Echo Investment has received a building permit to start the first two office buildings at Fuzja. Thus, the developer has begun the next stage of the revitalization of the postindustrial part of Łódź. The developer, at the site of the former Karol Scheibler factory, will construct two office buildings with completion scheduled for 2020.

The construction of two office buildings will start in Q2 2020. In total, they will offer almost 20,000 sqm of space for rent - the first one over 9,000 sqm GLA, and the second one - over 10,000 sqm GLA. Both buildings will be ready to use in 2022.

As part of the Fuzja project, apartments, offices, and space for services, as well as shops and restaurants, will be built on an area of nearly 8 hectares. In the heart of this quarter, there will be a historic Art Nouveau power plant, which will soon gain a new glow and will be adapted to new functions. New city squares, shared spaces, and green areas will occupy almost 4 hectares, encouraging people to spend there their free time and relax. Fuzja residents and users will be able to take advantage of numerous amenities, including car-sharing services, bike paths, bicycle service stations, parcel collection points, and electric car charging stations.

Fuzja, due to its scale, is implemented in many stages. In the spring of 2019, construction of two apartment buildings began, followed by cleaning and revitalization of the square in front of the historic power plant and the renovation of its Art Nouveau facade.

Together with the first office buildings, Echo Investment will install service facilities at the square in front of the power plant, another residential construction, and a multi-story car park.
