BREEAM Outstanding office development

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

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.

Expo Business Park won three CIJ Romania Awards in December 2019 - 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”.

Relaxing and attractive

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 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.

Expo Business Park is the first new office development in Bucharest to achieve BREEAM Outstanding accreditation for sustainability, doing so for all three buildings. Chapman Taylor designed the project for developers Portland Trust, ARES Management LP and Bluehouse Capital.
