Multi Corporation has received building permission for Forum Radunia, a new urban shopping center complex offering 62,000 m² of gross leasable area (GLA). The project will be built in downtown Gdansk on one of the most strategically located sites in the TriCity area. The project is due to commence in autumn 2014 with a grand opening planned for late 2016.
Forum Radunia has been designed to revitalize the six-hectare historic areas of the former Hay and Crayfish markets, bordered by 3 Maja, Armii Krajowej, Wały Jagiellonskie and Hucisko streets. The site is located in the very center of the city, adjacent to the main railway station, the Old Town and key municipal buildings. The full potential of the location has not yet been exploited, mainly due to the fact that railway lines run through the land.
One of the most important elements of the project is therefore to house and cover the railway tracks inside the complex. The process of creating a tunnel over the tracks is already underway, following which the area above and the adjoining 1.5-hectare of land can become part of the complex.
Within the 62,000 m² GLA offering of Forum Radunia will be enough space for some 200 stores, a 9-screen Multikino cinema, Pure Jatomi fitness club, restaurants and cafes, and a multilevel parking for 1,100 vehicles. Tenants already include well-known Polish and international brands, e.g. C&A, Deichmann, Diverse, Douglas, H&M, Rossmann, Solar, Super-Pharm, SWISS, Triumph, Vistula, W.Kruk, Wólczanka and Yes, as well as McDonald’s. Among them are also a number of Gdansk-based companies, including internationally expanding LPP with its fashion brands CROPP, HOUSE, Mohito, Reserved and Sinsay as well as the home furnishing brand home&you. Other local brands recognized in the region to open their stores in Forum Radunia are Szydłowski bakery, Delicje cake shop and BIOWAY.
