Following the latest trends in flex office growth, Savills new office will be based in flexible spaces provided by Regus. Its Katowice office will be located in building B of the Silesia Business Park, 150 Chorzowska Street.
“The strategic location of Katowice and further infrastructure improvements which will shorten the train journey time to Krakow to just one hour this year make this city one of the key and fastest-growing locations in southern Poland. Our new office will help us get closer to our clients and further enhance our response to their needs. I strongly believe in Silesia’s potential and growing importance to the Polish economy. I also have a strong sentimental attachment to this region, where I come from and whose growth I’ve been watching for years,” says Tomasz Buras, CEO, Savills Poland.
Savills is a letting agent on two office buildings in Katowice, both are owned by M7 Real Estate and are located near the Valley of Three Ponds. One is Green Park, a complex of eight buildings with a total area of 25,000 sq m, and the other is Atrium in Graniczna Street, offering 12,800 sq m.
Upper Silesia has always been one of the most attractive manufacturing and logistics locations. At the end of June 2020, it had more than 3.3 million sq m of modern warehouse and industrial space. Savills has been active on the Silesian market ever since it came to Poland and has had for several years its own local industrial sector expert there advising companies looking for properties to let.
“Katowice alone currently has approximately 160,000 sq m of warehouse and industrial space in the pipeline. The city offers a potential to deliver both small business units and large logistics parks on its outskirts. It is the most optimal location for many companies on account of the combination of high-quality properties, labour availability, excellent infrastructure and the presence of contractors and sub-suppliers,” says Michał Kulig, Senior Consultant, Industrial Agency, Savills, who is the firm’s regional representative in Upper Silesia.
