New Office Building of the Year, CEE

Any office project opened in CEE between October 2019 and September 2020 excluding modernizations and developments is eligible. The jury will consider the reputation of the project, the occupancy figures, its financial results, the level of local competition, the quality of the design and specification, BREEAM/LEED certification and also its development history.


Advance Business Center I

The location of the building is extremely communicative and provides fast connections through the public subway and transportation. It has extremely high energy efficiency levels, while the architectural project is impressive with green environment, innovative exterior, and effective office spaces, which cover an area of 1 700 sq. m. at each of the 9 floors that can be adapted according to the specific business needs of each company.

Mennica Legacy Tower

Mennica Legacy Tower stands for exceptional architecture, state-of-the-art technology, functionality, and top-quality finishing materials. It is a complex that sets a completely new benchmark for top-class office buildings across Europe. Mennica Legacy Tower is carried out by Golub GetHouse and Mennica Polska SA in Warsaw’s Wola district. The complex of 65,630 m2 consists of the 140-metre-high Tower and the 43-metre-high Western Building. The project was designed by the renowned Chicago-based architecture firm Goettsch Partners, which decided to work with the design consultants Epstein. Mennica Legacy Tower has much more to offer than office space. The aim that guided the investors from the very beginning when designing Mennica Legacy Tower was to integrate the complex into the urban space and accentuate its city-forming character. This is perfectly evidenced by the development of the urban passage in front of and between the buildings of the complex, including the planted trees.


MONOPOLIS is a unique mixed-use project located in the centre of Łódź, the third biggest city in Poland. The project combines modern offices, services and culture with a wide range of food and beverage facilities. Its most important element is the revitalization of the historic plant buildings of Monopol Wódczany (the Vodka Monopoly Plant) from 1902. It is based on renovation of historic buildings and changing them into a luxurious place to work and spend free time. The top-class offices are located in the main building of the former bottling plant as well as in two brand new buildings. In total MONOPOLIS creates a space for nearly 2,500 modern workplaces. The design was prepared by a recognized Polish architectural studio, Grupa 5 Architekci. The concept fits perfectly in the assumptions of the New Centre of Łódź – it is modern and multifunctional. Monopolis creates an exceptional space on the map of the Łódź city, designed for its inhabitants to spend business and free time.


The 9-floor building catches your eye immediately with elegant pure white façade adorned with playful relaxing balconies providing great views of the adjacent park. Greenery can be found throughout the entire building to create pleasant environment for work and relax. There is a sunken island full of vegetation in the middle of the entrance atrium, with a light cloud designed by artist Marek Cihal floating above. Benches from unique recycled concrete, so-called rebetong, will be placed around the complex and on the rooftop terrace. Thanks to the advanced technologies installed, Parkview saves 50 % of both energy and potable water consumption. The building consumes 100 % of the green energy from renewable sources and it supports health & safety as well as well-being of their users providing premium quality of cleaned fresh air, daylight for more than 75 % of workstations and using cooling beams instead of fan coils to name but a few.

The Warsaw HUB

The Warsaw HUB is a multifunctional complex built in the city center of Warsaw, at Rondo Daszyńskiego in Wola district. It consists of three skyscrapers: the 86-metre hotel building and two 130-metre office towers, joined by a common foundation. The Warsaw HUB is Ghelamco’s most innovative project, which goes far beyond the traditional concept of an office complex and combines all functions necessary for the modern business to operate. On 113,000 sq. m it offers state-of-the-art office and coworking space, a conference centre, hotels, a convenience centre with shops and restaurants, and a fitness club. Tenants of the building have for their use a dedicated mobile application, which enables, among others, contactless movement, office management, navigation, and many other functionalities. The Warsaw Hub implemented latest solutions in order to protect tenants – UV lights in elevators, special air conditioning systems and the so-called pandemic mode in the application.

Varso Place (Varso 1 and Varso 2)

Varso Place is a development that revived the most central brownfield area of Warsaw, which was razed during World War II and never fully revitalised. It has been developed by HB Reavis based on best practices, focused on creating healthy, productive and sustainable workspace. Designed by HRA Architects the two mid-rise limestone and glass cladded Varso Place buildings have been fully leased prior to their completion. Located at the doorstep of the Warsaw’s main transport interchange, Varso Place boasts excellent access to trams, buses, metro and commuter rail. The scheme provides office employees and visitors with only a short walking distance to all major destinations in the city centre. Varso Place provides not only modern workplace but also a well-designed and easily accessible public space. It is a unique place dedicated to business, residents and tourists – where people will work, go about their everyday business and unwind in comfort.
