International players set their sights on Marynarska Business Park
Syrena Real Estate has signed lease agreements in the Marynarska Business Park complex for more than 6,000 m² of office space. The company, which manages a complex of four buildings in Warsaw’s Służewiec district, has extended agreements with its existing tenants – Ford Polska, Accord Healthcare Polska – and signed two new agreements: with NewCold and a confidential tenant who will occupy nearly 4,000 m² in one of the buildings.
Marynarska Business Park continues to be the headquarters of the Polish branch of Ford, which leases just over 1,000 m² in the complex. Ford designs, manufactures, sells and services a range of connected commercial vehicles, SUV’s and passenger cars. The company strengthens its leadership position in vehicle electrification, invests in mobility development, autonomous driving systems and services for connected vehicles, and provides financial services through Ford Motor Credit Company. It employs around 176,000 people in plants all around the world.
The lease agreement for office space – 860 m² – was also extended with Accord Healthcare Polska, which is a global manufacturer and distributor of pharmaceutical products. It operates in 85 countries around the world helping to improve patient access to primary healthcare. Accord’s portfolio covers key areas such as oncology, cardiology, neurology, psychiatry, diabetes, pain management and gastroenterology.
NewCold has chosen the Marynarska Business Park complex to occupy 450 m² of office space. NewCold is a service provider in cold chain logistics, investing in large highly automated state-of-the-art freezers. The company provides advanced logistics services worldwide aspiring to be a key link in the supply chain for major food chains.
The second new tenant, with whom Syrena Real Estate has signed an agreement to lease nearly 4,000 m² of office space for the time-being, remains confidential.
– For us, the extension of cooperation with our existing tenants is confirmation that Marynarska Business Park is excelling as a professional yet friendly space for conducting business. We are pleased that companies such as Ford and Accord have appreciated the complex in every respect and remain among our tenants. We have also signed office leases with new tenants, NewCold and a tenant who remains confidential due to the nature of his business. It will occupy 4,000 m² in one of the buildings.– says Ewa Lubańska, Leasing Manager at Syrena Real Estate.
– In parallel, we are also commercialising the premises on the ground floors of our office buildings. We want new gastro and retail concepts to appear here, which will complement the offer of the Luxmed clinic and ‘Gorąco Polecam’ bakery and patisserie for the benefit of both our tenants and the local community.– adds Ewa Lubańska.
Marynarska Business Park is a complex of four office buildings with a total usable area of 46,000 m². As of 2020, the project is in the portfolio of Syrena Real Estate and PineBridge Benson Elliot. The complex has gained a new conference centre with rooms for meetings or co-working. For motorists, there is a car park located on 3 underground levels, where a total of 1,300 parking spaces are available for tenants and guests to the office buildings, with electric vehicle charging stations arriving soon. On the underground level, there is also a new bicycle zone with a single-track car park for 120 spaces, as well as a changing room with showers and eight charging stations for electric bicycles. Marynarska Business Park has a BREEAM In Use 2015 certificate at an Excellent level. The complex will also apply for further certifications once the upgrade is complete: Breeam In-Use in the new v6 system, WELL certificate, WELL Health & Safety and WIREDSCORE. The developer is also working with the Integration Foundation to make the investment as accessible as possible for people with disabilities.
The ongoing revitalisation of the Marynarska Business Park complex is a continuation of Syrena Real Estate and PineBridge Benson Elliot’s strategy of giving new life to older office buildings. The proprietary modernisation programme for the Służewiec complex is being carried out in the spirit of ESG and covers three areas – the surroundings of the buildings, the common areas of the office buildings and the heat and air conditioning ventilation systems. After extensive redevelopment, the outdoor area – the patio – will be transformed from a concrete desert into a green park of 6,000 m². with hills on which trees and native vegetation will grow. There will also be areas for rest and relaxation. The lobbies of the buildings will be given an elegant look, with artistic giant sculptures as a common design element. New ventilation systems will reduce electricity consumption, while water flow control will significantly reduce water consumption. The main designer of the new look of Marynarska Business Park is Pracownia Architektoniczna MJZ, the greenery project was developed by iGreen Architektura Krajobrazu, and the interior design is the work of Łoskiewicz Studio. The Reesco Group is responsible for the redevelopment and cmT for project management.
