Norblin Factory (which also previously had the working titles of Fabryka Norblina and ArtNorblin) is situated on the 2 ha site of the former 19th-century Buch Brothers and T. Werner metal-plating factory. Capital Park has redeveloped the site into a multi-functional complex with an area of over 65,000 sqm, of which 41,000 sqm will be modern class A+ office space, while the remaining 24,000 sqm will be taken up by entertainment, cultural, gastronomic, and retail/service space. Ten historic former factory buildings and 50 machines and devices (42 of which are listed on the register of monuments) have been restored by the company.
We have officially completed the construction work. Almost four years of revitalisation, as well as work on introducing modern buildings into the historical architecture, are now behind us. (…) We had to perform unique construction operations, such as moving one of the historic buildings as a whole, and suspending two others. Over the next few months, fit-out and interior arrangement work will be carried out for individual tenants. In the coming weeks, the final machines will return to us, the final touches and aesthetic work will be performed on them. We are also going to work on the multimedia attractions at the Norblin Factory Museum.
