The first tenants are moving into the offices of the tallest building in the European Union – in terms of architectural height. The Varso Tower quickly became the new symbol of the capital offering it all for even the most demanding tenants – as developer HB Reavis says.
Working in 310 meters high
The HB Reavis flagship investment changed a fragment of the centre of Warsaw. The 70,000 sqm skyscraper designed by Foster + Partners is one of the new symbols of the capital, as well as the tallest building in the European Union.
The impressive construction right next to the Warsaw Central Station emerged from the ground at the beginning of 2019, after the completion of works in the underground part of the facility. Less than two years later, the building reached its target height of 230 meters to the roof. After installing the spire in February 2021, Varso Tower grew to 310 meters and surpassed the Palace of Culture and Science and dominated the ranking of the tallest buildings in the European Union.
The highest garden in Warsaw
A year ago, on one of the terraces, 206 meters above the ground, 16 trees were planted, creating the highest garden in Warsaw. A dozen or so trees also appeared in front of the building and in the spacious lobby, decorated with hand-made ceramic mosaics.
The quality of the pro-ecological solutions used in the building, conducive to the well-being of users, has been appreciated by independent auditors BREEAM and WELL.
IT company and Law firms are the first tenants
Currently, tenants are arranging their offices inside the building. The first employees started moving into Varso Tower in September. Ultimately, the following companies will open their offices here: the IT service provider Box and the international law firms CMS and Greenberg Traurig.
Varso Tower is one of the three buildings of the Varso Place complex, which includes offices, a hotel, an innovation centre and a shopping and service arcade housing, among others, restaurants, a fitness club and a clinic. In line with the adopted strategy of active management and building the long-term value of the completed properties, HB Reavis is also the manager of Varso Place.
