Most popular shopping platform in Poland, Allegro, has leased nearly 16,200 sqm at the Norblin Factory in Warsaw. The tenant was represented during its negotiations with the Capital Park Group by global real estate advisory firm Cresa. The interior of the new office was designed by a Warsaw-based architectural studio The Design Group.
Allegro is growing at an unprecedented pace, with upwards of 20 million visitors to its website every month, making it Poland’s most favorite shopping destination. Last year, it registered a 40 percent of rise in online offers, and sees a new business account opened every five minutes. To accommodate its rapid growth and expansion of its team, Allegro will need to upsize its offices in several locations across Poland. It is headquartered in Poznań, with regional offices in Warsaw, Toruń, Wrocław, and Krakow. Allegro has 2,100 professionals, of whom 640 are based in Warsaw.
Allegro’s new office will occupy five floors in building B of the mixed-use Norblin Factory. The company will move in stages from the Q22 office building to the Norblin Factory, starting from July 2021.
“Allegro needed a bigger office due to dynamic development of its team. The company started the relocation process two years before the lease expiry, which gave us plenty of time to carefully review offers and to tailor lease conditions to the client’s needs. Key elements for Allegro were: a well-connected location, a large floor area, space availability in the second half of next year and numerous amenities for employees. The Norblin Factory met all requirements of Allegro. The building offers superior services and a range of facilities for a comfortable work experience every day,” Artur Sutor, Partner, Head of the Office Department at Cresa Poland, said.
