The developer plans to buy there a new office complex located in the northern area of the capital, in the immediate vicinity of the Jiului subway station.
“The acquisition of a new land is a natural step in the sustainable development of our business. The new property meets all the criteria we are pursuing in this process and, more than that, it is an important milestone: with this land, we will be present in three different submarkets in the capital, ” says Aurelia Luca, Managing Director, Skanska Property Romania.
The office complex that Skanska will develop in the Bucurestii Noi includes three buildings, to be designed and built following the concept “futureproof workplaces”, implemented by the company at regional level.

On the adjacent land, of approximately 26,000 square meters, InteRo Property Development SRL will complete the complex developed by Skanska with four other buildings. The seven buildings will together form a unitary complex.
