The completion of this transaction is even more satisfying for us, as in the years 2015-2017, we also represented the owner in the re-commercialization of the Crown Square building. Our full knowledge of the project, from acquisition to commercialization, enabled us to complete the transaction at an express rate of two months” - said Agnieszka Stankiewicz, Partner of Greenberg Traurig.

Meanwhile, the secondary market is also doing very well, the best example of which is Crown Square, a fully-leased building with the highest distinctions confirming its functionality in the field of sustainable development, and which is also perfectly connected with other districts of Warsaw. We are glad that we were able to represent the IREEF Fund in this prestigious transaction” - added Jolanta Nowakowska-Zimoch, Greenberg Traurig Partner and Head of Real Estate Practice in Poland.
