    Residential estates will be built on the premises of the former FSO plant in Żerań

    The vast FSO site at Jagiellońska 88 Street in Warsaw has been sold to the development company OKAM Capital. Thus, 10 years after the last car was produced, a certain chapter in the history of the Polish car industry is being closed. The developer assures that the investment would be carried out by him with respect for the past.

    For some it’s just a “huge brownfield”, for car fans it’s a place that’s somehow sacred.  Today, however, there is no more life in Żerań in Warsaw.  Some of the halls and warehouses are rented by small companies, car dealerships and workshops, while the rest of the abandoned FSO buildings fall into disrepair.


    In March this year, Janusz Woźniak, the President of the Board of FSO, announced in an interview given to SAMAR, that in the future, a large housing estate with residential and service facilities will be built on the former factory premises.  The aforementioned “future” arrived on July 29, 2021, when development company OKAM finalized the purchase of the 62-hectare land and announced a major redevelopment.


    The Passenger Car Factory (FSO) had been out of business for a long time.  The former production halls were converted into warehouses, wholesalers and a used car dealer.  Most of the older halls have long since been demolished and only the “old cobblestones” remember the times when Warszawa, Syrena, Polish Fiat, Polonez, or Daewoo and Chevrolet cars rode here.
