WARSAW-The Texas-based developer Hines has broken ground on one of the largest commercial developments currently under way in the Polish capital. The Metropolitan complex next to the National Opera House on Pilsudski Square will provide 345,000 sf of office space and 45,000 sf of retail space, with 410 car spaces in three linked buildings. Completion is expected in Summer 2003.

The three buildings can be leased vertically or horizontally, offering maximum flexibility for potential users. And the 50,000-sf floor plates are among the largest available in the Warsaw marketplace.

The design by Lord Foster and Warsaw-based JEMS Architekci reflects the style of Warsaw’s modern architecture, with rounded corners and granite cladding. And at the same time it sets out to recreate the original streetscape before the destruction of the city during the second world war.

The $110 million Metropolitan project has been financed by the Emerging Markets Fund, HypoVereinsbank Bank Hipoteczny and Bayerische Hypo-und Vereinsbank.
