The Warsaw HUB attracts tenants 2 years before project completion
The complex will include two hotels, offices and amenities.
The Warsaw HUB is being erected in the fast developing part of Warsaw, i.e. at Rondo Daszyńskiego in Wola district, at the junction of Towarowa and Prosta streets. The complex will consist of three skyscrapers: two 130-metre office towers and the 86-metre hotel building. All the buildings will be joined by a five-storey foundation, which will create a big-city frontage along the Towarowa Street.
Ghelamco has signed the first letters of intent for almost 15,500 sqm of office space. The convenience area also draws much attention of the tenants – letters of intent have been signed for almost 1,500 sqm. Lease agreements will be signed soon.
“Today we can say that The Warsaw HUB draws a huge interest. At the moment we have tenants for almost 38,000 sqm. It means that 33% of the space is booked or leased 2 years before the delivery of the project,” says Jarosław Zagórski, Commercial and Business Development Director at Ghelamco Poland.
In addition, Ghelamco has signed an agreement with InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the biggest hotel chains in the world. Two brands of this company, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express, will be part of The Warsaw HUB. Over 430 comfortable rooms and suites will be located in the 86-meter tower of The Warsaw HUB complex. This will be the largest facility managed by IHG in Poland and the second largest hotel building in Warsaw. The four-star Crowne Plaza will be also the brand’s first hotel in the country. It will offer around 212 rooms and suites, while the Holiday Inn Express will have approximately 218. The Crowne Plaza will include a restaurant on the first floor, a 2,000 sqm conference center and a bar with a terrace on the 21st floor. The hotels will also offer cafes, bars and a fitness club. Both brands will occupy more than 21,000 sqm in The Warsaw HUB.
“InterContinental group’s brands offer top quality hospitality services. We are happy that Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn Express will supplement The Warsaw HUB’s offering. The complex is located in the new business center of Warsaw, right next to the Warsaw Uprising Museum and Plac Europejski. It will also have direct access to the second metro line, which will take you to Nowy Świat and Krakowskie Przedmieście streets in a matter of minutes. Thus the hotels will be attractive both to tourists and business customers,” adds Jeroen van der Toolen, Managing Director CEE, Ghelamco.
The 113,000 sqm of space will also host state-of-the-art office space, a conference center, commercial outlets, and a fitness club. In the Warsaw HUB, there will also be a place for MeetDistrict, a unique co-working space which has been successful in Ghelamco’s Belgian investments. Ultimately, The Warsaw HUB will also be home to The Heart Warsaw, a center of cooperation between corporations and startups, now based in Warsaw Spire. The investment is scheduled to be completed in early 2020.
