Residents of Poznan can already admire the Maraton office building developed by Skanska Property Poland on Królowej Jadwigi Street. This modern office project comprising six floors above ground has just reached its planned height for phase I of the project. Last Thursday, a symbolic topping out ceremony, where the last piece of a building is put into place, was held on the rooftop of the Maraton building.
The topping out ceremony was attended by representatives of the project’s tenants, its developer as well as construction workers from Skanska S.A., the building’s general contractor. Maraton is being developed with a focus on investors who have committed their future to Poznan and, as a result, representatives from Poznan’s Investor Assistance Department were invited as special guests. The building has attracted a great deal of interest from prospective tenants. Its advantages have already been recognized by companies from the business services sector. Thanks to agreements for office space signed by three tenants – Duni European Finance Function, Bridgestone and APS, the project is already 25 percent commercialized.
Maraton is located in the city centre and will have a total leasable space of 25,000 sqm. An important advantage of the project will be a grassed patio complete with fountains available to the public as well as grassed terraces on its rooftop. Construction works are on track with its completion scheduled for the end of 2016. Currently, the development works has entered a new phase with the installation of the building’s elevation.
