Marta Wybrańska, Leasing Director, Avestus Real Estate, said: “We are very pleased that EY, one of the most recognisable companies in the world, has joined Imagine tenants.

Signing a contract with EY is all the more valuable for us as the company is going to move to Imagine from another office in Łódź. This shows that the location at the intersection of Piłsudskiego and Śmigłego-Rydza Avenues is appreciated by companies that create excellent conditions for the development of both their business and their personnel.”

We have offices around the world, and in Poland we do not focus only on Warsaw, but we are also present in other cities, including Łódź. We attach great importance to the workplace of our specialists. Our new Łódź headquarters is a place that facilitates creative and inspiring work, and also has a very good location.”
