Lofty de Girarda officially open

Eurobuild CEE 04 April 2017
POLAND The Lofty de Girarda project in Żyrardów has been officially opened. A total of 172 lofts were developed in the historic 1913 Nowa Przędzalnia building of 1913 with retail and service outlets on the ground floor.

Additionally, 29 penthouses are to be developed in the building. The lofts have range in size from 33 to 120 sqm with a ceiling height for the day rooms of 4.7m, however the kitchen and bathroom areas are reduced in height by a mezzanine floor, increasing the area of each apartment by 12-47 sqm. The developer is Green Development while the design was created jointly by the architectural studios of Maciej Kneblewski and Jerzy Blancard. “We wanted both the historic and modern features of Lofty de Girarda to be on display. We’re extremely pleased that some of our clients who purchased their lofts as investments were so pleased by the final result that they’ve decided to live here,” says Jakub Żółtowski, the CEO of Green Development, who has also moved into an apartment in the project. The central feature of the building is a staircase and hall. Each floor has been named after the use that they were historically put to, which is also depicted in murals. Wherever possible the building’s original features were used including fire doors made by Mather & Platt from Manchester. “I have a lot of respect for the investor for carrying out the conservation work in such a way that the historical features have been rediscovered rather than painted over,” says Maria Badeńska-Stapp, the municipal historical preservation officer in Żyrardów. The building has been fitted a ventilation system with heat recovery that covers all the apartments, as well as maintenance and security systems, emergency lighting, and a fire alarm with smoke detectors. Work began on the project in 2007, but work stalled when in 2012 Green Development went into bankruptcy. With the assistance of PKO BP bank, the company reached an agreement with its clients and creditors and work resumed on the project. In September 2016, residents began to take possession of their apartments with notarial deeds transferring ownership signed by March for 76 of the 90 apartments sold. No additional payments were required of those who had bought apartments before the start of insolvency proceedings.
