Thai Wok to Open in Neon
A new Thai Wok restaurant will open for business in the Neon building, at Alchemia in Gdańsk. It will be the chain’s second location in Gdańsk, third in Tricity. The decision to open a new restaurant in Neon shows Thai Wok’s trust in the potential of the region and adds to the already-existing dozen of dining options at Alchemia. The new tenant was represented by Cresa Polska during the lease negotiation process.
Thai Wok Sp. z o.o. has leased over 170 sqm for its new location, signing a five-year agreement with Neon’s developer, Torus. The upcoming restaurant will be arranged and fitted according to the chain’s latest design scheme and will be located on the ground floor of the building near al. Grunwaldzka (the main arterial road in Tricity), accessed from outside and via the building lobby. Thai Wok Sp. z o.o. wants to expand in this region with a new menu that has already seen some success in other cities, including Warsaw.
“We want to develop our locations in northern Poland. Sales in our existing restaurants are performing well, so we now wish to grow our Tricity locations. Alchemia is an awesome place that is a fantastic match for our restaurant look. We hope our customers - both office workers and local residents alike - will feel the same way”, said Bartosz Brusikiewicz, Thai Wok Operations Director.
“We are happy with Thai Wok becoming one of the tenants at Alchemia. Establishing a relationship and signing a contract with them was no accident – it had been our goal to bring a well-known restaurant brand that offers a different menu from what we already have in our office buildings at Alchemia. We are certain the new restaurant will be a hit among Alchemia workers and visitors”, said Przemysław Hetko, Torus Leasing Manager.
Thai Wok in Alchemia will offer a special menu. Besides its flagship dishes, the restaurant will offer a variety of new options fit for any occasion - quick lunch, dinner with friends or business meeting. The interior will be spacious and decorated in an oriental style. Thai Wok’s numerous Asian chefs will ensure customers will get a true taste of Thai cuisine.
The restaurant is expected to open at the beginning of 2020. The new tenant was represented by Cresa Polska during the lease negotiation process.
“We are pleased to have been able to help Thai Wok with its ambitious expansion strategy. Alchemia is one of the best-connected locations in Tricity and so the final choice made by Thai Wok was no accident. It is a strategic move for the chain’s continued development in Poland’s major cities. The restaurant will provide an excellent opportunity to try out some genuine and healthy Thai cuisine and we are sure it will create a unique menu for the people working in Alchemia”, said Daria Kotarska, Senior Advisor in the Retail Department at Cresa Polska.
Neon, currently under construction, is the final stage of Alchemia. The building will supply over 35,000 sqm of lease space to the market, with 33,500 sqm dedicated to office space. Approx. 1,500 sqm of retail space will be located on the ground floor of the building, creating a bustling meeting and relaxation space that will double up as a pedestrian throughway, next to the already constructed Alchemia Argon building. Neon is expected to obtain its use permit in Q4 2019.
