Finnish developer YIT has chosen the general contractor for the residential part of the multifunctional building Żurawie. The tender was won by Mota-Engil. The investment will be built in the Young City of Gdańsk.
The total usable area of the buildings will be over 40,500 sqm. There will be commercial and service premises on the ground floor of each of them. Mota-Engil will build 243 apartments for YIT with areas ranging from 29-92 sqm. Completion of the residential part of the investment, which is included in the tender contract, is scheduled for the third quarter of 2023.
The work on the project was led by Professor Rainer Mahlamäki, one of the most outstanding Finnish architects, known in Poland, among others from the concept of the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews.
"The architect's mission is to develop a project that will refer to history and respond to the contemporary and even future needs of users and the local community. We should respect the existing old buildings, creating something that will continue the past, while understanding the present conditions and trying to predict the future so that the city and its tissue continue to develop," prof. Rainer Mahlamäki said.
