Amazon launches technology development centre in Gdansk
Ivona Software (an Amazon company) has leased 2,700 sqm of modern office space in the Olivia Business Centre in Gdansk. The development centre launched at the beginning of December, will be working on Text-to-Speech solutions and software. The recruitment processes for Amazon’s new unit in Poland have begun.
Experts from JLL advised Amazon during the process of searching for the appropriate location and the negotiation of lease terms. Furthermore, JLL’s international team of engineers supported Amazon in terms of technical-architectural consultancy by coordinating the execution of works in the complex.
Magdalena Reńska, Associate Director, JLL, commented: "The superb location for employees, who will be commuting to work from different parts of Tri-City, played a crucial role during the process of looking for an appropriate space for the American giant. Amazon found good solution in a large space and the opportunity to develop on one floor. The flexibility of the landlord, specifically regarding space arrangement for our client, was also of crucial importance. It is also worth mentioning that the Amazon’s decision to launch a centre for research and development in the Tri-City shows that the region has all the necessary attributes to attract advanced services based on knowledge.”
