The company will inaugurate the first amphitheatre within an office building, a high-tech lobby and an urban garden.
Bucharest, 1 July 2021 – SkyTower, the tallest office building in Romania is starting the renovation and reconversion works of three common utility spaces in the building, including a Convention Centre with a unique multifunctional medium-size amphitheatre with a capacity of 60 seats.
As employees are gradually returning to the office, SkyTower management is starting the high-tech modernisation works of the main lobby, the reconversion of the mezzanine terraced space into a Convention Centre with an amphitheatre and the re-design of the green space into an urban garden. The refurbishment projects will be finished in autumn.
We are constantly focused on the needs and requirements of our tenants towards functionality, comfort and sustainability provided by our building. These three major refurbishment projects are just a part of this focus. In addition, we have recently installed free chargers for our tenants’ electrical cars, and we have obtained the LEED Platinum Certification and the COVID-Compliant Certification for our building. The well-being of our tenants is our permanent concern and we are committed to creating for a space for them that fosters and stimulates cooperation, creativity and business innovation,
said Leo Forstner, Managing Director of RPHI Romania – the company that owns and manages SkyTower.
One of Sky Tower’s goals is to transform the outdoor area connected to the esplanade in front of the tower into an urban garden that will offer employees and visitors, a relaxing space for daily breaks and social networking. The garden re-design works involve creating many seating areas with ergonomic furniture pieces, installing pergolas and new diversified greenery on a total area of about 800 square metres.
At the same time, the main lobby of the 37-storey building will be completely transformed into a welcoming modern space with a high-tech focus.
The Convention Centre of SkyTower will have access from the main lobby and will go all the way up to the first floor. The total space of around 450 square metres will be split in 3 event areas: a multifunctional amphitheatre of 60 seats, an open-space lounge area with a bar and a meeting room. The Convention Centre will mainly be dedicated to tenants, but can also host external events.
SkyTower is the tallest building in Romania and the most iconic office building of Bucharest. The tower has 37 floors reaching a height of 137 meters above ground and 60 meters of underground structure, hosting 5 floors of parking and storage spaces. All working spaces within SkyTower have natural lighting and the upper floors benefit from high-speed elevators reaching a maximum speed of 6 meters per second. SkyTower is the first and currently only building in Romanian certified with LEED Platinum for Building Operations & Maintenance.
Since its completion in December 2012, SkyTower has become a city landmark, reshaping the skyline of the new CBD in northern Bucharest, and boosting the development of new business projects in the Floreasca-Aurel Vlaicu area.
