Parties to the largest lease transaction in the history of the Polish office sector included Golub GetHouse and Mennica Polska SA, investors in the Warsaw-based Mennica Legacy Tower and mBank, which ultimately leased 45,600 sqm of the investment. The building has been fully commercialised a few months before the completion of construction works.

Mennica Legacy Tower, a skyscraper constructed at the intersection of Prosta and Zelazna streets in Warsaw, will also be home to the new Warsaw headquarters of mBank. In addition to office space, mBank also rented a conference centre and service space on the ground floor of the West Building, where it will create its flagship branch for clients.

The 140-metre-high Tower with the neighbouring 43-metre-high Western Building will offer a total of 65,630 sqm of modern office space. The project was designed by Chicago-based architecture firm Goettsch Partners, which decided to work with the well-established design consultants Epstein.

During the negotiation process, Golub GetHouse was supported by the law firm Greenberg Traurig Grzesiak sp.k. and consulting firm Colliers International, while mBank was advised by the law firm KM Partners Komorowska Michaliszyn Kancelaria Radców Prawnych i Doradców Podatkowych sp.p. and the consulting company Cresa.

mBank is the fourth largest bank in Poland in terms of balance-sheet total. It specializes in mobile banking. It was also the first online bank in Poland. It provides services to customers countrywide, as well as in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
