Spektrum Tower, an A-class landmark office tower, located in Warsaw Central Business District at 18 Twarda street, was sold by Europa Capital to Globalworth, the leading office investor in Central and Eastern Europe, for around €101 million.

The occupiers include international firms from a variety of sectors, e.g. BuroHappold, Ecovadis, BGŻ BNP Paribas, Westwing and Calzedonia. Numerous tenants have already expanded within the building, and the average lease term is approximately 5 years. The property offers diversified facilities, including one of the largest gyms in Warsaw (CityFit), a medical centre and two restaurants.
James Pennington, Director, Asset Management at Europa Capital, comments the disposal: “We are proud to be selling the high quality Spektrum Tower to Globalworth after completing a transformational refurbishment. We have had no tenant departures under our ownership highlighting the high standard of the refurbishment. This sale concludes Europa Capital’s central European investment activity for Europa Fund III.”

Thanks to the acquisition of Spektrum Tower, the value of our Polish portfolio now exceeds €1.0 billion and reaches 375,000 square meters of GLA almost.”
Michał Ćwikliński, Managing Partner, Country Head Poland at Apleona GVA, adds: „We are very pleased with the successful closing of such a landmark transaction. Spektrum Tower is a good example of a prime asset, well-refurbished, offering strong ‘core +’ returns, with best location in the capital city and excellent value for money for the tenants, especially in regard to the falling vacancy level in Warsaw city centre.”
