West Gate business park owned by Genesis Property has prolonged the lease of office space with Ericsson Romania for another 5 years. West Gate offices host one of the four global Ericsson Global Service Centers (GSC), with about 1,900 employees serving 24/7 over 200 million customers in 20 countries around the globe.
Ericsson Romania has been present in West Gate offices since 2008 when it leased 3.500 sqm and continued to grow continuously, currently occupying 15,500 sqm.
“We mark the beginning of 2019 with an extension of the contract with one of the most important tenants on the Romanian office market – Ericsson. Our company thus achieves another contractual record for 16 consecutive years, with a multinational of such size. From the very beginning, our efforts have been directed towards improving the lives of office workers. This directly influences their increase in performance and adds value to the company’s employer brand. We will continue to invest in the steady development of our services by focusing on delivering memorable experiences to tenant employees,” says Liviu Tudor, president and founder of Genesis Property.
Currently, the West Gate office park offers a wide range of services and facilities to the business community (consisting of over 10,000 employees and students): a four star accommodation, a medical center, three dedicated car parks a multi-level parking lot with 600 seats, a 170-seat parking lot and a 180-seat campus parking), a restaurant, a supermarket, five cafes, a car wash, a clothes cleaner, a fitness room, outdoor grass relaxation areas and outdoor swimming pool with roller and rollerblading track.
“In 10 years, the space occupied by Ericsson has increased 5 times – from 3,500 sqm in 2008 to 15,500 sqm in 2018. During this time, we have succeeded in consolidating the company’s offices in a single West Gate building (which deals entirely), contributing to making leased space more efficient and ensuring the continuity of Ericsson’s global services center. We will continue with this tenant in all stages of the development of his business, with optimal solutions to solve any requirement, regardless of its complexity. The extension of this contract is another confirmation for us that our service standards are able to rise to the highest level in the industry,” adds Stefan Tudos, vice president of Genesis Property.
At the beginning of September 2018, following an investment of EUR 1.5 million, the only outdoor rollerblading and running runway outside the West Gate opened in an office park in Romania.
Among West Gate companies are Ericsson, Societe Generale European Business Services, Siemens, WNS, Citi, Accenture, Panasonic, Alpha Bank, Carestream Health and Medicover.
