After almost eight years since the „Kleofas” coal mine was closed, its area is put up on sale. The brownfield divided into six parcels is worth more than PLN 10 million according to initial prices.
All the sites cover approximately 34 500 sq. meters. The brownfields are located in the “Załęże” district on Obroki St. within a close proximity to the City Center and an easy access to the “Drogowa Trasa Średnicowa” (DTŚ, Inner Relief Road) and the “A4” motorway. However, the terrain needs recultivation activities.
The mine’s plots and buildings, owned by the Treasury, will be sold in a public auction. The right of perpetual usufruct of the lands and the right of the properties are possessed by “Spółka Restrukturyzacji Kopalń S.A.” (SRK, Mines Restructuring Company). SRK, wholly owned by the Treasury, is responsible for the auction. Interested companies make acquaintance with the sale offer by 8th of February 2012. The auction will take place two days later, on 10th of February.
There are examples of two spread post industrial sites located in Katowice where the revitalization vitalized post-industrial lands and creates a new public and commercial space. Silesia City Center – the fifth biggest shopping center in Poland – was built in the area of the former “Gottwald” coal mine. The new cultural district, being currently built, changes a landscape of the former “Katowice” coal mine.
