The first stage of the Centrum Południe office complex developed by Skanska is gaining another tenant. ANEGIS, a company specializing in digital business transformation using Microsoft technological solutions will open its office there on the area of 750 sqm. The new tenants will move into the building in November 2022. The contract means that this phase of Skanska's flagship investment in Wrocław is already 80% leased.
Centrum Południe is a multi-stage project that sets new standards in terms of sustainable solutions implemented in office buildings. The investment has obtained, among others the WELL Core & Shell certificate at the Gold level, which confirms that the investor focused on thermal and acoustic comfort, health and the needs of the building users. This is the first such certification in the capital of Lower Silesia. The investment also holds a LEED Platinum certificate, which assesses the building in terms of its impact on the natural environment. Now the employees of another tenant - ANEGIS - will be able to use the highest-quality, sustainable office space.
- It is a great honor for us that a company that places so much emphasis on providing comfort to its employees, chose Centrum Południe as its new headquarters. This confirms that the solutions implemented in the building have a significant impact on the health of people working there. This is not only about the shape of the floor, which allows natural light to illuminate 95% of the office space, but also about the air quality and acoustic parameters that will be met by the new ANEGIS office - says Aleksandra Kalina-Tacik, Leasing Manager at Skanska’s commercial development business unit in CEE.

Due to its dynamic development, ANEGIS partners with consultants and programmers from the Dynamics 365 area. New employees will be working from the ANEGIS office in Centrum Południe (area: 750 sqm). The opening is scheduled for November 2022.
- The key value of ANEGIS are people. The core of the team consists of people with unique competences on the IT market, world experts in their fields. Our goal was to create conditions at the headquarters in Wrocław that would ensure the maximum comfort of work for the ANEGIS team. That is why we decided to move our small office located in the Wrocław market square to a modern, well-designed space that meets the highest safety standards. We wanted every ANEGIS employee to have their own personalized space that would provide them with the same comfort of work that they would find in London or New York - says Krzysztof Langner, CSO of ANEGIS.
- We have the opportunity to observe how dynamically the office market is developing. After all, the environmental aspect and sustainable construction are not an additional feature but a top priority. It is no secret that office tenants put enormous pressure on developers in terms of sustainable construction, reducing their carbon footprint and creating a space that is safe and inspiring for tenants and their employees. We are very pleased that ANEGIS will be able to create a functional and comfortable space from where to continue its business in the innovative and safe spaces of the Centrum Południe building. We had the great pleasure of advising the tenant on this transaction and we believe that it was a very valuable process for all parties involved - says Aleksandra Stanisz, consultant in the office space department at JLL.
Green light for green solutions
Centrum Południe was designed in accordance with the ESG (Environmental, Social, Corporate Governance) standards, as evidenced by the pro-environmental solutions found there. The building uses LED lighting, chilled beams and free-cooling system - thanks to which it consumes up to 1/3 less electricity, contributing to reducing the carbon footprint. Electricity comes exclusively from renewable sources and is produced by wind farms. The buildings contain technologies that allow to reuse gray and rainwater, thus generating significant water consumption savings.
The pavements around the first phase of the complex were made of concrete that purifies the air from harmful substances, such as nitrogen oxide. Mainly regional products are used in the construction of Centrum Południe. Finishing materials, such as paints, adhesives or sealants, were selected so that they do not contain hazardous volatile organic compounds. Green areas around the office buildings are cultivated without the use of harmful pesticides and herbicides.
Phase II is coming soon
The building in the second stage of Centrum Południe has recently reached its target height. Its completion is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2022. It will provide 21,500 sqm of modern and sustainable office space to the Wrocław market, enriched with interesting solutions, such as terraces or loggias with an area of up to 40 sqm. Between the buildings there will be, among other things, a public basketball court.
