HireRight to stay in Silesia Star

One of the global leaders in background screening services - HireRight, has extended its lease in the Silesia Star office building in Katowice, Poland. 

Since 2016, HireRight’s main office in Poland has been in building A of the Silesia Star complex in Katowice. The company has decided to stay in the Globalworth-owned office building and has extended its 3,200 sqm lease. The tenant was represented by CBRE in the negotiations.     

Our Katowice office is a central hub for many of our teams in Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA). The location is convenient and well-connected, close to a number of universities that we work with to recruit new graduates. Its position in central Europe is also key, as it helps us to support our global customers in the region. This lease extension gives us stability for the future growth of our team in Poland, all under one roof. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Globalworth over the next five years” says Steve Girdler, Managing Director of EMEA & APAC at HireRight.

HireRight has been operating in Poland since 2003. It is one of the world’s largest providers of background screening services, helping organisations limit their risks when hiring new employees by checking and verifying information provided by their job applicants.

Right from the beginning, Silesia Star has proven of particular interest to innovative companies from the technology, finance and business service sectors. Such firms occupy 95% of the space of our office building. It has a creative working environment, a superb location in the centre of the city and a unique architectural style and these are just some of the benefits that our centre has to offer. This is what our tenants appreciate and that is why, despite the huge range of office space on the market in Katowice, they choose to stay with Globalworth – which in this case means in Silesia Star” says Julie Archambault, Senior Leasing Manager at Globalworth Poland.

Silesia Star has been part of the Globalworth portfolio since July 2019, when the company purchased the office building from LC Corp (Develia). It is one of the most interesting office buildings in Katowice, having been designed by the renowned architectural studio of Kuryłowicz & Associates. The complex comprises two eight-storey buildings in the very centre of Katowice on ul. Uniwersytecka, near the Drogowa Trasa Średnicowa motorway, the city’s Culture Zone and the University of Silesia. 

With its location, the centre has excellent communication links with the entire city due to a well-developed road network and public transportation system. The tenants also have nearly 200 parking spaces at their disposal in an underground car park as well as additional c. 250 ones on the ground floor and in the very close neighborhood translating into an exceptional parking ratio in Katowice’s office market.
