On 23 May, an agreement for constructing a district cultural centre was signed. The City allocated nearly PLN 21.4 million for the implementation of the construction project on the corner of Indiry Gandhi and Komisji Edukacji Narodowej Streets.
Investments important to the residents are being implemented in the Ursynów District. Construction works, involving a hospital started at the end of December 2016. In a few weeks, construction works on a district cultural centre will commence.

It will be the second local government cultural institution operating in the Ursynów District” said Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, Mayor of Warsaw, adding “I hope that the second-biggest district investment after the hospital will be completed according to schedule and the Ursynów District Cultural Centre will swiftly commence its operations, allowing residents better access to cultural events, including concerts, performances and exhibitions, and also cultural education classes for children and adolescents”.
The entrance hall with a gallery, a music club, a cloakroom, a concert hall and dressing rooms, will be located on the ground floor. The didactic rooms will be located on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The concert hall is designed to provide room for 350 people and a stage with professional stage equipment.

The multi-purpose hall will have the capacity to used as a ballet room (after folding the seats). The total useable floor area will be 3,421.58 m². A car park for 107 cars will be built in front of the facility.
