DWF has signed a ten-year lease for a 2,260 sqm office suite in Małachowski Square, a revitalised historic residence in the centre of Warsaw. The tenant was advised on the transaction by Savills.
DWF is a global provider of integrated legal and business services listed on the London Stock Exchange. It currently has over 4,000 staff in 30 offices across the world, including 150 professionals in Warsaw.
“The strategy of our business centres, among other things, on sustainable and profitable growth. We are keen to provide the best possible environment for our employees to work and develop, considering their expectations towards the future workplace which have significantly changed as a result of the pandemic and social changes we are already experiencing. Our current office in Małachowski Square, enriched with an innovative vision of our ESG and Workplace units, is an excellent match,” says Michał Pawłowski, the Managing Partner of DWF in Poland.
DWF was assisted in the lease by Savills, which provided advisory services comprising a review of the tenant’s needs, recommendation of potential locations and negotiation of lease conditions.
“Offices in renovated historic buildings combining history, comfort and a modern fit-out are becoming increasingly popular among clients who value tradition. DWF is a strong example of this market trend – it has been based in Małachowski Square for years, previously subleasing office space there,” says Marcin Sabowicz, Associate Director, of Tenant Representation, Savills.
The owner of Małachowski Square is Generali Real Estate. The lease was finalised by White Star Real Estate and Europa Capital on behalf of GEIH, an investment fund of the Generali Group. The office building offers modern first-class office space in the revitalised residence of Count Raczyński. It is located in central Warsaw, close to the Royal Route and near the Saxon Garden Park and Piłsudskiego Square.
“We are very satisfied with being the office choice for DWF as well as the fact that Generali’s commitment to sustainability is in line with the future path of DWF. We believe that the best workplaces are the ones which evolve with their users and adapt to the ever-changing and dynamic reality” says Romana Rakovská, Asset Manager Generali Real Estate CEE & Nordics.
