Miasteczko Orange in Warsaw will remain the headquarters of Orange Polska for the next 14 years. The operator has signed a lease renewal agreement.
50,000 m2 of usable floor space
Orange Polska has announced that it has signed a new lease agreement for Miasteczko Orange in Warsaw, where the operator’s head office is located. The agreement will be valid for 14 years. Its value was not revealed publicly.
“For 6 years the town has been the showcase of Orange, the workplace of the most important structures – it is the heart of our company. We have created a friendly working environment for over 3.7 thousand people. We intend to further develop and modernize them. Employees from other locations in Warsaw will soon arrive here,” said Jacek Kowalski, Member of the Management Board of Orange Polska, responsible for human resources.
Completed in 2013. The town is an A+ class office building designed by Stanisław Fiszer. It takes into account the requirements of energy, lighting, water and greenfield development. The complex consists of five six-storey buildings with a total of 44,800,000 m2 of usable floor space. The underground parking lot contains 1050 cars and 120 bicycles. The employees have at their disposal a canteen, a grocery store, a kiosk, a café, a car wash and a wooded garden.
CBRE negotiator of the contract
The town was awarded a BREEAM certificate with the “Excellence” rating, which confirmed its compliance with strict environmental standards and the highest European standards in the construction industry. The investment was carried out by Bouygues Immobilier Polska. Then the office building was sold to Qatar Holding, a company owned by Qatar Investment Authority, a Qatar investment fund.
In the process of renegotiation of the agreement, Orange Polska was represented by CBRE and Andrzej Szmigiel from CEE Attorneys. “The lease extension was preceded by detailed analyses of space availability and tenant needs. In the case of Orange, it is also important that the head office is already a part of the brand’s DNA, inscribed in its communication and image. We are sure that this is the best choice” – says Rafał Wdowczyk, Business Development Director from CBRE.
