The 1st phase of the @Expo project is to this day 60% leased, a new tenant contract has just been signed with Securitas.  The remaining spaces are in negotiations underway with reputable tenants to rent out. Furthermore, for the 2nd phase, initial discussions with blue-chip tenants for the office tower are progressing, with the potential to lease half of the tower.


The @Expo project is based on the latest energy efficiency and sustainable best practices. The first phase has already been awarded the coveted BREEAM “Outstanding” certification, and the ongoing second phase is on track to achieve the same recognition. Implementing cutting-edge technologies  has enabled a remarkable 20% savings in operating costs comparing with buildings with standard HVAC system, while significantly enhancing occupant comfort. Additionally, the entire project will be aligned with the EU Taxonomy standards, further emphasising its eco-friendly approach. Furthermore, the WELL certification guarantees a superior level of well-being and safety for the occupants.

The @Expo project represents the pinnacle of energy efficiency and occupant comfort in Romania. Notably, it achieves significant savings of at least €1 per m² in utility costs compared to other office projects. A study demonstrating these remarkable aspects will soon be released.” said Viorel Lacatus, Country Manager of Atenor Romania.
