Cushman & Wakefield, the world’s largest privately owned real estate services firm, has been appointed property manager of the first phase of Green Horizon office complex, being developed by the developer of green office buildings Skanska Property Poland, part of the international Skanska Group.
Green Horizon is a Grade A office complex being constructed according to sustainable standards. Located at 107 Pomorska Street in Łódź, in close proximity to Solidarności roundabout, it will provide a total of 33,000 sq m of leasable area (a 19,000 sq m building A and a 14,000 sq m building B). The delivery of the first phase of the project (building A) is scheduled for Q4 2012. The seven-storey complex will accommodate a two-level underground car park for 395 car spaces with a separate bicycle parking area.
Green Horizon has been designed to meet the specific demands of BPO sector, with a special focus on information security. The key tenant is Infosys BPO Poland, one of the leading business process outsourcing companies, which will take 15,000 sq m. The building will also house the Łódź branch office of Skanska S.A. The complex will offer 2,500 sq m of retail space (1,500 sq m in phase one and 1,000 sq m in phase two), that will accommodate stores, service points and gastronomy area.
The office building has been designed by Medusa Group according to sustainable principles. The general constructor is Skanska S.A. In 2011 Green Horizon was awarded the LEED Gold pre-certificate and GreenBuilding certificate. The new technologies applied will reduce energy and water consumption. The building will feature energy efficient heating, air conditioning and lighting systems, with the use of low-emitting materials.
“Skanska Property Poland’s office projects are tailored to meet specific business needs of BPO companies. The key issues are location with best access to public transport, flexible fit-out, energy efficiency solutions and developer’s flexible approach to tenant’s requirements. That’s why our buildings are so appealing to companies from BPO sector. Green Horizon in Łódź with Infosys BPO as a key tenant is the best example,” said Arkadiusz Rudzki, Leasing and Asset Director of Skanska Property Poland.
“Green Horizon is an environmentally friendly building at the same time creating a healthy and comfortable climate for its users. Utility consumption savings will significantly reduce the occupancy costs,” said Aneta Rogowicz-Gała, Head of Property & Asset Management at Cushman & Wakefield.
