New Faces of Warsaw

Some developers not only build apartments, but also shape the contemporary look of cities. Robyg is one such developer, focusing on new locations and unconventional architecture and setting trends for others to follow.

There is a common theme in projects which Robyg carries out in Warsaw. If this were to be expressed in a single, short sentence, it would be: “Robyg is a daring pioneer.” The company’s first project in Warsaw was Miasteczko Wilanów. On a site that until recently comprised empty meadows and fields belonging to the Warsaw University of Life Sciences (SGGW), Robyg designed the largest comprehensive developer project in Poland, featuring modern urban space in an area where no residential structures had ever been built before. The history of Miasteczko Wilanów began with the New Residence of Queen Marysieńka. Most of the project has now been completed. This quarter of cozy tenement houses with a touch of Modernist tradition has set architectural standards that others find hard to match.

An equally ambitious project is under development by Robyg in the southern section of the Żoliborz district, one of the most prestigious parts of Warsaw. The southern part of it has never had much luck. World War II put a stop to the area’s development before it reached the border of the ¦ródmie¶cie and Wola districts. After the war, it became home to heavy industry.

The breakthrough came in the last decade. It was then that the authorities decided to bring the south of Żoliborz back to the city and its residents. A new residential quarter is now under development and its design takes into account urban plans from the interwar period. Even though it will feel like a downtown area, the quarter will provide its residents with a sense of privacy and safety. The first residents have moved into City Apartments, a project developed by Robyg.
