Galeria Mlociny, one of the biggest shopping and entertainment venues in Warsaw, has unveiled its opening date. Set to launch on May 23, it will comprise 82,000m² of GLA with 76,000m² allocated to retail and F&B, and 6000m² used for office space. The centre will feature over 200 shops and 36 restaurants, 10 screen multiplex cinema with comfortable, recliner seating, a 200m² stage/event area, a green terrace area, and a parking facility for 2000 vehicles. The project was designed by Kurylowicz & Associates and Chapman Taylor.
The shopping centre is located in close proximity to the Mlociny transport hub – one of the best transit locations in Warsaw, with direct access to the underground, numerous trams, city, local and national bus lines, a bicycle station and a P&R car park. It’s also the busiest transfer point for the northern part of the city and Warsaw’s neighbouring towns, which is used by over 24 million passengers every year.
There are currently more than two thousand people in the construction teams currently working on the property. Its façade is fully ready and works related to the development of the shopping centre’s immediate vicinity are being finished. Tenants who have taken over their locations are in the last stages of preparations before the opening. The general contractor for the investment is Erbud.
Galeria Mlociny's investors include EPP (70% of shares) and Echo Investment (30% of shares). While the former will manage the newly opened complex, the latter was fully responsible for the development process and leasing.
"We’ve gone to great effort to make sure Galeria Mlociny will be an outstanding addition to Warsaw’s growing population. It is both beautiful and convenient and has a little something for everyone from families with children to office workers and an unparalleled gastronomic offering. We are also very excited to bring the first multiplex cinema to the district," said EPP’s CEO Hadley Dean.
"Galeria Mlociny will be full of new exciting brands. For the first time in Poland, we’ll see the opening of shops belonging to brands like Gagliardi, Sloggi and Mayoral. In addition to fashion brands, in the food hall area, gastronomic brands such as Sobremesa, Buenavista or Sushi Zushi will make their first appearance in a shopping centre. We are waiting to announce a well-known tenant with a strong European brand to appear in Galeria Mlociny, and this opening will undoubtedly act as an additional magnet attracting customers from all over the country to Mlociny. We are happy to invite you to the opening on May 23," commented Nicklas Lindberg, CEO of Echo Investment.
