Strategy change for Sky Tower

Office & mixed-use development
POLAND Sky Tower in Wrocław is to be repositioned on the market through a reorganisation of its retail section.
Building owner LC Corp has drawn up a new strategy to make the centre stand out from its retail competitors. New culinary concepts are to be introduced to the restaurant section, and a number of events are to be held in the building in collaboration with the city’s cultural centres, local artists and the city authorities.

“We want the tenant-mix we create to match Sky Tower’s original and unique location so our tenant portfolio will be composed of brands that stand out not only in Wrocław but also in Poland. We are also in advanced negotiations to launch Sky Kitchen, which will be an extraordinary culinary concept,” says Agnieszka Solarz, the director of marketing at LC Corp. The company is to remain in partnership with those tenants in the building that fit the new strategy and lease extensions have been signed with Road American Restaurant and Costa Coffee.

“Since Sky Tower is also a tourist attraction, we are planning to expand and enhance our viewing platform on the 49th floor in the nearest future. This unique terrace is visited by over 300,000 people a year so we’re going to install a second lift to make access easier,” stated Monika Woźniak, the leasing manager at LC Corp. Opened in 2013, Sky Tower is one of the tallest buildings in Poland with a roof height of 212m. As well as its 25,000 sqm of retail facilities, it also includes 30,500 sqm. Its recreational facilities include a, spa, a sports centre, a bowling alley, a fitness club and a dance studio. There is also a medical centre in the building and parking spaces for 1,500 vehicles.
