Ghelamco Poland has signed a record-breaking agreement for the lease of office space at Warsaw Spire. The new tenant will take nearly 22,000 square metres in the A-class building whose occupancy rate has now soared to over 50%.

The new tenant will occupy 22 000 square metres, a fifth of the total office area at Warsaw Spire, becoming the building’s biggest tenant. This is the largest office lease transaction ever concluded in Warsaw City Center, as well as one of the country’s biggest ones.

“Warsaw Spire and plac Europejski make up an investment that is unique in terms of scale and quality alike. It is bound to change the public space at Rondo Daszyñskiego considerably," commented Jeroen van der Toolen, Managing Director at Ghelamco CEE.

“We are conducting the project holistically, in line with sustainable development principles. The crucial objective is to ensure unparalleled spatial order and a well-balanced combination of commercial and public functions. We believe that Warsaw Spire will become a new symbol of modern and economically powerful Warsaw," he added.

 


“Warsaw Spire is the capital’s new business center created by us close to Rondo Daszyñskiego. There are a lot of companies willing to have their headquarters here. Negotiations with further tenants interested in both office space and the retail units at plac Europejski are in progress," noted Jaroslaw Zagórski, Commercial and Business Development Director, and Board Member at Ghelamco Poland.

The tenant was advised by JLL.

“The agreement is the biggest lease transaction on the office market in downtown Warsaw," added Karol Patynowski, Associate Director, Tenant Representation at JLL.

He also noted that the deal also involved consolidating the company’s R&D functions from three different locations around the city.
