Press release

Chopin Airport City - prestige for business

Polish Airports will, for the second time, present its Chopin Airport City project at the prestigious MIPIM International Real Estate Trade Show in Cannes.

(Virtual Press Office) Launched in 2009 by Polish Airports, the operator of Warsaw Chopin Airport, Chopin Airport City is the first project of its kind to be developed in Poland. In the next ten years, the 22.5 hectares of land near the airport's passenger terminal will be transformed into a business park, combining the idea of a commercially viable development of the area and a creative approach to public space functions. Chopin Airport City will boast 17 A-class office buildings, surrounded by a park with water features and paths. A unique place open to the business community, passengers, tourists and the local residents, Chopin Airport City will meet the highest quality standards and the needs of the most demanding business customers.

The construction of Chopin Airport City is planned to begin in 2014, but preparatory works have already commenced. Thanks to the opening of a new rail link between the airport and the city centre in June 2012, it will only take 25 minutes to get to the business park from downtown Warsaw. The project also involves the development of hotel infrastructure, with two new hotels – a five-star Marriott Renaissance and a two-star economy Hampton by Hilton – planned to open by the end of 2013, Chopin Airport's existing four-star Courtyard by Marriot, which tops the European ranking of the brand's best hotels. In total, already in 2013 Chopin Airport City will be able to offer its guests as many as 500 rooms and 20 conference rooms.

By the end of 2013, Polish Airports plans to establish a holding company, Chopin Airport City S.A., which will take over the work on the project. 'This will enable us to pursue investment projects on our own or in cooperation with our business partners,' said Michał Marzec, General Director of Polish Airports. 'We are also working on a detailed area development plan and an optimum time schedule for the project, which will help us present it to our prospective investors, making the talks easier'.

The Chopin Airport City project will be showcased at the MIPIM show in Cannes as part of the Capital City of Warsaw's stand (Lerins Hall, LR4.02), offering Polish Airports an excellent opportunity to present it to a large number of potential business partners: developers and representatives of real estate investment funds. It is hoped that their industry expertise and knowledge of the office buildings market, as well as the capital potential, will facilitate active involvement in the management of the project, its development and implementation.
