According to the Business Environment Assessment Study, Szczecin has joined the group of eight cities in Poland most often indicated by potential foreign investors. The city owes its high evaluation of the investment potential, in particular, to the proximity of Germany and the Scandinavian countries, access to the European motorway network, a high percentage of people running a business and the pro-market attitude of the inhabitants, as well as the quality of available office space.
The fact that the city has great investment potential is evidenced by the dynamically developing BPO sector, consisting of 43 outsourcing service centers. Thanks to the developers' efforts, especially in the last year, the city is also undergoing major changes in terms of office infrastructure. The long-awaited investments will provide 23,000 sqm of office space in 2020. In 2021, thanks to the commissioning of Hanza Tower, the tallest apartment and commercial building in Szczecin, the city's office infrastructure will increase by another 3,000 sqm, while the total office, conference, service, retail and recreational space will amount to 11,000 sqm. The tower will also house 480 apartments. There is a car park for 403 cars and 120 bicycles on three underground floors. The total area of the building is over 54,000 sqm.
"Szczecin – the capital and the largest city of the West Pomeranian Voivodeship, is a city with a strategic location. Three international airports, one in Szczecin and two in Berlin, are only 1.5 hours away by car. Only 12 km from the German border, 140 km to Berlin, 380 km to Copenhagen Soon, the exclusive retail and service complex in the Hanza Tower building will become an attraction for foreign clients, as well as businessmen and investors who will establish their offices here,” Małgorzata Ostrowska, Marketing and Sales Director at JW Construction, said.
