Skanska has invested EUR 52M, about SEK 540 M, in the first phase of an office development in Wrocław, Poland.
The first-phase with a total leasable area of around 26,000 square meters will consist of two buildings, 15 and six stories high, with a shared two-level underground parking lot.
The project is Skanska’s seventh office development in Wrocław. This five-building complex will be delivered in four phases and offer a total leasable area of around 85,000 square meters. The office complex is expected to receive LEED Platinum certification, as well as a WELL Building Standard certificate and a “Building without barriers” certificate.
The new office development will be situated along one of the city's major arterial routes and will benefit from excellent visibility from street level. It is only a 15-minute walk away from Wrocław's Old Town, a ten-minute walk from the city's main railway station and bus terminal, as well as being in close proximity to academic institutions and residential areas.
Construction of the first phase started in July 2018 and is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2020.
