About UBC 3 and Openville Timişoara
The construction works for UBC 3 started this June, the estimated completion date being of approximately 12 months. This is the third of the seven office buildings designed for the mixed-use project in Timişoara. With a gross leasable area upwards of 130,000 sqm, the office component of the Openville project is set to become a regional business hub.
UBC 3 will span on approximately 18,000 sqm and 14 floors, with the semi-basement and ground floor spaces being reserved for retail use. The building will be LEED certified, its characteristics including vast areas without interior columns on each floor adding up to 2,000 sqm and fitted with full glass façade which allows for enhanced levels of natural lighting. UBC 3 will stand out owning to its location in the immediate vicinity of the park spanning on 55,000 sqm to be fitted within Openville. The building will benefit from two main access ways, one of which will be on the same level as the park to be fitted over the underground parking facility of the project. Therefore, the people working in UBC 3 will be able to enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of the green spaces and to benefit from immediate access to the cafés and restaurants fitted outdoors.
