Brama Miasta

Since launching in 2015, Onwelo has opened 9 offices in Europe and the USA. The company employs over 700 people and has cooperated with such technological giants as Google Cloud, Microsoft and UiPath. Onwelo specialists deal with such areas as development, maintenance and testing of software, delivery of products and services based on cloud technologies or creating solutions in the field of Data & Analytics and Intelligent Automation, which improves business processes. This is another recent tenant from the IT industry moving into office buildings designed by Skanska 


– The rapid development of the IT industry means having to look for new spaces where employees will feel good and comfortable, and which provide the best working conditions and further business growth – says Monika Tkacz, Senior Leasing Manager at Skanska’s commercial development business unit in CEE. – Brama Miasta, in addition to such spaces, also offers sustainable technologies that reduce the building's impact on the environment, as well as an excellent location, right next to the Łódź Fabryczna train station. This is definitely a good location for a new office – adds Monika Tkacz. 


– The Onwelo office in Lodz is a response to the needs of our employees from the city and the surrounding area on one hand, and to the company's development plans on the other. When looking for locations for our offices in different places, we always take into account similar aspects. Convenient access and communication with various parts of the city, the space of the office itself, which allows you to feel at ease, energy efficiency of the building and high functional standards, as well as a representative aspect. We found all this at Brama Miasta and, to be honest, we can't wait for the official opening – says Piotr Kowalski, Executive Director at Onwelo and supervisor of the company's Lodz branch. 


Great location and additional attractions 


Brama Miasta has already become a permanent part of the business landscape of the city and an icon of the New Center of Lodz. The building attracts attention immediately after leaving the Łódź Fabryczna railway station, next to which it was built. This is due, among others, to the corten steel facade, which refers to the history of Lodz and its industrial character. 


The building offers a total of 40,800 sqm of futureproof office and service space, built in accordance with ESG requirements. Employees of the office building, residents of Lodz and guests can use the public patio with amphitheater stairs. It is close to the Grand Theatre, Stefan Jaracz Theatre, EC1 Science and Technology Centre and one of the most famous streets in Poland – Piotrkowska. 


Brama Miasta, as an integral part of Lodz and a place open to all, hosts various types of events. Recently, a series of lectures for seniors called the Academy of Silver Maturity has started here. This year, several other meetings are planned, thanks to which this place will also be alive after 17:00.
