The project is unique in several respects. First of all, Żory was one of the last medium-sized cities in Poland without a shopping mall. Secondly – the gallery is practically 100 pct leased. – only two 50-meter flats have been left. Thirdly – the multiplex in Wiślanka is the only new cinema opened in Poland in 2020! In addition – such a large project was implemented by a domestic investor – Wiślanka S.A. from Jastrzębie Zdrój.
– It is one of the last new shopping and entertainment centers in Poland. Due to the very difficult market situation related to the pandemic and the problems of the commercial industry, this opening can be treated as a “litmus test” and an answer to the question about the future of the industry. The success of nearly 100% commercialization and the results of the first days of the facility’s operation confirm that well-prepared and professionally implemented projects still have a chance of success – says Maciej Mazur, CEO of Mallson Polska.
