Second life for old factory
The Tymienieckiego project will comprise 20 buildings
POLAND Echo Investment will convert the cotton mill built by Karl Scheibler on ul. Tymienieckiego in Łódź’s Księży Młyn district into a mixed-use development. Medusa Group is responsible for the architectural design of the project.
The development on ul. Tymienieckiego encompasses an 7.7 ha site including the plant’s original steam house building.

“Księży Młyn dicrict is changing; new apartments, office buildings, and restaurants are being created in old factories. The city is renovating the former workers' housing and the Academy of Fine Arts has turned a former school into a design center,” said Hanna Zdanowska, the mayor of Łódź.

Echo plans to build about 90,000 sqm of residential, office and service space as well as restaurant, retail, service and cultural facilities.

The Tymienieckiego project will comprise 20 buildings, 14 of which will be developed through the conversion of the original factory buildings. The development will also include urban squares, common spaces and green areas with a total area of almost 4 ha.

The first stage is the construction of two residential buildings with 270 apartments. Echo Investment has already been granted the necessary building permits with the work to start in April. The first residents are to move in at the beginning of 2021.

Act BSWW was advising Echo Investment on the acquisition of Elektrownia RE, the company that owned the investment property – the former Scheibler factory.
