Legacy Tower is and office complex, built in Warsaw's Wola district at the
intersection of Prosta and Żelazna Streets.
The building were designed by
architects of Chicago’s Goettsch Partners studio in collaboration with their
Polish partner – Warsaw’s Epstein design office. Warbud was the general
contractor of the investment, and Golub GetHouse and Mennica Polska were the
of the complex the two building were built – the eastern one with 33 floors and
a height of 140 meters, and the lower 10-story western building. The lower of
the office buildings was commissioned in November 2019, while the higher one in
complex offers 65,630 square meters of office space and 4,500 square meters of
retail and service space. On the roofs of both of the skyscrapers the green
terraces were designed.
largest lease agreement in the history of the Polish real estate market was
signed at Mennica Legacy Tower - mBank has leased almost the entire usable
space of the taller skyscraper and will occupy over 45,000 Square meters of
space. The lower building was entirely leased by WeWork.
peak of the construction works the construction of one storey took only six
days. This dizzying pace of the construction was achieved, inter alia, thanks
to the usage of specially designed facade systems. During the construction of
the Mennica Legacy Tower, a mullion-transom element wall system intended for
the construction of lightweight curtain walls of a suspended type was used. The
wall structure consisted of modules entirely manufactured in the manufacturing
plant. The height of the modules corresponded exactly with the height of the
storeys to which they were to be installed and their width was determined in
accordance with the architectural design. Thanks to the appropriate
differentiation of the shapes of aluminum profiles and the glazing technology
of the façade segments, it was possible to obtain various visual effects on
individual facades of the building. Finally, a panel windows were installed in
the system to allow fresh air to flow into the building's rooms. For
the needs of the façade construction on the lowest floors of both buildings,
the Mennica Legacy Tower complex uses a system whose load-bearing structure
consists of aluminum sections and transoms as well as composite profiles,
closing the housing at the top and bottom. The glazed façade system was designed by Aluprof from
Bielsko-Biała in cooperation with Eljako-Al.
Lagacy Tower office buildings were equipped with lots of the modern systems
incl. access control integrated with the elevator management system, lighting
and air conditioning control from a mobile phone and concierge service. The
employees can use the four-storey underground car park with 620 parking spaces
for cars and 300 for bicycles. The parking also includes electric car charging

Waliców Street was reconstructed on the section between Prosta and Pereca
Streets. Between the two buildings a city passage connecting Prosta and
Grzybowska streets as well as a square with elements of small architecture and
greenery were developed.
