A new housing estate of two buildings was delivered in the junction of Dębowa and Sportowa Streets in the Dąb district. Buildings were raised by “Towarzystwo Budownictwa Społecznego” (TBS) on order of the City Hall. The architectural design was prepared by “Biuro Projektów Architektonicznych Pallado i Skupin” known for its previous project of the “Bulwary Rawy” housing estate erected by TBS as well.
The year 2010 is going to bring to Katowice one of the biggest architectural and urbanisation undertakings in Poland. Undoubtedly, the redevelopment of the Railway Station and Szewczyka Square will implicate an image change of the City Center. Offering area of 52 000 sq. m for retail and 19 000 sq. m for exhibition space, the new complex will also include an underground bus station and a two-storey car park for 1 200 vehicles (33 000 sq. m).
