Double platinum for Matrix Office Park

  • Two of GTC’s A-class buildings, Matrix A and Matrix B, have received LEED Platinum certification.
  • As part of the Matrix Office Park, Building A was commissioned in Q1 2019. Building B is currently under construction and expected to be completed in the coming months.
  • The complex is situated in a prestigious location within the Zagreb business district at the intersection of Radnička Street and Slavonska Avenue, two of the most important city roads.

GTC, a leading real estate investor and developer focusing on the CEE region, expands its portfolio of green projects. The Matrix A and Matrix B office buildings have both been granted LEED Platinum certifications. Thus, 80% of all GTC’s office properties now proudly bear an eco-friendly label. 

Matrix Office Park is a modern business center located in Zagreb, which will provide a total of approximately 75,500 sq m of leasable space. The first building – Matrix A – was completed in the first quarter of 2019 and offers 10,800 sq m of office space, while the second building to be completed in Q4 2020 will offer an additional10,700 sq m of modern office space. So far, the tenant portfolio of the property includes, among others, Spaces (Regus), L’Oreal and VeniTure.

We have noted that people desire to spend time, either leisure or work, in quality surroundings and thus we have created our office park with concern for the environment which is at the heart of our corporate strategy. We have endeavored to implement our sustainability-focused mindset to provide exceptional office spaces ensuring the ultimate care for our tenants and their well-being. commented Yovav Carmi, President of the Management Board of GTC.   

LEED certification encompasses all elements of the construction – from the selection of organic and safe materials, through energy efficiency and environmental protection, to the insistence on exceptional air purity, natural lighting and overall functionality, adaptability and comfort while using the building.

Galeria Północna to be the home of the largest Sinsay store in Poland

Galeria Północna has just signed an agreement with LPP to relocate its Sinsay store. The deal will result in the largest brand store in Poland with over 2,600 m2. A grand opening of the two-storied showroom featuring the greatest selection of fashionable Sinsay clothing and accessories is scheduled for this year.

A wide choice of products, attractive pricing and spacious area. That’s a new Sinsay showroom in a nutshell, which is to open with a stunning total of 2,665 m2 of area on two floors of Galeria Północna in mid-December.

From the very start, we have aimed to act outside of the box. We are the first shopping center with a roof garden and a brine graduation tower. We were also the only ones to feature a butterfly conservatory and an insect exhibition. A new Sinsay store is yet another project of this scope. None of the stores to date has had such a grand area or offer. We are delighted to see an important player on the market – the LPP chain – choose Galeria Północna as a seat for the largest Sinsay store in Poland. We are confident it will translate into increased footfall for the store and the entire galleria as well as the level of customer satisfaction”, said Roman Bugajczyk, Galeria Północna’s Managing Director.

Sinsay’s customers in Galeria Północna will undoubtfully be surprised to see the spaciousness of the store as well as its modern design. The interior of the store with its dominant white color of the walls, floors, and furniture will provide the perfect background for the colorful and varied fashion offer of the brand. Metal furniture and large-screens correspond with the bold, expressive Sinsay collection which is designed to be full of ideas to play with fashion this season.

We are certain that those into experimenting with style and clothing will be able to find a great number of fascinating offerings, ranging from T-shirts and dresses through trousers, blouses and shoes, bags and accessories in our store. There is no doubt that our selling point is great prices combined with a large selection of products presented in a spacious, modern area providing our customers with a sense of comfort, said Magdalena Banacka, Sinsay Visual Communications Director.

Despite the pandemic and a resulting range of restrictions, Galeria Północna’s offering is constantly growing. Recently, a brand new Food Hall has been opened in the shopping center. It is a combination of four, newly established restaurants on the Warsaw market, including Zdrowia Smak, La Terra Cafe, La Terra Pizzeria, and Burger Booth. Together, they create a unique place on the culinary map of Warsaw, which draws in clients not only with a tempting menu but also with its atmosphere and interestingly designed interior. The galleria is also full of new attractions. At the time when all shopping centers were closed, Galeria Północna received a new mural on the roof as well as two new playgrounds. On the other hand, a new arcade place has been opened and the outside playground has been expanded with a zip line.
