About Sky Tower
The tallest office tower in Romania (137 meters and 37 floors) is developed by Raiffeisen Property International, which owns commercial properties in 13 countries in the region and has successfully implemented 30 standard projects on the European office space market.
A lesser known aspect of Sky Tower, beyond the investments in the image and premium quality of the spaces, is that the developer paid particular attention to the practical side and financial comfort of future tenants. Thus, “energy consumption will be low, as evidenced by the certification received from two specialized institutions, LEED and EVERYONE, and the air conditioning system is designed at the maximum partitioning density of the space and not the minimum, as in the case of most of the buildings are even of the latest generation, an advantage is the air conditioning system with 100% fresh air supply, regardless of the number of partitions. Basically, in Sky Tower was taken into account the scenario of partitioning the space in the smallest possible way, creating rooms of approx. 15-17 sqm and equipped with air intake and extraction units. This translates for the tenant in the almost complete elimination of the costs of adaptation / additional air conditioning, costs that represent an essential amount in the total fit-out investment in a new building “, declare the representatives of the company that developed Sky Tower.
The surfaces available for rent are flexible, being between 300 sqm and 30,000 sqm.
The location is also excellent. Sky Tower is located in the Barbu-Vacarescu area, the new business district of Bucharest, with complete transport infrastructure for metro, bus, tram. Sky Tower is located near the Aurel Vlaicu metro station and the future Promenada Mall, which will be used in October this year.
