The list of tenants of the shopping and entertainment complex – being developed in one of the best locations in Warsaw, in the vicinity of the Młociny transport hub and the last underground station – was joined by Greenpoint. The store of the popular clothing brand for women will be located on the first floor and will occupy an area of nearly 130 sqm. EPP and Echo Investment, investors of the facility which is now nearly 90 % leased, announce its opening in the spring of next year.
“While completing fashion stores in Galeria Młociny, we took a closer look at the majority of important Polish and foreign clothing brands. The final shape of the list of tenants will be a response to various expectations of future clients. The presence of Greenpoint will certainly please modern, economically active women who look for elegance and functionality in fashion” says Karolina Prędota-Krystek, Senior Leasing Manager at Echo Investment’s Shopping Centres Department.
The Polish brand has been on the market continuously since 1992. Currently, it owns over 130 stores throughout the country. Greenpoint is a clothing offer for women who place importance on elegant and at the same time comfortable and functional fashions. Its designers take care that the common denominator for each of products included in one of three basic lines - office, everyday or casual - is always elegance, comfort and femininity. This is why clothes with the brand's logo work perfectly well in various situations - at work and also during social events.
“We have high expectations with our presence in Galeria Młociny. Seven prosperous stores in Warsaw allowed us to become a recognisable brand and gather quite a large group of loyal customers. The latest, eighth store will be the flagship location for the brand in the latest concept. One of the main goals that we set for it will be to strengthen our company’s appearance among women's clothing brands on the Warsaw market and thus win new customers” says Marek Szostak - President of the Management Board of Greenpoint S.A.
The end of works is getting closer
The construction of one of the largest shopping and entertainment complexes in the country began at the beginning of October 2016.
“The latest finishing works are currently underway in Galeria Młociny. We have also started to hand over the first premises to the largest tenants” says Szymon Mińczuk, Regional Leasing Director at Echo Investment’s Shopping Centres Department. The opening of the facility, which is developed on a 5-hectare plot between Zgrupowania AK "Kampinos" street and Maria Skłodowska-Curie Bridge Route, is planned for the spring of next year.
New, mixed-use centre of Bielany
The place will combine 220 favourite stores and service outlets, comfortable offices, a medical centre, playgrounds, a fitness club, restaurants and cafes, a trampoline park and the first multiplex cinema in the district within a friendly and green area.
Galeria Młociny is distinguished by an innovative approach in the design of meeting places, entertainment and gastronomy. Its restaurant and entertainment space, which occupies the entire +2 floor and is connected with the green roof garden, has been divided into various functional zones. Architects from the renowned Broadway Malyan studio transferred the atmosphere of cosy cafes, street-food and eating out as well as outdoor dining among greenery to Warsaw’s Bielany district. This is the first concept of its kind in Poland.
Galeria Młociny is being developed right next to Młociny hub – one of the places with the best transport links in Warsaw, with direct access to the underground, numerous tram lines and bus routes, suburban and national buses, a bicycle station and a P&R car park. It is the most important transfer location for the northern part of the city and satellite towns and it is used by over 24 mln passengers every year. Investors of Galeria Młociny are: EPP (70 pct shares) and Echo Investment (30 pct shares). The former company will manage the newly-opened complex. The latter one is fully responsible for the development and lease process.
