Yareal constructing apartments on hilltop overlooking Gdańsk

ODEA Park, Yareal's latest investment project in the Tricity, will include five apartment buildings with a stunning view of Gdańsk's historic Main City, located just 1.6 km away.

The real estate developer is currently building 120 apartments on Legnicka Street, which runs parallel to the larger Powstańców Warszawskich Street, opposite Wzgórze Focha in a quiet area of the Siedlce district. Finetech Construction, a company which has already completed several residential and office projects for Yareal, has been chosen as the general contractor for this project.


Finetech Construction is expected to complete construction of ODEA Park in the fall of 2024. The project was prepared by architects from Tricity-based Arch-Deco studio, which specializes in designing modern, high-quality apartment buildings. ODEA Park, which is located on the border of Gdańsk’s Downtown and Siedlce districts, is being built on a green hilltop at the end of cozy Legnicka Street. To protect neighbors from construction-related inconveniences, Yareal set up a separate access road to the site dedicated for trucks for the duration of construction. In doing so, it avoided clogging up Legnicka Street with heavy traffic, preserving its priceless, pre-war cobblestone.


ODEA Park’s unique location required we take an unconventional approach to its construction. Powstańców Warszawskich Street, which provides an excellent link with Gdansk’s city center and the city’s other districts, is located right nearby – just a few dozen meters from our investment. ODEA Park is being built on a sizable hill and above street level. And although the place located quite far away from other buildings and will soon provide future residents with breathtaking views of the city skyline, such conditions require that we take appropriate steps to protect the neighborhood and its residents. This is why we created an alternative access road to the construction site, agreeing on its route together with the project’s neighbors, city authorities, as well as with the French Embassy, which granted us access through the French Military Cemetery” – said Yareal’s Tri-City Regional Director, Katarzyna Rauber.


ODEA Park will be built on the area’s native ground level, so its apartments will be built on ground that is much higher than their surroundings. In light of this, Yareal will create a series of rain gardens around the investment.


"ODEA Park is another project implemented by us for Yareal, after the Pozytywny Mokotów housing estate in Warsaw and the LIXA office complex in Warsaw’s Wola district. We have a lot of experience with ambitious development projects, which is why we are even more satisfied with another investment of this type, this time in Gdańsk. ODEA Park is an extremely interesting project, not only because of the architecture of the buildings, the construction solutions used, but also the place where they are built. The awareness of respecting the place where we carry out projects is an expression of care for the natural environment, which is always inscribed in our company DNA, and ODEA Park perfectly expresses this idea" - adds Finetech Construction’s CEO, Włodzimierz Bogiel.


ODEA Park will not be fenced. Instead, the open housing estate will mark its boundaries using existing greenery and new plantings. The estate itself will include an additional building with a fully equipped common area for residents. Recreational areas and bicycle racks, as well as a playground, will be fitted between its apartment buildings. Residents will also be able to store their bicycles in several storage rooms in underground garages. Access to ODEA Park will be facilitated through several public transportation connections, as bus stops and a nearby streetcar line are within walking distance.


Upon completion, ODEA Park will consist of five cozy residential buildings with underground garages, which will house 120 families in apartments spanning up to 160 sq. m. Residents of second-floor apartments will have access to mezzanines which will significantly increase the effective floor area at their disposal, with some rooms in selected apartments reaching an impressive height of up to 5-6 meters. Meanwhile, owners of apartments on the first floor will have access to private gardens.


ODEA Park’s natural surroundings and green solutions, such as an in-house solar power plant, coupled with easily accessible public transportation, have secured a Very Good rating on the estate's BREEAM green construction certification. Additionally, the investment is also taking part in a pilot project for Green Building certification from the Polish Green Building Council (PLGBC).

Warsaw’s Wspólna 47/49 office building fully leased

Yareal Polska has completed the commercialisation of Wspólna 47/49 boutique office building.


In 2022, the company leased out more than 4,000 sqm. of available office space, with Enervigo Energy, Foundation for Ukraine, and a representative of the European institutions sector added to the building’s tenant roster. This means that the building, located in the very heart of Warsaw, at the junction of Wspólna and Marszałkowska streets, is now 100% leased.


Wspólna 47/49 is an eight-storey, human-scale office building with approximately 7,800 sqm. of office space. Wspólna 47/49 is the first project where Yareal Polska is acting as asset manager on behalf of YAM Invest. This project falls within the strategy of Yareal to develop third-party asset management business.


Last year saw intensive asset management activity and the re-commercialisation of Wspólna 47/49 office building. Given the challenging macroeconomic environment, this was a formidable task. I am really pleased that our strategy has worked well and today we are proudly announcing the substantial success of attracting new tenants and fully leasing the building. In Wspólna 47/49 office building, we offered our clients a lot of flexibility in the choice of spaces and contract types: here we use the so-called rolling contracts, which are rare on the market. This ensures that companies have much more freedom in terms of planning their future and developing their business than in the case of standard long-term lease commitments,’ said Marta Zawadzka, Leasing Director at Yareal Polska.


In addition to 7,800 sqm. of office space, the tenants of Wspólna 47/49 office building can use a three-storey underground car park for 125 vehicles, a bicycle room, and two terraces on the top floors of the building. In the immediate vicinity of the building there are countless retail and service outlets, restaurants, and vibrant entertainment infrastructure (theatres, cinemas, museums).


The location is one of the greatest assets of Wspólna 47/49 development. The office building is at the corner of Wspólna and Marszałkowska streets, with instant access to all means of public transport (metro station, bus and tram stops, city bike stations, and the Central Railway Station). The proximity of one of the city’s main transport hubs at Aleje Jerozolimskie means that it is not only easy to reach the offices by public transport but also by car.


BREEAM In-Use certificates were issued to the building in Asset Performance and Building Management categories at 'Excellent' and 'Very Good' levels, respectively. The advantages of Wspólna 47/49 have long been appreciated by well-known Polish and international companies, with LabCorp, OneSystem, Trei Real Estate, Datalogic or 4VC, to name a few, among its tenants.


Yareal starts construction of NEOWO – a new residential estate by Warsaw’s II metro line

Construction of the first phase of Yareal’s NEOWO estate in Warsaw's Bemowo district is to begin soon.


The investment is located just three hundred meters from the planned Chrzanów metro station, at the intersection of Człuchowska and Lazurowa Streets. This high-standard residential complex – which will be equipped with its own solar power plant, thanks to which residents will be able to save on electricity bills – will become a new home for 163 families. This will be the first residential estate in Poland to feature upcycled wind turbine propellers as street furniture.


CFE has been chosen as the project’s general contractor. Along with the investment’s first stage, the developer will also construct part of a public square that will lead to the entrance of the Chrzanów metro station. This 300-meter-long green axis, which will be open to both NEOWO residents and the public, will be fitted with street furniture made from upcycled wind turbine propellers. The first pieces have already been installed near Yareal’s sales office in the Bemowo district.


NEOWO will bring urban and architectural order to a district that is still in the process of settling into its conclusive urban fabric. Our project will be built alongside construction of the Chrzanów station of Warsaw’s II metro line, which is to be completed in three years’ time. NEOWO residents will not only live in a modern and well-designed housing estate, but they will also benefit from having an ecological and convenient means of urban transport at their doorstep – the Warsaw metro – which will be located right next door, by Rayskiego Street. This proximity of sustainable public transportation and an array of other ecological solutions, such as an internal solar power plant, have ensure a Very Good rating on the investment’s BREEAM green building certificate; the highest rating that has so far been awarded to only a handful of residential developments across Poland” – said Yareal Vice President, Jacek Zengteler.


NEOWO will feature popular apartment sizes ranging from 31 – 75 sq. m. available in either one- or two-bedroom layouts. Upper floors will include apartments with spacious mezzanines, effectively increasing their area by nearly 30 sq. m. There will also be a few 4-bedroom apartments at the estate, spanning 80 – 95 sq. m, as well as two 125-sq.m. 5-room apartments with large balconies. A majority of NEOWO’s future residents are young families that are looking to improve their current living conditions.


The roof of NEOWO’s first residential building will include a sunny terrace with potted plants and recreational equipment. Outside, there will be an internal courtyard with plenty of greenery and shaded bicycle racks. Even more bicycle racks will be installed underground, meaning NEOWO will include up to 160 bicycle parking spaces. The green courtyard will become a meeting place for residents and will be fitted with a playground and a recreational area with garden furniture. The garden will be both recreational and social, as well as utilitarian, as residents will have flower boxes at their disposal to grow their own plants, flowers, or vegetables and herbs for home cooking. Such community gardens are a popular feature of many modern housing developments, including Yareal's Pozytywny Mokotów estate.


The underground garage will have a total of 170 parking spaces, about half of which will be primed to accommodate private EV charging stations. E-mobility infrastructure will also include 12 parking spaces with ready-for-use EV chargers. NEOWO will become another Yareal investment to include its own solar power plant, helping residents save on communal expenses such as electricity costs for lighting used in the underground garage.


Like all of Yareal's residential developments, NEOWO will undergo rigorous BREEAM green building certification. Yareal is a leader in green construction in Poland and has so far completed over 40 residential, housing and offices buildings that have undergone green building certification.

Over 90 pct. of LIXA C is now commercialized

Hoogwegt Poland will occupy nearly 1,000 sq. m. of office space on the first floor of recently completed office building C, 90 pct. of which has now been commercialized.


The Polish branch of Hoogwegt Group, one of the world’s leading providers of milk powders, butter fats, and whey products for the dairy market, has signed a 7-year lease for its new headquarters at Yareal’s LIXA office complex near the Daszynski Roundabout in Warsaw.


The Polish branch of global dairy market supplier Hoogwegt Group, which operates across 130 markets worldwide, will move into the complex in the spring of next year.


At Hoogwegt, we are on a mission for constant innovation to provide our customers with better products and improved services. Our Polish branch – which was founded 30 years ago – plays an important role in our international business, and as such we needed a new, representative office in the heart of Warsaw’s business district. We decided on the LIXA complex as it provides excellent conditions for our team and for the fulfillment of our future goals; including modern office space and well-fitted urban infrastructure – including a well-developed public transportation system, a subway station nearby, parking lots, bicycle paths, and changing rooms with showers for cyclists. The building itself features an array of useful services and is also a place where our employees can run errands or relax among soothing greenery. Hoogwegt Group have been supplying top-quality products and services to the international dairy industry for 57 years, so we value quality and optimal working conditions that will foster our further growth” – said Maciej Kędzierski, President of the Board of Directors at Hoogwegt Poland Sp. z o.o.


The LIXA complex is Yareal’s largest project to date and building C, which is now nearly fully commercialized, has delivered 20,000 sq. m. of top class office space to the Warsaw market.


So far, we have delivered 48,000 sq. m. of superbly designed, flexible office space within the LIXA project. We are pleased to welcome another established global player among our tenants. Hoogwegt Poland‘s presence at LIXA confirms that the campus-like office complex is well suited to the needs of major global firms and industry leaders. I am certain that LIXA’s many amenities, such as its green gardens and rich service offer, will ensure the comfort of Hoogwegt’s office employees and contribute to the company's further successes, both in Poland and across the globe” – commented Marta Zawadzka, Leasing Director, Yareal Polska.


Hoogwegt Poland was aided by consultants from Keystone Real Estate during its negotiations with Yareal.


Our client, Hoogwegt Poland, was looking for an office that would foster productiveness and support their team in their daily work. A sustainable and safe working environment, coupled with a perfect location and numerous amenities nearby – Yareal’s LIXA complex ticked all the boxes. We are proud to have helped Hoogwegt Poland in the process of finding their new headquarters in Poland” – said Kamil Komoński, Keystone Real Estate.


The LIXA complex is being built in stages near the Daszynski Roundabout in Warsaw’s Wola district. Once complete, this will be one of the largest office complexes in Poland. It’s first three office buildings, with a total leasable area of up to 48,000 sq. m., have already been commissioned and are almost fully leased. Once the remaining two buildings are completed, LIXA will form a complex of five buildings with a total area of 77,000 sq. m.


The final phase of Yareal's flagship development – office buildings D and E – are being built on the west-facing side of the LIXA City Gardens. This 150-meter-long walkway, which connects Kasprzaka and Giełdowa Streets, will feature an array of stores, service points and eateries. Advisors from consulting company JLL are currently working on commercializing the premises. The walkway will be a place where office workers can run their necessary errands by day, and its numerous restaurants and bars will cater to the area’s residents by night. The LIXA City Gardens will provide access to two internal, green garden courtyards which, together with the project’s cascading terraces, will include over half a hectare of publicly accessible areas with trees, shrubs, lawns, and a pond.


LIXA was designed by the renowned HRA studio and built in accordance with the requirements and principles of contemporary green building and BREEAM certification. The investment features numerous environmentally friendly solutions that ensure an Excellent BREEAM rating, including the exploitation of low-emission concrete and several hundred tons of recycled aluminum; a reusable material with a negligible carbon footprint. Yareal is also finalizing WELL Health-Safety certification for the LIXA project, a confirmation of the high standard of safety procedures employed within its buildings; an especially important aspect considering the possible return of a global pandemic.

Apartments at Yareal’s Rezydencja Iwicka ready for occupancy

Yareal is about to commission another residential development in Warsaw.


The Rezydencja Iwicka investment, which consists of four cozy urban villas set amongst lush greenery in the heart of the capital’s Lower Mokotów district, are set to become a new home for 88 families. Residents began collecting the keys to their homes at the beginning of the month. Meanwhile, one final mezzanine apartment spanning 135 sq. m. and equipped with a terrace and a large balcony remains on offer.


The development is a brief walk away from the southern entrance to the Łazienki Park, as well as two other parks – Sielecki and Morskie Oko. Its attractive location and an array of modern solutions have ensured Rezydencja Iwicka receives a Very Good rating in the BREEAM green building certification scheme – the highest level awarded to only a handful of residential investments across Poland.


Residents and visitors will enter Rezydencja Iwicka via a shaded walkway with a striking arcade and a representative reception area. Next to it, they’ll find a convenient storage room for courier deliveries, as well as a community clubroom exclusively available to residents. This will be a place for residents to work in during the day or hold social gatherings in the evenings, watch movies or sports matches together, or organize family celebrations. Spanning over 70 sq. m., the clubroom has been fully equipped with a kitchenette, a comfortable bathroom, an immersive cinema coupled with comfortable furniture, and an advanced smart home system which controls the lighting, shades, and the air conditioning” – says Yareal Vice-President Jacek Zengteler.


The investment consists of three courtyards that have been landscaped using large shrubs, climbers and perennials to create a climatic, minimalist garden. Inside, the buildings’ common areas have been finished with veneer, natural stone and other noble materials that create a unique, welcoming aura thanks to their discreet LED lighting.


Yareal’s Rezydencja Iwicka has been fitted with practical and security-enhancing solutions including face and license plate recognition software, and bicycle owners will be able to store their two-wheelers in a convenient cycle storage room. Moreover, some of the parking spaces in the underground garage have been adapted for electric vehicles, with drivers having the option of charging their cars with e-mobility stations equipped with individual electricity meters. All apartment owners receive as standard a smart home technology package from Fibaro, giving them greater control over their electricity consumption, appliances and home security.


As part of the investment, Yareal funded a new running track for students at the Cervantes High School complex, and also carried out renovation works inside the school. Students will also be able to use a new sports field soon, another amenity fully funded by Yareal, with construction scheduled for completion in the fall.


The elegant, four-story urban villas that make up Rezydencja Iwicka were designed by Maas Projekt, with the studio’s architects going to great lengths to adapt the project to the characteristics of neighboring buildings. The investment has been erected near the Łazienki Park in Warsaw's Lower Mokotów district, at the intersection of Iwicka and Krasnolecka Streets, in an area surrounded by rows of towering, aged trees.

Komercjalizacja biurowca LIXA C na finiszu

Yareal zbliża się do końca komercjalizacji trzeciego już biurowca wchodzącego w skład flagowej inwestycji dewelopera – kompleksu LIXA na warszawskiej Woli.


Kolejnym najemcą budynku biurowego LIXA C został została jedna z najdłużej działających na polskim rynku biur serwisowanych - firma Powierzchnie zajmowane przez w oddanym niedawno do użytku biurowcu LIXA C zajmą ponad 3300 mkw. Po podpisaniu ostatnich umów z najemcami, w LIXA C pozostało dostępnych już zaledwie kilkanaście procent z ogólnej powierzchni biurowej mierzącej 20 000 mkw. świadczy usługi biur serwisowanych, pracowni coworkingowych i wirtualnych biur. Zawarta z Yareal umowa najmu całego 5 piętra w budynku LIXA C została podpisana na 10 lat.


Od wielu lat dostarczamy rynkowi elastyczne przestrzenie oraz usługi, które są niezbędne do rozpoczęcia i prowadzenia działalności gospodarczej. Uruchamiając kolejną warszawską lokalizację w LIXA C chcemy zapewnić ofertę dla najbardziej wymagających klientów, których zmienna dynamika potrzeb biurowych wymaga obecności w biznesowym centrum stolicy. Bliskość Ronda Daszyńskiego i stacji drugiej linii metra, w połączeniu z unikalnymi w tym rejonie zielonymi ogrodami, z pewnością będzie atutem dla przyszłych użytkowników biur w LIXA C, udostępnianych w ramach usług Lokalizacja i standard biurowca nie ma sobie równych w tym rejonie, dlatego z radością przygotujemy jego przestrzenie, aby służyły rozwojowi biznesu wymagającego elastyczności i solidności usług biurowych” – powiedział Piotr Augustyn, prezes


Powoli kończymy kompletowanie najemców w najnowszym, trzecim już biurowcu, wybudowanym w ramach kompleksu LIXA.

Najemcę w transakcji reprezentowała firma Savills, świadcząca usługi doradcze na rynku nieruchomości.


Elastyczne powierzchnie biurowe zyskują w ostatnich latach wielu zwolenników. Wchodzące do Polski firmy bardzo często decydują się na takie rozwiązania, zanim przeniosą się do docelowego biura, co pozwala im zoptymalizować koszty na etapie budowania zespołu. Loftmill to nowa marka uznanego i bardzo doświadczonego operatora powierzchni coworkingowych i cieszymy się, że mogliśmy pomóc w jej debiucie i wejściu na stołeczny rynek” – komentuje Jarosław Pilch dyrektor działu powierzchni biurowych, reprezentacja najemcy w Savills, który stoi również na czele Workthere w Polsce.

Dotychczas Yareal zrealizował trzy budynki oferujące łącznie 48 000 mkw. powierzchni biurowej i usługowej. Obecnie trwa realizacja ostatniego etapu projektu, na którą składają się dwa biurowce D i E, zlokalizowane po zachodniej stronie wielkomiejskiego pasażu LIXA City Gardens, który będzie łączył kompleks w całość. To nowo powstały 150-metowy deptak łączący ulice Kasprzaka i Giełdową, wzdłuż którego będą funkcjonowały lokale usługowe. Oferta pasażu w ciągu dnia będzie zapewniała możliwość załatwienia najpotrzebniejszych spraw przez pracowników biur, a po godzinach pracy będzie odpowiadała na potrzeby mieszkańców okolicznych osiedli. Zielony pasaż zapewni dodatkowo połączenie z dwoma wewnętrznymi, ogólnodostępnymi dziedzińcami ogrodowymi, które razem z kaskadowymi tarasami zapewnią najemcom i gościom ponad pół hektara urządzonej zieleni.


Kompleks LIXA, który zaprojektowała renomowana pracownia architektoniczna HRA, został poddany certyfikacji w międzynarodowym systemie BREEAM, z oceną Excellent. Inwestycja jest realizowana w zgodzie z zasadami zrównoważonego budownictwa, z wykorzystaniem przyjaznych dla środowiska technologii i rozwiązań, w tym setek ton niskoemisyjnego aluminium pochodzącego z recyklingu i wyróżniającego się minimalnym śladem węglowym.

Over 80 pct. of LIXA’s newest office building has been leased

Advanced Power Solutions Poland (formerly Panasonic Energy Poland), a leading global manufacturer of batteries sold under the Panasonic brand, is among the newest tenants of office building LIXA C.


The company’s headquarters will occupy over 720 sq. m. of the building’s first floor. LIXA C was commissioned in the spring of this year.


LIXA C offers a total area of over 20,000 sq. m. It is the third building in the LIXA complex, located at the intersection of Wolska and Karolkowa Streets. Advanced Power Solutions is the fourth tenant that has decided to move their new headquarters to this building in Yareal’s modern office complex.


We were looking for a site for our new headquarters which would offer the highest standards in modern office space, be in a prime location and have good public transport connections. LIXA will provide our team with comfortable working conditions in an attractive and contemporary office environment, fostering greater effectivity and giving our employees access to useful services and green areas, which are always a much-valued perk. Continuous business growth requires a flexible and modern office that is much more than just a place to work. This transition to LIXA is an important step for our team” – said Jacek Pniewski, Chief Financial Officer from Advanced Power Solutions.


Advanced Power Solutions is yet another global tech brand that has chosen to locate its headquarters in the LIXA office complex. I am glad that that tech companies are choosing to move to our flagship office investment as we created LIXA with global, innovative brands in mind. The signing of a 5-year lease agreement with Advanced Power Solutions means that we will soon complete the commercialization of LIXA C, as only around ten percent of its office area will remain available” – commented Eric Dapoigny, CEO of Yareal Polska.


The tenant was represented by experts from ITRA Polska.


"We have found the optimal solution for our client who was looking for an office with easy access to public transport and on-site amenities for employees. LIXA meets these requirements, and at the same time, provides its users with a growth perspective within the location, thanks to the planned development of new buildings. This is a crucial argument for international organizations for which flexibility of the workspace is key", comments Izabela Kołcz, Advisor in ITRA Polska.


Composed of five separate buildings and offering a total target area of ​​77,000 sq. m. the LIXA complex is the largest office investment in real estate developer Yareal’s history. The complex’s first three buildings – A, B and C – have been commissioned and offer a total office and service area of ​​48,000 sq. m. Construction is currently underway on the investment’s final stage, i.e. office buildings D and E, which will be located by the LIXA City Gardens; a newly created 150-meter-long retail, restaurant and service promenade. It will feature two separate entrances from the complex’s public gardens. Advisors from consulting company JLL are currently working on commercializing the premises in the LIXA City Gardens, focusing on creating an optimal mix of tenants that will cater to employees working in LIXA during the daytime and to the area’s residents by night and on weekends. Once the project is complete and the promenade is opened, LIXA tenants will gain access to two green garden courtyards and terraces spanning ​​over half a hectare.


LIXA is being built in accordance with the requirements and principles of contemporary green building and BREEAM certification. The investment, which was designed by the renowned HRA studio, features numerous environmentally-friendly solutions that ensure an Excellent BREEAM rating, including the exploitation of several hundred tons of recycled aluminum; a reusable material with one of the lowest carbon footprints in the world. The investment is also applying for WELL Health-Safety certification, a confirmation of the high standard of safety procedures employed within its buildings.
