Nordea Bank AB Branch in Poland is one of the tenants in Olivia Star, a newly constructed building of the Olivia Business Centre in Gdańsk. It leased two floors there occupying nearly 2600 sq.m. Olivia Business Centre is one of the most interesting, multi-functional office investments in Poland. Colliers International supported the Scandinavian firm in this transaction.
Nordea Bank AB Branch in Poland offers end-to-end IT solutions and financial services related to the support of processes of business entities being a part of the Scandinavian Nordea Group. It operates in two locations: in the Tricity and in Łódź. In addition to offices in Gdynia, ul. Łużycka, a part of the Nordea IT section responsible for the service for capital markets operates in the Olivia Business Centre in Gdańsk. This department will move to the 19th and 20th floors of the Olivia Star. Thanks to the lease of two floors in the new building, the Nordea Capital Markets IT department will be able to increase the employment to 250 people.
“We are very happy that Nordea decided to strengthen the cooperation with the Olivia Business Centre as one of the first firms. It chose the best quality. Olivia Star will be the first class A+ building in northern Poland, with an extremely long list of services offered to tenants and a series of solutions improving the comfort of work. For example, the elevation with tilt elements enabling the natural ventilation of all office floors is unique in such a high building; we designed and tested the façade ourselves. It will be the first such building in Poland”, stresses Maciej Kotarski, Lease Director in the Olivia Business Centre. “I believe that, also thanks to such innovations, Olivia Star will become an excellent place for Nordea business development”, he adds.
Nordea office in the Olivia Star with a view of the most beautiful panorama in Poland will be inspired by nature and the Scandinavian fiords. The design will include common areas, conference rooms and space for relaxation.
Olivia Star will increase leasable office space in the Olivia Business Centre from 73 thousand sq. m to nearly 120 thousand sq. m. The building will be the highest building in northern Poland (180 metres including Star spires). Its top floors with the viewing point, a terrace, cafe, restaurant and a conference centre will be available to the public. The ground floor of the high rise will be combined with a unique conservatory designed as a place of artistic and educational events. An additional 3-level underground car park will be built under the building.
Colliers International, one of the leading consulting firms operating on the commercial real estate market worldwide mediated in the transaction.
“The Olivia Business Centre team demonstrated their extremely flexible attitude to the customers’ needs again. The complex is the most modern building in the Tricity and high floors of Olivia Star will guarantee a spectacular view to the new tenant. I believe that the Nordea office in such a location will translate directly to the business success of the firm for which Colliers leased more than 12 thousand sq.m this year only”, says Błażej Kucharski, Colliers International Regional Director in the Tricity.
