mBank has chosen Mennica Legacy Tower as its new headquarters

mBank’s headquarters will be located in the tower of the Mennica Legacy Tower complex. The total office space at the complex developed by Golub GetHouse and Mennica Polska S.A. at the intersection of Prosta and Żelazna streets in Warsaw has thus been commercialized. The agreement signed by the bank and Mennica Legacy Tower investors is one of the largest transactions in the history of the office market in Poland.

Mennica Legacy Tower will house the new Warsaw headquarters of mBank. It will replace the existing locations, e.g. on Senatorska and Królewska streets. In total, over three thousand bank employees will work on over 40,000 sqm. of one of the most modern office buildings in Poland. The building will also house one of the flagship branches for customers.

Cezary Jarząbek, Founder and CEO of Golub GetHouse, said: “mBank has been closely identified with innovative banking solutions for years, constantly enriching its offer. Innovation and striving for perfection are two elements that are definitely shared by mBank and Mennica Legacy Tower. The high-rise under construction sets a completely new benchmark for premium office buildings, among other things through its harmonious combination of modern technologies and timeless architectural solutions. We would like to thank mBank for the trust placed in us when choosing Mennica Legacy Tower for its future headquarters.”

mBank is the fourth largest bank in Poland in terms of balance-sheet total. It specializes in mobile banking. It was also the first online bank in Poland. It provides services to customers countrywide, as well as in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Its headquarters is located in Warsaw. Retail banking is based in Łódź.

The 140-metre-high Tower with the neighbouring 43-metre-high Western Building will offer a total of 65,630 m2 of modern office space. The project was designed by the renowned Chicago-based architecture firm Goettsch Partners, which decided to work with the well-established design consultants Epstein.

The Mennica Legacy Tower will combine unique architecture, the latest technologies, functionality and top-quality. Both buildings will feature advanced technological systems increasing the continuity and reliability of the buildings’ systems as well as improving the security of tenants. The Mennica Legacy Tower will also feature the latest mobile technologies enabling tenants to communicate with the building using a smartphone and a mobile app.

The tenants of the Mennica Legacy Tower office space, in addition to the mBank, include law firms Noerr Biedecki sp.k. and Allen & Overy, as well as the world leader in coworking spaces, WeWork, the sole tenant of the Western Building. The unique offer of the complex will be enhanced by retail and service spaces, which will be developed, among others, by the MEET & EAT restaurant concept and Zdrofit fitness club.

The entire project will be completed in line with the demanding requirements of the BREAAM international environmental certificate with an “Outstanding” rating. The entire complex will be open in autumn 2019.
