BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland to be in charge of Centrum Franowo in Poznań


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

The objective for BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland in managing the complex is to increase the scheme’s profitability in the long-term by optimization of operating costs and improvement of the workplace standard on an ongoing basis, which is of key importance from the tenants’ point of view. The consultancy’s involvement in the new project will additionally focus on issues relating to coordination of marketing activities, as well as management and analysis of data generated by 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

Katarzyna Gawlik, Member of the Board at IKEA Centres

Centrum Franowo, located in a popular area of Greater Poland’s capital right next to an IKEA store, comprises more than 30 shops, including Piotr i Paweł, Media Expert, Martes Sport, Pepco, Hendi. Architecturally, its design draws on Scandinavian patterns and style. Natural materials, bright colours and the maximum utilization of daylight are aimed at turning shopping at Centrum Franowo into an enjoyable and comfortable experience. On the one hand, the new complex in Franowo fits in with the retail character of the area, while on the other hand it expands the offer of convenient and quick shopping on the go.
