Students interested in accommodation at LivinnX Kraków can now check out the living spaces at the residence hall. The building, which is being developed by Golub GetHouse and CA Ventures International in the capital of Małopolska, features demonstration residential units fully reflecting the final design of LivinnX Kraków. With the beginning of the 2019/2020 academic year, the facility will accommodate up to 710 students. Booking has just begun.
LivinnX Kraków is under construction as part of the renovation of the former Telpod factory building at ul. Romanowicza 4 in Kraków. The residence hall will offer 290 residential units of a very high standard. Thanks to the arrangement of five demo units, students interested in renting space at LivinnX Kraków have the opportunity to see for themselves what the residential units will finally look like.
Each unit, fully fitted out, will have a living area with a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Furniture for the living areas (sofas, beds, kitchen furnishings and accessories) will be provided by IKEA, and household appliances (TV, refrigerators, induction hobs and microwaves) by Samsung. In terms of interior design, the investors also cooperate with Balma, the company responsible for equipping the common areas at LivinnX Kraków, and Technogym, whose high-end sports equipment will be installed in the gym.
Cezary Jarząbek, founder and CEO of Golub GetHouse, said: “LivinnX Kraków is all about modernity in every way, from the architectural blueprints and design to multifunctionality and amenities. This is our first investment in the sector of private student halls of residence, but I am already confident that it will be a success. Owing to cooperation with the experienced American partner CA Ventures, we will provide the Polish market with absolutely innovative solutions that are missing here today but have proved their worth abroad. We have focused on diversity, high quality and attention to detail. We firmly believe that our offer will be appreciated by both students and their parents.”
The booking system was also launched on the opening day of the demo units. Students can choose the type of unit they want to live in. There are 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-person spaces at their disposal. The residence hall also offers rooms for the disabled.
Tony DiBiase, principal of CA Ventures International, said: “As we launch our first project in Europe following the success that we have achieved in the United States and in Latin America, we are sure that the University population of Poland is going to welcome our project as it has been designed specifically for them and how Poland students want to live. We are excited to be opening in Poland and to serve this important market.”
Apart from residential units on six floors of the building, LivinnX Kraków will also offer 2,000 m2 of amenities. Students will have at their disposal, among other things, specially arranged study and entertainment areas, a large shared kitchen, 24-hour gym, sauna, yoga room, climbing wall, art studio, and even a terrace with a hot tub on the roof of the building. There will also be a laundry room and a bicycle room. The facility will feature public spaces such as a shop, drugstore, restaurant and café. The entire site will be supervised by CCTV cameras. The reception and security services will be available 24 hours a day.
Thanks to its convenient location, the residence hall will be well connected with Kraków’s key colleges and universities. It is also located in close proximity to the Old Town and the Kazimierz district, offering access to cultural facilities and services such as museums, art galleries, clubs, restaurants and the Vistula River embankments.
The residence hall will house 290 units for 710 students. The prices for monthly accommodation at LivinnX Kraków start from PLN 1,350 per person. Depending on individual preference, an agreement may be entered into for a period of 5 or 12 months.
The design of the Telpod renovation was provided by the renowned Kraków-based architecture studio IMB Asymetria, and the general contractor is Unibep S.A. The completion of construction work is scheduled for summer 2019. The first students will move into LivinnX Kraków at the start of the academic year of 2019/2020.
