Globalworth has signed an agreement with eMAG, CEE’s e-commerce shopping destination, to set up its headquarters in the state-of-the-art building Globalworth Square in Bucharest.
The newly signed deal is slated as one of the largest lease contracts so far this year in the office real estate landscape in Romania. The space made available to eMAG is 10,000 sqm and will benefit from the fit-out extended service provided by Globalworth`s Workplaces division.
The building is part of the Globalworth District in the north of the capital and has a total leasable area of 29,000 sqm, spread over 3 underground levels, ground floor and 15 upper floors, plus 1 tech level, with a typical floor plan of 2,130 sqm.
After the conclusion of the new agreement between eMAG and Globalworth, the building has reached 100 percent occupancy.
“eMAG is one of the biggest players in the e-commerce sector and a company that has unlocked so many business verticals from grocery delivery and food delivery from restaurants to a marketplace for selling used phones. To be welcoming them into our business community is an inspiration on so many levels. Looking forward to this exciting new period together, a time to foster growth for our prominent new partner,” said Ema Iftimie, Head of Leasing at Globalworth Romania.
“eMAG has grown at a fast pace during the past years entering a new stage of development. We want what is best for our colleagues and based on their opinions voiced through our internal surveys, we know this is a desired change. We are happy to establish our head office in such a state-of-the-art building that embeds high sustainability standards. We will continue our journey and our hybrid way of working in a welcoming space that people find inspiring and enjoy working in. The new space will accede premium fit-out solutions to reflect our personality and way of doing amazing projects,” added Cosmin Dodoc, VP of People and Organization at eMAG.
