Shopping in office buildings

The unemployment rate is low and employers are competing to acquire talented staff. A staff-friendly office is now a motivational element for potential staff. A derivative of this trend is an increase and diversification in retail and service outlets in office buildings, both on the ground floors (cafés, restaurants, stores) and on higher (fitness clubs, medical centres, canteens), and lower levels (car washes, laundries). Warsaw’s office market has been developing rapidly since the 1990s – currently, almost 530,000 people work in approximately 500 modern office buildings in the city, spending often more than eight hours a day in them. According to the results of the study conducted by Colliers International experts in February/ March 2018, as many as 60% of office buildings in Warsaw offer retail and service outlets space – nearly 1,200 units with a total area of 332,000 m².
