Silesia Star is a new investment project of DEVELIA SA located along the Uniwersytecka Street in Katowice. The first stage of the project included building an eight-storey office building with an underground garage and a separate commercial and service part thereof. The first tenants moved into the new offices in January 2015. The office building is located in the city centre in an excellent location directly at the expressway connecting the cities of the Silesian Aglomeration, the University of Silesia, and the Silesian Museum.
The building provides comfortable conditions for business activity, offers high-standard offices, and additional services such as a restaurant and a café, commercial and service outlets, and a parking. Silesia Star stands out with its architectural design which is modern and simple. The external façade is made of concrete, perforated with openable windows of different sizes and a contrasting golden colour. The façade materials are subordinated to the simplicity and the nature of the location, referring to the austerity of industrial buildings and the tradition of the Katowice's modernism.
The project covered providing an eight-storey office building in the first stage. In the second stage, which is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2016, a sister building is to be erected. The leasable area is 12,980 m2 in the first stage and 12,400 m2 in the second. In addition, the ground floor will include commercial spaces with an area 1,040 m2 in the first stage and 1,100 m2 in the second stage.
