At the begining of 19th century, in 1804 the prince Hohenlohe-Ingelfingen-Oehringen had started a development of ironworks called “Hohenlohe”. In the 70’s of 19th century, the ironworks was tranformed into a zinkworks named “Silesia” aftertime. The smelter was closed by the end of 20th century. Some of deteriorative buildings had been bought by Karol Geppert and were started to redevelop into offices. As a result, we can admire three refurbished office buildings along Korfantego Avenue, made available for tenants between years 2006 and 2009. The complex is called Stara Huta (Old Smelter).
The development was designed with a key eye on detail and high class materials as granit, egzotic wood and glass. Thanks to its design, Stara Huta is counterpoised to open spaces and big office buildings delivering a loft character and soul.
The developer is going to refurbished another fourth building and to raise a new one. At present, Stara Huta hosts 23 companies.
