Plans for two new skyscrapers that will take root on the site of the Atrium International office complex have been revealed by Strabag Real Estate.
Designed by architects from the Medusa Group, the project will include one 34-storey tower that will peak out at 131.5-meters, and a smaller sister that will reach 17-storeys. Together, the duo will offer 47,000 sq/m of space.
Titled Upper One, the taller skyscraper will be given over to offices, whilst the lower one will most likely serve as a hotel. Set to be completed in 2026, the project will replace Atrium, an iconic piece of 1990s real estate that was once considered as symbolic of Warsaw’s free market shift.
Łukasz Ciesielski, director of Strabag Real Estate, said: “The old office building has not stood the test of time, and the economic development of the city cannot be stopped. Therefore, we are starting a new stage in the history of this location, which we have called Upper One.”
Continuing, he said: “Our ambition is to respond to the untapped potential of the plot and the growing activity of tenants in Warsaw. We believe that the 131.5 m high office building, the first in the country equipped with a geothermal system and many pro-ecological solutions, will define a new workplace standard and set trends for the real estate industry for the coming years.”
