Comments on: Krakow’s Office Market Surged in 2013 http://www.krakowpost.com/7355/2013/11/krakows-office-market-surged-in-2013 Wed, 14 Nov 2018 18:57:48 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.8 By: Tom Leach http://www.krakowpost.com/7355/2013/11/krakows-office-market-surged-in-2013#comment-291211 Sat, 04 Jan 2014 17:46:38 +0000 http://www.krakowpost.com/?p=7355#comment-291211 Agreed re: the future development of the SSC and BPO market in Krakow…

Agreed also re: office in the city centre… There will at last be some more office development in those very areas you mention: Szkieletor should at last be re-developed now there is zoning (next to Rondo Mogilskie) which will have a large portion of office surely as part of its make-up. Skanska are also close to starting with an office complex of circa 25,000 sq m GLA on ul. Przy Rondzie (next to Chopin Hotel) and Buma should also start with project of umpteen thousand sq m GLA close to Rondo Grzegorzeckie (where Ruch building will shortly be demolished). ECE are looking for potential purchasers of the large plots on ul. Pawia (north of Galeria Krakowska and behind Hotel Ibis Centrum) which should add close to another 100,000 sq m in itself.

Most of the business office parks are well accessible by car, however not by trams.
On the other hand, the city center still has a large unused space that could be developed to host modern office buildings (Aleja Powstania Warszawskiego between rondo grzegorzeckie and mogilskie), Pawia street, Rakowicka Street, area along the Wisla Riwer between Galeria Kazimierz and Zablocie. There is hardly any office development activity there and considering their locations and well developed public transport, those areas would be ideal for the development of large office complex that would then attract tenants from among international corporations coming to Krakow.
I cannot see much support from local government to convert these ares into new office parks and develop further Krakow’s city center.

Someone with deep pockets should build space for 10-15,000 FTEs near the airport in Liszki. Cracow is still one of the best places in Europe to live and hire people (despite the air, traffic, some aspects of adminstration, and the (lack of) an aquaduct. SSCs and BPOs are going to come in waves, like it or not. and the start up community is going to have some big global hits in the next 12-18 months.
