Norblin Factory to be Redeveloped

ArtNorblin, an ambitious office and retail project that involves redeveloping the historic former Norblin factory, aims to create a new urban space that will inject fresh life into Warsaw’s Wola district.

Located on a former industrial site at the corner of Prosta and ¯elazna streets, ArtNorblin will have over 61,000 square meters of floor area, including 39,000 sq m of A-class office space and around 22,000 sq m of retail space. The redevelopment plan for the area proposes to incorporate 11 buildings and 44 machines from the former factory which are listed as historic objects as features of special interest.

New buildings in the area will be constructed above the historic buildings, with an open space centered around the area’s main paved promenade. The promenade will be lined with historic buildings, new shopping arcades, cafes, boutiques and renovated factory machines. The latter will be part of the Open-Air Museum of the Former Norblin Factory.

According to Kinga Nowakowska, the director general of the Art Norblin Sp. z o.o. company, which owns the former Norblin Factory, ArtNorblin will be a site like no other in Warsaw.

“This urban project will come with public space that will be fully integrated with the rest of the city,” Nowakowska said. “Now a closed-off area, the two hectares of land will become the living center of the neighborhood.”
The Art Norblin company is part of Capital Park Group, one of the largest developers on the Polish office real estate market and a leading high-street business in Poland.

The company will apply this year for building permission for the complex, which it plans to complete in 2015. The redevelopment project has been designed by the PRC Architekci studio.

The area around the former Norblin Factory at 51/53 ¯elazna St. is a post-industrial zone with a rich history. Established 200 years ago, in its heyday it was the pride of Polish industry, winning a number of national and international awards. One of its signature products were platters which were manufactured here until the end of World War II. After the war, during which the facility was badly damaged, the factory produced hardware. It was closed in 1982.
