Despite exceptional circumstances, Atenor is continuing its operations with the same drive and announces that a building permit application for its first project in Warsaw has been submitted by Atenor Polish subsidiary, Haverhill Investment Sp. z o.o.

In May 2019, Atenor signed an agreement, through its Polish subsidiary, relating to the acquisition of two buildings, known as University Business Center, in Warsaw. The two buildings (UBC I and UBC II) are located on Szturmowa Street, next to the dynamic area of the Warsaw Chopin Airport. This “business corridor” is targeted by companies searching for a financially affordable alternative for their location.

The submitted building permit includes the demolition of the first existing building (UBC I) and the construction of the new Class A building with 24,000 sqm of rentable area. The new building will offer a wide set of amenities for tenants including canteen and coffee corner, childcare, facilities for cyclists and charging points for electric vehicles.

Lots of efforts have been put into designing the building installations, especially a top-level ventilation system. The building is going to be certified in BREEAM at the Outstanding level. It will also apply for the WELL certification.

To carry out this project, Atenor selected Grupa 5, an architectural firm with significant experience in office buildings in Mokotow.

The issuance of the building permit is expected for autumn 2020, whereas the start of the demolition and construction works is scheduled for April 2021. The construction period is programmed over a 24-month period.

In parallel, the second building (UBC 2), more recent, will be temporarily maintained in its original state. The 27,800 sqm building is currently fully rented to renowned tenants such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise, HP Inc, DXC Technology, Emerson Process Management, Ashland Ingredients Poland.
