The Chapman Taylor-designed J8 Office Park, a new, high-specification and sustainable office development, is under construction in Bucharest

The developer, Portland Trust, has just announced that the project will host the headquarters of gaming industry leader Ubisoft, which has leased 60% of the space available in two buildings.

The 78,400m2 GBA scheme, formerly known as Fabrica de Paine, 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.

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 Excellent 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.

With excellent connections to the airport and the city centre, the project, designed for Portland Trust, offers an excellent proposition for companies in the financial, insurance, IT and other service sectors.
