University Business Park is also distinguished by its excellent location in the center of Łódź, at a distance from the busiest traffic arteries and two convenient entrances to the complex from four directions, which allows smooth and easy access to the buildings by car from different parts of the city. The complex also provides quick and convenient access to other means of transport. There are several bus and streetcar lines in the vicinity of University Business Park, and a cycle path along Wólczańska Street is also planned. Within a few minutes' walk from the buildings there is Piotrkowska Street with numerous restaurants, cafes and services, as well as the Łódź University of Technology, with nearly 20,000 students, mainly from technical faculties. The complex is located only 7 minutes by car from Łódź Fabryczna railway station and about 15 minutes from the Władysław Reymont Airport.

As GTC, we are convinced that cooperation with such an experienced advisory company as Colliers, will result in our office complex being fully commercialized and increasing in value, says Grzegorz Boczek, GTC Poland Head of Office Leasing.

2020 was one of the most successful years in the history of the office market in Łódź in terms of demand.
