Alior Bank, a leading Polish bank, has renewed its lease and expanded its Warsaw office to 13,600 sq m at Łopuszańska Business Park. The owner of the office complex is Starwood Capital Group. A team of Cushman & Wakefield’s Office Agency experts advised on the transaction, which was the largest office deal signed in Warsaw’s non-central locations since Q1 2015.
Łopuszańska Business Park comprises two six-floor office buildings providing 16,800 sq m of modern office space. It is located in Warsaw’s Włochy district, near the junction of Jerozolimskie Avenue and Łopuszańska Street, major exit roads from the capital city. The complex has been BREEAM certified.
Alior Bank SA is one of the fastest growing banks in Poland providing services for both retail and corporate clients. It combines traditional banking with pioneering solutions and sets new trends in the Polish banking sector with its innovative products, operational efficiency and services. Its shares are included in the WIG20 index of the Warsaw Stock Exchange.
“We have been present at Łopuszańska Business Park for over three years. We are confident that our decision to consolidate our Warsaw offices and Head Office in this location is the best solution to improve communication and operational efficiency. Favourable lease conditions, space availability and fit-out flexibility on the landlord’s side also played a part in our decision to remain at the complex. Our top priority was to provide our employees with a comfortable working environment at an optimal location and time,” said Kamila Skibińska, Head of the Logistics Department, Alior Bank SA.
“The office market witnessed a very strong first half of the year with our team working on some of the largest deals. Building on the full trust of our clients, we are able to complete non-standard transactions delivering significant benefits. Alior Bank had set very ambitious business goals, but the smooth cooperation and commitment of its design team ensured the timely completion of the project on excellent financial conditions. Thanks to the trust of our clients with whom and for whom we successfully deliver office projects, Cushman & Wakefield is the market’s leading office agency in terms of the leasing volume in the first half of 2017,” said Krzysztof Misiak, Partner, and Piotr Capiga, Senior Negotiator, Office Agency, Cushman & Wakefield.
