Skyliner construction has launched
Karimpol Polska’s subsidiary SPEKTRUM REAL Sp. z o.o. has signed a general contract for the construction of the Skyliner office tower at Rondo Daszyńskiego in Warsaw with Warbud SA.
The construction work starts on 1st September 2017 and will last until mid-2020. Skyliner will be 195 metres tall, placing it among the top office buildings in Warsaw. It will provide nearly 44,000 square metres of rentable area. The project will be financed with a loan from Pekao SA Bank.
Skyliner has been designed by the architectural studio APA Wojciechowski. The building will comprise 30 office levels and 4 commercial levels available both to the tenants and Warsaw inhabitants. They will offer more than 3 thousand square metres of shops, restaurants, cafés and fitness clubs. The immediate vicinity of the building will be friendly to passers-by, who will be able to use the commercial and catering offer of the building. Additionally, at 165 metres, there will be two levels of the Skybar with a view of the city skyline, which can be accessed by a dedicated lift.
The building is located at a perfect place at Rondo Daszyńskiego, next to the second underground line, as well as stops of five tram lines and seven bus lines. The reception of the office building will be only 7 metres away from the entrance to the underground station. The entrance to the five-level car park for 428 cars can be accessed from two sides: Prosta Street and Towarowa Street. The underground levels will offer 500 bicycle spaces and locker facilities for bikers. Skyliner is rated Excellent in the BREEAM certification system. The office building complies with the highest standards of construction, functional space planning, efficiency of solutions, as well as performance.
“We announce the start of construction of Skyliner with a great pleasure. It is the biggest and the most prestigious investment not only in Poland but also in all operations of our Group in Central and Eastern Europe. We are also very glad because 2017 is the 20th anniversary of our office in Warsaw and a great moment in the history of our operation on the Polish market,” said Harald Jeschek, Managing Partner of Karimpol Group.
The project is not the first collaboration between Karimpol Polska and Warbud SA. Both companies are currently working jointly to construct the Equator IV office building at Aleje Jerozolimskie 100. Warbud SA was also the general contractor for the office buildings Taifun, Mistral and Passat at Aleje Jerozolimskie in 2000 – 2006.
