Lakeside, a sustainable office building which will be located in Warsaw's Mokotów district, has secured its first tenant, Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). The investment owned by ATENOR, a Belgian development company, is scheduled for completion in Q4 2023. In the negotiation process the tenant was represented by Cushman & Wakefield. JLL's team of experts is responsible for the preparation and implementation of the leasing strategy.
“The Lakeside office building has been designed primarily for the comfort of its users, taking into account factors that have a positive effect on people’s health and well-being. The investment will be our company's first new building in Warsaw, and we are very pleased to welcome HPE as Lakeside’s first tenant”, concludes Karolina Pawłowska Leasing & Development Manager, ATENOR Poland.
Lakeside, an office building of approximately 24,000 sqm, will replace University Business Center I, one of two buildings purchased by ATENOR in Warsaw’s Mokotów district in May 2018. Attractively located by a lake, the project is set in green surroundings. Also noteworthy is the office building’s proximity to Pulawska and Rzymowskiego streets as well as a tram terminus. In addition, the Wilanowska metro station is only 3 tram stops way. Lakeside was designed by Grupa 5 Architekci.
Modern, well-designed and sustainable office developments are currently in high demand among technology companies. And Lakeside already boasts BREEAM pre-certification at the Outstanding level and pre-certification WELL Gold as well. For ATENOR, which is committed to the idea of developing sustainable cities, this was a priority. We are very pleased that HPE is set to become one of Lakeside’s first tenants. We are convinced that the office building will be both the perfect place for its Warsaw HQ and provide employees with the best working conditions and a comfortable environment.
"Cushman & Wakefield were delighted to represent our client, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, in securing a lease for office space, storage and parking in ATENOR’s Lakeside development. This allows HPE to continue operations in an area of Warsaw that they are familiar with and from 2023 in a modern, energy-efficient and comfortable building which we are sure their employees will enjoy working in. The negotiation process was smooth, and we’d like to thank everyone involved in bringing this transaction to a successful conclusion”, says Ian Scattergood, Partner, Office Agency, Cushman & Wakefield.

With our employees in mind, we have implemented a hybrid working model, which requires more innovative space and adjustment to the new needs. The choice of the right partner was not random. We looked for a space designed to accommodate our new requirements based on sustainable development principles, that are at the center of our business”, concludes Michał Zajączkowski, Managing Director of HPE Polska.
