Avanssur stays on in Warsaw Trade Tower
Avanssur, part of the international group AXA, has renewed its lease for close to 1,000 sq m in Globalworth’s Warsaw Trade Tower (WTT).
“The Polish branch of Avanssur has a team of several dozen IT professionals delivering international programming projects for AXA’s subsidiaries across Europe. We did take other buildings and locations into consideration, but we came to the conclusion that the best decision would be to stay on in our current office, mostly because of its location and easy access to transport,” says Piotr Kucharski, Head of the Polish branch of Avanssur.
“Warsaw Trade Tower boasts not only an iconic design, but also a superb location which is greatly appreciated by its current tenants and their workers. The modifications that we have already made and are planning for the building in the near future are definitely convincing our tenants to stay on in WTT. The renewal of our lease with Avanssur – as well as our agreements with other tenants – shows us that our strategy of modernising such a building as Warsaw Trade Tower is right. WTT is a landmark office building in Warsaw and our flagship property in the capital,” says Anna Korwin-Kulesza, Senior Leasing Manager, Globalworth Poland.
Avanssur was represented in the transaction by global real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield.
“We are pleased that we were able once again to assist Avanssur in their lease of office space. The decision to extend the lease in Warsaw Trade Tower demonstrates the importance of its location and excellent access to transport,” says Marcin Miazek, Associate, Cushman & Wakefield.
For this deal, the owner of the building was represented by Colliers International.
Avanssur SA Poland creates and develops IT platforms to sell and service insurance products, including in the UK and France. The company applies agile software development practices. A large amount of freedom fosters employee innovation, creativity and motivation, which enables flexibility in adapting to the changing expectations of business partners.
Warsaw Trade Tower is a 42-storey office tower in Warsaw’s Wola district and one of the tallest skyscrapers in the capital. In April last year, the property was acquired by Globalworth, a leading office investor in Central and Eastern Europe. The building comprises more than 45,000 sq m of office space with attractive communal areas, most of which have been refurbished. Insurance company AXA chose Warsaw Trade Tower for its Polish head office, along with such companies as American Express, Avanssur, Leroy-Merlin and Mattel. The building also has 400 parking spaces. It is located in Chłodna Street, near the junction of Towarowa Street and Solidarności Avenue, and close to the Rondo Daszyńskiego station of the second metro line.
