in Poland and to be able to develop another family theme park in Góraszka. There will be several million people within its catchment area. Cooperation with Ceetrus is an excellent opportunity to combine shopping with entertainment. This is an important step in building a portfolio of amusement parks in Poland where such investments are sought - says Martijn van Rheenen, founder of the Dutch Momentum Capital.
Preparation phase completed
So far, Ceetrus Poland has carried out numerous works related to providing adequate infrastructure enabling the commencement of the Góraszka Project.
– Access roads and collision-free viaducts have been constructed. Facilities currently under constructions include a double, independent power supply, a sewage system, extension of the sewage treatment plant, a gas pipeline, and a water treatment plant. The end of construction of the S2 and S17 roads is planned for 2020-2021, and Ceetrus Poland wants to complete the Góraszka Project in the third quarter of 2022 – says Tomasz Marczewski, responsible for the Góraszka project in Ceetrus Poland.
Innovative and original architectural concept
As planned, the Góraszka complex will provide shopping and entertainment in a natural and harmonious environment. The architectural design includes numerous references to the green surroundings of the facility and the Mazowiecki Landscape Park as well as environmentally friendly solutions (such as the sustainable use of water resources and natural energy sources). Customers will have access to a viewing terrace with natural vegetation, resting places close to nature, the connecting path leading from the facility to the forest, and educational paths around the centre. The design of the investment is being prepared by the architectural studio SUD Architect.
