Map Location

A welcoming courtyard

Located in the city’s Sector 4 at Calea Serban Voda, the 45,000m2 GBA building provides Class A workspace across eight above-ground floors, with retail space at the ground floor and two basement levels for parking and services. A pleasant, landscaped courtyard welcomes visitors and occupants to the spacious reception lobby at ground floor level.

Relaxing terraces and roof garden

The façade design makes use of natural stone and aluminium composites to give an urban downtown feel, with wide upper-level terraces and a roof garden creating attractive spaces in which the building’s users can relax and interact.

Excellent location

U Centre is located close to the city’s Tineretului and Carol parks, making it perfectly placed for pleasant lunchtime strolls and post-work socialising. A metro station 100 metres away from the building provides easy access to the rest of the city.

LEED Platinum-certified

The development has been designed to the highest levels of sustainability specification.
