Penta Real Estate sells the BCT 2 office building in Košice, Slovakia

Penta Real Estate completed the successful Business Centrum Tesla 2 office building project in Košice by selling it to the Austrian company European City Estates. The BCT 2 provides 14,600 sqm of office space. The largest tenants include the companies T-Systems Slovakia, Deloitte, Diebold-Nixdorf and Colonnade. On the seller side, transaction was advised by JLL, a real estate-consulting company, and the purchase price was not disclosed upon agreement between the parties.

After the completion of the upcoming construction of BCT 3, this project will also be sold to ECE. A building permit has already been issued for the BCT 3, and the start of construction is planned for next spring. The total leasable area of BCT 3 will be 15,500 sqm.

“BCT 2 is one of our most successful office projects. Demand for it’s modern premises has been so high, that the building was almost fully let since it’s opening. We are pleased that this property will be part of the portfolio of such an important investor – for us, it is a good testimony that we implement quality projects that are interesting for investors from both commercial and technical view,” said Juraj Nevolník, CEO of Penta Real Estate Slovakia.

“Our decision to invest in Košice was driven by the outstanding quality of BCT 2 as an office building and the very positive sentiment we have about the Košice region in general and especially the office market there. We appreciate also the very professional transaction management by Penta Real Estate Slovakia,” said Dejan Mansfeld-Rupnik, Member of the Board at ECE European City Estates Group.

“In the capitals of Central Europe, we currently see a strong competition among investors during bidding processes. It forces investors to look for interesting opportunities beyond the usual areas. With the exception of Polish regional cities, where foreign and even institutional capital is present, the decision of investors to direct capital into office sector in regional cities in Central Europe is relatively rare. Therefore, those who are able to properly assess investment potential and are not burdened with prejudices can benefit from less competition and higher returns on their investment,” added Rudolf Nemec, Capital Markets JLL Slovakia.
