A scheme from the portfolio of IKEA Centres Polska S.A. will for the first time be managed externally. Centrum Franowo, completed within 15 months and delivered to the market at the end of September this year, comprises 15 000 sqm GLA, out of which 7 500 sqm on level 0 is dedicated to retail and services, while the remaining 7 500 sqm on level +1 will be used for offices.
We are looking at the mandate for the first ever external management of a scheme from the portfolio of IKEA Centres as great vote of faith. We trust that our experience, the team’s skills and procedures implemented will enable us to proactively manage the scheme and adapt the strategy to the constantly changing market environment. We hope that our close relationship with the investor based on mutual partnership will make it possible to consistently create added value for the scheme

Centrum Franowo is a welcoming space for shopping and social engagements in a popular retail destination in Poznań offering a range of goods and services that ideally complements what other stores in the area, e.g. the IKEA store situated next door, have to offer. It is easily accessible by car and public transport. We are very excited about our collaboration with BNP Paribas Real Estate and we are certain that Centrum Franowo will be popular amongst customers and thus become a success
