Living in Luxury

Agnieszka Jaworska, marketing and sales manager for Warsaw's Wilanów One project, talks to Konrad Bagiński.

When was the decision taken to build Wilanów One inside the Miasteczko Wilanów (Wilanów Town) development? What sort of decision-making processes did you adopt and why here?

The site was purchased in 2006. We already knew that Wilanów had been earmarked for luxurious development projects so this was the ideal location for Wilanów One, which was intended to be a high class development from day one.

How does the developer see the project? Wasn't this a complex undertaking, virtually a greenfield project?

This is certainly a very complicated project, largely because of the high standards we've set ourselves. We want Wilanów One to be a byword for luxury, to be the place to live in Warsaw. Now that's a lot easier said than done. Promises won't get us there-there has to be a specific standard of completion that doesn't waver from previously approved plans and principles. We've so far managed to avoid a lot of the pitfalls in obtaining permits. The fact that the land had already been zoned to suit our purposes streamlined these procedures considerably. We have a lot of faith in this project. Wilanów One is in a class of its own in Miasteczko Wilanów. As such, it cannot help but succeed.

What do the project and its location have going for it and what are the problems and challenges?

Wilanów One is a completely new concept. This is luxury in its purest form-the ultimate place to live. The district itself is very fashionable and enjoys enormous prestige-people are proud to live here. These are Wilanów One's greatest assets. As for those things we need to work on, we could certainly be doing a lot more to convince the authorities to further develop the area by providing better infrastructure and transport, instead of leaving everything to developers.

How does your project differ from the rest of Miasteczko Wilanów? What sets you apart?

Wilanów One is special in a lot of ways. For a start, apartments will be 2.9 meters high, and penthouses 3.4 meters. This sort of development is really thin on the ground around here. Apartments come with central remote-controlled air-conditioning and all the fittings will be housed inside the buildings so as to detract as little as possible from the overall design esthetic. The facades will be made from special materials like stone and premium quality glass. Landscaping has been given pride of place and work is underway to set up elaborate green areas.

How many stages will this investment have and when can people start moving in?

The first apartments will be ready by the end of the year. Stage one is due for completion in the fourth quarter of the year and we're beginning work on the next stages in February. We're planning to put up all the buildings in succession until the entire project has been completed some time in 2011.
