GTC has once again received LEED certifications for the Aeropark office buildings located in Warsaw. Zephirus kept its Gold level, while Nothus upgraded its rating and achieved Platinum. Thus, the company is consistently pursuing its strategy of increasing the value of GTC’s certified assets, as evidenced by the one-level-higher certification for an existing building.
Aeropark is a high-end business park uniting three A-class offices – Corius, Nothus, and Zephirus – within an area of 28,800 sqm, located just three minutes away from the Warsaw Chopin Airport. Nothus, the first building constructed in Aeropark Business Centre, was granted LEED on the Platinum level via recertification. This is the first Platinum LEED certificate in GTC’s Polish portfolio. Zephirus, Nothus’s twin building, received a great rating as well, keeping its Gold level. Over the past few years, the Aeropark Business Centre has been undergoing constant changes to respond to tenants’ new needs and to meet even-higher environmental standards. Each building stands out with architecture intertwined with sustainable solutions, and since April 2021, the complex has been powered by green energy.
“Platinum LEED certification is undoubtedly one of our most important achievements this year. Nothus has been recognised for its excellent air quality results, low utility consumption and very positive feedback from the tenants. I am very proud that GTC is continuously pursuing greater and greater standards of sustainability, this is now one of the pillars of our strategy,” commented Grzegorz Strutyński, Country Manager GTC in Poland.
Aeropark Business Center can also boast a unique service offer to suit the most exquisite tenants’ needs. The complex has plenty of parking spots and provides bike racks and an electric scooter charging station, as well as a gym and some shower cabins for two-wheel commuting enthusiasts. Tenants can use Żabka Nano, canteen and food trucks set in extensive green areas crowned with a pond, which is a perfect spot for escaping from the busy work routine, as it offers volleyball and boules courts. To make it easier to access building amenities, GTC has introduced the “Welcome GTC” app. Tenants can access information about the Group’s ESG activities, book meeting rooms, and stay updated with news about the gastronomy or shopping offers within the office vicinity – everything through the app.
In addition to the Platinum LEED certification for Nothus, GTC has recently obtained another green certificate, this time in Łódź. University Business Park has been certified with BREEAM International In-Use at an Excellent level. University Business Park is a complex of two 9-storey class A office buildings with a total area of over 40,000 sqm.
