City creation is a major focus for Invest in Pomerania, the organisation that attracts foreign direct investment to northern Poland’s Pomerania region, which encompasses the TriCity conurbation of Gdańsk, Gdynia, and Sopot.
“We’re looking for developers with experience,” said Invest in Pomerania director Wojciech Tyborowski at EXPO Real recently. Tyborowski said these companies will be experienced in residential and office development and ways in which the two can be mixed to provide added value for the tenants and inhabitants.
The region has sites ranging from two hectares to 30 or 40 hectares suitable for mixed-use development.
“FDI is a large part of the development strategy for Pomerania region. We are consistently investing in that in that area to make ourselves visible and attract new projects,” he said.
There are five sector priorities: business services, IT, electromobility, semiconductors and offshore wind.
He said that there is a cost-effective talent pool in all of these sectors. “Poland is right now investing heavily in the development of offshore wind farms and Pomerania region will be at the heart of that,” Tyborowski said.
And because Gdansk is a major Baltic port the area has that as an additional advantage. “Pomerania is a beautiful region and this is something that we are also highlighting,” he added. “We are looking for partners who will help us increase that beauty.”
