Echo’s project is taking a shape

Some remarks about plans of developing an office project in Katowice by Echo Investment S.A. are made from time to time on the real estate market. The company is mentioned together with Hines, Skanska and TriGranit as the investor which is interested in developing in Katowice. The localization was pointing out the junction of Francuska St. and the “A4” highway but certain details were not disclosed yet.

Until now, the project was subtly mistified. This is what Wojciech Gepner, the Public Relations Manager at Echo, unmasked about the investment. – The construction works of the office project on Francuska St. are planned to commence at the end of 2010 and will take two years. At present, we run works for a construction project which enables to procure a building permit and a road network settlement around the building. The project offers a total area of 24 600 sq. m of which 14 500 sq. m will be leaseable. The building will be equipped with a high standard security solution including a monitoring system and an access control. A design of the project is preparing in cooperation of two architectural studios, DDJM and AiR Jurkowscy – Architekci. The final architectural design will be known in a few months. – Wojciech Gepner finished.
