Skanska invests EUR 36 M, about SEK 360 M, in the fourth building of High5ive, a five-building office complex located in Krakow, Poland. The building under construction will offer a total leasable area of about 24,600 square meters.
High5ive, Skanska’s largest office development in Krakow, has a central location next to Krakow’s main railway station and shopping mall. The first two buildings have been delivered. Internationally known companies such as ABB and PwC are amongst the tenants as well as Business Link, the biggest Polish flexible office space chain.
The complex will ultimately comprise five office buildings with a total leasable area of about 70,000 square meters. Buildings 3 and 4 will receive LEED certificate (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) on Platinum level.
