Galeria Młociny opens to the public in Warsaw

Galeria Młociny retail and leisure complex opened to the public in Warsaw’s Bielany district yesterday (23 May), with 23,000 people visiting in just the first two hours.

The 225,000m2 GBA, 76,000m2 GLA development creates an attractive destination for the city’s foodies, families and trendsetters, housing over 200 stores (with several brand names new to the Warsaw retail scene), a 10-screen multiplex cinema, a gym, a bowling alley, 6,000m2 of F&B (the largest food hall in Poland) and 6,000m2 of office space for a car rental company – aiming to provide a sustainable and vibrant environment for people of all ages, interests and backgrounds.

An F&B and entertainment space with cosy pubs, restaurants, cafés and street food vendors occupies the entire second floor, connecting directly to a 2,500m2 roof garden filled with over 1,500 shrubs and trees. There is also a 200m2 dancefloor, 20 workstations in a co-working zone, a bicycle station and more than 2,000 car parking spaces, along with a city bicycle rental station.

The mix of uses and attractions is designed to ensure that the scheme is active well into the evening, offering something for everyone in Bielany and far beyond, while filling a gap in the market in the north-west of Warsaw. The project sits next to one of Warsaw’s busiest transport hubs, and is well-served by the metro and several tram and bus lines.

Chapman Taylor designed this mixed-use scheme in collaboration with Kuryłowicz & Associates, on behalf of Master Management Group, which later sold the project to EPP and Echo Investment. The F&B area was subsequently modified by Broadway Malyan after a separate competition for just that zone.
