An opening in autumn 2021
At the beginning of October, construction works of the new shopping center - Galeria Andrychów - a joint project of Acteeum Group and Equilis Europe, officially began. Construction works in Andrychów started immediately after the investors signed the contract with the general contractor, KARMAR S.A. Galeria Andrychów is the first retail project in the city and the region to be developed on such a grand scale, with a total GLA of 24,000 sqm. Galeria Andrychów is another, after Galeria Chełm, joint venture of both investors, which is scheduled for opening in autumn 2021.
« We are very happy that despite the difficulties related to the epidemic, the energy of our project in Andrychów does not decline. Not only that, along with the selection of the general contractor - KARMAR S.A. - and the commencement of construction works on this next commercial project in Poland - the enthusiasm of our partners, including tenants, and us investors continues to grow. We are convinced that we create an extraordinary place, unique from the perspective of the city and region » - explains Monika Woźniak-Zawioła, Head of Retail Equilis.
Along with the selection of the general contractor - KARMAR SA, on 07.10.2020, extensive construction works began on the plot on which Galeria Andrychów will be opened in less than a year. The facility with such a rich offer and built on such a grand scale will become the largest Power Center in Andrychów and the region.
« Galeria Andrychów is the second Retail project developed by Acteeum together with Equilis. In its development, we combine both the extensive experience of our companies, as well as the specific one that we gained while completing the project of Galeria Chełm, which was opened this spring. We are also very pleased with the commercialization of our facility – as of today there are only a few vacant premises left, and for each of them we are having advanced negotiations with interested tenants, and yet we are at the beginning of construction. We are very happy that with progressing to the construction phase of Galeria Andrychów we are achieving two things - implementing another project in accordance with the assumed plan, and we are proving that well-prepared projects carried out by experienced developers achieve success also in a particularly demanding market environment » – says Tomasz Szewczyk, Managing Partner Acteeum Cetrnal Europe.
Almost a year before the scheduled opening, Galeria Andrychów is almost completely commercialized, with lease agreements signed for over 90% of the space. Among the brands whose stores will be opened in the Andrychów Power Center there are well-known and popular chains such as Leroy Merlin, Lidl, CCC, SMYK, Rossmann, Media Expert, Martes Sport, Jysk, KiK, Sinsay, House, Cropp, Deichmann, Divers, Pepco, Dealz, Hebe or Komfort as well as attractive local stores.
- Power Center Galeria Andrychów is the second, after Galeria Chełm, project constructed jointly with Equilis and Acteeum. It is an expression of our partners' trust in us as a general contractor. We are also impressed by the market expansion of both companies and we hope to participate in the development of further interesting projects. I am also pleased that cities such as Andrychów have the opportunity to grow thanks to the emerging commercial facilities, such as the Power Center. It is an important element of the local economy of the city. As the general contractor of this investment, we will try to carry out the works as little burdensome as possible for the local residents, while respecting local conditions and the environment - explains Joanna Makowiecka-Gatza, CEO of KARMAR S.A.
The selected general contractor - KARMAR S.A. - will construct a modern and multifunctional retail facility in the Power Center format, with a total GLA of 24,000 sqm. The plot of land on which a new shopping center is being built is located at the intersection of Krakowska, Biała Droga and Przemysłowa streets with direct access to the national road and in the vicinity of the planned Bielsko-Biała - Głogoczów bypass. Galeria Andrychów will offer 38 commercial premises and 680 parking spaces.
