Skanska to take 200Km2 of green office space in CEE
Skanska Commercial Development Europe, the Swedish investor and developer of green office buildings, is set to add 200,000 m² of office space in the SEE region within the next two years.
It has previously invested € 400 million in green office buildings in the region and currently has 180,000 m² of new office space under construction.
The green office sector has been progressively growing in CEE regions, with Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania and Hungary enjoying heavy investment, which analysts say bodes well for further development in the sector.
Nicklas Lindberg, President of Skanska Commercial Development Europe, said: “Central and Eastern Europe is a region with great potential. We have already invested over € 400 million here and we’re planning further investments totalling € 100 million in the next two years.
“As we finance the projects on our own, we have the comfort of making independent decisions, and for that reason we have been able for instance to enter the Romanian market. We are also pleased that the “green” way of thinking is becoming strongly anchored in this part of Europe”
Skanska has been instrumental in laying the foundations of this developing sector with its buildings reflecting the ethos of many modern businesses. Green offices are now in demand and have seen substantial interest from potential business tenants across Europe.
Skanska is currently completing major projects all over Europe in areas such as Cracow, Wrocław, Łódź, Warsaw, Poznań and Malta.
