Alma Tower officially opens

Alma Tower officially opens

The Alma Tower office building, developed by UBM in Krakow, has officially opened.

Future tenants of the premises, representatives of the city authorities, Raiffeisen Polbank, which financed the project, as well as representatives of the developer, PORR Polska - the general contractor, and the architects in charge of the project, attended the opening ceremony.

The first tenants have moved into the building. Among them are the Alma Market group, which had occupied 5,000 sqm, the Onet.pl Group, whose office will occupy 5,400 sqm, PZU insurance company and Gastromall, the caterer for the building's tenants.

“Alma Tower constitutes the first office construction project executed by UBM in Krakow,” said Sebastian Vetter, UBM's Member of the Managing Board. “Alma Tower's available commercial space was 100 percent leased prior to the official opening. This is attributed to the project’s completion perfectly coinciding with the current boom on the Krakow office market, and vastly increased demand for office space.”

The building is currently undergoing certification in the LEED system. It has already been awarded the LEED CS Platinum Pre-Certificate, according to which savings of 50 percent water consumption and 25 percent energy consumption are planned.”

Alma Tower is a 14-storey building offering 10,700 sqm office space and 200 single parking spaces, including 150 located in the underground car park.
