Something about the Chmielna 25 project, New building planned by Skanska in the city centre and new 5 star Marriott at the Chopin Airport.

LHI to launch Chmielna 25 project in Warsaw
The development is part of the company's strategy
of focusing on revitalization schemes in the city's historic center.




Real estate company LHI will soon launch construction on its Chmielna 25 office and retail project in downtown Warsaw. The firm has already secured a building permit for the development and is now in the process of selecting its general contractor. Construction is expected to take approximately 18 months and finish in the second quarter of 2013.

The Chmielna 25 scheme, which will be located on a 1,242-sqm plot on Warsaw’s ul. Chmielna high street and is meant to contribute to the revitalization of the historic neighborhood, will offer approximately 5,700 sqm of GLA. This will include more than 3,800 sqm and almost 1,800 sqm of office and retail-service space, respectively.

The Chmielna 25 investment has been designed by the Bulanda, Mucha - Architekci studio and will feature two retail-service and six office floors, as well as an underground parking area for 25 cars. The investor is applying for the LEED Gold energy and environmental performance certificate for the development.

Central interest

LHI, which has until recently been mostly known for its property leasing activity, is now increasingly turning its attention to real estate project financing with Chmielna 25 being the company’s second investment in central Warsaw in recent years, after the Nowy Dom Jabłkowskich project, which officially opened for business last week.

More schemes of this kind are on LHI’s mind. “We are only interested in revitalization projects located in downtown historic Warsaw, in the best locations. The maximum size of those projects is 10,000 sqm of GLA,” said Robert Mandżunowski, CEO and member of the company’s management board.

During the Nowy Dom Jabłkowskich project LHI cooperated with the heirs of the plot located at the intersection of Warsaw’s ul. Chmielna and ul. Bracka on which the scheme is sited. Mr Mandżunowski added that LHI is interested in joint investments with the heirs of other well-located properties in the Polish capital.

“We are not building a land bank,” Mr Mandżunowski said, stressing that LHI only buys real estate which has a building permit for specific projects that have earlier been agreed upon with his company. “We are currently in talks concerning further investments,” Mr Mandżunowski admitted.

According to Mr Mandżunowski, there is now considerable demand in Warsaw for office space in small prestigious facilities located in the city’s historic neighborhoods. “The small number of such projects in Warsaw results from the fact that there are few available plots which could lend themselves to such investments,” he said.

Work on new airport hotel set to begin.

Austrian construction firm Alpine has signed a zł.141 million contract to build a new five-star hotel at Warsaw’s Chopin Airport. Work on the development is due to begin on September 28 with the project expected to be completed within 20 months. The building is scheduled to open in mid-2013.

The development, which will comprise 16,700 sqm of usable space, will be built on the existing airport parking space in the immediate vicinity of the airport’s Terminal 2. It will provide 225 hotel rooms, a restaurant, bar, swimming pool and fitness center, five conference rooms and a multi-storey car park.

The building, which was designed by JEMS Architekci, will be a dark-graphite three-storey structure and when viewed from a bird’s-eye perspective will resemble the shape of a small piano.

The facility will be a Renaissance Hotel, a brand owned by Marriott International.

Skanska's Atrium 1 project launch scheduled for Q4

- The company wants the Warsaw development
to be the first "deep green" investment in Poland

Skanska Property Poland will launch construction on its Atrium 1 office project in Warsaw by the end of this year. Located on the capital’s Al. Jana Pawła II, near Rondo ONZ, the scheme will be the latest addition to a complex of commercial buildings that the company has been developing along the avenue since the 1990s.

The 18,000 sqm Atrium 1 development is now waiting for a building permit; construction is expected to start in December and finish two years later. Skanska, which was a pioneer in sustainable development in the Polish market, wants the project to set new building standards in the country as far as energy and environmental performance is concerned.

“This will be the most ecological office building in Poland,” said Katarzyna Zawodna, a regional director at Skanska Property Poland. She added that Atrium 1 will feature “deep green” solutions, meaning the project will be even more energy efficient than other ecological performance certified properties.

Among the solutions employed in the investment will be the use of solar and geothermal energy, as well as zero consumption of potable water for non-drinking purposes. There are already buildings in the world which produce more energy than they consume, and this is the direction in which Skanska Property Poland wants to go, Ms Zawodna said.

The company has not secured any tenants for the Atrium 1 project yet but it believes that commercialization should not be a problem. Construction has recently launched in the neighborhood on a station of the capital’s second subway line, which should further boost its attractiveness as a business location.

According to Ms Zawodna, Warsaw’s Wola district will be one of the hottest office spots in the Polish capital in the near future and is an area in which her own company will also remain active. Apart from the Green Corner investment on ul. Chłodna, which is currently under construction, and the soon-to-be-started Atrium 1 development, Skanska is planning the Atrium 2 scheme, which will be built on land adjacent to Atrium 1 and is expected to be launched in the first half of 2013. And more is yet to come. “We would like to consider an opportunity to build a skyscraper near Rondo ONZ in Warsaw but this is now in the dreaming rather than planning phase,” Ms Zawodna said.

Developer and church join forces in Warsaw skyscraper project


BBI Development NFI and the Archdiocese of Warsaw want to build
a 180-meter office tower in the capital's central district

Warsaw Stock Exchange-listed developer BBI Development NFI and the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Warsaw are teaming up to build a new high-rise office project which will be located at the intersection of ul. Emilii Plater and ul. Nowogrodzka in Warsaw’s central district.

BBI Development NFI announced the signing of a preliminary investment agreement concerning the scheme in early August. Last week the company revealed the name of its partner, as well as more details pertaining to the planned development.

The skyscraper that the two entities plan to jointly develop, commercialize and sell, will be erected on a plot which belongs to St. Barbara’s parish in Warsaw. A BBI Development NFI subsidiary will be responsible for the preparation and supervision of the developer project.

A number of permits still need to be obtained from the Vatican and Warsaw City Hall before the planned office tower project can be launched. A special purpose vehicle set up by the investors will apply for an environmental impact and a planning decision for the scheme by the end of this year.

The new skyscraper is expected to be approximately 180 meters tall and comprise some 50,000 sqm of usable space. BBI Development NFI should be able to present the design of the building in the spring of 2012.

Classic architecture

“The tower will feature top-quality architecture,” said Michał Skotnicki, management board president at BBI Development NFI. He added that the form of the building would be simple, classic and devoid of curved lines, so that office space in the structure can be easily arranged.

According to Mr Skotnicki, the future skyscraper will fit perfectly into the architectural context of the location at which it is planned to be built. The Marriott hotel and Oxford Tower high-rises stand nearby and several other tall buildings are likely to be erected in the neighborhood in the near future.

In Mr Skotnicki’s opinion, the location in question is one of the most attractive in Warsaw as far as the development of a new large-scale office project is concerned. BBI Development is optimistic about the prospects for the scheme’s commercialization, he said.

For the time being, the developer does not want to talk about the value of the planned project, nor the scale of the potential return that the investment could yield. BBI Development NFI is expected to ultimately have a 44.99 percent share of profits from the scheme, Mr Skotnicki revealed.

@ wholagun, unfortunately for now it's on hold, but it doesn't mean that it won't get built. We need to wait a year or two and we will see.

Why is it that the most great projects are always put on hold.

Yeah, that Zaha project, if ever erected, would monopolize and ruin the entire Warsaw skyline.

Hopefully it does not come to fruition

it's because debt crisis around the world has an effect on Poland too, but I think a lot is till being built, many will have to stay on hold until the dust settles after all these problems are somehow settled.

Understandable for private investments but municipal investments ? Ok the city has less money but, let's get real saski plac and defilad are major city squares where lots of tourists visit. We had the competition for the modern art museum how long ago????? And still no construction. the fact saski plac - a very important national area remains barren after 21 years is upsetting, same goes for defiald - at least there they got rid of the market.

Museum of Modern Art is planned over the subway tunnel, so this construction will start in 2014 (subway line should be ready before the end of 2013).

Other investments on Defilad Square will be, in general, private. But there is a problem with ownership of some sites, so municipal authorities cannot just sell them.

And there we have ...first insider shots of planned UBS Tower vis-ŕ-vis Rondo 1.
We don't know any details about the project yet, but we know that it will
replace the smaller Ilmet Tower at the UN Roundabout (Rondo ONZ).

In the second render on the right there is another tower, wich is probably
also planned by the investor, but we don't know anything about it either.


Ilmet Tower (103m) - will be unfortunately
demolished to make space for new taller building.

Port Praski zoned for skyscrapers

The new development would transform the skyline of
Warsaw's east bank


The zoning plan for the long-neglected Port Praski (Praga Port) river port neighborhood of Warsaw’s Praga Północ district, has been completed by Warsaw City Hall, and is expected to be voted on in the near future. If approved, the redevelopment of the area, which will be situated next to the planned Stadion subway station, will include four skyscrapers with heights of 100m, 120m, 140m and 160m respectively, a move which is set to completely transform the Praga skyline.

In addition, residential units will be built on the waterfront. A park and recreational area will be built in the southern part of the 38-hectare plot.

In terms of the potential profitability of the project, Mikolaj Martynuska, a director at CB Richard Ellis Polska, believes it will be a success.

“I am convinced this project may be a commercial success if it is planned and targeted properly. Assuming that the project will be structured in the right manner, I have no doubt it will be profitable for the developer. The only question is the time line of the potential return,” he said.

But with regard to the skyscrapers, which form a central part of the proposed development, Mr Martynuska believes this will be a more long-term project in terms of seeing return. “In this sense, proper phasing of the whole development is one of the key issues which will finally build value of the entire project,” he said.

The development plan can currently be viewed up to November 8, 2011, on the 19th floor of the Palace of Culture and Science from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday.

Port Praski was built during the interwar period to serve as a reloading dock and winter port. The facility comprised three port basins and several buildings and was closed in 1963 when its functions were taken over by another of the capital’s ports – Port Żerań.

Most of the land covered by the newly drafted zoning plan is owned by Elektrim’s subsidiary Port Praski.

New 6-storey office building is set to be build on the side of the polish party PiS (Law and Justice) headquarters near Zawiszy Square and Millennium Plaza.
The building has been bought by a real estate company Metropol NH in 2007. The company hoped to build a 200m skyscraper on the site of the building
- these intentions were cancelled last year by a new master plan for this region.
New Plan allows only a maximum height of 27 meters in this area so, the company had to adjust to it.
This is a very preliminary stage of preparation for the investment - says Dariusz Abramczyk from Metropol NH.
It will take several more years before the construction can be started -
we still have a long way connected with the building permit - he says.


The building has been desgined by Polish-Belgian studio "Projekt".
