Skanska's first office building in Poznan over 90 percent leased
Malta House, Skanska Property Poland’s first office investment in the capital of Wielkopolska region, is almost entirely leased. Three new companies will relocate to the Poznan-based building with another one to extend its lease agreements. All the lease transactions were advised by Savills. Due to the scheme’s commercial success, Skanska has launched another investment in Poznan – Maraton office complex.
Malta House provides 14,700 sqm of green office space. In the second half of 2014, companies including PKP Informatyka, OpenText and Owens-Illinois (O-I) chose the development. Furthermore, in February, Kinnarps, the leading European provider of office furniture, opened a regional office and showroom in the scheme’s services zone. Ciber is also planning to renew its lease agreement and increase its office space in May, by 1,150 sqm. Food Expert, a canteen operator, operating under the brand of Rotondo Kuchnie Świata, will also be present in the building. In August, Fitness 24 Seven, a Swedish operator of round-the-clock fitness clubs will open its second Polish location in Malta House. It will occupy 436 sqm of space.
“Malta House perfectly illustrates Skanska’s green projects philosophy. It was the first LEED Platinum certified office scheme in the Wielkopolska region and has all the features of an efficient and attractive workplace. It is located in one of the top-tier regional cities in Poland, adjacent to public transport routes and a shopping centre. It is both comfortable for employees and cost effective for companies, generating reductions in operational overheads. The scheme’s range of tenants, such as Fitness 24 Seven, complements its functionality also after working hours. Currently, we are working on Maraton building in Poznań, which will represent similar characteristics,” commented Krzysztof Wilczek, Regional Director in Skanska Property Poland.
