PKP SA signs contract for Kraków Główny Station commercialisation

Jones Lang LaSalle, a financial and professional services firm specialising in real estate, has been appointed exclusive agent in the process of commercialisation of the retail and service area under construction within the Kraków Główny train station. The area, with a total GLA of 4,000 sq m, will accommodate approximately 60 shops.

As of 2013, PKP SA implemented new rules concerning train station commercialisation. Thanks to the support of external parties, these processes are now to be conducted faster and more efficiently. The Krakow station commercialisation contract follows 'hard on the heels' of a similar agreement signed recently by PKP SA with regards to Wrocław train station.

“Below the platforms of Kraków Główny passenger station, between Galeria Krakowska and the coach station, a modern retail and service space dedicated to the passengers is under construction. The investment has already attracted considerable attention from potential tenants” - says Małgorzata Szychułda, Head of Real Estate Commercialisation Department, PKP SA.

“The retail and service space within the Kraków Główny station will be tailored to fully meet specific passengers’ needs and expectations, supplementing the offer of Galeria Krakowska located in close proximity to the station. The 4,000 sq m of modern office space will accommodate cafes, restaurants, convenience stores, newsagent’s and other service units including, a pharmacy, exchange office, florist’s as well as a bank. The tenant mix of the 60 shops will include both international chains and local brands. Creating a service area will introduce a new quality to the Kraków rail traveller experience,  allowing quick and versatile shopping under one roof” – adds Grażyna Melibruda, Associate Director in Retail Agency, Jones Lang LaSalle.

In the heart of the city, Krakow Communication Centre (Krakowskie Centrum Komunikacyjne) – a regional hub integrating rail and coach transport will be created.
