Warsaw, 2nd December 2011 – Jones Lang LaSalle is pleased to announce that Bouygues Immobilier Polska has committed to the sale of an A-class office complex in Warsaw, currently developed by Bouygues Immobilier Polska for the purpose of headquarters of Polish Telecom (Telekomunikacja Polska SA).

The project will be the future headquarters of Polish Telecom – Telekomunikacja Polska SA. whose main shareholder is France Telecom. The complex will comprise five office buildings totalling 43,700 sq m of institutional quality lettable office area and more than 1000 parking spaces. The project will also include a number of amenities such as canteen, cafeteria, parking area for bicycles, innovation garden, first aid stations or local coffee rooms. The tailor-made headquarters of Polish Telecom will conform to the most rigorous standards of intelligent facilities. Each of the buildings in the complex will be equipped with raised floors and suspended ceilings, air-conditioning, security and telecommunication system, as well as modern Building Management Systems. The project is scheduled for completion by summer 2013 and it is going to be BREEAM certified.

The property occupies a prominent location on Aleje Jerozolimskie, in a left-bank Ochota district of Warsaw (South – West office submarket). The complex and its immediate neighbourhood is one of Warsaw’s prime non-central locations that benefits from excellent road access and visibility. It will also be exceptional in terms of public transportation, as the fast train to the airport has a stop next to the property. Additionally, several bus lines provide access to Central Railway Station and Coach Station (“Dworzec Zachodni”).
