BUCHAREST | Floreasca City Sky Tower | 137m | 37 fl | Com





Raiffeisen evolution (RE) develops a multi-functional centre with a shopping and entertainment complex as well as two office buildings in Bucharest.

Floreasca City Center (FCC) consists of a centre for shopping, entertainment and business. The gross area amounts to approx. 214.000 m² with rentable area of approx. 120.000 m² and more than 2.000 parking places.

The shopping and entertainment centre has a gross floor area of approx. 110,000 m² and is divided into 3 basement floors with approx. 1,300 parking spaces and 3 upper floors with sales areas (ground floor and 1st upper floor) as well as a food court and a cinema center in the 2nd upper floor.

The „Office Wing“, an office building with 7 floors and a polygonal ground plan (gross floor area approx. 26,000 m²) floats above the shopping mall. This structure features a transparent light glass façade. In the floor connecting the structure with the mall, there is a fitness centre which has a direct exit to the generous open space on the roof of the shopping mall.

The second office building is designed as a high-rise building (Tower) with a height of 131 m. With 37 upper floors and 5 basement floors (gross floor area approx. 78,000 m²), this Tower will be the highest building in Bucharest. A restaurant and conference rooms are situated in the two uppermost floors. The façade of the Tower has an oblong structure over 4 floors with transparent, translucent and opaque areas. In the uppermost floors the façade opens up and becomes entirely transparent.

That's pretty major for Bucharest, not to mention Romania. A big change from wide parliament buildings with a dozen or so stories.

Indeed, it looks awesome but there are some other biggest project in Bucharest. See, for instance, ESPLANADA, BUCHAREST`S MANHATTAN, SEMA PARK, CITY GATE, NEO PARK, ASMITA GARDEN, NEOPENINSULA, NEORESIDENCE, BUCHAREST TOWER CENTER, CEFIN TOWER, GEMINI TWIN TOWERS and many many other projects presented in EE/BALKANS thread.

No doubt, Bucharest will kick ass soon !

* If you are in Vienna, 23 to 25 May, you can visit REAL VIENNA (EUROPEAN REAL ESTATE BUSSINES FAIR) where ROMANIA have many things to show you ! You will find informations about the romanian real estate boom and its actual projects in the following locations:

Checking the webcam, I`ve seen a crane on the left, on the other side of the street. What is happening there ? Do you know if there are other important projects in the same area ?

Nice one Bucharest! At least it shows Romania has moved well on since the communist buildings of the Ceausescu era.

Thanks Sbz2ifc ! This building is only 7 floors ! I hope that we will have soon some other important project in that area. Floreasca City Center deserve more than solitude !

-----------------------------

I really lik the design of Floreasca City Center! I think that we have in Bucharest 2 nice buildindg with a similar facade : Charles de Gaulle Plaza & America House - designed by Vladimir Arsene from Westfourth Arhitecture. Do you know who was the architect for Floreasca City Center ?

Anyway, it seems that Floreasca City Center also is a steel construction and the facade combine some ingredient from Charles de Gaulle Plaza & America House`S facades. That`s great !
