Skanska has attained an occupancy permit for the third building of Silesia Business Park in Katowice. The office complex is one of the biggest office parks in Katowice and already has lease agreements signed for over 23,000 sqm of space.

“According to our business plan, every next stage was to start with the progress of the commercialization of the previous building. Today, there are over 3,100 employees from different companies and industries working in the complex. This was a place where there was literally nothing, but we were able to breathe life back into a space where global international brands conduct their operations while their employees are willing to creatively spend their leisure time after work”, comments Mariusz Krzak, Regional Director at Skanska Property Poland.

Silesia Business Park office complex, which will ultimately consist of four, twin-like office towers, is developed on the area of the former Baildon Steelworks. Leasable space within each LEED Gold certified building will amount to 12,000 sqm. The architectural design was created by Medusa Group Studio, the general contractor is Skanska S.A., while Skanska Property Poland is responsible for commercialization of the complex.

In October 2015, buildings A and B were purchased by a fund managed by Swedish investor Niam.
