Biedronka supermarket chain will open its store in The Warsaw HUB complex being built in Warsaw’s Wola district. The discount store will occupy 1,085 sqm in the convenience centre located in the underground part of the building.
Jeronimo Martins Polska S.A., the owner of Biedronka, has signed an agreement with Ghelamco for the lease of 1,085 sqm of commercial space in The Warsaw HUB for a period of 10 years with the option to renew to 15. The supermarket will be located in the convenience centre on level -1 of the business complex. The centre will also host restaurants, cafes, a drugstore, dry cleaner’s, and other commercial spaces. The centre will have direct access to the Rondo Daszyńskiego metro station.
“When designing The Warsaw HUB, we wanted to ensure that not only its innovativeness would be based on state-of-the-art technological and architectural solutions, but also address the needs of modern tenants. A store of the popular Biedronka chain fits in well with our strategy of making The Warsaw HUB a self-sufficient business complex, which provides its employees with a wide range of services and amenities,” says Jarosław Zagórski, Commercial and Business Development Director, Ghelamco Poland.
“The Rondo Daszyńskiego area is the fastest growing part of Warsaw. We are convinced that Biedronka in The Warsaw HUB will perfectly complement the wide range of services and shops available in the building and that its offer will attract both the tenants and the close-by residents,” says Marek Wróbel, Expansion Director, Jeronimo Martins Polska.
“Biedronka will occupy the largest commercial space in the building while being one of the 30 tenants located on levels -1 and 0. The cooperation between Biedronka and The Warsaw HUB is an excellent illustration of the direction of development of office projects in Poland. The developers are focusing on delivering comprehensive offers as part of their projects,” says Mariusz Czerwiak, Head of Commercial Space Lease in JLL, a company which is the sole agent responsible for the lease of office and commercial space in The Warsaw HUB.
Biedronka has joined the continuously growing group of The Warsaw HUB tenants. So far companies and brands such as InterContinental Hotels Group, Standard Chartered or Zdrofit have announced opening their offices, hotels or branches in the building. Agreements or letters of intent have already been signed for 1/3 of the space in The Warsaw HUB.
