Warsaw Stock Exchange-listed developer Echo Investment has officially launched construction on its West Gate office project on ul. Lotnicza 12 in Wrocław, Lower Silesia. Even though work on the construction site commenced in December 2012, the ceremony, which included signing an official “foundation act” for the building, marks the official start of the project.

The document, which usually lists all the parties involved in the project, was signed by the deputy mayor of Wrocław Adam Grehl, the president of the board of Echo Investment Piotr Gromniak and Robert Muszyński the president of the board of Kielce-based Arcad architectural studio, which designed the building.
The L-shaped office scheme will deliver 16,000 sqm of GLA on six floors. It will also contain an underground parking lot. Its facade will be dominated by large glazed areas. It is situated at the intersection of ul. Na Ostatnim Groszu, ul. Milenijna and ul. Legnicka. Its location allows for easy access to Wrocław’s center and the city’s airport through the A8 highway bypass, part of the north-south S8 expressway.
“Our company has been present in Wrocław’s market for six years. Thanks to our successful cooperation with the city authorities we were able to carry out projects in all three of the key segments of our company’s operations: [shopping mall] Pasaż Grunwaldzki, [office building] Aquarius Business House and the Przy Słowiańskim Wzgórzu residential estate,” said Mr Gromniak. The value of the developer’s projects in Wrocław exceeded zł.1.2 billion and provided useable area of 80,000 sqm.
The building will be equipped with energy-efficient air conditioning and ventilation systems, suspended ceilings, raised floors and an environmental-friendly lighting. Cyclists commuting to work in the building will have bike racks, showers and locker rooms at their disposal. The developer is in the process of securing a BREEAM certificate for the building.
