Finnish developer YIT has received a building permit for a complex that will be built in the vicinity of the European Solidarity Center. The investment is distinguished by a dynamic shape, referring to the historical character of the place. The author of the design is Professor Rainer Mahlamäki, co-founder of one of the most recognizable Finnish architectural studios – Lahdelma & Mahlamäki Architects. In Poland, it is known, among others, for the award-winning POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw.
“The basis of the design process was the long and rich history of Gdańsk. The new buildings will offer modern spaces inspired by the industrial heritage of Gdańsk Shipyard. The apartments will offer unique panoramic views of this extraordinary cultural landscape,” Professor Mahlamäki said.
“We believe that this investment will be our showcase, a kind of welcome to Gdańsk, and an extremely important step in the development of YIT in Poland. For this reason, we invited one of the best Finnish architects to cooperate. Professor Rainer Mahlamäki, known for his sensitivity to historical and cultural aspects, created a project on a global level. We hope that it will set the standards for the development of the urban fabric of the Young City,” Tomasz Konarski, president of the management board of YIT in Poland, added.
