Take a look around the recently completed BREEAM Outstanding EXPO Business Park in Bucharest

New images show the recently completed, highly sustainable EXPO Business Park office complex in Bucharest, designed by Chapman Taylor.

The 70,600m² GBA was developed by developers Portland Trust, ARES Management LP and Bluehouse Capital, and comprises of 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 project was planned to the highest environmental standards, incorporating innovative building systems and renewable energy sources. It is the first new office development in Bucharest to achieve BREEAM Outstanding accreditation for sustainability, doing so for all three buildings.

The development won three 2019 CIJ Romania Awards: The Grand Prix award for “Project of the Year”, “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”.
