The University Business Park building has seven floors, with a typical floor area of 2,700 sq m.
University Business Park is suited to the needs of large and small tenants. The complex was designed to provide tenants the greatest flexibility in arrangement of the interiors and efficient use of the area as individual offices or as open space.
University Business Park holds a certificate of the prestigious EU GreenBuilding programme. The complex is equipped with suspended ceilings, tilt windows with external roller blinds, state-of-the-art HVAC and telecommunications systems, backup power source and full access control. This makes it possible to arrange the office space freely for back-office operations or for research or laboratory use by companies from the BPO sector, which make up a significant percentage of potential investors in the Łódź area.
