Skanska invests EUR 63M, about SEK 640M, in a new building in Nowy Rynek, a mixed-use project, located in Poznan, Poland. The 15-storey office building will have a total leasable area of around 28,500 square meters and will offer approximately 230 underground parking places.
The building is expected to receive several certifications: LEED Platinum, WELL Core & Shell, WELL Health & Safety Rating and Building without Barriers, awarded to futureproof, high-quality office spaces with top safety standards reducing the risk of disease transmission and facilitate creating healthy and safe workplaces.
Construction will start in April 2021 and is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2023.
