POLAND February’s Top Five – our most popular news last month

Eurobuild CEE
This month we welcome back our Top 5 feature – each month we will publish lists of the five most popular articles in Polish and English. The English version of the February Top 5 was dominated by acquisitions, but coming out on top was our article on... the Polish media protest.

5th place. The Top Five opens with the news about Swedish fund manager EQTs bid to take over US real estate investment manager Exeter Property Group. which owns warehouse portfolios in Poland and elsewhere. The transaction is waiting for the approval of the Polish anti-trust body.

4th place. Another news item that generated great interest was the resignation of Immofinanz’s CEO. Ronny Pecik has also signed an agreement to sell his stake in the Austrian real estate investor.

3rd place. You were also very keen to read about the strategic partnership of Czech warehouse developer CTP and new Polish company MDC² to develop full-service business parks throughout Poland.

2nd place. The news about Varso Tower also aroused a lot of emotion, since thanks to the mounting of its spire it has now become the tallest building in the European Union,

1st place. Maybe somewhat suprisingly, it was news only loosely connected to the real esate sector that attracted the greatest number of views in the English-language section of the Eurobuild CEE portal – this was our coverage of the day of protest by the Polish press against the tax the country’s government intends to impose on media publications. Thank you for supporting the campaign!

We also invite you to take a look at the Top 5 articles on the Polish-language section of the portal.

The ranking is based on the number of page views between February 1st and 28th 2021, according to Google Analytics.
