.KTW project in Katowice reaches completion
The first phase of the .KTW project being implemented by TDJ Estate in the heart of Katowice has been completed.
A three-level underground garage and a fourteen-storey structure of the first office building have been completed on the investment site. Prior to receiving the occupancy permit the investor concluded lease agreements covering approx. 60%. of available space. The first tenant will be here as early as in June.
The .KTW I office building was developed in the Katowice Culture Zone, in close proximity to the iconic Spodek Arena. The construction process lasted nearly two years. It was started with the execution of deep excavations which were accompanied by the construction of diaphragm walls marking out the area of the foundation plate under the entire .KTW complex. The completion of works related to the underground part of the structure enabled the construction works above the ground level, where a concrete structure of .KTW I was gradually being created to its final height of 66 meters. The office building received a BREEAM Interim certificate at the Excellent level.
The first tenant that will occupy the .KTW I office building will be EY Polska Katowice branch. The company has rented 915 sq. m. of office space located on the +7 level of the building. The office will begin its operation in the second week of June this year.
“The new EY office in Katowice was chosen mainly due to its excellent location in the heart of the city and due to the opportunities offered by a modern building of .KTW I. In the middle of June 100 people will start to work in the new building area. The office was designed in accordance with our philosophy of EY@Work which aims at creating a modern work environment as a tool supporting the provision of services at the highest level as well as at attracting the best specialists to the EY company,” says Leszek Lerch, Partner, Director of EY regional offices.
The target operation of the building will be launched on 1st June this year. In the following months .KTW I will gradually be occupied by the tenants.
