Construction progressing well at Bucharest’s J8 Office Park

New images show construction progressing well at Bucharest’s J8 Office Park, despite the ongoing state of emergency due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

The 78,400m2 GBA J8 Office Park scheme will be located in Bucharest’s 1st District, in the densely residential north of the city, and will comprise two separate and self-contained, eight-floor office buildings set over a shared two-level basement parking structure. The buildings will be set in a beautiful landscaped environment designed to create semi-public spaces of human scale with an attractive and relaxing atmosphere.

The offices will have U-shaped floorplans, with centrally positioned, double-height entrance lobbies facing the shared landscaped zone between the buildings. The floorplates are flexible and can be sub-divided to provide four tenancies per floor, if required.

A number of amenities, such as retail units, restaurants and a gym, will provide convenient services for the everyday needs of office staff and local residents and also create an active frontage and a more vibrant streetscape.

The development is targeting a BREEAM Outstanding rating for sustainability; it will be energy-efficient, reducing running costs and maintenance charges, and will be built using recycled and responsibly sourced materials. The high-quality landscaping and well-lit parking garages will ensure a welcoming and safe environment for all users.

Chapman Taylor designed this high-specification and sustainable new office development on behalf of Portland Trust. The project will host the headquarters of gaming industry leader Ubisoft, which has leased 60% of the space available in the two buildings.
