A modern office space being developed in Galeria Młociny will be another facility occupied by Inter Cars. The project, located in Warsaw’s Bielany district, is implemented jointly by EPP and Echo Investment. The Polish distributor will occupy two buildings with a total area of approximately 6,000 sqm. Inter Cars was advised on negotiations of the lease agreement by the Axi Immo agency.
The company, which has been listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange since 2004, will occupy all three office floors located in two separate buildings with two reception areas on the ground floor. In addition to the fact that Galeria Młociny is easily reached by public transportation, employees and guests of Inter Cars will have at their disposal parking spaces available on the car park and numerous amenities – energy-efficient lifts, charging stations for electric vehicles and bicycle racks.
“Inter Cars was looking for a new office space, which, apart from a criterion for a location with wide access to public transport, would offer an above-standard number of parking spaces with convenient access. The choice of Galeria Młociny turned out to be the best solution,” says Emil Chwieduk, Senior Office Negotiator of AXI IMMO.
The new offices of Inter Cars will be a part of Galeria Młociny, a new center of Bielany being built in the vicinity of a metro station and a transport hub. It is one of the best communicated location in the capital, with easy access by car, bike, but above all public transport. Every year, over 24 million passengers use this important interchange point.
A huge advantage of the location of Inter Cars offices will also be access to an attractive commercial, service, restaurant and entertainment offer of Galeria Młociny. Next year, over 220 stores of well-known and popular brands and various service outlets will be waiting for employees here. One of the most modern and largest fitness clubs in this part of the city will be opened in Galeria Młociny. The training rooms at Calypso will be located on two levels and will take up approximately 2,000 sqm in total. What is important from the point of view of office workers is that there will also be at hand a private medical centre and the first multiplex cinema in Bielany.
“New offices are not only 6,000 sqm of modern and comfortable work space. It gives also a chance to unwind in a green garden, have lunch in one of the trendy restaurants or to arrange important matters in a shop or service point. Everything important at work and after work will be at the fingertips of Inter Cars employees,” says Paweł Milcarz, Senior Leasing Manager in Office Department at Echo Investment.
A trademark of Galeria Młociny will be a restaurant and entertainment area, which will occupy the entire second storey and will be connected with the green garden on the roof. Office employees, same as guests of the shopping center, will be able to take advantage of nearly 50 restaurants and cafes located in different zones. Next year, Bielany will be enriched by not only cosy restaurants good for business talks at the table, but also refreshment facilities, street-food pubs and food-trucks. A novelty will be Hala Hutnik that is inspired by the well-known exhibition and restaurant halls. The industrial decor of this place will include structures assembled with containers, trusses, copper elements, factory lighting, as well as massive wooden benches and tables.
“Galeria Młociny presents a new face of shopping centres. We are heading towards a destination, which is a meeting place where you can spend your free time well. It’s worth mentioning about a bold approach to the restaurant and entertainment area. We are preparing an attractive, open-access space, open to people and the city. The space that tenants from various culinary worlds will fill,” says Szymon Mińczuk, Regional Leasing Director of Echo Investment’s Shopping Centre Department, responsible for commercial and service space.
Investors of Galeria Młociny are: Echo Investment (30 pct shares) and EPP (70 pct shares). The first company is fully responsible for the development process and the commercialization of the project. The second one will manage the newly-opened complex.
