MidPoint71, an office building developed by Echo Investment in Wrocław, will become the new head office of the Business Service Centre of 3M. The tenant will move into the new location in the first quarter of 2022.

Echo Investment has been present in Wrocław since 2007 and the developer's first office project became part of the Wrocław landscape 10 years ago. MidPoint71 is Echo Investment's seventh office project developed in the city. The building is being built in Wrocław's central location at 9 Powstańców Śląskich Street and will provide 36,000 sqm of modern space.

“MidPoint71 is, above all, a fantastic location, which offers many opportunities: access to public transport, shopping centres and a number of other services located in the city center. This is a magnet for tenants, as well as their employees. Flexible and modern office space, elegant architecture, interesting green terraces are additional advantages. 3M GSC Poland appreciated them all, choosing our project for its head office in Wrocław,” says Katarzyna Kubicka, regional director at Echo Investment's office department. “Our agreement is a confirmation that companies continue to develop and need stable workplaces, and the Wrocław office market remains attractive for them," she adds.

3M GSC Poland is a shared services center providing specialized business services to more than 50 countries in the EMEA region. The Wrocław branch is one of three 3M Shared Services Centers worldwide and is a crucial  element of the American company's global strategy. The company will occupy 12,300 square meters of space in the MidPoint71 building.

“3M GSC Poland is recognized as one of the best workplaces in Poland. For 5 years it has been consistently ranked among the top ten companies in the prestigious Great Place to Work® ranking. Since 2015 we have been constantly developing and increasing employment. Today we have over 1,200 employees on board. Creating the best working conditions is extremely important to us and at the same time it’s challenging. Especially in times of the pandemic, we have focused on learning about changing preferences and different ways of taking advantage of offices. That's why while choosing a new location we wanted to provide both shared space for all teams, as well as to create a flexible hybrid work model to meet the new needs of our employees,” says Vangelis Savvas, Director of 3M GSC Poland.

In the process of selecting the location and lease agreement negotiations 3M GSC Poland was represented by the consulting company Colliers.
