On the 27-hectare (67 ac) site of the former Poznanski textile mills in the center of Poland’s second-largest city, French developer Group Apsys has refurbished and adapted 14 historically protected buildings as a two-story lifestyle destination center organized around a traditional Polish market square. A mix of international shops—including two hypermarkets—and more than 50 restaurants, cafés, and bars occupy the 150,000-square-meter (1.6 million sf) project, which opened in May 2006 and will be completed in 2008 with the addition of a four-star hotel, a conference and business center, and three museums.
