Attractive landscaped surroundings

The J8 Office Park office development is located in Bucharest’s 1st District, in the north of the city - a high-density residential area. The 78,400m2 GBA project comprises two separate and self-contained, eight-floor office buildings set over a shared two-level basement parking structure. The buildings are set in a beautifully landscaped environment designed to create semi-public spaces of human scale with an attractive and relaxing atmosphere.

A vibrant streetscape

The buildings have U-shaped floorplans, with centrally positioned, double-height entrance lobbies facing the common landscaped zone between the two buildings. The floorplates are flexible and are capable of easy sub-division to allow for multiple tenancies, with the ability to create four tenancies per floor, if required.

In-house amenities such as restaurants, retail units and a gym, provide a convenient service for the everyday needs of office staff and local residents while creating an active frontage and a more vibrant streetscape.

Welcoming, safe and sustainable

The development has a BREEAM Outstanding rating for sustainability – it is energy-efficient and has a low carbon footprint, reducing running costs and maintenance charges, and is built using recycled and responsibly sourced materials wherever possible. High-quality landscaping and well-lit parking garages ensure a welcoming and safe environment for all users.

Superb strategic location

The site has an excellent strategic location near two of Bucharest’s main radial roads and is served by the Jiului metro station and a route 24 tram stop, as well as being near a number of bus routes. With excellent connections to the airport and the city centre, the office scheme is very attractive to companies in the financial, insurance, IT and other service sectors.
