Interesting article about Warsaw's development boom.

Quote:

Moving up

The Polish capital is now the second city in Europe in terms of office construction activity


Warsaw accounts for approximately 64 percent
of Poland's modern office stock


The office market in Warsaw saw a rebound in 2011 with sector analysts saying growth is set to continue this year. The Polish capital has recently recorded a major rise in lease activity to which developers are already responding by announcing increasingly ambitious development plans.

Capital dominance

According to CBRE’s Poland Office Destinations 2012 report, Warsaw is now the second-most active market in Europe in terms of the development of new office space, ranking above Moscow and lower only than Paris.

“Although Warsaw is far behind Western Europe in terms of total office stock, CBRE underlines that the capital of Poland is ranked as second in Europe in terms of office construction activity, with over 700,000 sqm under construction or planned,” the report said.

Joanna Mroczek, director of research and consultancy at CBRE, noted that the city is currently seeing massive infrastructural work, including the construction of a new bridge and a new subway line, and that its image should also be enhanced due to the Euro 2012 soccer championships.

Warsaw also saw high investment activity in 2011, in stark contrast to the situation in Poland’s regional cities. According to a recent report by Cushman & Wakefield, only one out of the 19 sales agreements for office buildings last year was signed outside the Polish capital.

“The stock of modern office in Warsaw significantly exceeds the total stock of modern offices located in major regional markets,” said Michał Stępień, a senior consultant in the research and consultancy department of Savills.

He added that the capital now accounts for approximately 64 percent of the total modern office stock in Poland. Admittedly, the share of regional cities is growing with the share of Warsaw expected to decrease to approximately 60 percent by the end of 2013.



Development boom

“Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean that the development activity in Warsaw is slowing down. The new supply of offices is estimated at around 225,000 sqm in 2012 and even up to 280,000 sqm in 2013,” Mr Stępień said.

“Warsaw is a clear leader in terms of construction activity with almost 630,000 sqm of modern office space under construction, including a 100,000-sqm tower planned for 2015,” CBRE’s Mroczek said.

She added that the capital has recently recorded some of the best leasing demand and vacancy rate results on the continent. “Given the high number of inquiries registered both from existing tenants and newcomers, 2012 should also be spectacular in terms of demand in Warsaw,” Ms Mroczek said.

Arguably among the most impressive of the new projects will be the office towers that are planned for downtown Warsaw. A number of these have recently been announced by developers and investors including BBI Development, Echo Investment and PHN.

“Our preparatory activities aimed at the introduction to the market of the project on Al. Jana Pawła II are proof of our conviction about the development potential of the capital,” said Waldemar Lesiak, office and hotel space department director at Echo Investment.

He added that his company is also in the process of preparing two other large office investments in Warsaw whose total leasable space will amount to some 80,000 sqm. “Warsaw is the most important office market in Poland and so we are interested in obtaining new schemes in the capital.”

They get more than enough tourists to make up for it.

Warsaw is a different city than Prague.

Looks like the monolith in 2001 SPace Odyssey. Good for Warsaw, was there last summer, very impressed by what I see, a city under construction.

The proposed tower looks ok, but it's a bit too bulky for my taste. IMHO Warsaw needs 1-2 slender landmark building(s) (around 250m in height).

Not bad for me. I prefer simple shapes. Could be less massive.

Nice to see some elegant, simple tower after all this blobs and weird shapes.
I hope the facade will be of high quality.

I personally liked the tenders, but the finished product looks disappointing, IMO. Looks 'plasticky.' I hope it will look ok when the facade is finished.

Only a Polish person could find a fault with such a great building.

I'm just saying that the actual facade looks significantly worse than the tenders. Still a nice building though.

PHN IPO: Waiting for the right moment
The state hopes to float real estate holding group PHN this year, but analysts say it's still unclear precisely what the entity will bring to the market


Poland’s Treasury Ministry is hoping the right moment to launch the initial public offering of the Polish Real Estate Holding Group (PHN) will finally present itself at some point this year.

Citing unnamed sources, daily Parkiet recently reported that the IPO of the state-owned real estate company may take place in June. Contacted by Lokale Immobilia however, Treasury spokesperson Magdalena Kobos said no concrete date for the Warsaw Stock Exchange debut had been set, but that the ministry hopes to float the company “some time during this year.”

The Treasury created PHN in 2011 by grouping together 180 diverse real estate holdings whose assets include more than 1,300 hectares of undeveloped land. Many of these are located in the vicinity of major transportation links throughout Poland. The company also owns numerous buildings, including the Intraco tower, one of Warsaw’s oldest skyscrapers.

Valued by analysts at zł.2.8 billion, the state could potentially add more properties to PHN’s portfolio, therefore making it more valuable ahead of its IPO. Grupa PHN CEO Wojciech Papierak has said the company could potentially fetch up to zł.3 billion.

However Ms Kobos said the “package of shares [that will be offered] and the money we will get from the IPO will depend on the market situation.”

Reuters recently reported unnamed sources as saying the Treasury may sell part of the company publicly on the stock exchange and part to a real estate fund, to ensure it meets its zł.10 billion privatization target for this year. In response, the Treasury’s Kobos told Lokale Immobilia that “all investors can take part in the process of the IPO, there is no limitation.”

Uncertain market

Analysts are nevertheless far from certain that the equity market will be stable enough to support the IPO this year. “We don’t know yet if market conditions will even allow PHN to go public,” said Andrzej Kasperek, an analyst at UniCredit.

“We also don’t know what the equity story is behind the company. There are many real estate companies on the bourse, so we have to ask: What is the company bringing that is new? At present it is unclear where the value is and how management will release this value for shareholders,” he added.

Grupa PHN's CEO, Mr Papierak, has in the past mooted the idea of turning PHN into an investment firm, but since PHN owns so much land, analysts say it would need to develop this to realize the firm’s full potential.

Diverse holdings

Certainly, PHN has shown a willingness to engage in development projects, either on its own or with sector partners, and already has a number of diverse schemes underway or in the planning stage.

In partnership with Real Estate Investment Trust SEGRO, PHN will develop the SEGRO Industrial Park Wrocław logistics project on a plot it owns in Lower Silesia. The development will sit on 10 hectares of land and comprise 40,000 sqm of usable space when it is delivered in the first quarter of 2013.

Among other projects, PHN is also planning to build a 150-meter skyscraper on ul. Świętokrzyska in Warsaw. Called PHN Tower, the scheme will offer a total area of 60,000 sqm and function either as an office or as a combined office-hotel project.

While PHN may not be a streamlined, sector-specific developer in the conventional sense, the sheer range of well-located assets it owns and the investment opportunities these afford means the company is well-placed to generate income. Only time will tell though if the equity market will be in the mood to welcome PHN’s potentially mammoth IPO later this year.
