On May 17th this year a grand opening of the legendary Warsaw building for city residents took place! CEDET is an investment project of Immobel Poland. DORACO Construction Corporation was the one responsible for revitalization and extension of this famous building. In line with the investor’s intent, the Central Department Store, constructed in 1950s, regained its original character.
The facility, which had been revitalized since 2015, preserved its original foundations and pillars. The historic part of the building, with its very distinctive roof, chimneys and elevation, remained essentially the same, comparing to the original. The facades of this historic building were reconstructed in accordance with its iconic appearance – from before the fire in 1975. A neon sign with a characteristic arrow was put up on the elevation again, imitating the original one dating back to 1950s.
CEDET has 11 storeys, 7 of them above the ground level – with the total usable floor area of 18,460 m2, and
4 underground storeys with the usable floor area of 10,930 m2. Customers will be able to visit the revitalized building this month already. CEDET will serve Warsaw residents and tourists afresh, offering them
a sentimental journey back to the 20th century.
