Acteeum prepares another retail park in Poland – Ostróda Power Center

Previous year successes of Acteeum – i.e. the opening of Galeria Chełm and starting construction of Galeria Andrychów in the Power Center format, show that despite challenges related to the coronavirus epidemic, the market welcomes new, well-thought-through projects in good locations. Acteeum is consistently expanding its portfolio throughout Poland preparing the new project – Ostróda Power Center.

Ostróda Power Center will be the first and the largest shopping complex of this type in the region. It will be a facility with a total GLA area of over 25,000 m², featuring over 14,000 m² GLA of a retail park, a stand-alone Home and Garden store as well as additional services such as a drive-thru restaurant, gas station, car wash and about 700 parking spaces. The shopping center will be located on a plot of over 8 ha. The investment area already has a construction permit, which is currently being adapted to the scope of the planned investment.

“An extremely strong advantage of the planned Center is its perfect location – the complex will be developed on the main entrance road to the city center, directly at the junction of the S7 expressway, connecting Warsaw and Gdańsk, and the S16 expressway leading to Olsztyn and Grudziądz. Location of the facility is also perfectly connected with Ostróda and the region. Ostróda Power Center catchment will cover over 120,000 inhabitants as well as extremely intense transit traffic on the S7 and S16 routes.“, commented Tomasz Lipiński, Acquisition Manager, Acteeum Central Europe.

“We are very pleased with the rapid progress of our new project in Ostróda. We are also convinced that thanks to the project’s perfect location, its size and a diverse and optimally composed mix of tenants, as well as through quick construction process, our Ostróda Power Center will turn out to be a great commercial success, meeting the expectations of tenants and, most importantly, the residents of Ostróda and the surrounding cities. We see a lot of interest from tenants – as an example I can name the LPP group – with which we are currently concluding conversations on the location of several stores in our Center“, explained Tomasz Jopkiewicz, Leasing Director, Acteeum Central Europe.

The 25,000 m² GLA of the shopping center will include, among others, a stand-alone DYI hypermarket, a large grocery supermarket, well-known fashion stores, popular discount chains and an attractive restaurant chain with a drive-thru facility. In addition, the retail park will include a spacious car park for over 700 vehicles, as well as a conveniently located gas station and car wash.

Ostróda Power Center will open up new shopping opportunities and comprehensively complement the offer of smaller shopping facilities located in the city and the region. The new Center will attract customers not only with its location, but also with a concept that will ensure that you can shop from various categories in one place. Direct access from the parking lot to each store will ensure easy, safe and comfortable shopping in a much shorter time than in other retail facilities.

All these advantages and the effective operating costs of the retail park are also key attractors for tenants, with most of whom the detailed lease agreements’ arrangements are underway.

The opening of Ostróda Power Center is planned for the first half of 2022.
