Underground talks

A parking forum, which took place yesterday in the angelo Hotel, was attended by eleven companies interested in development of underground car parks in Katowice. Among the companies were Apcoa, Mota Engil, Eiffage Budownictwo Mitex, Koma System, Nowar, PC Parking, MBN, Coolar.

The City Hall, which organized the conference, presented possibilities of development the underground facilities as the legal issues, costs, localizations and technical conditions. The investors were positive about both locations, Dworcowa St. and Bolesława Chrobrego Sq. At present, the optimal solution assumes to develop three-storey facilities but the final decisions will be made by chosen investor.

A development cost of one underground car park vary between PLN 80 000 and PLN 150 000 and depends on technical conditions. The planned car parks would offer 450 to 550 places. Construction works for this type of investment take about 12 months and would start in 2012.
