“MIPIM Awards 2017, which is the most important award on the property market, is the ultimate recognition of the work of Ghelamco Poland and of all the teams which helped us deliver the investment,” says Jeroen van der Toolen, Managing Director CEE, Ghelamco. “I would like to thank all those who believed in our vision by offering their knowledge, time and commitment to Warsaw Spire. The investment has redefined the image of Warsaw and has set entirely new standards in thinking about commercial construction,” adds van der Toolen.
Warsaw Spire, which has been recognised by the international jury, is a flagship project of the Belgian developer. Being 220 m high and offering 109,000 sq m of office space, the complex is the biggest and tallest office building in Poland. The investment has redefined Warsaw’s business centre and has become an icon of the dynamically growing capital. An integral part of Warsaw Spire is Plac Europejski (European Square), an urban space created at the foot of the skyscraper, in the previously inaccessible, post-industrial area.
Warsaw Spire is also an example of a spectacular commercial success. Less than a year after completion of the construction, 95 percent of the space in the building is already leased. The building will be home to international organisations, i.e. Adecco Poland, Benefit Systems, Bilfinger, BNP Paribas Securities Services, Calypso, Centre for EU Transport Projects, Compare King, Daftcode, Eleven Sports Network, Frontex, Ghelamco Poland, HSG Facility Management, JLL, MasterCard, Samsung, and The Heart Warsaw.
