Full Steam Ahead on Warsaw Spire
September 29, 2013
Builders are installing a glass facade in Building B of the Warsaw Spire complex in the center of Warsaw, which next year will become the new headquarters of Frontex, the European Union agency responsible for the security of the bloc's external borders. Frontex has leased 14,600 sq m of space in Building B. The lease is for 10 years.
Building B is one of three buildings in the Warsaw Spire complex. It is 55 meters tall, has 15 floors and will offer 20,000 sq m of office space. When completed, the Warsaw Spire complex will provide a total of 100,000 sq m of modern office space in a 220-meter 49-story tower building (Building A) and two adjacent 55-meter 15-story buildings (Buildings B and C). Building B will be constructed first, followed by Buildings A and C.
The Warsaw Spire complex is being built in an area bounded by Grzybowska, Łucka, Towarowa and Wronia streets. The complex will include a five-level underground parking garage for 1,300 cars.
Ghelamco is the developer and general contractor in the project. The design is by Belgian architectural practice M. & J-M. Jaspers - J. Eyers&Partners working together with the Polish-Belgian Projekt studio.
