The Port Popowice project is a new opening and yet another chapter in the history of this unique place. The symbolic inauguration of the project is at the same time an attempt to maintain continuity between the port’s past and future. In addition to the foundation act, a time capsule with objects symbolising contemporary Wrocław and the Port Popowice project was placed in the building’s foundation. These include the latest editions of the local press, banknotes and coins, a smartphone, a map of the project with visualisations, letters from Wrocław residents, a flash drive with a recording of the voices of Popowice residents and the city’s zoning study.
The new development draws on the 100-year history of the original Port Popowice. In the decorative motifs of the common parts of the buildings and the project’s landscaping features, inspirations from tradition will be evident. The concept is based on contrasts and combines tradition with design, the city centre with proximity to nature, the past and the future. This unique marriage with the unusual atmosphere of the former port in the background makes the Port Popowice project shine brightly on the map of Wrocław property developments.
Port Popowice is a Wrocław-based complex of multi-family buildings also known as Marina Park. Construction of the buildings started in the summer of 2018 and will be completed in 2028. The built-up area will be 135,000 sq m. Nearby are the swimming pool on Wejherowska Street and the Legnicka Street I building. In addition, the Biznes Port office building will be built nearby.
