PORR builds visionary office complex in Warsaw


Warsaw/Vienna, 28 February 2019 - The construction of Yareal’s newest office investment, the LIXA project, has begun. PORR was chosen as the general contractor for the investment. The first stage of construction will erect an exemplary office building with an area of 22.000 m², as well as a smaller, more intimate 6.000 m² office building. Yareal’s flagship investment will offer tenants modern, class A office space and an indoor green garden unique among office buildings.

“LIXA is the most prestigious office investment in Yareal’s history. That’s why we’re cooperating with PORR, one of the most highly experienced general contractors in the construction industry. We place a huge emphasis on our partner’s experience because our LIXA complex offers excellent quality office spaces for the most demanding of tenants,”says Eric Dapoigny, President of Yareal Polska. “The combination of original architectural design and solid workmanship will provide future tenants with the possibility of individual, non-standard space arrangements and access to a green garden, which isn’t available in high-rise buildings in the area.”

“We’re building the LIXA complex with the conviction that, thanks to this investment, we’ll have the opportunity to construct large and architecturally unique structures near Daszyński roundabout. PORR has built such buildings as the University of Warsaw Library, the Warsaw Stock Exchange headquarters, and the Sea Towers in Gdynia. We want the LIXA complex to not only be an excellent representation of Yareal, but of our company as well”, says Dariusz Wietrzyński, responsible for residential, office and industrial construction at PORR.

LIXA construction has begun

Construction of the LIXA complex, which will be part of a new business hub that is being developed at Warsaw’s Daszyński roundabout, was preceded by the demolition of the former Kredyt Bank office building. So far, a diaphragm wall has been put up and a foundation slab is being constructed beneath the first two buildings of the complex, at the intersection of Kasprzaka and Karolkowa streets. BNP Paribas bank will locate its main headquarters at the larger of these two buildings.

65.000 m² across three stages

The LIXA complex will be completed in stages: two buildings with a total of 28.000 m² of class A office space will be built along Karolkowa street during the first stage. The LIXA complex will offer a total of 65.000 m² of office space. Offices at the LIXA complex will provide comfortable working conditions for the largest international corporations. Employees working at offices in LIXA will have convenient access to their workplace thanks to a nearby metro station, trams and buses. The complex itself will be multifunctional, offering access to restaurants, cafes, and other services essential to any business hub. The LIXA complex will be built around a university campus-style courtyard and garden. In addition to lush greenery, the central part of the garden will include a pavilion connected to a lobby, which will offer conference and restaurant space for organizing various meetings and events.

The LIXA complex will be certified by the international BREEAM system, which assesses the implementation of solutions related to sustainable construction. Yareal’s flagship office investment will receive an “Excellent” rating.
