The Park Rozwoju office complex, which is being developed by Echo Investment in Warsaw, has won a ‘BREEAM Design Stage Assessment’ category in the CEE Green Building Awards 2013 competition.
The aim of the CEE Green Building Awards competition, which is organized by EuropaProperty, is to award the best projects in Central and Eastern Europe that are carried out incorporating top ecological standards.
The participants of the competition are projects which already hold BREEAM or LEED certificates as well as those which are in the process of getting one. The submitted projects are assessed by an independent jury which consists of representatives of the commercial property industry in the CEE region.
At its design stage the Park Rozwoju office complex, which is being developed on Konstruktorska Street in Warsaw, has received a BREEAM certificate with a very good grade and one of the highest scores in Poland – 67.83 pct. The project is being carried out in two stages – the first one is to finish in Q1 2014. The completion of the second stage of the project, which started in November this year, is planned for Q2 2015. In January earlier this year Schneider Electric Polska leased 7,000 sqm in Park Rozwoju. Approximately 700 people will be working in the new office of Schneider Electric Polska. Park Rozwoju consists of two buildings with green courtyards and a restaurant which is situated in the connecting area. The total office space in the complex amounts to 32,000 sqm. The buildings will have a two-storey underground car park as well as a ground-level one, which will offer a total of 740 parking spaces. The complex will include leisure and recreation areas: a courtyard with a water cascade and a canteen, internal enclosures with comfortable benches, green terraces on the roofs and an outdoor gym. Cyclists will have a garage with bike racks at their disposal as well as a changing room including showers. The new office project of Echo Investment is being built in the southern part of Mokotów, at Konstruktorska Street 10. The location provides quick and easy access to the Fryderyk Chopin airport and the city centre. The facility is surrounded by a well developed network of public transport: there are two tram terminals nearby and a bus terminal. The southern ring road of Warsaw and the Marynarska interchange provide convenient access by car. The architectural design of Park Rozwoju was created in the JEMS Architekci architectural studio. www.parkrozwoju.com.pl
