At Fenix Group, we believe you can turn back the time, and all that has been forgotten can regain its former splendour.
Jagiellonska street used to bear many names; early in the 19th century it was called Szeroka, and from 1865 onwards the section towards the north of the current Kłopotowskiego St. was called Petersburska, whereas the southern part was named Moskiewska. The whole street got its present name as late as in 1919. In the era of the communist state, the northern part was renamed Stalingradzka. Today there is just one Jagiellonska street again, the home of many historical buildings.
One of them is the house of Chaim Herkowicz and Perla Grinberg, built as a four-storey edifice with two annexes, which together with two wings of the adjacent building at 28 Okrzei St. would close up the common courtyard area. The house at number 22 was erected in 1911-1912 in the style of early modernism. The façade shows very few traces of former splendour and variety. The reason being the building had been damaged during the Second World War, and subsequently rebuilt without the original ornaments and balconies around the year 1950. Fortunately, there are a lot of interior design elements that have survived, especially in the staircase and gateway décor, e.g. door woodwork with decorative carving. On the landings there are also original two-tone tiled floors.
In the Addresses of Warsaw published in 1909, there is a mention of Aron Ehrlich’s grocery and Aron Perlmuter’s coal trade operating at this address. Around 1930, numerous doctors lived in the house (among them surgeons, gynaecologists and dentists), the census of the time mentions several officials residing here as well. A company owned by J. Zylberberg buying up old barrels also operated at 22 Jagiellońska St. (it functioned over the years 1932-1953). At that time the building belonged to Zygmunt Zawadzki. Fenix Group bought the property in February 2010 from the rightful inheritors.
The house is located in a fast-developing area of Praga district, very close to Targowa street and Solidarnosci Avenue. Public transport in the vicinity offers a clear advantage. Hubs for entrepreneurs, such as Google Campus, are opening up in the area and numerous artists move their studios and galleries over here.
In the neighbourhood, you can find several places for recreation and sports activities, such as Skaryszewski Park, the Warsaw ZOO, Prawy Brzeg sports centre and the sandy beaches on the bank of the Vistula river. A state-of-the-art cinema and the children’s theatre, Teatr Baj, are just round the corner, and getting to Teatr Powszechny theatre and the National Stadium is a matter of minutes. Just a stone’s throw away is the famous Old Town, a fantastic place for a walk.
