Vastint Poland has signed an agreement with C.Hartwig Gdynia S.A., a leading freight forwarder operating on the domestic and international markets. The tenant has leased 2,562 m2 in the newly built K2 office building on Kielecka Street in Gdynia. The company plans to open the headquarters in the new location, where its local offices will be consolidated. The tenant was represented in the negotiations by the consulting agency JLL.

“The K2 office building, located near Wzgórze św. Maksymiliana (the Hill of St. Maksymilian) node is the newest office investment in Gdynia. A convenient location right next to the SKM station, proximity to the centre and, therefore, services and shopping centres are just some of the advantages of this spot. The employees will surely appreciate the convenient location of their new headquarters as well as the high standard of the building itself. From the northern corners on the upper floors of the building, one can admire the panorama of Gdynia and the view of the Bay of Gdansk,” said Maciej Kandybowicz, Leasing Manager, Vastint Poland.

“From the very beginning, it was clear to us that the company’s headquarters should remain in Gdynia. Additionally, we were looking for a place that would allow us to create a comfortable and healthy work environment. The K2 office building meets both requirements. The efficient layout of the floors will allow us to prepare an arrangement of office space that will fit in with the current, post-pandemic trends in the style of work and meet the expectations of our team,” said Andrzej Hass, Financial Director of C.Hartwig Gdynia SA.

“The Tri-City office market is approaching the level of one million square meters, which shows that it is an attractive location for thriving businesses. It is distinguished by a great variety of offers due to the different characters of Gdansk, Gdynia, and Sopot. In addition to access to the extensive business infrastructure in the Tri-City, the high quality of life and the level of satisfaction of the inhabitants of this region are of paramount importance. Gdynia’s port-like, rather intimate atmosphere is its great advantage, and the modern K2 office building offers comfortable conditions to create a friendly working environment. For C.Hartwig, a company operating on the international market but based in Gdynia, it is an optimal proposition for creating an ideal office. The location of the project on the main artery of the city connecting it with the rest of the Tri-City as well as near the SKM station, among other amenities, was also a significant factor in favour of choosing K2,” said Marcin Faleńczyk, Director of the JLL Regional Office in the Tri-City.

The six-storey H-shaped building offers office tenants over 11,000 m2 of usable space with a comfortable lobby and a two-storey garage with 136 parking spaces and infrastructure for cyclists. Gdynia’s modernism was the inspiration for the architecture of the office building designed by APA Wojciechowski. The shape of the regularly spaced on the façade white vertical panels is a reference to sails and ship architecture present in Gdynia in the 1930s. Completion of construction work and commissioning of the office building is scheduled for the second quarter of this year.
