Designer Outlet Warszawa wins Prime Property Prize 2021

Designer Outlet Warszawa has been awarded the Prime Property Prize 2021 in the category of Commercial Property Market’s Investment of the Year.

Designer Outlet Warszawa was one of the winners at the Prime Property Prize 2021 gala held on 2nd September. Marek Berer, Senior Asset Manager CEE of DWS Group, accepted the award for Commercial Property Market’s Investment of the Year, and was accompanied at the event by other representatives of the investment group DWS and the centre management company ROS Retail Outlet Shopping. Further common projects in Poland include Designer Outlet Gdańsk and Designer Outlet Sosnowiec.

The category award for Commercial Property Market’s Investment of the Year is granted to newly built or expanded shopping centres in the last 12 months, based on several criteria such as project quality, investment completion time, the commercialisation process, cutting-edge solutions and architecture, as well as the project’s impact on the environment and the local economy.

In May 2021, Designer Outlet Warszawa officially inaugurated its new extension with additional 5,500 sqm and more than 25 new stores, thus strengthening its pole position in Poland. A newly designed food court and further 500 parking spaces in the new multi-storey car park with direct access to the shopping aisles also provided customers with convenient shopping.

Designer Outlet Warszawa is today Poland’s flagship outlet destination and hosts more than 130 designer, fashion & lifestyle brands, with a unique variety of international premium names, like Armani, Boss, Lacoste, Marc O’Polo, MaxMara, Swarovski, Tous and many more.

“I believe we have created a distinctive shopping destination that is appreciated by customers due to the unique tenant mix. We have many brands that are not available in outlet format in any other centre, while those wishing to expand their offer opened their largest outlet stores in Poland at Designer Outlet Warszawa. All this proves that the investment in our expansion fully meets the demand of our customers,” says Katarzyna Ciemińska, Centre Manager at Designer Outlet Warszawa.

This was the 10th jubilee edition of the Prime Property Prize contest, which each year selects companies and projects with the greatest impact on developments in the commercial property market, as well as individuals whose spectacular actions have played a crucial role in the development of the entire industry.
