Qatar Holding buys Miasteczko Orange

Developer Bouygues Immobilier Polska has signed a contract to sell its under-construction Miasteczko Orange office complex in Warsaw to Qatar Holding, an investment company.
The cost of the transaction has not been revealed. The built-to-suit class-A office project, which is located on Al. Jerozolimskie in the capital’s Ochota district, is Qatar Holding’s first investment in Poland. It will house the headquarters of Telekomunikacja Polska (TP).

“We are very happy that Telekomunikacja Polska SA has chosen Bouygues Immobilier Polska to develop their headquarters in Warsaw … This project is the first step in our development in Poland in the office market, where we intend to grow,” Laurent Tirot, managing director of Bouygues Immobilier Polska, said in a statement.

The project, which is due to be completed in the summer of 2013, will comprise five buildings totaling 43,700 sqm of leasable office space, all of which will be taken up by TP.

Just over 1,000 parking spaces will be provided at the site. The complex will include a canteen, space to park bicycles, a garden, first-aid stations and meeting rooms.

Each of the buildings will have raised floors and suspended ceilings, air-conditioning, a security system, and a telecommunication system.

"The complex and its immediate neighborhood is one of Warsaw’s prime non-central locations that benefits from excellent road access and visibility,” Jones Lang LaSalle, the company which is advising Bouygues Immobilier Polska in the transaction, said in a statement.

The complex is going to be BREEAM certified, Jones Lang LaSalle said.

“We choose only prime properties and great covenant tenants. This investment proves that we believe in the Polish economy and its development potential. Poland is coping very well with the overall economic slowdown in Europe, which is confirmed by strong economic indicators,” Navid Chamdia, head of real estate at the Qatar Investment Authority, which established Qatar Holding in 2006, said in a statement.

Royal Wilanów obtains building permit

Real estate investor Capital Park Group has secured a building permit for its Royal Wilanów class-A office building project in Warsaw. Construction on the scheme, which will be located at the intersection of ul. Przyczółkowa and ul. Klimczaka in the capital’s Wilanów district, is scheduled to launch in the second quarter of 2012.

“Royal Wilanów is an alternative to facilities located in Mokotów, where more and more office space is being built. We are offering a high-quality office and service building in a prestigious location,” Dorota Ejsmont, leasing director at Capital Park Group, said in a statement. She added that the company hoped the investment would attract the most demanding clients.

Designed by the JEMS Architekci studio, the five-floor Royal Wilanów development will comprise 35,000 sqm of leasable space, including 28,000 of office space on four floors and 7,000 sqm of retail and service space on the ground floor. A three-level underground parking lot will provide spaces for 921 cars.

Capital Park Group has been active in the Polish property market since 2003, investing in cooperation with the international private equity fund Patron Capital Partners. The group’s investment portfolio comprises 72 assets totaling almost 309,000 sqm of completed and planned space, more than 80 percent of which is located in Warsaw.

Another theme park to be built near Warsaw

A large theme park, a water park and two hotels will be developed at a site in the Mszczonów municipality, located near Warsaw, by Global Parks Poland (GPP) which belongs to Moshe Greidinger who is also the co-owner of multiplex chain Cinema City Poland.

“Park of Poland will be the biggest amusement park in this part of Europe,” Mr Greidinger said at a recent press conference.

GPP will invest zł.2.2 billion in the first stage of the project which is set to be completed by the summer of 2015. An extension to the scheme is planned four years after the park’s opening.

Aside from roller coasters, the water park and hotels, the site will also feature a wastewater treatment plant, as well as shops, cinemas and other facilities.

“We have been working on this project for a number of years. The time is now to launch it. An investment like this one will transform the entire region and many sustainable jobs will be created,” Mr Greidinger said.

He added that as many as four million people are expected to visit the park every year.
Although Mr Greidinger did not reveal ticket prices, he said they would be around 25 to 30 percent cheaper than they are at other theme parks in Europe.

This is not the first project of its kind near Warsaw. Luxembourg-based company Las Palm is also planning to build Adventure World Warsaw, a theme park modeled on Disneyland Paris.

Central station is not bad now but it still needs to be torn down. Are there plans for this in the future?

Agreed. It will do for a bit, but there has to be a modern, all-new replacement at some point.

It is modern and replacement would be probably worse for the passengers

But it's an ugly exterior. The roof sucks. I fail to see how a modern replacement would be worse for passengers. It's an investment that must be made. Warsaw always wants to compare itself to other western capitals but they are being cheap with this project. Train travel is still quite popular in Poland and Europe, and most of Poland passes through Warsaw and when travelling to other nations throughout Europe. And their tourists arrive at this station, let's not forget. More pride needs to be taken with this building. Tear the ugly ****** down!

Toronto, in a country where the car is #1 and train travel is limited, has a much more grande train station. Warsaw is a very impressive city but this one building from the commie era is a sore spot for the city.

I've seen many train stations across Europe - of course there are such beauties like in Berlin or Antwerp, but on the other hand you have such ugly onces like in Brussels for example.

I think that with a new, revitalized Central station Warsaw has nothing to be ashamed of, of course it's not perfect and probably in 5-10 years it will be torn down and new one will be constructed. But it's also ok for me, if it won't happened, at the end it is part of Warsaw's history and the building itself is nicely designed.

The interior looks quite nice but the exterior I am not a fan of.

I understand that many people have a soft spot for this building, but ultimately I think it should be replaced with something spectacular.

Ablon Group starts construction on Karolkowa Business Park




Developer Ablon Group has launched construction on its Karolkowa Business Park office building in Warsaw’s Wola district. The project, which will cost €20 million, is set to be completed in May 2013, the developer wrote in a statement.

The 12-storey class-A office building will offer 15,000 sqm of usable space with 3,200 sqm dedicated to commercial and entertainment purposes. There will also be 260 parking spaces in an underground car park, as well as 2,500 sqm of green space on the roof and in the surrounding area.

When completed, the scheme will have excellent public transport connections since it will be sited near the soon-to-be built Rondo Daszyńskiego metro station, and directly next to bus and tram stops.

“Ablon uses its experience in providing intelligent building solutions, backed by the highest standard of technology and exemplary design. The building will be finished in top quality materials to ensure its efficiency and elegance and flexibility of space arrangement,” Avi Goldenberg, country manager for Ablon, said in the statement.

In addition, Karolkowa Business Park will aim to reduce energy consumption by providing “access to daylight which will prevent the overuse of artificial lighting,” Ablon wrote. Moreover, waste-management systems will be implemented.

CeMat looks quite ordinary. I wish Warsaw would pick a more avant garde project.

Surely design can be desired, but it's the developers that deliver to the market not the municipality.

well, you can push a developer to do better but that isn't always succesful - often they are wedded to a particular architect.
