Young City Masterplan Gdansk, Poland

Danish real estate investment fund BPTO appointed Hoskins Architects in 2012 to prepare a detailed Development Plan for one of the largest waterfront redevelopment projects in Europe. The 22ha site of the former Gdansk Shipyard, long remembered as the cradle of the Solidarity movement in the 1980’s, will be transformed into a new dynamic mixed use district, creating a gross development area of circa 450,000 m2.

The development plan sets out a framework for the sensitive conversion and adaptation of the post-industrial site which restores, conserves and rejuvenates the protected 1870’s dockside buildings and introduces a range of new buildings to enable a variety of uses: offices, arts studios, flats, retail, hotels, conference facilities, bars, restaurants and a 60 berth marina.

Given the historical and cultural significance of the site, Hoskins Architects worked closely with the Regional Conservator, curators from the European Solidarity Centre and Gdansk City Council to ensure that the final proposals had the support of City authorities.
