Best the competition

In Cracow, competition in business real estate market is strong. There are companies, previously not connected with this particular sector, making investments. Fronton is one of such companies.

Craccow is the second in Poland according to office space it features. Supply of office space exceeded 500 000 m2, this means investors are going to have a bad time. They will have to try harder to attract new customers because modern office blocks offer much more than one could imagine just few years ago.

Great localization, convenient connection with the city centre, intelligent interior solutions, and appealing design are criteria that must be met. And investors do meet the criteria above, just as Fronton Office Center does it. The building has 6 storeys, it consits of 3 blocks which make "L" shape together and its office space is 5 720 m2. Added to that, space the builing offers is of excellent quality.
