Polycom, a manufacturer and provider of state-of-the-art communication technology, has leased a 1,000 sq m office at Metropolitan in Warsaw. Global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield was responsible for securing the new office and lease negotiations on behalf of the tenant.
Metropolitan is an iconic building in Warsaw. It is located in a prestigious neighbourhood of the Saxon Park, the National Theatre and the Europejski Hotel, and offers 38,000 sq m of office and retail space. Its distinctive feature is its central courtyard with a fountain. It was constructed in 2003 according to Sir Norman Foster’s design.
“Metropolitan is a showpiece of contemporary Warsaw. Its natural strength lies in its location, but office tenants also appreciate the proximity of the Saxon Park and Krakowskie Przedmieście, which provide favourable conditions for spending leisure time after hours,” said Paweł Strzemecki, Associate, Office Agency, Cushman & Wakefield.
