Cavatina remodels Młode Miasto project
Cavatina's modified project
POLAND Cavatina has been holding talks over the development of a two-building office project in Gdańsk with the Pomeranian monuments preservation department.

The discussions concern how the office tower adjacent four-storey building will comply with the conservation requirements for the historic buildings in this area of the project. The development, which was announced in December, forms part of the Młode Miasto regeneration scheme and is to be situated at the junction of ul. Jana z Kolna and ul. księdza Popiełuszki.

Project documentation has already been submitted to Gdańsk city council as part of the building permit application. However, objections were subsequently made to the monuments department regarding the height of the larger of the two-buildings, resulting in the suspension of the permit application process, despite the project’s compliance with the local zoning plan.

The Cavatina Group, like other landowners in the area of ​​Młode Miasto, has been aiming to come to a substantive agreement on the terms and scope of the conservation of the local architecture in terms of the entire project.

“We are aware that historic buildings should be covered by conservation protection. We are expecting a wide-ranging discussion in which we will be a partner as well as an investor in this area. We have the knowledge and experience resulting from the implementation of many projects and we want to use this in such a specific project as Młode Miasto. We believe that our development will meet the expectations of the residents of Gdańsk and the future residents of Młode Miasto, while also adding to the historic value ​​of this location,” explains Daniel Draga, a member of the management board of Cavatina Group.

“There are not too many places for high-rise buildings in the city centre. However, this part of the city already includes Zieleniak and the former Hevelius hotel, which provides us with certain reference points and opens the way for similar development. Młode Miasto, as the future centre of Gdansk, should have such buildings. Of course, the careful selection of locations is important, but these are areas where high-rise buildings are needed,” argues Piotr Lorens, the president of the Association of Polish Urban Planners.

The recently announced decision to redesign the ground floor of the building and introduce services along ul. Jana z Kolna and ul. Malarzy, is the result of taking on board the views of experts, activists and locals.

“This approach will increase the attractiveness of the project and contribute to the creation of a friendly public area. One of the principles that guides us in preparing service space is its multifunctional purpose, and this applies as early as the design and shell stages. The owner or tenant receives premises that can be used freely, such as for restaurants, shops, medical centres or other services. All the necessary installations for a variety of activities are provided,” explains Piotr Jasiński, the director of Cavatina’s design department.
