The company is responsible for leasing office and retail space in this spectacular investment developed by Ghelamco in Warsaw
Warsaw, 28 August 2017 – Advisory firm JLL has been selected as the exclusive leasing agent for office and retail space located in Ghelamco's biggest investment in Poland to date – The Warsaw HUB.
The complex will consist of three skyscrapers in the business centre of Warsaw, on the crossroads of Prosta and Towarowa Streets. It will offer approx. 113,000 sq m of multi-functional space including top-tier quality offices, conference and sports centres as well as three and four-star hotels. Furthermore, tenants will have access to an extensive range of shops, services and restaurants (amounting to approx. 6,000 sq m). A unique advantage of the complex will be its direct access to a metro station.
Innovative space for start-ups
“The Warsaw HUB will fully address the needs of modern, creative and innovative companies that seek top-quality solutions – comments Jarosław Zagórski, Commercial & Business Development Director, Ghelamco Poland – “It is another project developed by Ghelamco that will create a new business centre next to the Daszyńskiego roundabout in the heart of Warsaw”.
The Warsaw HUB - a technologically advanced complex - will combine all the functions that are necessary for the business activities of modern corporations and start-ups. The Warsaw HUB will serve as the office location of The Heart – the first Poland-based start-up platform operating on a pan-European scale that links innovative technological companies with the largest Polish, regional and global corporations. The complex will offer its tenants co-working space of top-tier quality – MeetDistrict. This will allow small companies to also lease space at The Warsaw HUB.
“We are very happy to have the opportunity to continue our co-operation with Ghelamco. After the spectacular success of Warsaw Spire, it is now high time for The Warsaw HUB. It will comprise a remarkably innovative project characterized by cutting-edge technologies, the highest standard of space, an extensive services proposition and unique public space” – comments Tomasz Czuba, Regional Director, Head of Office Agency, JLL.
Technologies and services
The Warsaw HUB will offer its tenants office space equipped with innovative technological solutions such as access to the building with the use of smartphones, a parking lot equipped with car-recognition systems, a car wash and a charging station for electric cars. A distinguishing characteristic of the project will also be the net height of office space (2.8 m) and LED lighting systems that will provide 500 lux throughout the office space. Furthermore, the complex will also be characterized by a wide retail and restaurant proposition.
“The complex will also include space for a food market, drugstore, services, along with other points that will contribute to the comfort of the complex’s future tenants. Furthermore, there are also plans for establishing a well-developed gastronomic area that will include original restaurant and café concepts”, adds Mariusz Czerwiak, Associate Director, Retail Agency, JLL.
Public spaces and the city-forming role of The Warsaw HUB
The developer will also take care of the surrounding urban tissue. The skyscrapers (two 130-meter and one 85-meter high buildings) will create a consistent frontage along Towarowa Street and will become a recognizable landmark on Rondo Daszyńskiego roundabout that will be visible from many parts of Warsaw. The space along the complex, both on Towarowa Street and at the rear of the complex, will offer an attractively designed public space. Similarly, as in the case of the adjacent Plac Europejski square, the space will include a wide range of cafes, restaurants and service points. The Warsaw HUB will be the first building in Poland to ensure direct access to the second metro line. Because of this, people who do not work at the complex will still have the opportunity to use the facilities and amenities provided by The Warsaw Hub.
The project was developed by the renowned architectural studio of Andrzej M. Chołdzyński – the author of the station of the central part of the second metro line, and the headquarters of the Warsaw Stock Exchange, among others. The construction works on The Warsaw HUB commenced at the end of 2016 with completion scheduled for Q1 2020.
Office and retail leasing experts from JLL are responsible for the commercialization of The Warsaw HUB.
