LemonTree will build BOOSTER ZABRZE in cooperation with Commercecon. It is a unique concept in the Polish market of a modern business complex with offices and service and logistics space, which will be built directly at the Drogowa Trasa Średnicowa (Silesian Central Motorway) and the intersection of the A1 and A4 motorways. At a press conference, with the participation of Małgorzata Mańka-Szulik, the Mayor of Zabrze, the project’s premises were presented.
As part of the Upper Silesian conurbation with a 2.7-million population, Zabrze is an important manufacturing center supporting numerous industries. The city’s location near the intersection of motorways, which are parts of the E75 and E40 European routes, provides excellent transportation links, connecting north to south and east to west Poland, making it an attractive place for investors and business people.
A unique approach to integrating business, recreation, and social life
Zabrze is the perfect location for LemonTree’s latest project, BOOSTER ZABRZE, a development that fits in with the region’s aspirations. It is a combination of service, logistics, and office spaces with a total area of 111,000 sqm, as well as green and public spaces.
“This investment is not only another boost for the local economy but also creates a new area for the local community. The developer has presented an interesting project that fits into the modern image of Silesia, promoting innovation and sustainability. We hope that the development will attract more investors to our region, and will serve the residents of Zabrze for years to come,” says Malgorzata Mańka-Szulik, the Mayor of Zabrze.
The idea of openness to residents and creating new value for the city
The project involves the creation of four zones. Each of them is to serve a separate function, combining into a modern vision of a complex attractive to tenants and the local community. On the one hand, energy-efficient and high-tech buildings offer modern and sustainable business space. On the other hand, a public space with a multipurpose sports field and a food area or an exhibition space to promote local artists would be ideal. The complex will offer a green space open to the residents of Zabrze with small architecture and numerous plantings, allowing them to relax and unwind.
“This venture goes beyond the standard framework of similar developments. It’s a space that combines high-tech solutions with environmental protection, but also creates perfect conditions for business, sports, or relaxation,” comments Bartłomiej Krawiecki, CEO of LemonTree, “The project features low-emission materials, modern architecture inspired by nature, and green zones that harmonize with the character of the complex and the LemonTree brand strategy.”
LemonTree: in harmony with nature…
Every aspect of the BOOSTER ZABRZE project, from construction to operation, will use technologies that reduce negative environmental impacts. This ranges from the selection of materials with the lowest possible carbon footprint to many innovative utility solutions – the use of CEM2 cement with a reduced carbon footprint and photovoltaics to power buildings, and, as part of innovation and testing, the use of bio-panels with marine algae. These are examples of actions that demonstrate LemonTree’s responsible approach and commitment to creating functional and sustainable spaces.
“At Commercecon, we are socially responsible, not only when it comes to the approach to the process of construction, but also in all areas of our business. That’s why I’m glad we are starting the new year as a general contractor for such an innovative but, above all, environmentally friendly development. In the implementation of BOOSTER ZABRZE, we are going to use a range of environmentally friendly materials and innovative technologies that will minimize the impact on nature and ensure the sustainability and energy efficiency of the entire complex,” says Hubert Hoffman, CEO of Commerce.
… and with people in mind
The BOOSTER ZABRZE complex offers tenants a strategic location in the heart of the Silesian Agglomeration, with access to major traffic arteries, and a modern business space designed for the comfort and well-being of employees. The public space with green areas adds value to the local community, and the business spaces, refined with special care and with quick access by public transportation – including trams – will provide perfect conditions for tenants to work and relax.
Projects throughout Poland
This is yet another investment by the developer in the Polish market, which last year commissioned developments in Mysłowice (51,500 sqm) and Wrocław (11,000 sqm). In Warsaw, an urban business park project in Targówek (32,000 sqm) is currently under construction, as well as an office and laboratory building (24,600 sqm) at Chopin Airport. At the same time, another state-of-the-art building dedicated to tenants from the new technology sector (10,000 sqm.) is being built in Mysłowice. The construction of an urban project in Szczecin (about 30,000 sqm) is in the pipeline, as well as BOOSTER ZABRZE itself.
