Warsaw, May 20, 2020 – Colliers International, a leading commercial real estate advisory firm, has taken over the management of Biura przy Willi, an office building which belongs to the Browary Warszawskie city-forming project, Echo Investment's flagship investment.
Browary Warszawskie is a harmonious, functional combination of history and modern architecture. This multifunctional quarter of the city is made up of revitalized buildings of the former Haberbusch and Schiele brewery, as well as office buildings, residential buildings, proprietary restaurants, cafés, commercial premises and public city squares. The investment is being developed at Grzybowska Street in Warsaw's Wola district, in the business centre of the capital. A central location enables efficient access from all districts by public and private means of transport.
With 15 floors above the ground, Biura przy Willi is the tallest of the three office buildings that form a part of the complex. Its total area is ca. 16,000 sq m. Tenants have access to underground parking spaces, and an infrastructure is ready for cyclists. The office building provides top technical, ecological and aesthetic standards, ensuring a sense of comfort and safety for the employees. As early as at design stage, the building has been awarded a BREEAM certificate at the Excellent level.
Biura przy Willi is located in the immediate vicinity of the revitalized Schiele Villa, and together with the completed building of the Offices at the Gate, and the first city square, invites one to the heart of the whole investment – the historical cellars of the Leżakownia and the Rynek Warzelni. The Eastern wall of the building is the frontage of the newly built Haberbusch and Schiele Street.
“Biura przy Willi is yet another property under management by Colliers since April, 2020. It gives hope for a good start to the second quarter, despite the challenging circumstances following the global COVID-19 pandemic. It is also Echo Investment's third investment under Colliers’ management, following My Place (stage I) in Warsaw and Face2Face (stage I) in Katowice. We are glad that our cooperation will be extended by another prestigious property,” says Agnieszka Krzekotowska, partner and director od the Property Management at Colliers International.
