The office building rises near Pilotów 10 street and its construction began in September 2012. It will offer 10 000 sq meters of space. Half of it have been already hired to Alma Market S. A. and dependent companies.
We construct the building with 14 ground levels that will distinguish oneself thanks to its innovative elevation. We plan to commission the building in May 2014. Keeping in mind the comfort of future lessees, all materials used during the construction of Alma Tower will be eco friendly and user friendly as well. The building received pre certificate LEED – CS 2009 on the highest, platinum level while being under construction- Peter Obernhuber, Board Member of UBM Polska emphasizes.
