In Q1 2024 no new office project was delivered, and this year will record the lowest level of delivered office spaces, namely 16,000 sqm within the AFI Loft Project.

Although in 2024 a period of lull in the development of office buildings in Bucharest is foreseen, companies that are considering changing or expanding their headquarters have extensive areas in high-class office buildings already in use and have office spaces available.

Relocation opportunities in 2024

A special opportunity for companies evaluating relocation in 2024 is represented by the existence of “turnkey” office spaces, fully furnished, which are available for rent either from rental companies that have surplus areas or directly from the owners of the office buildings.

ESOP’s portfolio includes, in addition to office buildings for rent in Bucharest, office spaces for sale in Bucharest, industrial parks and warehouses for rent, as well as office spaces for rent in the main cities of the country.
