Gdański Business Center is a modern complex consisting of four class A office buildings in the centre of Warsaw. The project was completed in 2014 (phase 1) and 2016 (phase 2). Apart from the office space, the complex also features restaurants, a café, a beauty salon, a kindergarten, a medical centre, the Zdrofit fitness club, and a public courtyard with greenery and street furniture elements. Gdański Business Center offers 1,379 underground and 76 on-grade parking spots and biking infrastructure, with 416 bicycle racks, changing rooms and showers. The tenants of the complex include Provident Polska, KPMG, Allianz, Philip Morris, Euronet, KMD, Uber, Nielsen, and Dell.

The complex is located next to the Dworzec Gdański M1 metro stop and the Warszawa Gdańska railway station. There are also many bus and tram stops as well as city bike rental points near the project, which guarantees excellent transport options to other districts of Warsaw. The proximity of the Gdański Bridge also facilitates access to the right bank of Warsaw. There are numerous amenities in the vicinity of the complex, e.g. the Westfield Arkadia shopping mall.

The property, which was awarded a BREEAM Excellent certificate, was purchased by Savills IM on behalf of a global pension fund.
