POLAND Mennica Legacy Tower ready to go

Office & mixed-use development
Mennica Legacy Tower in Warsaw’s Wola-Centrum district has received its occupancy permit.

The main tenant, MBank, is to open its new head office on 45,600 sqm of 49,600 sqm of the leasable space in the 140m building before the end of the month. The joint developers of the project are Golub GetHouse and Mennica Polska (the Polish Mint). The building is BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ certified.

We believe that we have created a unique building that guarantees the most comfortable conditions for business development. Its city-forming features are also notable, such as the public urban space and services, which can be used not only by the employees of the complex but also by local residents. Four years after the beginning of the first construction work, we are opening Mennica Legacy Tower for the operating activity of the tenants.
Piotr Turchoński, the development director of Golub GetHouse

Apart from MBank, the building will house the offices of Golub GetHouse and Mennica Polska, as well as a Meet & Eat restaurant and a Zdrofit fitness club, which will move into the facility in January 2021.

The entire Mennica Legacy Tower complex comprises the 140m Tower and the neighbouring 43m Western Building (completed in November 2019 and entirely leased to WeWork). The architectural design of the Mennica Legacy Tower complex (63,800 sqm) was the work of Chicago-based architectural studio Goettsch Partners with local partner Epstein. The general contractor was Warbud.
