ASTRIS, a modern class A office building in Cracow which will be handed over for use in a few weeks, will be managed by international consultancy Knight Frank. The ASTRIS company is the investor.

The property developed in the business centre of Cracow next to the Polsad roundabout will deliver some 13,000 sq m of modern office space as well as a carpark for 160 cars and 70 parking lots for bikes.


- We chose Knight Frank, a consultancy renowned on the market, to manage our building. The company has some 100 properties under management throughout entire Poland. I am convinced that such tremendous experience will make the property function swiftly and lead to great cooperation with the tenants. – said Jarosław Betka who coordinates the investment on behalf of the Astris company.

- We are pleased that yet another investor trusted our experience in property management. The Astris office building will join the ranks of ‘green’ properties managed by Knight Frank. The expansion of our portfolio with a such high quality building will surely strengthen the company’s position in Cracow. - commented Aneta Rogowicz-Gała, Head of Property Management at Knight Frank.


The company currently manages properties in Cracow with a total area of ca. 100,000 sq m. 

The investment was designed in line with the requirements of sustainable construction. The property is currently being LEED certified. The property is expected to receive a Gold level certificate. The certification process grades the suitable selection of materials, technical solutions as well as particular practices and construction standards implemented during the development of properties in line with sustainable construction requirements.
 
- The ASTRIS building in Cracow is an investment which from the very beginning was designed as an example of sustainable real estate. For a very long we have been pointing out the importance of green buildings and pro-ecological certificates. It is a great opportunity to make full use of our knowledge and long experience. The property perfectly fits the philosophy of supporting passive real estate. – added Magdalena Oksańska, Head of Property Management Compliance at Knight Frank.
