The hypermarket operator Tesco is the first tenant of Galeria Bursztynowa in Ostrołęka to have taken over its space and begun the fit-out work in its store. Galeria Bursztynowa is scheduled to open in spring 2014. Cushman & Wakefield, a leading global real estate services firm, is the exclusive agent in the commercialization of this scheme.
Tomasz Górski, a senior negotiator from the Retail Department of Cushman & Wakefield, said: “The opening date of Galeria Bursztynowa is approaching rapidly. The scheme is anchored by both the DIY retailer OBI and Tesco, but Tesco is the first to have started the fit-out work. Other tenants will soon follow suit. The general contractor is now also busy doing finishing work in the building’s common areas and the investor has already begun the marketing process including the choice of the scheme’s official mascot.”
Galeria Bursztynowa is being developed in Gorbatowa and Żebrowskiego streets in downtown Ostrołęka, a city with the population of approximately 54,000. It will total around 32,000 sq m of usable space, including 27,000 sq m of retail space to let in about 60 units. The shopping centre offers superb access, including five separate access roads, to the inhabitants of both Ostrołęka and the surrounding areas. It will also provide a car park with more than 850 parking spaces.
Tenants who have already taken up space at Galeria Bursztynowa include: Tesco, OBI, RTV EURO AGD, Reserved, Sinsay, Mohito, House, Cropp, Diverse, Martes Sport, CCC and Rossmann.
The Retail Department of Cushman & Wakefield is responsible for the commercialization of Galeria Bursztynowa. The full construction design was prepared by the architect Jacek Zub with the Project Management team of Cushman & Wakefield. The development is financed by Bank BPS while Narev Inwestycje is the developer of the scheme.
