Mostostal Warszawa has just signed a contract for revitalization of the property located at Tuwima 46 Street in Lodz. The value of this contract amounts to almost 29 million zlotys gross. It includes rebuilding, storey superstructure, extension and change of the instruction for use of the complex of historical buildings. The contract was signed in the Public Procurement Office by Darek Jarek, Director of General Construction Area, and Artur Soczewica, Director of Central Department of Mostostal Warszawa. The local authorities were represented by Agnieszka Kowalewska-Wójcik, Director of Public Investment Management.
The construction works will be conducted on the plot situated in the neighborhood of Multimodal Station Lodz Fabryczna, Stanislaw Moniuszka Park and EC1 Lodz – City of Culture complex. The project is co-financed from the European Regional Development Fund within Regional Operational Program of Lodz Voivodship for the years 2014-2020.
We are going to perform a revitalization of the complex of buildings in the “design and build” formula. The Central Department has conducted two revitalization investments in Warsaw within last years, which are crucial to revive the cultural life and public space of the Warsaw’s Praga district; these are the prosperous Creativity Center Targowa, for which we have recently been appreciated by the Marshal of Mazovian Voivodship, and the adjacent Museum of Warsaw Praga. The building of these two investments was conducted under the strict supervision of the preservationist due to their historical character. The frontage building at Tuwima Street in Lodz was included in the Local Register of Historic Monuments, which imposes certain duties on us in the area of general contracting – says Darek Jarek, Director of General Construction Area, Mostostal Warszawa.
Apart from the revitalization, the task pertains to development of the area, technical infrastructure and the route out of the city. The existing investment, which comprises of frontage building with annex situated along the eastern border of the plot, will be redeveloped and overbuilt. The existing ground-floor building at the northern border as well as smaller utility buildings at the western border are going to be demolished. A new office and service investment will be erected in this place, which will be intended for office purposes. Premises on the ground floor from the frontage are going to maintain their service character. Additionally, there will be a public library in the internal courtyard, which will be a part of the developed northern annex. Thereby, the courtyard will have a new cultural function – says Artur Soczewica, Director of Central Department, who is responsible for the implementation of this investment on the behalf of Mostostal Warszawa.
The revitalization of the tenement houses at Tuwima Street is a part of the Area Revitalization of the Center of Lodz, which comprises of eight designs. The investment is situated in the neighborhood of the center of big-city zone. This is one of the most neglected parts of the city and it is crucial for its functioning. What is more, the areas of Srodmiescie are characterized by the oldest and the best urban public structure. The majority of imposing residential and fabric buildings are located in that part of the city.
