In the last 25 years the company has completed 89 residential projects with nearly 10 thousand apartments in several major Polish cities. In 2020, it started to build and sell units in nine projects, that increased its offer by over 1.5 thousand apartments. The company sold 1570 apartments, i.e. 16% more than in 2019, when its sales amounted to 1357 units. Only in Q4 2020 the sale amounts to 464 units.

“Achievement of the sales growth in a year when the whole residential market shrank by about 20%, is a really big success for the company, but also a proof of clients' trust in the Echo Investment brand. Continuing our Strategy of Profitable Growth, we are focused on strengthening our position in the residential sector and also developing multifunctional urban destination projects, where people can live, work and entertain. During the last years we have been working on strengthening our presence on the residential market to become one of the three largest residential developers in Poland, which was in line with our Strategy of Profitable Growth,” says Waldemar Olbryk, Member of the Management Board of Echo Investment.
