In recent years Kraków has become one of the biggest office centers in Poland. Huge demand for office space results, among others, from very high interest of companies from the modern business service sector in the capital of the Małopolska region, developed infrastructure and huge numbers of educated staff. In response Kraków’s developers invest in innovative office centers.
Thanks to huge interest of modern companies from the business service sector, new jobs have been springing up in Kraków for several years. Employers appreciate such assets of the city as well developed transportation infrastructure and proximity of the Kraków Airport – the second biggest airport in Poland. Another important advantage of the capital of the Małopolska region is the A4 motorway and the planned S7 expressway connecting the city with Warsaw.
Kraków has 21 schools of higher education, including some of the best academic centers in Poland, such as the Jagiellonian University and the AGH University of Science and Technology. Each year Kraków’s universities release nearly 50 thousand educated specialists.
According to the Tholon report from 2015, one of the world’s most important studies of this type in the world, Kraków is the best location in Europe and the ninth location globally for the outsourcing industry.
Consequently, the demand for office space increases and leads to increased developer activity in this area. Podium Park, executed by Podium Investment, is one of the most interesting office buildings currently being built in Kraków. The modern office complex is being built in Kraków’s Czyżyny at al. Jana Pawła II. The first project stage will be completed in June 2018.
The office building is located in near proximity of Kraków University of Technology, Technology Park, Lotników Polskich Park, University of Physical Education and Tauron Arena. The complex has direct access to city transport and very good connections with other districts and the most important business centers throughout Poland. The Third Kraków Ring Road, which is located only 150 m from the facility, ensures unconstrained access to each place in Kraków, and thanks to the Fourth Ring Road, located 5.5 km from the office building, you can quickly and easily access important places on Poland’s business map.
Podium Park is a modern complex made up of 3 office buildings. In each of them, above-standard environmental protection, technology and bicycle infrastructure have been planed. In addition, the project is one of the first in Poland to have obtained the prestigious BREEAM certificate at the Outstanding level.
Podium Park will have numerous facilities, such as electronic car, bicycle and scooter rental services, 36 electric car charging stations or exceptional urban farming zone.
In 2016, over 50 thousand employees in the modern business services industry were employed in Kraków, which puts the city in the first position in Poland, ahead of Warsaw, Wrocław and the Tri-City.
