Platan Zabrze bigger and better
The shopping centre in Zabrze is owned by Rockcastle Poland
POLAND Rockcastle, the investor behind the Platan shopping centre in Zabrze, has commissioned CFE to be the general contractor for extension work on the mall.

The initial preparation work has begun, including the removal of the car park area and the foundation work for the new section. The extensive renovation of toilets has been completed and they should be put back into operation soon, while improvements have been made to the water and sewage system, the escape routes are ready and a new, temporary entrance to the shopping centre has been provided. The next stage of the changes will involve the separation of the area that will continue to operate from the section to be modernised. The passageways in the centre are to be refurbished, while Platan will also be equipped with new digital network installations and LED lighting. The work has been devised not to disrupt the everyday functioning of the stores. The extended section will be cohesively connected with the current shape of the building and will also include an additional entrance. The project will increase the leasable area by 11,000 sqm. More than 200 new parking spaces are to be provided, bringing the total up to 1,400. Free Wi-Fi will also be available throughout the shopping centre. The owner is also planning to create a modern relaxation area and a co-working area for novice entrepreneurs and start-ups.

“We believe that thanks to the changes being introduced, our shopping centre will transform into the largest centre in the town. The completion of the construction work has been scheduled for autumn 2018,” claims Wojciech Godlewski, a senior project manager at Rockcastle Poland. Thirty new stores are to be added to the shopping centre, which will feature new brands and enlarged existing stores. This is the case with footwear retailer CCC, which will operate over a larger area designed according to its new concept. Sinsay, Super-Pharm, Vision Express will also undergo extensive changes, while the Triumph store has already been given a new look.

“We are already close to sealing the leases of several new brands, which should appear in the centre by the end of next year,” reveals Tomasz Górski, the retail asset manager at Rockcastle Poland.

Platan in Zabrze (Silesia) opened in 2003. The design work for the latest improvements has been prepared by the Sud Architekci studio. Investment costs for all the work are estimated at EUR 40 mln.
