Podium Park is a modern complex of three office buildings located in an attractive location in the direct vicinity of the center of Kraków. The project is being developed at the junction of al. Jana Pawła II and ul. Izydora Stella-Sawickiego streets, next to the Kraków University of Technology, University of Physical Education, Technology Park and Tauron Arena. The location guarantees access to numerous facilities such as recreation areas, the Lotników Polskich Park, sports complexes and shopping centers. In addition, the site has direct access to city transport and very good connections with Kraków’s most important districts and business centers throughout Poland are ensured.
“The Podium Park is being developed in harmony with the environment and will be an office building friendly to the environment, its tenants and all users. We are happy that we can celebrate the topping out of the highest storey of the building and thus completion of this key stage of the project. The work is progressing exceptionally efficiently and we are convinced that next year we will deliver one of the most interesting office buildings in the map of Kraków. We would like to thank Fabet – Konstrukcje Sp. z o.o. for timely and reliable execution of construction works” – says Wojciech Dobrzański, Podium Investment CEO.
The project has obtained the prestigious international BREEAM certificate at the Outstanding level for the “Design Stage”. The project has received one of the highest ratings in Europe in the office building category according to the latest certification criteria.
The building will feature above-the-standard solutions regarding, among others, environmental protection and bicycle infrastructure, e.g.: rental of electric cars, scooters and bicycles, 36 electric vehicle charging terminals (the most in Poland), 310 bicycle stands, 27 showers, 294 biker lockers and mobile bicycle repair station.
In addition, the project will offer green areas with the total area of 5,000 square meters, including two green courtyards which will provide a perfect place for active rest and relaxation.

The office building will use state-of-the-art technologies supporting work comfort of all employees. The noise level in the offices will be limited to 40 dB and, thanks to the modern air-conditioning system, there will be up to 50% more air in the building than required by the Polish standards.
