The Warsaw HUB — the best high-rise building in Europe
The Warsaw HUB office complex received another award this year, this time as part of the prestigious International Property Awards competition in “Best Commercial High-rise Development Europe” category. According to an international jury, the Warsaw investment of Ghelamco Poland is the best commercial high-rise building in Europe.
On 3 December 2018, during the International Property Awards gala in London, The Warsaw HUB was proclaimed as the best high-rise building in Europe. Earlier, in October, Ghelamco’s flagship investment in Warsaw’s Wola district received two European Property Awards: the Award Winner and the Five Star Award in “Best Commercial High-rise Development Poland” category.
“A few weeks ago we were celebrating the award for The Warsaw HUB as the best commercial skyscraper in Poland, now it’s time to extend this honourable title to the whole continent. The new award is proof that our projects are at the highest, world-class level and enjoy international recognition,” says Jarosław Zagórski, Commercial and Business Development Director at Ghelamco Poland.
For more than 25 years, International Property Awards has been recognising the most innovative and original commercial and residential buildings in the world. The jury appreciated the innovative solutions applied in the design of The Warsaw HUB, its architecture, safety, location and implementation in accordance with the principles of green building. Among the several dozen real estate experts being the judges in the competition are architects and designers of international renown: Rhian Barker, Geoff Cresswell, Sean Hatcher, Brian Lawrence, Christian Morris and Penny Patterson. The Earl of Liverpool is the chairman of the jury.
The Warsaw HUB, Ghelamco Poland’s flagship project, is being built in Warsaw’s Wola district, right next to Rondo Daszyńskiego. It will consist of three towers (from 86 to 130 m) joined by a five-storey foundation with commercial area. The 113,000 sq m will host state-of-the-art office space, two hotels, a conference centre, a convenience centre, co-working space, a fitness club, and a center for corporate-startup collaboration The Heart Warsaw.
Employees of the complex will be able to access the building using a smartphone application or enter the parking lot via a license plate recognition system, whereas electric car owners will have access to charging stations. The building will also provide a parking lot with 420 spaces for cyclists including full infrastructure.
