The masterplan includes:
30 Acres of Public Park with
• Running track
• Children’s playgrounds
• Tennis courts
• Picnic areas
A 15,000 seat Multi-use Stadium
• Olympic Training Centre
An Aqua Park
An Earth Museum
A Sports Museum
A 500 seat Open Air Theatre

A Vibrant Urban Quarter with
• 3 new public squares
• A promenade
• 2.8m ft2 gross flexible mixed use development, including
• A 4-5 star Hotel
• 1.1m ft2 offices
• 670 Apartments
• 100,000 ft2 retail area

The site occupies a prominent position on the main road into the city centre when arriving from the Park Swiatla. Think Place won the project following an international competition last November. Key buildings in the masterplan have been designed by Skidmore Owings and Merrill and Professor Stefan Kurylowicz and a concept design for the park was developed with Patel Taylor who will work with French Landscape Artist Alain Provost on future stages of the project.

The site is well serviced by public transport and its regeneration represents efficient use of land in one of Europe’s fastest growing cities. Sustainability has been at the forefront of the design and Think Place have worked with Arup on concepts for this, implementing Arup’s SPeAR tool for the first time in Warsaw.
