“The shop of Forever 21 is a great extension of the fashion offer in Galeria Młociny, the arrangement and display of which has been our priority since the beginning of the design work. The new, multifunctional centre of Warsaw’s Bielany district perfectly combines the most-anticipated fashion brands, entertainment, services and sport as well as a unique gastronomic concept in the country,” says Szymon Mińczuk, regional leasing director from Echo Investment’s Shopping Centre Department.
Forever 21 is based in Los Angeles, California. The chain promotes the hottest fashion trends and its distinguishing feature is the fact that you can find something new in its shop windows every day. The company was founded in 1984. It currently operates more than 750 shops in the United States, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Japan, Korea, Latin America, Mexico, the Philippines and the United Kingdom.
Galeria Młociny is a new, mixed-use centre of Bielany. The place will combine 220 favourite shops and service outlets, comfortable offices, a medical centre, playgrounds, a fitness club, restaurants and cafes, a trampoline park and the first multiplex cinema in the district within a friendly and green area.
Galeria Młociny is distinguished by an innovative approach in the design of meeting places, entertainment and gastronomy. Its restaurant and entertainment space, which occupies the entire +2 floor and is connected with the green roof garden, has been divided into various functional zones. Architects from the renowned Broadway Malyan studio transferred the atmosphere of cosy cafes, street-food and eating out as well as outdoor dining among greenery to Warsaw’s Bielany district. This is the first concept of its kind in Poland.
The mall is being developed right next to the Młociny hub – one of the places with the best transport links in Warsaw, with direct access to the underground, numerous tram lines and bus routes, suburban and national buses, a bicycle station and a P&R car park. It is the most important transfer location for the northern part of the city and satellite towns and it is used by over 24 mln passengers every year.
More than a year before its opening 75 pct of Galeria Młociny is already leased.
Investors of Galeria Młociny are: Echo Investment (30 pct shares) and EPP (70 pct shares). The former company is fully responsible for the development process and the commercialization of the project. The latter one will manage the newly-opened complex.
