AstraZeneca, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, has renewed its lease of nearly 7,000 sqm and taken an additional 6,200 sqm at Postepu 14, an office building in Warsaw developed by HB Reavis. JLL represented AstraZeneca throughout the lease negotiation process.
“At AstraZeneca, employees are our greatest asset, which is why we decided to relocate to Postepu 14 two years ago, as this location offered us the best conditions to build a modern and employee-friendly office. The previous year proved that we made the right choice. This fact gains in importance in the context of the further growth of our organisation in Poland, with the plan to create new attractive workplaces and, consequently, double the space we lease in order to ensure an innovative working environment. These plans are undoubtedly furthered by the building’s state-of-the-art infrastructure and optimal location in the district of Mokotów,” said Andrzej Pelczarski, Hub Manager at AstraZeneca.
“The agreement will be one of the largest office lease transactions signed outside the Warsaw business centre this year. Although real estate developers have shifted their focus to other areas of Warsaw, in particular the fringe of the city centre and the area of Jerozolimskie Avenue, Mokotów remains an attractive location for business, as shown by the latest lease renewal and expansion signed by AstraZeneca at the HB Reavis office building,” said Jakub Sylwestrowicz, Head of Tenant Representation at JLL.
Postepu 14 offers 34,500 sqm of modern office space on ten storeys and is located at the corner of Marynarska Street and Postepu Street in Warsaw.
