The second stage of High5ive – a Krakow investment implemented by Skanska – won the first place in the Prime Property Prize 2020 competition in the Investment of the Year – Office Space Market category. Among other things, the quality and innovation of the project and the process of its commercialization were assessed. The award was presented during the Property Forum 2020 gala.
The Prime Property Prize competition was held for the ninth time. The idea behind this initiative is to select companies and projects that have had the greatest impact on the commercial real estate market in the last year, as well as people who played a key role in the development of the entire industry.
By the decision of the voters, buildings 4 and 5, i.e. the second stage of the High5ive office complex developed by Skanska, won first place in the Investment of the Year – Office Space Market category. This award is granted to new or expanded office buildings and office complexes, which were completed between September 2019 and September 2020. The competition assesses the quality and innovativeness of the project, implementation time, commercialization process, innovative solutions, architecture, and the impact of the investment on the environment and the economy of the region.
– We often say that office buildings constructed by Skanska are top quality. Granting the Prime Property Prize 2020 to High5ive is the best confirmation of this – says Monika Tkacz, Leasing Manager at Skanska Office Unit. – We are very pleased that High5ive has been recognized not only by our clients and business partners, but also experts and people who are actively interested in the office real estate market in Poland. It is a great honor for us, but also makes us even more committed to continue working and setting the best standards in the field of office space – adds Monika Tkacz.
High5ive office buildings have become a permanent fixture in the business landscape of Krakow. Great location and communication with all parts of the city are considered a big advantage. The project provides many amenities, including an original operating system Connected by Skanska, which allows employees to enter the building using only a special mobile application. Tenants can enjoy a Scandinavian lobby, concierge services, rich infrastructure for cyclists and a basketball court.
The second stage of the investment has 1,900 sqm of anti-smog pavement made of green concrete, which reduces compounds from car exhaust fumes that are harmful to humans. The buildings are applying for the LEED Platinum and the Facility without Barriers certificates.
Stage II of the High5ive complex offers nearly 37,000 sqm of modern office space.
