Poland's regional airports have experienced phenomenal growth due in part to the expansion of travel on low-cost carriers. Around Katowice, rapid reintegration of the Silesian industrial heartland with its historic EU markets created opportunities for hospitality and other supporting real estate development for a catchment of 11 million customers.
As Managing Director for Washington Opportunities Group Sp z o.o., Amber led the effort to assemble a highly visible and accessible 1 hectare (2.5 acre) site and secure preliminary design approvals. After exploring alternative development options including hotel and logistics, we elected to sell the parcel and closed the transaction in Spring, 2018 .
The site is situated right at the entrance to the airport and convenient for both passenger and cargo related functions.
As the Polish economy continues to expand above EU average rates, the Katowice region is well-positioned for long-term growth and offers the best highway network in Poland.
