Second rebirth of Księży Młyn
The second phase of Textorial Park should be completed in 2020
POLAND The revitalisation of Księży Młyn – Karol Wilhelm Scheibler’s former cotton mill complex in Łódź – is to enter its second stage.
St. Paul’s Developments Polska, which has already developed Textorial Park on part of the site, is now to start work on Textorial Park II on a further 2 ha of the former textile works. The ruins of two warehouse buildings built in the 1880s and 1890s are to be restored and integrated into the new architecture of this stage of the Textorial complex. The project is to be completed with a new five-storey office building with an underground car park. It will also feature a prominent mural by Łódź-based artists, as well as almost 0.9 ha of public space – including a square with green islands ideal for relaxation. According to the developer, due to the variety of functions of the planned office and service complex it will be constantly active and thus also attractive for local residents outside office hours and at weekends. A fitness club, nursery school, restaurant, coffee bars and a wine & bread café are to open in the services section, as well as a public library, a bicycle repair point, a medical clinic and co-working offices. A total leasable area of 26,000 sqm is to be developed.

Kraków-based studio Horizone Studio is responsible for the design of the entire project. According to a design accepted by the provincial monuments preservation department, the derelict storage buildings will be integrated into a glass and brick structure, thus preserving some of the history of the site.

“The reconstruction and extension of the existing ruined buildings and the type of architectural approach taken are aimed at emphasising the historic character of this setting,” claims architect Robert Strzeński, a partner of Horizone Studio.

“We want to bring out the immense potential of this location, making it a defining factor in people’s lifestyles and work. This will be space that tenants appreciate, but it will also be valued by the employees of the tenants, who will be able to both work and spend time here, which is of particular importance for us,” argues Anna Banaś, the CEO of St. Paul’s Developments Poland.

Building permits have already been issued for the project at ul. Tymienieckiego 28–30 as well as a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ certificate for the design stage. The construction work should be completed in 2020.
