AMC – Andrzej M. Chołdzyński Sp. z o.o. has undertaken a difficult task of designing an office building near Nowy Świat in Warsaw. The architects had to design a building, which will not only fit into the parcel of land, but also be attractive, surrounded by both historic Dom Partii, erected in 1950s, and Centrum Giełdowe, which is among others a seat of the Warsaw Stock Exchange and National Depository for Securities, Poland. The first step to turn visualisations into reality has already been made.
The design presupposes creation of a city square, located in the extension of Dom Partii's courtyard. This procedure is to bring into prominence the entry to the new building. Shops will appear on the ground floor and the mezzanine, whereas higher storeys of the building will be occupied by offices.
CBF Nowy Świat is to become an exemplar of a building realised in accordance with ideology of sustainable construction. Therefore, the architects plan using first-class materials, including glass, steel, stone, architectural concrete or timber facings. The design comprises also of solutions, which allow energy-saving and lowering emission of harmful substances. The investment will be also charecterised by systems which would facilitate water-saving and enhancing the quality of internal environment. The investor wants the design to gain energy certificate A and environmental certification LEED.
The results of designers' and general contractor's activities will be seen in 2015, when the commission of the new building is scheduled. People interested in lease will be able to choose spaces from 4 100 m2 located on five overground storeys. Additionally, about 1 800 m2 of service and retail space is planned on -1 level, the ground floor and the mezzanine. Lessees will have at their disposal about 40 parking places on two levels of underground garage. These are not the only parking places planned by the investor. As a part of the development of the complex by multi-storey underground parking lot on Aleje Jerozolimskie's side, 119 additional parking places are to be created.
