POLAND Freightliner happy in IBC

Office & mixed-use development
Rail freight services provider Freightliner PL has renewed its lease of 1,200 sqm of office space in the International Business Center in central Warsaw.

Freightliner PL provides cross-border between Poland and Germany. It is a member of the global Genesee & Wyoming Group, whose majority shareholder is investment fund Brookfield. It has been present in Poland since 2007 and occupies an entire floor in the IBC B building.

Deka Immobilien, the owner of the complex, was represented during the transaction by Savills, the exclusive leasing agent of the property.

We are delighted that Freightliner PL trusted us again and chose to stay on in the International Business Center. I am confident that the changes planned for the complex will be appreciated by all tenants and will help bring employees back to the office, which combines the advantages of a prime location in the centre of Warsaw and its proximity to the Pole Mokotowskie park.
Monika Wakulska, an associate director in the office landlord representation department of Savills

IBC, which is next to the Politechnika metro station, comprises two buildings with a combined office area of over 36,000 sqm. Its anchor tenants include PwC. Deka Immobilien acquired the office complex in H2 2012.
