POLAND Snowflake floats into Lixa C

Office & mixed-use development
Silicon Valley based cloud computing specialist Snowflake has signed a 10-year lease for more than 7,000 sqm of office space in the recently completed Lixa C building in Warsaw.

Snowflake will occupy two floors of the building, which has been developed by Yareal. The tenant was represented during the negotiations by CBRE. The lease means that Lixa C is now 60 pct commercialised.

Snowflake’s offices will occupy almost 40 percent of the available space in building C, providing employees with comfortable working conditions and ensuring the further dynamic growth of the company in Poland. Since the outset, our vision was that Lixa should be ideal for large, demanding tenants looking for office space with flexible floor layouts that can be freely adapted. At the same time, our project was a response to the need for modern workplaces in bright, spacious premises, surrounded by greenery and with buildings on a human scale. These are the features that distinguish the Lixa complex from neighbouring high-rises.
Eric Dapoigny, the president of Yareal Polska

The first two buildings of Lixa, close to the Rondo Daszyńskiego roundabout in Warsaw’s Wola-Centrum district, have been in use since Q4 2000 and in January 2021 were sold to Hana Investment for EUR 82.2 mln. The recently completed building C offers 20,000 sqm. Eventually, the complex is to comprise five buildings with a total area of 77,000 sqm, the final two of which are now under preparation, together with more greenery and Lixa City Gardens, which will feature a range of retail, service and food outlets. The entire development should be completed around the end of 2023 or early 2024.
