The Saski Crescent office building, located in Warsaw, at the intersection of Marszłakowska and Królewska streets, will offer more than 15,000 sqm of office space after renovation. The procedure will be completed in 2024. 

"Successively increasing the energy efficiency of the building stock is one of the biggest challenges for the real estate sector. With the planned renovation of Saski Crescent, we will be able to offer the Warsaw office market a completely new and attractive product, while at the same time taking another step towards achieving CA Immo's climate targets. The boutique character of the building, its prestigious location, the surrounding greenery and proximity to the park, convenient connections to Warsaw's public transportation network, and the green solutions for optimised energy efficiency, which also enable savings in operating costs, are unique assets of this project. In addition, the new Saski Crescent will offer attractive common areas that tenants can use for less formal meetings and exchanges. In this modernization project, we are focusing on those elements that bring the greatest benefit to both our tenants and the environment", said Andrzej Mikołajczyk, Managing Director at CA Immo in Poland

In line with CA Immo’s strategic focus on Class A, green office buildings, the modernization of Saski Crescent aims at both people’s comfort and functionalities supporting environmentally and climate-friendly building operations. Modernized systems like a digital Building Management System (BMS), Smart Meters and new technological solutions for optimal ventilation quality, overall thermal comfort and energy-efficient lighting are expected to lead to a significant increase in building energy efficiency and tenant comfort. The renovation process is designed to lead to a 30% reduction in Primary Energy Demand (PED) of the building, resulting in energy consumption which is 40% below the European average specified by the ESG Index ( The planned reduction in PED is in line with the Technical Screening Criteria for renovation of existing buildings as defined by the EU Taxonomy Regulation.

Like all CA Immo properties in Poland, Saski Crescent is 100% powered by renewable electricity. On-site renewable energy will be additionally generated through the installation of photovoltaic panels on the roof.

In addition, CA Immo will implement a new, functional design for the common areas of the building. With the building's users in mind, CA Immo will introduce new services like a small gym, as well as facilities for cyclists and electric car users. Saski Crescent will be certified according to BREEAM (Excellent level) and WELL Core & Shell standards. By using intelligent digital solutions that support efficient use of the building, CA Immo is also aiming for WiredScore certification. In the next step, the neighbouring Saski Point office building will also be converted in a similar way.
