The tenant was represented in the transaction by the advisory company Colliers. Its experts also support the client in the process of arranging and preparing the office in the new location.
Podium Park A is the first of three buildings of the Podium Park office complex, located at 43a Jana Pawła II Avenue in Kraków. It is owned and managed by Globalworth, a leading office investor in Central and Eastern Europe.  

The 11-storey building, to which HEINEKEN Global Shared Services will move into already in Q2 2022, offers almost 18,700 sq m of modern office space and 1,195 sq m of retail space. The building provides 270 parking spaces, as well as 13 spaces with the possibility of charging electric cars.

“We are delighted to welcome HEINEKEN to Podium Park - a company that, like Globalworth, does not compromise on quality. From the very beginning, our office building has attracted brands that focus on innovation, ecology and the highest quality space. Tenants appreciate it very much, which is confirmed by commercial success of the entire investment - building A is 100% - and the newest building B, completed only six months ago, has already been leased in over 80%,” says Julie Archambault, Senior Leasing Manager at Globalworth Poland.

“HEINEKEN always puts safety first. Therefore, this factor was one of the most important aspects we took into account when choosing our new headquarters, next to the convenience, accessibility and ecological solutions used in the building. In addition to BREEAM, we also use Fitwel certification, as the well-being of our employees is crucial to us. We are glad that our new office will be adapted to the hybrid model and will support inclusiveness and comfort at work,“ says Akos Magyari, director of HEINEKEN Kraków.

“Currently, many companies are working on a return to offices strategy and thus look at the functionality of the current office space in terms of implementing hybrid work. A large supply of modern office space in Kraków creates very interesting opportunities for tenants who are open to relocation and rearrangement of space according to the new needs of their organization. HEINEKEN is one of the companies that took advantage of this opportunity and will relocate in a few months. Now our experts from the Workplace Innovation, Design&Build and Building Consultancy departments, together with HEINEKEN, are working on arrangement and preparing an office at Podium Park that will support the development of our client's business in Kraków for the next few years”, says Anna Galicka-Bieda, regional director in Kraków at Colliers.
