The new part of Gemini Park is climbing up. The next stage of work on the expansion of the largest shopping centre in Tychy has been completed.
The expansion of Gemini Park Tychy, which began almost 3 months ago, is gaining momentum. As a result of the works, the facility, which currently has 36.6 thousand square meters, is to be enlarged to nearly 44 thousand square meters of rentable area.
The new part, which will have almost 7 thousand square meters, will have a modern entertainment zone with a multi-screen cinema, as well as other restaurants and cafés. The works will also include a catering zone. Thanks to the expansion, this one is also to be larger. Moreover, the investor plans to create a playground zone for children, as well as to extend the offer of services.
- Expansion is progressing. We've finished the earthwork. All level 0 pillars have been completed. About 100 workers work on the construction site, heavy equipment is also present, including 2 cranes. So the stage of works connected with the preparation of the investment is behind us - this sentence is the first one said by Tomasz Misztalewski, director of Gemini Park Tychy.
Construction work in progress
In fact, in recent days, the workers have already completed the earthworks and the foundations for the new part have been laid. The pillars on which the ground floor will be placed have also been erected. The walls of the staircase with the lift shaft have also been made.
- On-site floor preparation work is currently underway. Advanced work is also underway on the sewage system under the floor. Work has also begun on formwork for the ceiling under the future cinema - Misztalewski enumerates.
Visitors to Gemini Park can already see the first skeleton elements of the new part of the gallery. - The mass to be built on this basis will be a continuation of the gallery's architectural design. Thus, the new part will blend in with the already existing building, both the façade and the interior design - says the director.
New part of the gallery
The new part of the mall together with Gemini Park and neighboring facilities such as Obi and Media Markt will create a modern, commercial Power Center, which will eventually have nearly 100,000 sqm of retail space.
- Thanks to the expansion, Gemini Park's offer will gain the entertainment segment. We will also have the opportunity to develop our catering and leisure&activity offer. This will increase our competitiveness on the local market and the range from which customers come to us. The cinema, in turn, will complement the offer of this type in Tychy - says Tomasz Misztalewski. Which tenants will appear in the new part? - We are at the stage of talks with brands. We want the offer to be unique and interesting, and at the same time complementary to the existing one, as well as an interesting entertainment offer for the residents of this part of Silesia - he adds.
- We should announce the first tenants in the coming weeks. There will certainly be some surprising elements in the offer. For example, we are planning to make one of the restaurants a catering facility for the Katowice Special Economic Zone, which is adjacent to us," concludes the director of the facility.
