The group of Wave's tenants keeps on getting bigger. In November they will be joined by Armatis, a French company with an international dimension, which will occupy 1,800 sqm, and set up its first office in Tri-City. The new tenant of the Skanska-constructed building is planning to recruit employees with a good command of French, Italian, and German. Cushman & Wakefield experts advised the tenant on the lease agreement.
Armatis is an international company with its roots in France. It has 22 offices in different parts of the world. In Poland, it is already present in Warsaw and Kraków – and this is the debut on the Tricity market. Armatis specializes in relationship marketing, consulting and building long-term relations between businesses and clients. Its services are available in traditional and digital channels. Armatis plans to employ 250 people in the new office.
– The choice of Gdansk as our new location in Poland is a result of our detailed analysis which showed that the potential of the local market is in many aspects consistent with our global strategy – says Krzysztof Lewiński, Country Manager (CEO), Armatis Polska. – The Tri-City market can provide us with additional pool of candidates who are indispensable for us to deliver our key multilingual projects. The standard of offices in which we carry out our assignments is one of the most important criteria for our employees. This explains why we have selected Skanska Wave, concludes Krzysztof Lewiński.
– Wave is gradually filling up with tenants. For us it is not only a proof that offices’ role is still important, but also a confirmation that Gdańsk Oliwa and Tri-City are a perfect location for business development. The last edition of our research has shown that 9 in 10 employees pay attention to the quality of the office when choosing an employer. This is a valuable piece of information also for our business partners who want to expand or build new teams – says Eliza Jamrozik, Leasing Manager at Skanska commercial development business unit in CEE.
– Armatis approached the process of selecting their location very carefully. The target office had to be situated in a place that is accessible to as many potential employees as possible, as well as provide flexible development opportunities. The whole Tri-City was taken into consideration, but the Wave building responded best to Armatis' needs. The choice of Class A building with high quality office space will help Armatis to build brand awareness in Tri-City – says Adam Schroeder, Regional Head Northern Poland at Cushman & Wakefield.
Short distance and comfort
Located in Gdańsk Oliwa, Wave delivered 25,000 sqm of innovative and sustainable office space to the local market. The building is perfectly connected with all parts of Tri-City thanks to an extensive network of bus and streetcar connections and its close proximity to an local railway (SKM) station. The building is also friendly to lovers of the most sustainable means of transport: cycling. They can use 442 parking spaces, special lockers, showers, and repair stations. Next to the office building there is also a shared mobility center, City Hub. It is a space where everyone can rent electric mopeds, scooters, and cars.
Easy to use, safe, and sustainable
The office building was the first in Tri-City to receive the prestigious WELL Core & Shell distinction at the Gold level. It also has LEED Core & Shell certificates and WELL Health Safety Rating. This is the best confirmation that during the design of the building, great emphasis was placed on the highest standards to ensure mental and physical health of office staff as well as numerous solutions to reduce carbon footprint.
Wave uses energy that is produced from renewable sources only. It is equipped with devices that allow saving electricity and water. Moreover, it was created with recycled materials and FSC-certified wood. Around the complex, you can see a specially designed walkway that absorbs harmful nitrogen oxides (NOx) emitted primarily by surrounding road transport.
