International real estate developer HB Reavis announced today that construction has commenced on Varso Place, its flagship development in Warsaw city center. Plans for the 140,000 sqm mixed-use scheme include one of Europe’s tallest towers and two mid-rise buildings. Completion is scheduled for 2020.
We are extremely proud that our flagship development in Warsaw will bring together HB Reavis’ extensive real estate experience and the innovative designs of world-renowned Foster + Partners, working in collaboration with Hermanowicz Rewski Architects. We are confident that Varso Place will become an exceptional destination; a new hub for local and international business and leisure in Poland.
Varso Place demonstrates our commitment to delivering world-class office, retail and entertainment spaces in vibrant, global destinations. Its user-led design and state-of-art facilities will draw in locals living and working in the area, as well as Warsaw’s many visitors. We are immensely proud that the observation deck, which will be open to the public, will allow all to see the beauty, history and prosperity of the Polish capital city.
Pavel Trenka added.
We believe that Varso Tower will have a unique place on Warsaw’s skyline, but most importantly it will establish a new destination capable of revitalising this urban quarter, right in the heart of the city. The building contains high-quality and flexible office space, but it also makes an important contribution to the city with its glazed public courtyard at ground level and the spectacular viewing platforms with restaurants and bars at the top. These public galleries offer panoramic views of the city to everyone. We are really looking forward to moving the project into the next stage of its development and starting construction.
We are proud to contribute to this spectacular project which will revive this part of Warsaw. Our main objective was to create buildings that are open to the public and encourage passers-by to go inside. On sunny days, Varso Place’s guests and office workers will benefit from cafe gardens and recreational spaces located on its roofs
