Skanska invests EUR 44M, about SEK 420M, in the second phase of an office project in Warsaw, Poland
Skanska invests EUR 44M, about SEK 420M, in Spark 2, the second phase of the office complex Spark in Warsaw, Poland. The office building will have 10 levels of office space, with a total leasable area of around 18,000 square meters, and two levels of underground parking.
Spark 2 will be a natural continuation of Spark 1. This project will benefit from the proven micro-location in the city center of Warsaw and synergies between the projects. The building will be independently certified for its accessible design, specially equipped for people with disabilities. The project is expected to receive LEED Platinum certification.
Spark as a complex will comprise three office buildings with a total leasable area of over 70,000 square meters. In the third phase of the project, a 130-meter skyscraper will be built.
The construction of the second phase is due to start in May 2017 and is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2019.
