PwC, one of the leading international consulting companies that has been operating on the Polish market for over 26 years, has decided to expand its Warsaw office in the International Business Center by 3,600 sqm, occupying now over 13,700 sqm of office space. Deka Immobilien, the owner of the building, was represented by Savills in the transaction.
PwC offers business, tax and legal consulting services as well as audit. PwC has been operating on the Polish market for over 26 years employing over 3,500 people in eight offices located in Gdańsk, Katowice, Kraków, Łódź, Poznań, Rzeszów, Wrocław and Warsaw as well as in the Center of Excellence in Gdańsk and Service Delivery Center in Katowice.
“PwC Poland employs over 3,500 people already,” said Michał Gołębiewski, PwC Poland. “We are constantly developing our services. We completed the acquisition of Outbox Group, bolstering our portfolio by IT solutions (CRM, e-commerce), as well as Fern Partners, that specialises in pricing strategies. Also a group of brand strategist joined our team recently.”
Daniel Czarnecki, Portfolio Manager, Office Department, Landlord Representation, Savills, said: “A recognizable building, with a good exposition of the company logo on the façade together with the possibility of expansion within one complex, is an important asset for the biggest consulting companies. In addition, for such large employers, convenient access to public transport is also vital. The proximity of the Warsaw School of Economics and the Warsaw University of Technology, as well as the Pole Mokotowskie metro station and Zbawiciela Square are both advantages in the context of attracting young candidates. IBC offers all these qualities.”
The International Business Center is an A+ office complex offering over 36,000 sqm of space in two buildings. The building is located in the immediate vicinity of public transport stops and the Metro Politechnika metro station. Savills is the exclusive agent for IBC. The property is part of the portfolio of the open-ended real estate fund Deka-Immobilien Europa.
