The international law firm Allen & Overy has leased almost 2,600 sqm of office space in the Mennica Legacy Tower. This is the first lease agreement for the complex, developed by Golub GetHouse and Mennica Polska S.A., at the junction of Prosta and Żelazna streets in Warsaw.
Czarek Jarząbek, Founder and CEO, Golub GetHouse, said: “We are delighted that such a prestigious and innovative company appreciates the Mennica Legacy Tower’s qualities. This renowned law firm will move to our building from a different prestigious location in the center of Warsaw, the Rondo 1 skyscraper, which is another reason for us to be proud. We are convinced that our building, which is a symbol of the changes taking place in the district of Wola, will provide Allen & Overy with the highest level of operational comfort thanks to its innovative functionality and unique architecture.”
Allen & Overy’s offices will be located on the 17th and 18th floors of the skyscraper, and the agreement has been signed for ten years. In the negotiations, Allen & Overy was represented by the Colliers International and Golub GetHouse was advised by Greenberg Traurig Grzesiak sp.k. law firm.
Arkadiusz Pędzich, Managing Partner at Allen & Overy, said, “Mennica Legacy Tower is one of the best locations in Warsaw for innovative businesses. Given the highest standard of the space available for lease, state-of-the-art technical solutions and a proactive approach to clients’ expectations, we have decided to choose this office building. This new location will create many opportunities in implementing the latest and the most innovative design and technical solutions which will support A&O’s strategy, and meet our clients’ and our staff’s expectations.” The 140-meter high tower with a neighboring 43-meter high Western building will offer a total of 65,630 sqm of modern office space. The project was designed by the renowned Chicago-based architecture firm Goettsch Partners, which decided to work with the well-established design consultant Epstein.
The Mennica Legacy Tower will combine unique architecture, functionality and top-quality finishing. Both buildings will feature advanced technological systems that will increase the continuity and reliability of the buildings’ systems as well as improve the security of tenants. The entire investment is going to be completed in line with the demanding requirements of the BREAAM international certificate with an ‘Outstanding’ rating. At the construction site, the first vertical elements are now being put in place at ground level. At the same time, structural work has begun in the underground levels. The entire complex will open in autumn 2019.
