Skanska Property Poland has laid the cornerstone for Atrium 2, the company’s new office investment in Warsaw. The scheme that is located in the business centre of Warsaw will combine the most important features of a modern office building. That includes a convenient location in the vicinity of numerous prominent points of Warsaw, and a number of green solutions that will contribute to the scheme’s friendly working conditions. This will be confirmed by LEED Platinum certificate.
Both representatives of Skanska Property Poland and city officials took part in the cornerstone ceremony. The foundation act was signed by Michał Olszewski – Vice-President of Warsaw, Marek Sitarski – Deputy Mayor of Wola District, Katarzyna Zawodna – Managing Director at Skanska Property Poland, Krzysztof Andrulewicz – President at Skanska S.A., and Andrzej Michalik and Borys Juraszyński, representatives of PRC Architekci.
Atrium 2 office building will offer its tenants around 20,000 sqm of modern office space. It will comprise 15 floors above ground and four floors underground. The scheme’s parking lot, with parking places for 125 cars, will be also provided with bicycle racks as well as locker rooms with shower cubicles for cyclists. One of the main advantages of Atrium 2 is its excellent location in the centre of Warsaw. In the scheme’s vicinity there are several tram and bus lines and a station of the 2nd metro line. What is more, Złote Tarasy shopping centre and Warszawa Centralna railway station are located within a bus stop length from the building. The scheme’s surrounding area also includes numerous cafes, restaurants with cuisine from across the world as well as several service points and recreational centres. One can easily find convenient locations for lunch, or business meeting, gyms and fitness centres as well as accommodation in one of the adjacent high-class hotels. The scheme’s completion and obtaining of occupancy permit is scheduled for the beginning of Q2 of 2016.
“Atrium 2 is a natural continuation of Skanska Property Poland’s presence at the Western side of Jana Pawła II Ave. in the very centre of Warsaw. The scheme’s convenient location guarantees close proximity of public transport as well as a number of restaurants and service points. The investment was designed so as to provide both its tenants and their employees with maximum comfort. On each floor there will be loggias which will distinguish our building among other schemes currently developed in the city centre. 270-centimetre-high full space glazing will provide an excellent access to natural daylight. Flexible, regular-shaped office space will ensure comfortable floor division even among several tenants,” commented Arkadiusz Rudzki, Leasing and Asset Director at Skanska Property Poland.
The scheme’s first tenants will be able to relocate into the building in the beginning of Q2 of 2016. Skanska Property Poland is in charge for the building’s commercialization. Skanska S.A. is the scheme’s general contractor while PRC Architekci prepared its architectural design. Construction and installation project was prepared by BuroHappold.
