Maersk Line has leased office space in the office complex in Gdynia with construction works launched only a month ago
Gdynia, 27 November 2014 – Maersk Line, a global leader in container ship operations, has become the first tenant in the Tensor office complex developed by Euro Styl. The company will occupy a part of the 3rd floor of the complex’s building X. JLL acts as an exclusive agent for the Tensor complex.
Edyta Wojtkiewicz, Financial Director, Maersk Poland, said: “We had been searching for our office's location in Gdynia for quite some time. We are delighted that the office will be located in a modern building which is easily accessible and has numerous amenities on offer for employees. I am sure that our team will feel very positive about our new location”.
Mikołaj Konopka, Vice President, Euro Styl, commented: “I am glad that the tenant, which is a global player, has put trust in our company at an early phase of project development. We will make every effort to ensure that the cooperation with our new partner will be as efficient as possible. Furthermore, let me add that the development of building X goes forward according to plan and without any obstacles. We have acquired the construction permit for the whole complex and, having seen that the project is attracting tenants, we are planning to launch the construction works of Y office building in 2015.”
Magdalena Reńska, Associate Director, JLL, added: "Taking into account that the Tri-City’s office market has been registering high developer activity for longer period, it is a great achievement to sign a pre-lease agreement with Maersk Line. This underlines the complex’s attractiveness.”
Tensor is a class A office complex located at Łużycka 8 Street in Gdynia. The project includes three modern buildings - X, Y and Z, comprising a total of 20,000 sq m of office space. Completion of the investment's first stage - office building X with office space of 4,960 sq m, is scheduled for winter 2016. In total, the tenants of Tensor will have at their disposal 20,000 sq m of office space and 446 parking places. To provide comfortable working conditions, the complex will boast an internal patio, a pond and a relaxation area including a boules court. The surrounding green space has been preserved. Due to the vicinity of a bicycle route, Tensor will encourage commuting by bike and will provide parking bays, both indoors and out, as well as shower cubicles and locker rooms. The complex has been BREEAM precertified. The concept was designed by Degutis Studio.
Of key importance is the complex's location, on Łużycka Street, in Gdynia's most rapidly developing and largest office area. This part of the city boasts excellent access to public transport: bus stops, a Tri-City Fast Municipal Railway station, and the soon to be completed Pomeranian Metropolitan Railway, which connects Gdynia to Gdańsk airport and other Tri -City locations.
The modern office stock in the Tri-City totals 493,800 sq m. 65,000 sq m of this is not leased (the vacancy rate stands at 13.2% - as of the end of Q3). Furthermore, almost 92,000 sq m of office space is currently under construction and is scheduled for 2015 and 2016.
