JLL to lease an office scheme in the centre of Gdańsk
JLL advisory firm has been appointed as the exclusive leasing agent for Heweliusza 18 – an office scheme developed in the centre of Gdańsk by Apollo-Rida.
“The building, because of its location, dovetails with the historical buildings of Gdańsk as well as offering state-of-the-art office space dedicated to both large corporations and smaller tenants. The key for us was to deliver a product that would respond to the needs of such a rapidly growing city. This is our flagship project in Gdańsk, so when choosing an advisor to support its commercialization our choice was the already proven team from JLL”, says Rafał Nowicki, CEO, Apollo-Rida.
Currently the office building, designed by renowned JEMS Architekci architectural studio, is undergoing interior fit-out works. This 10-floor building will provide 10,000 sq m of class A office space along with underground parking and an extensive infrastructure for cyclists. The unquestionable advantage of the investment is its location as it is developed near the main communication hub of Gdańsk with easy access regardless of which direction employees and visitors are travelling from. The investor has also incorporated environmental solutions into the building and has been recognized with BREEAM Excellent certification. Residents will have access to an urban square with a range of amenities on a soon to be renovated Heweliusza Street. The first tenants will move to the office building at the beginning of 2019.
“State-of-the-art, class A office buildings located in the centre of Gdańsk and in close proximity to the Dworzec Główny train station are at a premium. Heweliusza 18 is a unique project in Tri-City. That is why I am glad that Apollo-Rida relied upon the professionalism of JLL when choosing its leasing agent. A combination of the building's unique location with the current situation on the office market in Gdańsk which is attracting significant interest amongst investors, will surely contribute to the success of the project”, says Marcin Faleńczyk, Head of Gdańsk Office, JLL.
Heweliusza 18 office building is part of an office and residential complex developed in the heart of the city, close to the Radunia channel, Hotel Mercure and Madison shopping centre, on an area which has remained undeveloped since the 1970s. Dworzec Główny station is located just 200 meters away and provides prospective tenants and employees with an opportunity to use the Fast Urban Railway, the Pomeranian Metropolitan Railway, and a wide range of buses, trams and intercity trains.
