New EQlibrium for Walter Herz

Property and Facility Management
POLAND The Walter Herz consultancy has been chosen by Waryński group as the main leasing agent for the space in the EQ2 office building in Warsaw.

The project, also referred to as EQlibrium II, is being developed by Waryński group next to its EQlibrium I building on ul. Wschowska in the city’s western Wola district.

Walter Herz has been charged with drawing up the leasing strategy and the entire process of securing tenants, as well as coordinating the promotion and marketing of the project. EQ2 will comprise more than 4,300 sqm of usable space, along with 36 parking spaces on two underground levels and separate storage rooms. Retail and services could be located on the ground floor of the building, but the type and range of services has yet to be decided upon. On the ul. Ordona side of the building a green area is to be created. The developer is aiming to achieve BREEAM certification at the ‘Very Good’ level for the building, the environmental features of which include city hives on the roof’s green section.

“The surroundings of the building, the services in the neighbourhood and its great location are certainly a huge advantage of this project. Tenants will be able to move in in March 2021,” reveals Bogdan Borkowski, the CEO of Waryński.
