Warsaw’s Browary receives award for best urban regeneration

Browary Warszawskie, in the Polish capital of Warsaw, has been named the world’s best in the urban regeneration category of the MAPIC awards.


Work on Browary, which began in 2016 and finished last year, covered almost four and a half hectares and involved the rehabilitation of a former brewery complex into offices, restaurants, and bars. Founded in 1846, the Haberbusch & Schiele brewery, which once stood on this site, was the largest of its kind in the whole of the Kingdom of Poland. The building complex, which was later used to produce Coca-Cola under American license, later fell into ruin. The Browary Warszawskie, which opened in 2021, has made use of the brewery’s elements.

“We are proud that Browary Warszawskie has been recognized in the international arena. It’s confirmation that our idea of ​​creating ‘destinations’, large, city-forming projects that fit into the needs of cities and complement them, is in line with global urban and social trends,” said Nicklas Lindberg, President of Echo Investment.
