GTC acquires two prestigious tenants for its Wrocław investment – GLOBIS Wrocław. One year prior to completion of construction works the firm has rented out 1,600 square metres at the facility.
Globe Trade Centre S.A. (GTC) has signed lease agreements for 1,600 square metres of office space at GLOBIS Wroclaw. The first tenants, Raiffeisen Bank and the AJ Tarkowski Notary office will move into the new offices on the works completion which is due in the first half 2008.
Raiffeisen Bank will occupy the total of 1,250 square metres at GLOBIS Wrocław. The retail department will be based on the ground floor, and the first floor will accommodate the bank’s regional office. The AJ Tarkowski notary firm will lease 350 square metres for its office.
GLOBIS is GTC’s first office investment in Wrocław and it is being developed by GTC Globis Wrocław, a partnership 100%-owned by Globe Trade Centre S.A. It is being constructed at the junction of Powstańców Śląskich i Swobodna streets, in direct proximity to the newly built shopping centre, Arkady Wrocławskie, and the many commercial and residential investments nearby, not far from the main railway and bus stations. The new office building will consist of 12 levels, 11 with an average space of 1,200 square metres for offices, and the ground floor with 850 square metres of shopping and amenity space.
The office space has been designed so as to accommodate offices of one or several tenants. The design project and the building’s shape will allow for effective layout of the space and an easy access of daylight, providing for comfortable work places.
The GLOBIS Wroclaw architectural project has been developed by Wroclaw’s Studio EL architects under the supervision of Mr. Edward Lach. Mr. Lach has designed a modern compact longitudinal bloc, stretching along the Powstańców Śląskich street. The building’s crowning point is the transparent glass corner which will be the main entrance. A car park for 200 cars will be built under the ground.
IK Development and Knight Frank agencies will be in charge of the space lease at GLOBIS Wrocław. IK Development is a local Wroclaw real estate office specializing in commercial facilities lease. Knight Frank is part of an international real estate consultancy.
Wroclaw is one of seven cities of Globe Trade Centre’s operations in Poland: Warsaw, Krakow, Poznan, Katowice, Lodz, and Czestochowa. In October 2006 a GTC-dependent partnership acquired 1.3 hectares of land at Karkonoska street, between the city centre and the Kobierzyce Special Economic Zone. This is a plot where GTC plans to develop an office complex of 30,000 square metres.
