Lauded as one of ‘the new symbols of Warsaw’, the Varso Tower is now officially open for business after welcoming its first tenant yesterday.
Designed by Foster + Partners, the EU’s tallest architectural structure has been dubbed the ‘final showpiece’ of the mixed-use Varso Place project.
Reaching 310-meters to the tip of its spire, the record-breaking construction also boasts Warsaw’s highest garden thanks to the 16 trees that were planted at 206-meters above ground level in mid-2021.
“A key part of the project is its greenery,” states the developer, HB Reavis. “Another dozen trees decorate the spacious, mosaic-lined lobby and pepper the surroundings.”
“Varso Tower’s timeless, slender design is emphasized by the boomerang-shaped steps near its summit, while the façade’s vertical divide brings a lightness and elegance to its character,” they continued.
The building has already been certified as ‘Outstanding’ and ‘Gold’ by BREEAM and WELL, and features 70,000 sq/m of ESG-centric workspace.
The tower’s completion does not, however, signal an end to the headlines. On October 8th, the tower will welcome 500 runners who will race up 53-floors and 1,400 stairs to compete in a charity run seeking to raise money for Ukraine.
