On Monday 21st April 2008 the ceremonial opening of the NOTHUS office building took place. During the ceremony GTC announced that it would commence development of the next office block in Okęcie Business Park – the CORIUS building.
NOTHUS is the first building to be constructed in Okęcie Business Park – the first office park in Poland situated in close proximity to the International Airport.
The ribbon in the building was cut jointly by Mr. Mariusz Kozłowski – a Member of GTC’s Board, Director of Investor Relations and Professor Stefan Kuryłowicz (APA Kuryłowicz & Associates). During the meeting the building was symbolically released for use to its future tenants, including among others: Moeller Electric, Mitsubishi, Kingfisher, Polbank and Frogut Plastics.
“Today’s ceremony constitutes the fulfillment of our hopes and expectations connected with this exceptional investment. The idea of constructing a modern business park at the International Airport was both innovative and groundbreaking; it has been proved today that a business park in this unique form is very much needed in this particular district of Warsaw. We welcome our tenants in the first building, and we wish them to develop dynamically in the Polish market” says Mariusz Kozłowski, a Member of the Board and Director of Investor Relations in GTC S.A.
NOTHUS’s twin building ZEPHIRUS, which will be ready for use in August, has already been placed alongside. This seven-storey office building, offering as much as 9,100 sq m, will house such tenants as NovoNordisk (2,100 sq m) and Lot Ground Services (1,800 sq m).
CORIUS will be the third building in Okęcie Business Park. According to GTC, it should come into use at the end of 2009. As far as its shape, size and technical parameters are concerned it will be almost identical to the two buildings developed earlier. Tenants will have 9,100 sq m in seven storeys at their disposal.
Okęcie Business Park is an investment under construction at Ul. Stycznia 17, close to the buildings of both Polish Airlines LOT and Polish Airports. Eventually it will consist of six buildings with a total area of around 54,000 sq m
