Offices now with hairdressers and gyms

POLAND Colliers International has published a study on the retail units in the capital’s office buildings.

Office workers were questioned about their expectations and about the quality of the retail services in their workplaces. “The trends that are changing work spaces and the business environment will intensify, which is going to stimulate demand for office space and improve the quality of developments. A by-product of this is that the number of retail units in office buildings is increasing and they are diversifying,” says Katarzyna Michnikowska, an associate director at Colliers International. “Canteens are not enough. Today’s office buildings not only include a wide range of eating options with cafés, grocery stores and newsstands, but also fitness clubs, medical centres, car washes and dry cleaners.” Only 30 pct of respondents were happy with the stores and services at their workplace. Despite catering being fairly well-developed in office buildings, a large group of respondents wanted canteens with simple food at affordable prices. The amenities that the respondents most frequently stated that they wanted were fitness clubs and grocery stores. They also want a wider range of health and beauty salons – the women wanted pharmacies and drugstores and the men wanted barbers. The respondents also wanted better access to clothing stores. Over half (60 pct) of the office buildings in Warsaw include some retail and service space, although 80 pct have a retail area of less than 2,000 sqm. Most buildings only have space fora maximum of ten retail units.
