Demolition works at the office of the former DOKP in Katowice will start at the beginning of December. The present owner of the property is TDJ Estate partnership which is going to realize an office and service complex in the building.

First and foremost, TDJ Estate is going to demolish lower buildings located at Olimpijska Street and then conduct geologic research to the needs of a new investment. The works related to the demolition of the main office are planned at the turn of the first and second quarter of the following year.


The works at demolishion of the skyscraper will be conducted in a traditional way. We will do our best in order to make them the least burdensome for inhabitants and the nearest surrounding – ensures Maciej Wójcik, Chairman of the Board in TDJ Estate. – Although we received a permit for the demolition of the building right after its purchase, the operations related to it were postponed due to the important events in the city, including i.a. The Volleyball Men’s World Championship in Spodek.


Partnership from TDJ S.A. group purchased DOKP skyscraper from PKP in 2013 and then it received a permit for its demolition. In place of the building, an office and service complex is going to arise, designed by Medusa Group studio from Bytom. We delivered the preparation of architectural conception to Medusa Group studio from Bytom due to its perennial experience in realization of office projects. Moreover, the fact that the company is from Silesia has a crucial meaning for us as an investor related to this region – says Maciej Wójcik.


The office of the former Dyrekcja Okręgowa Kolei Państwowych, located at Spodek in Katowice, was founded in the 1970s of the 20th century. The building is composed of 18 tiers and its total height amounts 90 meters.


TDJ Estate is one of the partnerships from TDJ S.A. Group, a private investment company which has been functioning for over 30 years in various sectors of economy. TDJ Estate Sp. z o.o. realizes investments in the property sector, mainly office, residential, warehouse and logistic, land and investments in projects based on „land developing”.
