Echo Investment has commissioned a second office building in My Place, a multifunctional project located in the Warsaw's Dolny Mokotów district. As a result, an urban quarter combining offices, residential and commercial premises has been completed.

The construction of My Place started in 2017. The plan of Echo Investment was to create a multifunctional part of Dolny Mokotów district that combines office buildings, apartments, service points and well-designed public space. In 2019, the developer completed the first part of the project – an office building with an area of nearly 19,000 sqm, which includes offices of companies such as Havas Group, CitySpace, ANG S.A. and Corteva. In July 2020, the occupancy permit was granted to the residential part of the project. The five buildings contain 243 apartments.

“Between Beethovena and Witosa streets, a multifunctional space for office workers, residents and visitors was created. By commissioning the second office building, and thus completing the construction of the entire complex, we've provided a total of 36,000 sqm of modern office space to the market. I am convinced that thanks to the diversity of the functions located here, everyone will be able to find their place here,” says Rafał Mazurczak, member of the management board of Echo Investment.

During the construction of the office part of the project, energy-efficient and pro-ecological solutions and technologies that support sustainable development were applied, as confirmed by the Excellent and Very Good certificates. The JEMS Architekci design studio was responsible for the architectural design of My Place.

“At the construction site of My Place, we've introduced strict procedures related to epidemiological safety as well as a high standard of HSE. All this allowed for the work to be carried out continuously. The second stage of the project with an area of over 17,000 sqm was built within 17 months and with that, we've completed the project in accordance with the planned schedule,” says Krzysztof Curyło, project manager in the office department of Echo Investment.

To ensure the safety of tenants, the developer has introduced the "Five for Safety" program in both office buildings, which is a set of rules and procedures promoting the health and safety of office users. Each manager of the Echo Investment office building has received such a guide with the most important applicable rules. It includes a description of the principles and actions related to standards for maintaining hygiene and safety.
