Eiffage Polska Budownictwo and Browary Warszawskie
Eiffage Polska Budownictwo (EPB) has signed the agreement to be the general contractor of the residential project to be located in the new stretch of Krochmalna St. in Warsaw. The project constitutes the B and C stages of Echo Investment’s flagship investment – Browary Warszawskie (Warsaw Breweries) – that is being developed within the block of streets: Grzybowska, Wronia, Chłodna and Krochmalna.
The residential complex will comprise 287 units. EPB was chosen to be the general contractor due to its high safety standards at the construction sites, financial and operational capabilities (qualified and experienced team) as well as excellent history of the collaboration with Echo Investment.
The project is being developed in the centre of the capital city and in various respects it reflects the history of that place. Beer was brewed here for over 150 years, since 1864 up until 2004, with only a short pause after the World War 2. The investor is going to continue this tradition, although on a smaller scale.
Browary Warszawskie is a place that is very well connected to the rest of Warsaw. The designers are JEMS Achitekci. The idea behind the new project was to create a thriving part of the city, which would meet the diverse needs of its users. Office spaces will be interwoven with residential buildings. According to plans there will be also services, such as cafés and restaurants. Browary Warszawskie’s design is focused on greenery, which is more prominent near the ground floor, but appears in terraces on various levels of the buildings, filling the common spaces: public squares and court yards. Cozy spaces got symbolic names: plac Przy Warzelni (Near the Brewery square), plac Brama Browarów (Breweries Gate square), Ogród Centralny (central garden), Piwnice Czasu (Basements of Time), plac Śniadaniowy (Breakfast square).
“Browary Warszawskie is a space design created in the spirit of the most recent urban concepts. In the whole Europe the cities are presently being developed in a sustainable manner, in compliance with nature. They have to meet the varied needs of people, who live and work there. I am glad that thanks to our collaboration with Echo Investment we will participate in the building of a piece of a very well-designed urban space”, said Maria Czerwińska, Commercial Director of Northern Region in Eiffage Polska Budownictwo.
