Telecom operator Orange Romania has rented eight floors in the first building of Green Court Bucharest, the class A office project developed by Skanska, occupying 13,700 square meters. In the new location, Orange will have over 1,500 employees. The relocation will start this fall, so that the building’s occupancy rate will reach 90 percent.
The transaction was mediated by BNP Paribas.
The first building of Green Court Bucharest is nearly completed, and works are under way on the second building, which should be delivered in the second half of 2015.
”The relocation of Orange Romania in Green Court Bucharest represents an important vote of confidence in our project and I am glad we can collaborate with one of the largest companies on the Romanian market,” said Marcin Lapinski, president Skanska Property Romania.
”I am glad that our offices will soon move in the building developed by Skanska in the Barbu Vacarescu area. Our employees will have meeting and socializing spaces, open space offices and numerous facilities that will encourage the exchange of ideas and collaboration between the teams,” said Jean-Francois Fallacher, CEO Orange Romania. Green Court Bucharest is a class A office project which offers a total space of 52,000 square meters in three buildings, each with 12 stories, three levels of underground parking, parking and facilities for bikers and inner yard with Wi-Fi.
Skanska Group has 57,000 employees in selected home markets in Europe, the US and Latin America. Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, and listed on the Stockholm Stock Exchange, its revenues in 2012 totaled SEK 132 billion (EUR 15.8 billion).
