The biggest transaction closed recently by CA Immo was the extension of the lease agreement by
a company from FinTech industy at the Sienna Center office building. This tenant decided to stay in the building for the next five years, leasing almost 3,000 sqm of space. What is more, PGE Systemy decided to continue its operations at Warsaw Towers, while Ekoenergetyka SA Group extended its lease. This manufacturer of charging stations for electric vehicles leased an additional 1,000 sqm on the fifth floor of the Postępu 14 office building. Other lease extension agreements were signed at the Saski Point, Saski Crescent, Bitwy Warszawskiej Business Center and Wspólna 47/49 buildings. New tenants joined facilities such as Bitwy Warszawskiej Business Center (IMOL) and Sienna Center (Westrock).
Andrzej Mikołajczyk, Managing Director of CA Immo Poland, commented: 'We look back at a first half-year 2021 with a stable operating performance record. Amidst a market situation that remains subdued due to ongoing work-from-home discussions and new virus variants, we achieved good leasing results. This also shows that remote working has not radically changed the need for offices, which for most companies remain the central place for work, communication, and exchange of knowledge and experience. At CA Immo we consistently focus on acquiring and managing top-quality office properties and maintaining partnership relations with our tenants, which is especially important in uncertain economic times.'
