EcoPoint expansion in Košice

The EcoPoint administrative office building in Košice is set to expand. The seat of IT, Hi-tech companies, medical labs and assisted reproduction facilities, will double its current rentable area, Trend Reality wrote.

 

The building was finished at the beginning of 2014 and is now fully occupied. Another two buildings are to be added to the current 5,000 square metres of rentable office space bringing the total area to 10,000 square metres. The construction works of the second phase will begin this May and new leaseholders should be moving in by 2018.

Košice suffers from an acute deficiency of new and quality buildings which provide comfortable office working space. The EcoPoint building delivers this high quality and delivers it as a standard,” said Miroslav Cimerman, the consultant of CBRE Slovakia which manages the rental of the building, as reported by Trend Reality.

Other similar projects are planned for the business centre in the surroundings of the EcoPoint building but it stands apart from these because it is an ecological, sustainable building with low operating costs. It is the greenest administrative building in Slovakia with an LEED Gold certificate, according to the administrator of the building.

The complex stands at the entrance to Košice from the direction of Prešov and Michalovce, in the middle of two big housing estates: Dargovských hrdinov and Ťahanovce. The location of such a building near a city bypass is preferred by many countries in developed Europe, however it was still unknown in Košice,” said Miroslav Cimerman. Trend Reality informed that there will be a total of 400 parking places.
