The “European Trade Center” on Tsarigradsko Shose Blvd. is expected to be completed in 2010. The project gained incredible fame when it was first started in 2006 for the use of the so-called “green technologies” in the construction. This approach was then said to increase the energy efficiency of the complex and to optimize the overall functions of the space.
The total investment is estimated at 70 million euro. The construction works are executed by the international “Terna” and Bulgarian building companies.
According to the investors, about 60 % of Sofia’s construction and engineering force and resources are currently involved in the development. They reminded that 14 heavy-duty freight lifts/cranes are being used at the moment.
This data and the most recent information about the completed stages of the development were announced yesterday by the investors on a press conference.
The construction works started in the winter of 2006, right next to the new Carrefour hypermarket. The whole complex will include five buildings with class A office premises and will offer a total area of 60 000 sq.m. The first block (A) will be facing the boulevard and will be the tallest office building in Bulgaria. The complex will include modern innovative and high-tech solutions in order to meet clients’ needs for energy, cost and functional optimization of the commercial estates. It will also have a total of 830 parking spots.
