New Brand on Residential Market
March 5, 2008   
Article's tools:

Ghelamco Residential is a new brand of international developer Ghelamco Poland. Over the coming months, the company intends to expand on the residential market, particularly the modern apartment and luxury residence segments. It plans five residential projects, including Poland's first soft lofts and a small district of single-family houses.

Ghelamco Residential

Until recently, modern A-class buildings were Ghelamco's flagship products. Now, more than a dozen years of experience and the higher demand in the Polish market have encouraged the company to enter the residential sector. Ghelamco plans to build properties for clients with a wide range of needs, from standard and luxury apartments to residences. Over the next three years, the company intends to complete nearly 1,000 apartments, including soft lofts-a novelty in Poland.

Future clients of Ghelamco Residential will benefit from the strong position of the Ghelamco group. The company is renowned for top-quality projects, timely completion, modern architectural solutions and financial stability. At present, it is planning residential projects in Warsaw and Wrocław, and will do the same in the future in other major Polish cities, such as Łódź and the Gdańsk-Sopot-Gdynia Tricity.

Investment in Warsaw

Woronicza Qbik

Poland's first soft loft project will be located at the corner of Woronicza and Racjonalizacji streets in Warsaw. The design, which comes from the INVI studio and was inspired by lofts in the United States, will blend in with the cityscape in this industrial area of the Mokotów district.

This project is aimed at clients who appreciate unconventional designs and solutions, and is distinguished by bold, modern shapes. The two-level lofts in Woronicza Qbik will be spacious and 5.8 meters high, featuring large windows and simple forms inside. The project will also include single-level apartments, each with a large terrace or balcony.

The developer will build some 380 apartments sized between 44 and 160 square meters. Clients will be given a choice of interior finish-hard loft, soft loft or apartment. The hard loft finish will be most distinctive, designed for aficionados of a clear, industrial style, with concrete floors and walls and visible elements of the building's structure. The apartment-style finish will be a functional and modern space, perfectly fitting the building's avant-garde shape. The soft loft will offer a compromise between the raw character of a loft and the more cozy atmosphere of a standard apartment.

The building will have a two-level garage and each apartment will feature an intelligent remote control system. The building will have round-the-clock security, a fitness club and a restaurant. The internal patio will hold an unconventional garden matching the building's bold design.

Construction will start in the third quarter of 2008. Due to high client interest, the sale of soft lofts will begin soon, at the residential exhibition at the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw April 5-6.

Konstancin Gardenville

Ghelamco Residential will build a luxury, green estate including 59 houses and duplexes in the Warsaw suburb of Konstancin. Designed by INVI architects, it will feature high-quality brick, wood, and modern glass and metal elements. This will give the project an elegant yet very modern form. It is an option for clients who want to stay away from the city bustle but benefit from city infrastructure.

All the houses will contain basements, with a garage for two cars. Each will have a large garden (1,300-1,800 sq m). The houses will have 3.2-meter high ceilings, large windows, wooden window frames, and wooden terraces. They will also feature an intelligent remote control system and security.

Ghelamco Office Tower in Warsaw

Ghelamco Poland plans to build the Warsaw Spire office tower between Towarowa and Wronia streets in the center of the Polish capital. The structure will be 220 meters high, including the spire. Designed by renowned architects Jaspers Eyers & Partners, the tower will have a soft, oval shape and the glass facade will form a subtle arch, giving the impression of wings at the top of the building.

The Warsaw Spire will have 50 floors holding 60,000 sq m of top-class office space, surrounded by a small park with a pond. The building will feature a high-quality finish and an underground garage for 1,500 cars. It will stand next to the Hilton Hotel on a plot of more than two hectares.

Ghelamco Poland plans to begin construction of the Warsaw Spire this year and complete it by the end of 2011.
