65,000 m² revitalized in the heart of Gdansk
Granary Island, a project of Immobel Poland, has qualified as a finalist for the prestigious MIPIM Awards 2020 in the “Best urban regeneration project” category.
Together with RKW Architektur +, Kwadrat Studio Architektoniczne and Mąka Sojka Architekci, Immobel completely redeveloped the site on Granary Island, preserving the concept of the traditional grain sheds and translating their unique style into modern architecture. This part of the former Hanseatic city of Gdansk has lain waste ever since the ravages of the Second World War, leaving a gaping hole in the city. In addition to a hotel, apartments, shops and offices, the mixed project makes excellent use of its waterside location, with the construction of a new marina that will give the area a dynamic touch. A pedestrian bridge creates the link between the old town and the island.
The redevelopment of Granary Island, which is a great example of Immobel’s expertise in revitalizing city centres, will be completed in 2023.
At MIPIM, all attendees will have the opportunity to vote for this project. This event will be held at the Awards Gallery in the Palais des Festivals in Cannes level -1 from Tuesday 10 March at 9 a.m. through Thursday 12 March at 12 noon. For more information, please visit www.mipimawards.com
