"The SKYSAWA office and commercial complex will make a long-lasting impression on the up-and-coming office region in Świętokrzyska and on the Warsaw skyline. We are confident that the project will be another showcase for PORR in Poland. We have already realised numerous infrastructure projects in Poland and are delighted to once again have the chance to demonstrate our core competency in building construction”, said Karl-Heinz Strauss, CEO of PORR.

Construction work on the plot at Świętokrzyska will begin immediately after the construction site has been prepped. The first phase will involve the demolition, construction and earthworks. The entire project is expected to take 36 months: the completion of building A with an area of approximately 11,500 m2, ten storeys and a height of 40m is planned for the second quarter of 2021. Building B - a 155-metre tower with 40 storeys – is set to be finished in the second quarter of 2022. The consulting company Colliers International is responsible for marketing and sales of the investment.

High expectations on a prestigious project
"The key criteria when selecting the general contractor for the SKYSAWA project primarily related to the experience of the companies taking part in the tender and the attractiveness of their offer. We wanted the contractor who would build our flagship investment not only to have high-rise buildings in their portfolio, but also certified projects. If everything goes to plan, we will hand over the construction site to the general contractor in a few days", said Marcin Mazurek, CEO of Polski Holding Nieruchomości.

SKYSAWA is a modern office and commercial complex with a gross floor area of approximately 40,000 m2 and a total cubic capacity of 225,000 m³. The complex is in an excellent location - in the very centre of the capital, in the quarter of the Świętokrzyska, Twarda, Mariańska streets and Jana Pawła II avenue, next to the ONZ roundabout. SKYSAWA will have a direct connection with the metro station, making it one of the few buildings in Warsaw to do so.
