HB Reavis starts 2nd phase of the Gdański Business Center project
HB Reavis has started the second phase of the Gdański Business Center project in Warsaw. The second phase will have a total area of around 50,000 sqm of Grade A office space.
The Gdański Business Center II complex will encompass two office buildings with seven to nine floors. The complex was designed in accordance with the new energy standard for buildings that enters into force as of 1 January 2017. HB Reavis plans to obtain a BREEAM sustainable, new building certificate, for the investment.
According to the developers, the project’s great asset is its prestigious location, on the border of Żoliborz and Śródmieście districts, near important public transportation nodes. Proximity to numerous bus and tram stops, to Dworzec Gdański underground station; Warszawa Gdańska train station and the Warsaw Public Bike System Veturilo station guarantee perfect communication not only with the city centre but also with other districts.
“At HB Reavis we look at each project through the eyes of its future users. On the one hand, we want to guarantee to them comfort of work in a unique environment, favouring work-life balance, on the other, we wish to give them the possibility to enjoy a friendly city space,” commented René Popik, Head of Development HB Reavis. “Gdański Business Center is something more than just work places. It was designed so as to serve not only its future tenants but also inhabitants of the neighbourhood.”
The completion of the second phase of the project is expected in the first quarter of 2016. Total leasable area (phase I and II of the investment) will exceed 98,000 sqm.
The construction of Gdański Business Center started in June 2012 with the first phase completed in June 2014. It is comprised of two buildings: a sixteen-storey building A and an eight-storey building B. E&L Architects designed both. Companies such as KPMG, SNC Lavalin, Provident and Coloplast are among the first tenants.
