EXPO Business Park in Bucharest named “Project of the Year” at the CIJ Romania Awards

The Chapman Taylor-designed Expo Business Park in Bucharest has won three CIJ Romania Awards, including the Grand Prix award for “Project of the Year”.

The state-of-the-art office scheme was named “Best Office Lease of the Year” (for the 19,000m2 ING Bank lease of the nine-floor Building C) and “Best Bucharest Standalone Office Development”.

The 70,600m² GBA Expo Business Park development comprises three separate and self-contained office buildings set over a shared two-level basement parking structure.

The urban scale creates a context-appropriate transition zone between low-level residential villas to the south and east and the larger-scale buildings in the RomExpo area, such as the UniCredit Tower and the new Swissôtel tower. The buildings are set in a landscaped environment designed to create semi-public spaces with an attractive and relaxing atmosphere.

The scheme is located to the north-west of Bucharest city centre, with a metro station only four minutes’ walk away and a tram stop next to the site. It also benefits from its proximity to the city’s largest park, Regele Mihai I. The design targeted a sustainability rating of BREEAM Excellent through innovative building systems and renewable energy sources.

Chapman Taylor designed Expo Business Park for developers Portland Trust, ARES Management LP and Bluehouse Capital. Congratulations on these well-deserved awards to our clients, as well as to main contractor Bog'Art for winning in the "Best Contractor" category.
