The Chopin Airport City project, launched by Warsaw Chopin Airport, was presented to potential investors at the MIPIM International Real Estate Trade Show in Cannes last week. The concept of the business park with entertainment and leisure facilities to be developed on 22.5 ha area has already gained industry recognition.
The area located near the Chopin Airport Terminal will be transformed into a modern business park open to the public.
Work on some of the construction projects is already drawing to a close.
As part of the project, the area located near the Chopin Airport Terminal will be transformed into a modern business park open to the public. An innovative combination of the concept of commercial development of the area and a creative approach to public space functions will result in a unique urban form, which should become one of the new architectural icons of the city.
The project initiated by Warsaw Chopin Airport's operator, 'Polish Airports' State Enterprise was presented at MIPIM last week in Cannes, as part of Warsaw's stand. The MIPIM trade show was its international debut and also the first attempt to obtain investors.
"MIPIM was a very fruitful time for our project. We had dozens of meetings with investors and developers who showed a lot of interest in our investment," says Michal Marzec, 'Polish Airports' General Director.
"We managed to establish crucial business contacts. It all looks very promising," concludes Marzec.
The project is aimed at attracting business customers. Chopin Airport City will be set in Warsaw, the capital of Poland, populated by nearly 2 million people. According to a recent CBRE report (2012) Warsaw is the second most attractive business location among the top targets for investors in Europe in 2012. Warsaw attracted more investors than Paris (third place), Berlin and Munich.
The Airport City's business concept requires developing appropriate office and conference facilities, corresponding to the highest international standards and meeting the expectations of the most demanding customers. Approximately 165,000 m² of usable space in 16 class-A office buildings will form a business park, providing modern offices, conference rooms and retail services.
Work on some of the construction projects to develop what is to become part of Chopin Airport City infrastructure is already drawing to a close. Set to open in 2013 are two new hotels, the five-star Renaissance by Marriott and the two-star Hampton b
