BGŻ BNP Paribas joined the group of tenants in the Warsaw Spektrum Tower office. It rented 1300 sq. m in the building. The new office will be a headquarters for several entities of the group. The bank was supported by BNP Paribas Real Estate consulting company during signing of the contract.
The result of the recent merger of Bank BGŻ and BNP Paribas Bank Poland is a portfolio of long-term lease contracts of offices in Warsaw. A big challenge was to determine how to both obtain savings and make operational synergies between particular entities in order to reduce the future costs of lease. We have conducted research of the market to estimate potential options which meet requirements concerning terms, enable effective planning of space and provide flexibility in planning of an attractive place, which will attract future employees. Spektrum Tower can boost about totally renovated office space at the very heart of the city center, which is perfectly adjusted to the needs of our business clients – says Michael Richardson, Chairman of Department of Corporation Solutions, BNP Paribas Real Estate Poland.
The next step after merger is to concentrate our cooperating entities in one place. Therefore, we needed a prestigious and conveniently situated office area in order our offer could meet expectations of even the most demanding clients. A kind of space which would be perfect for us, our employees and our clients – says Jarosław Frączek, Chairman of Department of Properties and Administration, Bank BGŻ BNP Paribas.
Spektrum Tower is situated at Twarda 18 Street in Warsaw. It is a 122-meter-high building, where there are more than 28 000 sq. m of modern office space. The lowest floors of the office are occupied by service and commercial areas, where canteen, medical clinic and fitness zone are located. Tenants of the structure can also benefit from 314 parking places. The building is in the portfolio of properties owned by Europa Funds.
