As a target, the investment will be composed of two office buildings (Porto Office A and Porto Office B) class A. The building of Porto Office B was commenced in December 2015. Except for office space, the investment will also offer commercial and service areas to its tenants. Porto Office B is situated in the Krakow Dębniki district at Zielińskiego Street. Interestingly, a big-sized park (more than 60 ha) is to be realized on the area of the Zakrzówek dam adjacent to the investment in the nearest future. It will be an added value to the office investment.

Its shape in the letter L will offer 5500 sq. m of space, whereas Porto Office A of the size amounting to more than 7000 sq. m will be realized within the second stage. It will be prepared on the rectangle plan with the internal green patio. The complex will offer 115 parking places, the great majority of which will be located in the underground garage. This investment was registered as a candidate for LEED Gold. Tenants will move into Porto Office B in March 2017. The architectural design of the complex was prepared in the Krakow IMB Asymetria studio.
