Centrum Południe is Skanska largest investment in Wroclaw with a target area of 85,000 sqm throughout five buildings. Project is the first investment in the capital of Lower Silesia utilizing green concrete. Along with the first phase, approx. 1380 sqm of anti-smog pavement will be laid, helping neutralize pollution emitted by cars. Centrum Południe is also the first office building in Wroclaw to receive the prestigious WELL certificate. Solutions used in the office building will reduce water consumption by more than a half, and energy consumption – by a third. Having designed the buildings in accordance with the highest standards and based on the guidelines of environmental certificates, Centrum Południe provides tested, always clean air, as well as thermal and acoustic comfort confirmed by measurements. Before launching phase one, Skanska had conducted public consultations which were taken into account when the building’s surroundings were designed.

Thanks to the extensive accompanying infrastructure, which especially consists of an interchange centre ensuring direct communication of the property with the PKP/PKS station and space for the future expansion of the campus, the Landlord ensures unrestricted expansion of Tenants within one location and an exceptionally large number of parking spaces.

Face2Face Business Campus I

The developer in cooperation with architects from Grupa 5 Architekci paid special attention to an accountable approach to work ergonomics, ecological technological solutions, reasonable water and energy management, waste management monitoring. Electric car charging stations and parking spaces for bicycles will be founded in the complex. Employees who get to work by bicycle can use cabinets and showers. Common spaces – a large green patio, relaxation areas will be planted with favorable greenery, allowing birds and insects to settle there. At the design stage, the building obtained the EXCELLENT BREEAM certificate.

We also took care of the surroundings and we have rich infrastructure for cyclists, for whom there are more places than for cars and a small basketball court. Moreover, 1,900 sqm of anti-smog pavement made of green concrete will be built in the second stage of the investment. It reduces compounds that are harmful to humans from car exhaust fumes. Advanced air purifying filters have been installed inside the buildings. The author of the architectural design is NS Moon Studio.

The heart of this complex is a spacious green courtyard with green squares, numerous places ideal for relaxing and a canteen with a garden. The LIXA project has an university campus-style design. Moreover, unlike other office investments in the area, LIXA offers not only access to green courtyards, but also a human scale and diverse architecture. The complex will be constructed according to the rigorous requirements of the international BREEAM system for sustainable building. The investment’s architectural plan was drafted by the prestigious HRA architectural studio and includes numerous eco-friendly solutions to ensure an “Excellent” BREEAM rating.

The glazed façade with champagne colored cladding elements and slightly rotated vertical façade elements will give the building depth, additional variability, light and shade. Surrounded by green common spaces, the Malthouse Offices perfectly fit into the design philosophy of the creators of the investment, i.e. creating a place where people can work, spend time together and meet the needs of everyday life.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Villa Offices (part of Warsaw Brewery)

The Villa Offices - the highest commercial building in Warsaw Brewery - has been completed. WeWork will soon open its headquarters there. The office building is another finished part of Echo Investment's city-forming project, that will combine residential, office,retail and entertainment purposes. The building is distinguished by its fully glazed facade, which reflects the surrounding buildings like in a mirror. What is more, the whole area is covered with a large-scale, arranging "grating" made of dark aluminium facade profiles. The refraction of the solid, the entrance arcades and the windows will be highlighted by a beer malt-coloured cladding. This type of copper alloy on facades is very rarely used in Poland. The Villa Offices, together with the finished building of Gatehouse Offices and the first city square open and invite to the heart of the whole project - the historic Cellars of the former Storage Cellar and the Brewery Market.
