Two firms eager to build underground car parks

Two companies applied for negotiations with the City Hall in the matter of construction of two underground car parks in the City Center of Katowice. The private investors would build the car parks and make profits while the City Hall is to hand over construction plots.

The two companies are Leosepte based in Warsaw and a consortium coordinated by Mota-Engil Central Europe owned by the Portuguese Mota-Engil group.

The subjected car parks are to be build on Dworcowy Sq. and Bolesława Chrobrego Sq. Planned number of parking places is no fewer than 300 and 400 respectively, located on 2-3 underground levels. Final number of places and levels as well as the architectural design will depend on investor.

The chosen firm will also have to prepare and manage two ground paid parking zones in the area of the planned underground car parks including Św. Jana, Dworcowa, Mariacka Tylna, Francuska, Jagiellońska, Kochanowskiego Streets.

The range of investments are to be defined during negotiations which will take up to 18 weeks. In next stage, the City Hall has to prepare a final specification, including the conclusions of the negotiations, which will describe the type of cooperation – for example, concession or public-partner partnership formula.

An estimated cost of the investments ranges between PLN 105 and 135 million excluding VAT.
