At present, SwedeCenter is building in Poland real estate with a total area of 66,000 m² and is working on new projects which will ultimately yield 400,000m²of new residential, office and commercial space.. The most prominent investments executed by SwedeCenter in Poland include the Business Gardens in Warsaw, Wrocław and Poznań - environment-friendly office and commercial parks, Gdynia Waterfront, a multifunctional complex of buildings, Mera Hotel & SPA in Sopot and Brama Portowa, an office and commercial centre in Szczecin. The characteristic aspects of all SwedeCenter projects include excellent locations, flexible arrangement of office space and high functionality.
SwedeCenter is the author of the "Portowo" project under which 15 hectares of undeveloped land situated on the Warta River will be converted into a complex of modern residential and commercial real estate. The investment in the post-industrial areas near the Starołęka Roundabout will return the Warta River and its long untapped potential to the City of Poznań and its inhabitants. The preliminary investment development plan includes such developments as a harbour with a marina and a waterfront promenade, connected by water canals with the Warta River and a pedestrian and bicycle overpass across the river to connect Starołęka with the green recreational areas of Łęgi Debińskie. The waterfront line of the Warta River will not be affected. Additionally the traffic system in Starołęcka Street will be modernised.
Similarly as in the case of other SwedeCenter investments, the ”Portowo” project places great emphasis on sustainable development principles, including such aspects as the natural environment, social and economic viability and flood safety. In accordance with the terms of the environmental decision, already at this stage of the project, there are plans that the undeveloped river banks will be covered with greenery and enhanced with elements of polder-type architecture. A system of eco-corridors will be arranged on the grounds of the ”Portowo“ district and the planted water plants will enhance the natural treatment processes in the water reservoir. The microclimate is expected to improve thanks to a water dam which will enable the growth of valuable plant species. During the construction, excavations will be secured to prevent the possibility of trapping amphibians, reptiles or small mammals. In order to compensate for the interference with the natural environment, nest boxes will be mounted on trees and buildings. All car parks near residential houses will be hardened with openwork concrete panels and stormwater will be collected from the surface of roads, car parks and roofs and, after treatment in settlement tanks and separators, will be discharged back to the Warta River.
