We are delighted that demanding lessees – and such K&L Gates certainly is – will appreciate the unique features of this project. Comfort of work is provided by integration of historic architecture with modern infrastructure worthy of an A class object. It should be stressed, that the investment is realised in compliance with the principles of sustainable construction, and it obtained an expected "very good" grade in the BREEAM precertification process – says Piotr M. Krawczyński, Managing Director and Member of the Board of Kulczyk Silverstein Properties.

Unique history, prestigious location

The complex located in the heart of Warsaw consists of:  Count Raczyński’s Town House, revitalised in the close cooperation with the Conservation Officer (5 000 sq. m of office space) and a new office part of the area of 7 600 sq. m, being constructed on the plot from the side of ul. Traugutta.
It offers 100 underground parking places to the lessees and guests of the office building. The town house which was built in the years 1907–1910 according to the design by Jan Heurich (son) in cooperation with Artur Goebel, was originally intended for holding the Krasińskis’ collections of books and works of art. During its construction, the property was bought by Count Edward Raczyński, turning it into an upscale profit-raising town house with department stores on the ground floor. For many years the property was a symbol of urban elegance of Warsaw. The significance of Małachowski Square, which has historically been - and still is - a place where the spheres of business, culture and art are blending, is demonstrated by the proximity of prominent institution, such as Zachęta Art Gallery, the State Ethnographical Museum, Academy of Fine Arts and Victoria Hotel. Location of the complex provides future lessees with easy access to public transport - metro, bus lines. The proximity to the beautiful, historical walking routes: Krakowskie Przedmieście and Saski Park could not be overrated.
