After attending, organizing or promoting forums, panels, debates, exhibitions for several years, where a lot of leaders – advisors, managers, developers, investors pleaded for the necessity of a remarkable, integrated, supportive, dedicated market and country promotion, and also after numerous discussions in Munich, Vienna, Warsaw, Cannes, Budapest, etc., where senior figures of the market were surprised to hear about landmark projects or cities revived and asking more information, we decided to rebrand and to reposition this unique investment – market guide for Romania. So, this is it, the 7th edition: “Romania’s Real Estate Yearbook 2020”, the most comprehensive guide for a country in CEE; use it, promote it, support it if you consider it valuable. Of course, a part of the market players went back to their offices and are still waiting an extraterrestrial invasion to make Romania famous and great again, or at least for a government, national agency, municipality or their competition to underline their evolution or strategies. Luckily for them, the other half, with significant experience, exposure and results in more markets, and bonus, some regional players and rising stars, understand that is part of the strategic business model to promote also the market, city or region and to support initiatives that offer

potential clients or investors key information to generate future business opportunities, in a fiercely regional competition in Europe or in the world. So it is with great pride, that we thank our partners in editing this guide for 2020 and each of the managers of the projects or businesses you will find inside, for their trust, and gladly invite you to discover, as the tradition goes on since 2013, new investments and opportunities or key market contacts. Hopefully, the information inside will inspire future leads and trades, proving that the country has potential, besides the other not always happy news from other industries, people in real estate deserve more recognition after several years of ground breaking transformation due to their work. Now, a few trends in the market: larger and multifunctional projects, more of them mixed-use schemes, put on paper or in place; logistics accelerating to reduce the gap of stock when compared to the other countries region, maybe faster than other segments; bravely – extensive residential projects with some amenities or intelligent features integrated, closer to new business hubs or new submarkets; significant interest and developments in the regional cities including more retail and residential; numerous land transactions and some extra connectivity by train to Bucharest

Henri Coanda International Airport, and the main railway station in the capital, which might revive the projects in the areas. A more strong voice from an industry association and the enthusiasm generated by the matches at Euro 2020 in Bucharest, might be the cherry on the cake, just to overcome two sets of elections and bring more focus for 2021. In between, some lights shining hopefully on Timisoara – as European Capital of Culture, after this year a joint venture inaugurated there a mixed-use development which estimates as much traffic yearly as Romania’s population, Iasi might have two “mini – mighty” business & lifestyle districts, Cluj Napoca is racing to be more vibrant, festive and smart than Bucharest, but also more expensive, Constanta is attracting new bets, and other cities strive to be industrial or logistics hubs, plus touristic attractions: Oradea, Sibiu, Brasov, etc. Last but not least, invitations and special news: how about a networking & party event with all of you, where to meet and understand better your business needs, generate ideas? And, also, dedicated chapters in this guide for landmark projects, retreats, inspirational and transformational experiences offered by investments in residential, retail, HoReCa, in the 2021 edition? Feel free to write or call for ideas and feedback during the year!

TRENDS

ROMANIA IS A COUNTRY OF QUALITY Romania is a profitable business destination, ensuring competitive return on investment rates, standing as an undeniably reliable partner for profitoriented worldwide entrepreneurs to take upon. Hence, some of the biggest players in the world found here a spot on the global investment map for turning opportunities into success stories. Romania continues to have a sustainable economic growth, registering a 5.0% GDP increase in Q1 2019, as against Q1 2018. At a European level, according to Eurostat, Romania ranked 2nd in the EU, with a 5.1% GDP growth in Q1 2019, compared to Q4 2018. Continuing the upward trends of the recent years, Romania ranked 10th in terms of FDI new projects implemented (148) in 2018, according to the fDi report “Global greenfield investment trends, Financial Times 2019”. In 2018 the FDI value went up by 3.98% against 2017, amounting EUR 4,988 million against EUR 4,797 million, and the inward FDI for the first 6 months of 2019 went up by 30.2%, amounting EUR 2,322 against EUR 1,783 million in the same period of 2018, according to the National Bank of Romania. 16% corporate tax, 19% VAT – standard VAT rate, 0% income tax for employees in IT&C and R&D, 0% tax on reinvested 20

profit on companies investing in new technological equipment, 0% income tax for the employee, reduced from 16% starting with January 1st 2018 are just a few of the reasons why Romania has such a competitive taxation. There are also other significant fiscal incentives offered by the Romanian government, like: a 9% VAT for supply of food, including beverages (excluding alcoholic beverages), a 5% VAT for tourism sector exemption on land, building and urban planning tax for investments implemented in industrial, scientific or technological park, 5% dividend tax rate and 0% for EU shareholders, exemption

on the property transfer tax for assets valued at maximum RON 450,000 (EUR 100,000), and a 3% rate for the difference exceeding the limit. In terms of gross minimum wage in economy, Romania ranks third in the EU, with minimum monthly gross wage of RON 2,080 (~EUR 446) and RON 2,350 (~EUR 504) for employees with higher education and at least one year expertise in the field of higher education. With over 400,000 university students at the country level and about 100,000 graduates every year, over 50% of them are majoring in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math), especially, in Computer Science, Engineering, Telecommunications, Biology, Mathematics and Chemistry. In fact, there are more engineers/capita in Romania than in India, China, USA or Russia but also plenty of economists, medical professionals and law graduates for building successful businesses. In recent years, the economy started shifting from a labor intensive, lower cost one to higher value added investments. For example, Bosch opened an R&D center for the automotive industry in Cluj, where Porsche also set up a center for autonomous vehicles. The energy industry is also growing, for example Clariant invested in Craiova together with GETEC. “Today Romania is a Country of Quality that has succeeded in moving forward the value chain, as investors that entered the market over fifteen years ago with basic manufacturing are now branching out into more technologically advanced projects. Through an excellent expertise, InvestRomania is offering worldwide companies a wide range of investorfocused and result-oriented services, in full confidentiality, trust and utter commitment, for making Romania their primary destination of choice in EU. All investors have to do is knock at our door and let us do the job for them!”, states Paula Pîrvănescu, Secretary of State at InvestRomania.

Fulga Dinu - Country Manager Operations IMMOFINANZ Romania

myhive, THE ADDRESS FOR BUSINESS REFINED “The market is evolving and trends have changed in all segments, focus has shifted to the needs of the people, developers, and investors need to create their product having this in mind”, Fulga Dinu, Country Manager Operations, IMMOFINANZ Romania. More investments and innovations are ongoing, to strengthen the company’s position in the top three commercial real estate players on the Romanian market. Which milestones in the evolution of Immofinanz in Romania determined in your opinion the current market status of the company and its success so far? In 2004 we placed our first investment in Romania. Ever since that time IMMOFINANZ strengthened its position as one of the leading commercial real estate players in Romania based on its strategy of concentrating on its office and retail portfolio and the development of its brands - myhive for offices, VIVO! for shopping centers and STOP SHOP for retail parks. An important milestone in the evolution of IMMOFINANZ in Romania was definitely the launch of myhive brand on the local market in 2017. The brand’s success relies on its hotel-inspired design, the wide range of provided services and the valuable community it creates among its tenants. With this concept we are pioneers on the Romanian market. We already have 22

three myhive buildings in Bucharest and we have recently started a refurbishment process for another two buildings in Bucharest. The feedback from our tenants is very good and this is reflected in the high occupancy rate of myhive buildings. How do you characterize the current status of the market in Romania and in relation to other countries in the region? Romania had a steady growth of roughly 3% since 2013. The economic growth rates place Romania on the map for foreign investors, as the country is becoming a driver in the region. For example, the transaction volume on the real estate investment market continues to enlarge and it is distributed throughout the three sectors: office, retail and logistics properties. Moreover, we see in all our CEE markets good GDP growth, accompanied by decreasing unemployment and increasing purchase power.

What have you seen changing more recently, which are the main challenges for 2019/2020? Recently I have noticed a healthiness and structure of the market given by the experienced developers that understand the ingredients of this business and are activating on the market. This automatically leads to a good product that is immediately targeted by longterm investors. A note worth mentioning is the fact that more and more local developers and investors appear and this proves the trust in the Romanian market. The market is evolving and trends have changed in all segments, focus has shifted to the needs of the people, developers, and investors need to create their product having this in mind. Romania still offers very attractive yields, with a gap of over 2% compared to our neighboring countries. This provides huge opportunities in the medium term for the current investors when the yield compression will kick in. How do the structure and the functions of an office park are being transformed to better serve the tenants/client’s needs? As the place where an employee spends most part of the day, the office environment has become a very important parameter of everyday life and it has to respond to various important requests and wishes of the people. Nowadays office buildings or office parks have to offer much more than simple work spaces and this is also IMMOFINANZ’s major focus. A good example is IRIDE, our office park where we have an existing myhive building and will bring to existence another two. With the myhive experience, we are constantly striving to be up to date to the constantly changing needs and requests of our clients. I believe that myhive is the concept of the future for the office and it sets the trends in the office segment. There are four pillars that define myhive concept: contemporary design, attentive service, lively infrastructure and active communication. Every day, myhive tenants are friendly greeted at the welcome desk, in a warm and pleasant atmosphere. This is all enhanced by several service offers and support from the myhive Community Managers, as well as an exclusive lounge. In the WWW.TRANSILVANIABUSINESS.RO

same time, great value is placed on networking among tenants. Our myhive Community Manager takes care of organizing educational, sports or leisure events as well as fairs and workshops that contribute to creating a very strong community among the tenants. What type of investments is IMMOFINANZ currently implementing for this objective? We are constantly investing in the quality of our portfolio and in the rollout of our three brands and services. As previously mentioned, in Romania we have already started a refurbishment process for two office buildings that will be re-opened next year under the myhive concept. Also regarding our retail properties, we are currently in a modernization process at VIVO! Cluj in order to accommodate new and attractive brands and offer an improved shopping experience for our customers. At IMMOFINANZ Group level, we have two important acquisitions in the office segment in Warsaw and Prague, more precisely two high quality properties Warsaw Spire Tower (71,600 sqm) in the Polish capital city and Palmovka Open Park (26,000 sqm) in Prague. In the retail segment, we have already gained our position as leading operator of retail parks in Europe. Our STOP SHOP branded retail parks currently cover 81 locations in nine countries. In 2019, we will grow our retail park portfolio to about 90 locations and the overall goal is to reach more than 100 locations.

what our customers wish, especially on retail and office areas. The digital world has become essential given the fact that a normal person spends a lot of time online, and the reality is that people can work remote or buy online, if they want. This definitely involves a major shift of mentality which means to focus primarily on the end-consumer; our consumers’ wishes moved from providing a product to offering a service or an experience. And this is what we do at IMMOFINANZ: we don´t only offer a location, but a service which includes social events as well as even watering your plants, if you happen to be a tenant in one of our myhive offices. Which are your objectives for 2019/2020, how do you see the evolution of IMMOFINANZ in Romania? The strategy of IMMOFINANZ is to further keep developing its office and retail portfolio as well as strengthen its position in the top three commercial real estate players on the Romanian market. On the office segment we will continue to make significant investments to provide best-in-class properties and services to our clients. In the retail segment, we have further plans to improve the experience in our VIVO! shopping centers.

How about key priorities, recommendations for the business and public sector to maintain a competitive market and attractive products in the region? The real estate market remains an everchanging environment. In the office area, as the labor market is increasingly competitive, companies are more and more focused not only on attracting but also on keeping the valuable tenants and employees, and office spaces play a crucial part in this. Landlords have to invest in sustainable buildings with modern design and provide diverse services to fulfill the tenants’ needs and also contribute to their general wellbeing. This is also our major focus. With the myhive experience, we are constantly striving to be up to date to the constantly changing needs and requests of our clients. In the retail domain, due to a very high-paced contemporary way of life, it is crucial to offer people in the shopping centers a 360˚experience, respectively focus on good quality experiences supplemented by leisure places, children playgrounds, and family areas. And last but not least it is very important to stress the fact that we are very grateful to the communities where we are active and consequently it is essential to have a good co-operation with the local authorities and actively support the communities in any way we can.

Do you see technology disrupting in a fast pace the business models of your tenants and partners, can you forecast a few trends due to the impact of tech and IT&C related innovations? As technology and digital world rapidly expand beyond the IT departments, they fundamentally change the way we communicate, learn or interact both professionally and personally. In real estate, the challenge is to understand 23

Andreea Paun, managing partner, Griffes

GOING NATIONWIDE FOR THE DEALS OF THE FUTURE Griffes is the most active agency covering very well the capital, secondary and tertiary cities. What do developers and tenants want, which are the attractive sub markets, rising regional stars and types of investment to bet on? Andreea Paun, managing partner Griffes, reveals strategic trends in the office market. How did new products and features influenced the market transformation in the last years? Do you feel that clients/ tenants experience a new generation of office buildings, what are they looking for now? On one hand, developers, through their constant thrive to improve their products are shaping the market and engage occupiers in transforming and upgrading their premises. Developers are not only delivering a building but are working on delivering spaces set for creating communities and the feeling of belonging. On the other hand, for employees, the working environment (including location, interior design, type of areas inside and outside the office space etc.) became an important criterion when selecting a company to work for. Thus, the combination of the two is moving the 24

market forward. Nowadays, tenants are looking for projects that can offer their employees accessibility, amenities and high technical specifications, all being equally important. As a confirmation, 50% of the market activity of the first half of 2019 was represented by relocations, showing the need for an upgrade of office premises. What is the sentiment when being active both in Bucharest and in the regional market? Which type of products and cities strategies could prove successful in the next few years? Which cities are you betting on? While being active both in Bucharest and regional cities, one can only gain a broader and a sharper image of the entire office market; Griffes is the most active agency covering very well the capital,

secondary and tertiary cities. Although part of the office occupiers in Bucharest have active operations also in regional cities, the local approach in terms of office space requirements might be different. Developers are working on delivering good products in terms of technical specifications but also in terms of facilities and amenities. A successful product that we are witnessing in large regional cities is the mixed-use property, including, besides offices, commercial spaces and residential units – places to work and live. Developers are trying to integrate rich amenities, starting with restaurants, coffee shops, different services, conference/convention center, co-working spaces, sports areas and kindergartens, to maintain life in the community even after office hours. Location and accessibility remain the key driver in the decision making process. As first tier regional cities, we are betting on Cluj-Napoca, Timisoara and Iasi. In the next wave of development, we will see Constanta growing, as a harbor attracting industrial and logistic operators, hence the adjacent activities, while Sibiu and Brasov will follow closely, in terms of tertiary cities. Which industries are now driving the demand/growth and what might change in mid-term, which are the positive arguments for investments in Romania and also the challenging factors? The office demand is still driven by technology intensive industries, followed by the financial sector. Another office demand driver is flexible workspace operators, that increased their presence on the market, especially in Bucharest. High-tech companies will remain the main driver for office space on the midterm. Romania offers some of the most promising business opportunities the CEE, as one of the most competitive and dynamic economies in the European Union. A highly trained labor force that encouraged the creation of innovation and manufacturing hubs, and one of the largest markets in Central and Eastern Europe are attributes that make Romania an attractive destination for investments. On the other hand, one of the biggest challenges that the Romanian office market is facing is related to labor market. Office occupiers, especially those involved in IT and technology related activities are confronted with difficulties in attracting and maintaining highly WWW.TRANSILVANIABUSINESS.RO

qualified work force. These efforts lead to higher wages and allocating budgets for different types of incentives such as better quality of working environment, complex benefits packages relocation packages, among others. The second situation led to increasing demand for quality office buildings and amazing fit out projects, which stand out at European level in terms of creativity and functionality. How would you define Griffes, the expertise and strengths of the team, which are the milestones in your activity so far and the objectives for 2019/2020? Griffes is a creative professional services company. Our main line of expertise is the office segment of the real estate market, with landlord representation and services for owners and developers at our core. We aim to make a difference in the changing landscape of cities throughout Romania, by contributing from the moment of land acquisition, design and build stage to marketing and positioning, leasing process of the building, and ultimately the exit. The team is currently working on 5 major projects across the country, such as: the settling and operation of Unirii View, in Bucharest, a 17,000 sqm office tower now close to 90% leased, the final stages of leasing in Record Park (12,000 sqm) in Cluj-Napoca, the leasing process and repositioning of Vox Technology Park in Timisoara, a new brownfield project to be developed in Sibiu, and early stages of design and strategy for Paltim, our project in Timisoara which successfully started with the sale of a former hat factory to one of our major clients, Speedwell Development and which will turn into a mixed use project on the shore of the

Bega river. The main achievements of the current year for us were marked by the volume of over 15,000 sqm office leasing transactions in secondary cities, which indicate Griffes as the most active and proficient consultant for regional cities and the completion of two significant land transactions, adding up to our portfolio of services the first critical segment of real estate development - site selection and land transactions for large developers. That offers us the full picture of the development cycle, a unique view over the broader puzzle that we hope to capitalize on in the near future. How do the structure and the functions of cities areas influence the evolution of new sub markets – possible hubs, in which areas of Bucharest you still see development potential? Over time, the Bucharest office market has evolved by grouping office developments around certain areas, depending on different criteria, at different times. Initially, Victoriei Square was established as the central point on the office market

due to its location. Subsequently, the developers migrated north, to capitalize on the opportunity of available land plots and proximity to the airport and the residential area in the north of the capital, where demand from multinationals was growing. In the last few years, companies in the IT field have undergone an extraordinary evolution and have represented an increasing proportion of the demand for quality office spaces, so the developers followed them where these companies wanted to be present, near the university centers and sub-markets have been created. The facilities in these areas have multiplied and diversified and thus a cluster creates value through the living organism into which it is transformed. Thus, I am sure that this clustering trend will continue to exist in certain office areas, such as Center West and Baneasa – Expozitiei areas, especially taking into account the development of new metro lines. We see a comeback of the interest for downtown, as the place to be, with transportation, institutions and a better day-to-day life of the employees.

RENAULT BUCHAREST CONNECTED THE NEW HOME OF GROUPE RENAULT ROMANIA DEVELOPED BY GLOBALWORTH In February 2019, Globalworth finalized one of its most ambitious projects - Renault Bucharest Connected (RBC) meant to perfectly fit the specific needs and expectations of our partner, Groupe Renault Romania. The project is a premiere on the Romanian market, receiving two “green” certifications: BREEAM Excellent and EGDE RBC stands proof to Globalworth experience of building solid relationships with some of the largest corporations in the world. RBC benefits from excellent public transportation with easy access to any point in the city (subway, bus), but also close to other entities, which will facilitate the

movement of employees to and from the workplace. Renault Bucharest Connected encompasses the highest energy efficiency standards and is the first EDGE-certified building from the Globalworth portfolio and the first one to be awarded in Romania, certification received from IFC, the World Bank Investment Division. In order to receive this certification, a building has to use 20% less energy and water, which has a positive impact on the environment

as well as on the maintenance costs. Renault Bucharest Connected has been assessed by the EDGE experts as having a 35% lower energy consumption and a 50% water savings. The BREEAM certifications received for the office building and the design center within RBC, in addition to energy efficiency and water use, also consider other criteria, such as: the sustainability of the used materials, energy and waste management during construction process, the degree of pollution generated by the newly constructed building (noxes emissions), but also during the design phase and management process. Renault Bucharest Connected has been developed to deliver low energy consumption and maximum efficiency in the heating, cooling and ventilation of the spaces. For the design phase, the building received a score of 89 out of a maximum of 100. Another notable performance, besides the two green certifications, is that Globalworth team managed to build almost 58,000 square meters of office space, facilities and design center in just 560 days. A distinctive feature of the project are the two generous atria that offer natural brightness in the office spaces, representing both a benefit to the employees’ well-being and a reduction in the maintenance costs. In addition, this is amplified by the glass facade of the building, designed to minimize heat loss in the winter. The project includes 40,000 sqm of A Class office space and an underground floor of 10,000 sqm with approx. 240 parking places to which another 760 outdoor parking places are added. RBC also includes a design center of 8,000 sqm and the employees who will work inside will also benefit of 350-seat conference center. Also, other facilities will be available such as a restaurant, sports area, car showroom and a medical center.

Until now, Amazon has invested approximately €100 million in Romania in developing latest technologies. Opening an office in Bucharest was a great choice because there are many career opportunities within AWS (Amazon Web Services), especially for software engineers specialised in operating and virtualization systems. The second building from the office project, Tower 2 was finalised in April 2018, offering additional 28,000 sqm leased to Stefanini Romania, Mazars Romania, Chain IQ, P4Cards and Dell. Upon completion, Globalworth Campus will comprise three main office towers offering 92,600 sqm of leasable area and 760 parking spaces, along with green areas and a large conference center.

Tower 3 - The latest building to be developed inside Globalworth Campus The building represents the second and final phase of Globalworth Campus project. Tower 3 offers a surface of 33,600sqm of commercial office space and will be finalized by the end of the year. This project will also integrate

one of the largest conference center in Bucharest, developed at the highest market standard, summing 750 seats. Tower 3 building will include 500 parking spaces and will extend over 14 floors above ground and two underground levels; Project is expected to be completed in Q4-2019. Starting with next year, our class A Globalworth Campus offices will host two companies of the Allianz Group: Allianz Services and Allianz Partners as well as UniCredit Services, division of Unicredit Group. Allianz Group is one of the leading integrated financial services providers worldwide and we are happy to welcome them in Tower 3 of Globalworth Campus and to house their operations in Romania on an area of 9,200 sqm.

Globalworth Square - a new Globalworth project to be delivered in the second part of 2020 At the beginning of 2019, Globalworth started the works for Globalworth Square, located in the Barbu Văcărescu area, in Bucharest’s busiest office hub, between Globalworth Plaza and Green Court Complex, both owned by Globalworth. With a total rental surface of approximately 28,400 sqm, the project will include 15 floors of office space, 3 levels for underground parking, and the ground floor will be designed for facilities such as a restaurant and various retail options. Integrating latest technologies within Globalworth buildings is a major priority for us and Globalworth Square will not be an exception in this respect. Strategically speaking, we hope to

actually set a new standard from this point of view, with this project.

Globalworth leading office investor in Poland as well We are very pleased to have been able to acquire some of the most recognisable properties available in the Polish market, which in 2018 included three of the 10 largest office transactions of the year.

GLOBALWORTH DISTRICT. A SENSE OF COMMUNITY. Nowadays, innovation and technology have a great impact on the way we interact with the environment. As the leader on the real estate market, Globalworth considers this as a priority, from integrating innovative technologies in the building process to the way people are interacting with our developed spaces. Also, it is part of our philosophy to focus on a strong Globalworth community, through all our projects. We encourage genuine interaction between all employees who are daily entering our buildings, through the leisure and the additional spaces we are developing, the facilities we are offering and the events we are organizing.

The first „neighborhood� in Romania which brings arts & technology together. Based on this philosophy, Globalworth District came naturally. The concept defines our community of over 100,000 people, most of them sharing common passions and interests. Globalworth District is about community, about people from our buildings, young artists, tech lovers and enthusiasts of new experiences. Globalworth District is a benefit for all employees working in our buildings, offering them access to original cultural events, after the working hours. It is also a benefit for the companies which are part of the Globalworth community. Ensuring a proper work-life balance for the employees is a strong priority for us and we believe that technology does not only increase efficiency but has also a great impact on this balance and helps attracting and keeping, at the same time, the most talented people. Globalworth District is based on three pillars: music, visual arts and fashion, all reinterpreted technology based. We aim to develop, year by year, dedicated editions for each of these pillars. The visitors become more than a spectator, being able to interact with art and to discover it in a new perspective in virtual and augmented reality, for example.

Globalworth District editions so far The first edition, which officially launched Globalworth District took 28

place in February, this year. The event was meant to promote the young artists generation with the help of emerging technologies and to bring cultural events closer to the community by transforming the office buildings into unconventional office spaces hosting and supporting art and technology. The second edition took place in April and was dedicated to a new type of musical experience, with a live concert and two thematic parties, completed by interactive installations and video mapping. One of the novelties was an installation which translated the biodata from plants into music, showing how different forms and sounds can change in relation with external factors. The June edition transformed the Globalworth Green Court complex into the host of a collective street art exhibition and involved famous visual artists like Pisica Patrata, Mircea Popescu, Sweet Damage Crew and George Stanciu. The autumn edition is work in progress and it is dedicated to fashion in the context of technology, as well. We are expecting an increased interest

from the audience, considering that Globalworth District already started to gain positioning in the minds of our community.

And this is just the beginning since the best is yet to come. Next year, Globalworth District will grow a new sense of style, and that implies a connection with the latest trends. Therefore, next year, Globalworth will introduce a new series of collaborations with artists, meant to transform the office life into a great experience. We will continue to bring together through art & tech a community that grows with every individual that joins in with his passion and creativity. Moreover, we are committed to find the best talents from our community and promote them with every project, ensuring their successful launch as young artists. Because Globalworth District is a continuous journey with a great ambition: to build and grow an extraordinary world for tech lovers and art enthusiasts. WWW.TRANSILVANIABUSINESS.RO

Didier Balcaen, Co-Founder and Partner, Speedwell

IT’S ALL ABOUT WELLBEING Didier Balcaen and Jan Demeyere, the founders and partners at Speedwell, are announcing more projects and investments in Romania, boosting ideas and enthusiasm for new generation, rewarding, mixed-use destinations. So far, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca and Timisoara are the key cities, but more opportunities will follow.

How would you define the philosophy behind Speedwell projects in Romania, the market arguments and the opportunities in this region? The founding partners of Speedwell have a wide experience in the Eastern European region, and we have chosen to focus on Romania only because of the dynamics of the real estate industry and of the opportunities that arise out of the stage in which the current market is today. Compared with other countries in the region like Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary or Bulgaria, we have discovered here a mix of factors that makes it for us a proper business environment, in the long term: availability of inner-city land to develop nice projects; economic growth driven by well-educated and hardworking employees; a real demand for quality in terms of design and 30

construction, in the existing offer, both in residential and in the office segments; good return on investment; a beautiful country with cities that grow fast and become attractive for multinational companies, no matter the industry. There aren’t only positive aspects related to the Romanian market, as we all know there is a certain fiscal and legal environment unpredictability. Since real estate projects span at least 5 years, a fixed horizon over the same period is essential. Adding the pluses and minuses, for us it made sense and we are optimistic towards the future, as we have confirmed the development recipes in the projects we have built. What are the benefits of being active both in Bucharest and the regional market? Which are the milestones

reached and the lessons discovered so far? What cities are attracting new projects from Speedwell? Speedwell has developed projects in Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca until now, and recently started a new mixeduse development in Timisoara, the project named Paltim which will replicate in terms of business model the Record Park project from ClujNapoca. Apart from these cities, we are looking at other potential destinations in the future. Our aim is to grow the residential share in our mixed-use developments substantially over the next few years, while offering a Speedwell quality stamp, so both commercial users and residential buyers know that they get good value for money, no matter where in the country they buy or rent. We have learned a lot about our market in the last few years mainly about the focus of the companies to offer a high-quality environment to the employees, the dynamic of the labor market which impacts directly the way office spaces are being planned, and also about the increasingly demanding future residents in search of new homes. Nowadays the access to information makes the real estate market a very transparent environment, in which both the developer and the customer talk the same language. The key is to understand the market, create a differentiated quality product and respect the promises you make towards your customers. Can you explain a few demands and behaviors of occupiers in office and residential buildings? Did you feel changes in recent years, how did you change for the trends to come? The market is continuously changing, which on one hand is a challenge for all of us, but we prefer it this way because the most dynamic companies make a difference. Both tenants in the office buildings and residents as well are more focused on increasing the quality of life, more time for themselves, reduce the commute time between work and home and have most of the services they need in the proximity of their office or home. That’s why we are focused on offering a mixed-use environment combining all services WWW.TRANSILVANIABUSINESS.RO

people need in day-to-day life, so they are less dependent on their cars, which creates a feeling of well-being for all our clients. Also, the technological part is playing an increasingly important role in this. Smart parking solutions in offices and Smart home application in our apartments is something Speedwell is investing in heavily. How are the functions of business & living areas being transformed to better serve the tenants/people needs, what type of characteristics will determine the revival of certain cities? What do you as an investor expect from the local administration? When selecting a plot and designing the master plan, we list the most important functions already present in the area, be it retail, residential or offices. In our development we then focus on offering the functions which are not present yet to complete the mix. It’s what we did in Record Park, with office, residential, retail, a World Class fitness space with pool, a kindergarten, all these elements mixed in a recipe that people enjoy. The jewel of the Record Park is the refurbishment of an old building in which there will be a restaurant and a co-working space. We will have the opportunity to give back to the city a similar building in Paltim (Timisoara), an old monument villa which was in extremely bad shape until now. Also, our Miro (offices) and The Ivy (residential) developments in Bucharest apply the same principle, supplementing the retail function which is already dominantly present

via Baneasa Shopping City. We want our developments to grow the areas in which they are positioned, and therefore we invite the authorities to work with us, because in the end the winning parties are the vibrant communities which are being built inside and around these projects and obviously also the taxes they generate for the local budget. The cities that will win the battle to develop in a positive manner, will be those that aren’t afraid to join forces with developers in being open to implement for instance smart parking solutions together with the developers, so private parking can be integrated in a public parking network in order to use all capacity available and get those cars off the streets to increase the quality of life.

Record Park Cluj-Napoca

Miro Offices Bucharest

Jan Demeyere, Co-Founder and Partner, Speedwell

What is the strategy, what can we expect from Speedwell, for the next few years? Speedwell’s focus remains to be on mixed-use inner-city developments, consisting of offices, (middle to middlehigh) residential and supporting retail/ amenities. Our team has grown to over 30 highly qualified professionals and we still welcome more enthusiasts to strengthen our team, because we have big plans for the future. Apart from our office development branch which will continue at the same pace, we are boosting our residential development via the set-up of a 100 MIO euro equity fund to support our growth. The fund is scheduled to go live in the second half of 2019, hence the search for good plots is on.

Andrei Timofte, CEO of Transilvania Constructii

Transilvania Constructii

EXPANDING TRC PARKS NETWORK AND NOVIS PLAZA Transilvania Constructii is one of the main real estate investors and developers in Romania, being active for over 20 years. The company’s main projects are the A Class office building Novis Plaza from ClujNapoca and the logistical and industrial parks network TRC Parks, which include cities like Cluj-Napoca and Bacau. Andrei Timofte, CEO of Transilvania Constructii, defines the perfomances of the company and its strategy for the foreseeable future. How would you describe your current strategy, the arguments for the recent investments and the company’s position in the market? Recently, we have been expanding a great deal by developing a mixed portfolio that is in a constant ascendant pattern in terms of size and value. Our strategy can be described as a concentrated effort in investing in high yielding developments and properties with a special attention on the industrial sector. Our latest developments are built with a high standard in mind in key locations from Romania. Most of the locations are urban centers that have emerged as inter-modal focal points with great growth potential. With over 95,000 sqm of industrial space and 14,000 sqm of office space, Transilvania Constructii is to be considered a company with a unique blend, formed by combining in a harmonious equilibrium, the

realm of construction and real estate development with that of asset management. With more than 100 clients, I believe that our expertise and experience is the key factor that set us apart from our competition and that helped us achieve excellent results in the last couple of years. What have you seen changing more recently, either within Transilvania Constructii or in your markets? Recently, we have seen the appearance of a significant number of mature clients, that tells us that the market is expanding and is reaching a maturity stage of economic development. Because of this, the need of know-how in the real estate market is becoming increasingly important. In terms of our company, we have expanded our human capital by developing our current employees and adding new professionals into the mix according to our investment needs. What we, as a company take into account when we choose a new investment is its geographic location, the skilled work force and infrastructure. I would like

to mention, that these key factors are not only taken into account by us, but also our competitors. This means that we face the challenge of increased competition on the market. Other challenges are the limitations of the work force availability as well as increased construction cost. In regard to evolution of the regional market in Romania or the competition with other cities in CEE region, how would you characterize Cluj-Napoca? Cluj-Napoca has established itself as the second most important city in Romania after the capital of Bucharest as well as an important regional hub for Transylvania. The economic growth experienced in the last 10 years is due to the steady influx of labor force, the attraction of renowned universities and the openness of local authorities. One of the key features of Cluj-Napoca is the rapid but cautious adoption of new technologies in developing the city. I believe this positive trend will continue in the foreseeable future as long as new infrastructure projects will be implemented and labor availability increases. What are your goals for 2019/2020? What do you aim at developing? How do you see the markets you are active in evolving in the next years? In the following 12 months, we plan to build approx. 30,000 sqm of industrial space and to complete phase 2 of our office building project, Novis Plaza in Cluj-Napoca. I am optimistic that the positive trend in the industrial market in Romania will continue. My view is that rents will increase in prime locations from major cities and yields have the potential to align to the CEE Region. Our primary goal is to maintain a high occupancy rate across our entire property portfolio and to increase our rent roll by approx. 20%. 33

OFFICE DESIGN: MORE ABOUT THE PEOPLE RATHER THAN THE SPACE ITSELF. For more than 15 years, we deliver spaces that enable people to drive innovation and achieve their best performance at work. We create environments that inspire, promote a sense of well-being and reflect our clients’ organisational cultures. We constantly focus on the impact of the space on people’s lives and work, as we understood that the environment can influence ways of working and improve employees’ productivity. A proper office design implies human resources, financial costs and a lot of time. Although it may seem a lot, a proper office design is cheaper than the effects of a dysfunctional design: stress, frustration, inefficiency, unhappy employees. All of these lead eventually to financial losses for the company. Therefore, from the beginning of the project, we conduct preliminary meetings, interviews, focus groups and quizzes, in order to identify what makes people happy at work and which is the company’s vision and goals for the project.

We deliver client engagement solutions, through tailor-made, creative turn-key projects. We already know from experience that one size does not fit all. That’s why, in order to offer to our clients’ employees the right workplace - that engages them, empowers them in their dayto-day work and supports all types of work within the company - we need to identify all the projects’ stakeholders and align everyone’s vision to a bigger unique purpose. That’s how we manage to generate valuable ideas from within our clients’ teams, to keep the associates involved during the entire project and to come up with an interior design project that has real added value for the client. The result is a tailor-made workplace which tells the clients’ stories and makes people feel part of the outcome - which is an important asset for organisations.

MORPHOZA CLUJ-NAPOCA 2A Nicolae Tonitza Street Cluj-Napoca, Cluj

Change management One of the most important objectives in every office design project is to use the new workplace as a tool to strengthen the feeling of belonging and pride for our clients’ associates. This is possible only if we engage to a comprehensive change management process with our clients’ teams. This actions require dedicated resources and will not succeed unless the management aligns vigorously behind the reasons of the design process. One of the most common mistakes in change management is trying to change the working culture from the culture’s end. The working culture of a group or organisation is a complex phenomenon that stems essentially from the way the organisation is structured and led. It cannot be changed through training or through setting people cultural change objectives. Since it is mainly a product of the company’s values, systems and practices, if the above are not changed, the pressure for behavioral change will only result in frustration and cynicism. The culture that a company needs is a product of strategic planning and it should enable and enhance the organisation’s ability to attain its strategic goals. It is, therefore, very important that the desired working culture is defined in full alignment on said strategic goals and in a good understanding of the underlying key factors of success.

GENERATIONS@WORK FOR A BETTER FUTURE Generations at Work is an initiative that should be regarded as a multi generation debate platform for a better future of work, in general, aiming to develop better workplace concepts, in particular. The research is part of WorkplaceLab project, managed currently by Ergonomics and Workplace Management Society (ERGOWORK) and initiated by GreenForest, Polytechnic University from Timisoara and the Romanian Workplace and Facility Management Association (ROFMA), available online at www.workplacelab.wordpress.com A part of the research was a survey about work motivations with a number of 112 respondents from high schools, universities and workers with different active experience, carried out between April and June 2019. Their top 10 motivations are presented in the table. In the first half a general hierarchy, in the second half, for each item of the top 10 motivations, in which position it is, in each group of work category. If we are looking at both top 5 and top 10 general hierarchies and each category hierarchy, we have more similarities as differences. However, in a detailed analysis we can identify differences. Thus, in the top 5 we have for Highs School and University Students firsts 2 positions items that reflect a prevalent orientation to relaxing items as „live by practicing personal passions“ and „the opportunity to be among people with whom I feel good, have fun, are my friends“. In the same time in the top of employed people, most important are topics about vocation, useful of work and personal growing in relation with others. If are looking at top 10 we have the same obvious differences between High School and University Students and especially the employees with more 15 years’ experience. For High School and University Students are in top more important topics that provide diversity and flexibility and also relaxing orientation. For employees with experience the organization and team capacity to implement them ideas/projects, but also a job that avoid the sedentary, become important. “The current stage of the project “Generations at Work” shows that actually the differences in terms of work motivations are not very different between generations of workers and students but some differences from empirical observations are revealed as a higher orientation for a relaxing behaviour in the students’ groups. In the same time the research proves that it is a possible that different generations stay and work, reflect together, even without a material reward motivation. 38

These digital natives’ integration challenges are generated especially by the different cultural identities and also by different skills set that the members of this generation have. Generally speaking, they have, as the name suggests, better digital skills, they are more open minded, flexible in many areas. As the gender issue and social – economic – environment traditional is set up, they have a good level of taking initiative. On the other hand they also have weaknesses, in general

These weaknesses cumulate with their own identity, which they are trying to build, but is also mixed with the low level of patience from the older generations, especially towards the younger workers. The different skills set is certainly a positive element and diversity is a key for innovation, but for better results we should work together for a better “Future of Work” and the first step is to try to understand each other better.

None of these would, of course, be possible without the commitment of the team in ETEM Systems Romania as well as the long term trust and support of our customers and partners.

BUCURESTI MALL VITAN CELEBRATES TWO DECADES OF INNOVATION September 2019 brings about the anniversary of București Mall – Vitan, a landmark since this is the first modern shopping center in Romania that has shaped the experiences of the inhabitants of Bucharest for 20 years now. Not just in terms of fashion and shopping, but also when it comes to entertainment and services. With an occupancy rate of 99% and a gross leasable area of 40,000 square meters, București Mall – Vitan is much more than a shopping center: it is a landmark for the capital of the country and a meeting point for trendsetters and fashionistas, with a history of changing the shopping, entertainment, and urban experience of Romanians for the better. It specializes in reinvention: it went from being a pioneer, the first modern shopping center in Romania, to developing a focus on exclusivity. București Mall – Vitan has both a unique initiative in retail dedicated to Romanian designers (the Designers Boutique pop-up store) and exclusive brands, such as the Italian Resto Aperto, as well as a singular international recognition among local shopping

centers. The shopping center obtained it because of its decorations and CSR activities, that have in common an emphasis on ecology and culture. The series of events celebrating the anniversary of București Mall – Vitan also coincided with two tenants added to the mix, as its constant optimization is a long-term strategy of the shopping center: MARC O’POLO and Tommy Hilfiger Accessories, so there was a lot to celebrate for the customers. The former tenant adds up to the calendar of premieres for București Mall – Vitan for this fall. The store in the first modern shopping center in Romania is also the first MARC O’POLO available to the inhabitants of this country. This international brand with Scandinavian roots embraces an individual style that

reflects the philosophy of its founders: “The freedom to be yourself”. București Mall - Vitan placed Romania on the Hermes Awards map when it became the first local shopping center that won such distinctions. The Lost Atlantis project obtained two gold and three platinum trophies at the prestigious Hermes competition. In 2018, the first modern shopping center in Romania has added two more Platinum Hermes awards – for decorations and CSR - for its Snow Queen project, which included a recycling component, to its track record. Next year, Designers Boutique @ București Mall - Vitan obtained international recognition: it won another Hermes award, this time the platinum distinction in the Communication l Strategic Projects category. Moreover, as 2019 was the year București Mall – Vitan celebrated the first 20 years of activity, it added another premiere to its CV: it became the first shopping center to award one of its loyal customers an electric car. The clients enjoyed this historical moment also by means of the mall’s music festival, the first of its kind among shopping centers.

DOES EVEYBODY WANT TO INVEST IN CLUJ? “In Cluj, the demand continues to be higher than the offer. Our team is a young and ambitious, connected to the new trends in the market and can meet the growing demand of our clients”, Andrasi Tibor, senior broker, industrial/office department – REMS, reveals the pulse of the regional market. Which are the concepts – recent investments that influence the market evolution for Cluj-Napoca? Cluj continues to develop the retail segment, already well represented in the area, and the industrial parks. This inevitably leads to further investments and an increasing demand for jobs and brought about a „migration” of the labour force from other areas and cities to Cluj-Napoca. As a result, it is not surprising that most real estate investments in the last year were recorded in the residential segment, dominated by the sale of apartments and houses. We could also witness a special interest in completing the new, ultramodern Class A office centres that led to the relocation of customers from offices in old buildings. Several large real estate projects were already announced for 2020, in the residential, office and industrial segment. In Cluj, the demand continues to be higher than the offer, especially on the commercial/office/ industrial segment, so the market can still absorb a fairly large number of properties.

How did the market indicators evolved during 2019, which are in your expertise the segments that could attract more interest or capital, how about the impact in the business for REMS? Although year 2019 witnessed difficult legal and political turmoil, it became clear that foreign direct investments are growing according to macroeconomic indicators. However, the industrial segment remains highly poor as the market can still absorb over 100,000 square meters. In our opinion, the acquisition of industrial land and the construction of new logistics parks can make a major contribution to the development of the real estate market. Special emphasis should also be placed on speculative industrial constructions, not on just „build to suit” deliveries, given the fact that presently the demand exceeds by far the available offer. As far as REMS is concerned, this year we witnessed a significant increase in demand for the high class office market. The interest of small and large entrepreneurs for relocation of offices has had a major impact on our business as REMS has successfully completed several transactions on this segment.

What type of strategic attraction factors does the city/region still benefits of? Which are the main concerns but also the main advantages? To start on a positive note, Cluj should be regarded as a national pole of the IT industry, investing millions in the development of this segment. This is why the city gained the title of Silicon Valley of Transylvania, mainly because of the influx of world-renowned companies that established here. To highlight several advantages, we would like to mention the university spirit of the city, with tens of thousands of students studying here, geographic position, the international airport that grows from year to year, pro-European culture, and cultural or sporting events that are frequently organized. As for the concerns, we point out to the excessive bureaucracy that often lags behind important city projects, the lack of a concise longterm development strategy or the lack of infrastructure that could easily link Cluj to Western Europe. The good part is that local government supports foreign investments, this bringing about the continuous development of the infrastructure, as well as by providing facilities for those respective investors. What elements define a successful advisory firm in your opinion and which are the strengths of the REMS team? In our opinion, a respectable real estate agency must provide promptness, seriousness and especially trust to its clients, given the fierce competition in this segment. All REMS team members show commitment, customer loyalty, responsibility, inner motivation, and last but not least, passion. In order to be able to have a successful business in any field, first of all it takes passion. Our philosophy of work is simple: „we tell you what you need to know, even if it’s not what you wanted to hear.” It is a principle that we use to ensure that all investments and transactions made by and through REMS are SURE and PROFITABLE. That’s why we have many recommendations from satisfied customers. REMS provides with a complete, correct and modern vision of everything that means the vast field of real estate services.

A NEW LANDMARK. MORE EXPERTISE. The grand opening event of Hexagon Offices was held on 23rd May 2019 in Cluj-Napoca. Active in different projects and development stages of investments in the commercial and industrial sector, KÉSZ Romania is at the forefront of the market evolution. Which are the future projects - with SÁROSI Béla and Anca PINTEA, Sales Department of KÉSZ Romania. How was the official opening of Hexagon Offices embraced by the real estate market, which are the main distinctive features that the actual and future clients and partners can benefit of? We measure the success of the event through the tremendous number of guests who celebrated with us the completion of the construction works. The event included a comprehensive tour of the Hexagon Offices, starting with the conference center, followed by the typical current floor with partitions, 50

which offered for our potential occupiers a very good perspective on the potential of relocating their operations into Hexagon Offices. Our building has unique architecture, state-of-the art technical features and offers the posibility to accommodate any type of businesses from small to large scale operations. At Hexagon Offices, we believe there should be “life” before, during and after work, which is why the building and its facilities were designed to allow various daily activities for all employees, such as dedicated events area, extended leisure facilities- from fitness facilities to restaurants, and green concept - all under a modern interior design, in

order for the buiding to embodie the Work-Life-Pleasure concept. All in one, Hexagon Offices was developed at the highest standards, to meet any local or international requirement, as these days Cluj-Napoca becomes an important office hub, the second largest office market after Bucharest. Do you consider that the market is experiencing a new generation of buildings, what are the current demands from clients and partners, innovations implemented, what type of challenges you see ahead? We believe that the market is developing and we wanted to be with one step ahead. For our tenants, we can add, at their request, various modules to each office space such as a kitchen, single offices, meeting rooms, open space areas or a copy & storage room. We differentiate ourselves by providing our tenants the possibility to customise their work spaces according to their needs, through what we call an “agile design system”. The clear trend of the market is energy efficient, sustainable, smart buildings with no warranty issues.

is certified in category „A”. We have our own specialized company for electrical installations (KÉSZ Electric) to have full control for the implementation of smart technologies in industrial and office buildings, or any other type of construction. We believe they are the biggest challenges of the future, which we are ready to realize. Finally, what counts most in an office space of the future is another keyword: individuality. At any moment, we must remember this: office culture is as important as design trends – if not more. In this regard, our promise at Hexagon Offices is the experience of quality, which is why the building itself was created to offer practical advantages and accessible facilities to all our tenants across the complex perimeter, thus contributing to creating a pleasant work environment. How do you feel, the potential of the regional market in Romania? We see that the number of projects is decreasing for the entire construction sector, especially for the industrial field. However, we are optimistic because we see many projects in the early stages, pre-construction such as intention,

design, authorization, tender. We consider that investors are looking for serious partners, with respect for quality and deadlines. Which are the main strengths of KÉSZ Romania, reference accomplishments for 2019, objectives and works scheduled for 2020? Our company is characterized by complex thinking, complex services and vast experience. We are aware and proud at the same time of the skills, professionalism and accumulated capacities of KÉSZ to respond effectively to the complex demands of the construction industry. From the design to the execution, from the installation of technologies to the smart buildings, the company solves the tasks formulated by the beneficiaries, either in Romania or in Central and Eastern Europe. We are working on a residential apartment tower and a 20 level offices building for an important developer in Bucharest, a strategic partner for us. We are building the administrative headquarters of the Transilvania Bank’s, the most important private bank in Romania. Our company is entrusted with rehabilitation of three

churches, all important architectural heritage in Cluj county. We are in the advanced stages of negotiations for important industrial investments, business centers that hopefully we will realize next year. We are ready for design and build works, from concept to the execution details, with a talented and dedicated design team. We are focusing on the development of our own team.

THE MARKET NEEDED OUR PRODUCTS AND EXPERTISE The record number of projects registered on all construction business segments-industrial, commercial and administrative - represented the sign that the market needed the ELCO products and the commercial boilers were rapidly adopted by the construction industry. Catalin Draguleanu, Country Manager, Ariston Thermo Romania, talks about market trends and how ELCO became a reference in major developments, in just 3 years.

In addition to the product range assets, the most relevant advantage for ELCO is the integrated package of complete services, from consulting, to design and implementation, which aims to ensure maximum reliability throughout the operation of the equipment. Which milestones marked the evolution of ELCO in Romania, which elements exemplify best the success of the strategy for this market? ELCO is a well-known international brand, with more than 90 years history in research and development of heating products. We took the decision to include this German brand in our Ariston Thermo Romania portfolio following a very in depth analysis of the market needs. The accelerated development of the real estate sector in the last years of the office, industrial, commercial and residential segments has led 52

us to make the decision to bring locally a range of products that meet the specific demands on these applications. The success of our ELCO products has demonstrated that it was a very good decision, the market needed our state of the art technology and ELCO was rapidly adopted by the commercial construction industry. The ELCO products are on the market for just 3 years, but we are very proud with the outcome of our initiative. Until now we launched locally 3 ranges of high power condensing boilers THISION® L ECO, TRIGON® XL and the flagship model TRIGON® XXL, which delivers up to 2MW from a single premix unit and maximum BREEAM credits. The competitiveness of our products helped us gain important projects and accomplish partnerships with some of the leading investors on the construction market in Romania.

Which are the key characteristics of ELCO products that contribute to the sustainability of projects? ELCO is a global forerunner in heating technology and one of the market leaders, its heating solutions, including smart energy saving technologies, are designed to meet individual project requirements. The product range includes condensing boilers for commercial and industrial spaces, which are highly valued for their high efficiency, low emissions, reliability and a positive power-to-ground ratio. Though, one of the main criteria considered by our clients when choosing the ELCO products is the support offered in selecting and configuring the solutions, but also the service & maintenance facilities. The projects in which we are involved are covering the entire spectrum of the construction sector – the commercial, industrial and administrative, such as office buildings, shopping centers, hospitals, health centers, education facilities etc. How do the features of the products help developers, investors, construction and project management companies, to ensure the certification, efficiency and long term viability of their projects? The ELCO brand has demonstrated its orientation towards innovation since the beginning, today being one of the European leaders in the industrial heating industry. Such history helps us be much more visible and easily recognizable as a brand in the industry in which we are operating. Certainly, the efficiency of the products and the quality of the service are a priority for our customers, the results they are expecting being directly determined by these criteria. Based on our international knowledge and practice, we anticipated the trend of heating equipment for large applications towards highly efficient products, that substantially reduces NOx emissions, helping the investors to obtain high energy efficiency ratings. At the same time, customers are interested in reliability in terms of operation, a positive power-to-ground ratio, as well as specialized consultancy, which offers the guarantee of a proper choice and long-term operation of the products.

buildings, while the low water content feature is capable of adapting to the changing demands of every application. How do you characterize the current status of the market in Romania, can we present a few of the reference clients and solutions provided? How significant the regional market can become, which other cities in the country have the potential to generate more business, in your opinion? One of the reasons behind the launch of ELCO on the local market was precisely the accelerated development of the construction sector, on all segments where ELCO boilers can be used. According to real estate reports, the 2019 office market in Romania could be marked by a record in terms of deliveries, if all the announced projects are completed on time. This means that by the end of the year the modern office spaces sector could increase with approx. 377,000 square meters, more than double compared with the first part of the year, when were delivered office buildings with an area of about 128,000 square meters. 40% of total deliveries were in Bucharest, while outside the Capital investments continue to be mostly directed towards cities in Transylvania, which accounted for over one third of new installation & logistics spaces. We expect further business growth, as the full year GDP expansion figure looks like will top 4%. This means that 2019 looks set to become the 9th consecutive year of continuous growth for Romania, equaling the previous record streak, seen between 2000 and 2008.

The main business segments for ELCO are both new office buildings and rehabilitation projects. Thus, one of the most important projects carried out last year by ELCO was the replacement of heating equipment for one of the largest banks in Romania, which meant changing the heating systems of 250 branches and replacing them with high energy efficiency equipment. Another very important project on the local market was The Bridge - Building 1, 2 and 3, with heating equipment totaling over 6.850 kW or Global Worth - Campus 1 , 2 and 3 where ELCO boilers produce over 4.750 kW. Other representative projects are Day Tower, with an area of 12,000 square meters and a required 1100 kW, the Altex logistics warehouse in Dragomiresti Vale, with an area of approx. 90,000 sqm and a necessary 1700 kW or SuinProd production hall in Iasi, with a total of 2,200 kW. If we analyze from a geographical point of view, Bucharest generated the highest number of ELCO projects, but we are looking with the same attention to cities like Timisoara, Cluj and Iasi. What have you seen changing more recently, which are the main challenges for 2019/2020, which are you objectives for ELCO in Romania?

For the business sector in general, maintaining long-term stability and predictability of economic policies and environment is strongly connected to ensuring a sustainable business growth. We rely on an organic development of demand, which will further determine the expansion of our product portfolio available locally. In addition to the product range assets, we believe that the most relevant advantage for ELCO is the integrated package of complete services, from consulting, to design and implementation, which aims to ensure maximum reliability throughout the operation of the equipment. Our potential clients need to know that the ELCO team provides maintenance to boilers through a national service network and our technicians are specially trained and qualified to offer high quality services whenever needed by our clients. Our medium and long term plans are to develop out projects portfolio, increase the number of products available on the Romanian market and grow the network of service units, consisting of well-trained local specialists. 53

IASI - WHO WANTS TO LIVE IN A CITY THAT ACTUALLY ROCKS? It’s easy to fall in the trap of falling in LOVE with your own city: your friends & family are there, your youth is there, your FUTURE should also be there. Pesimism is over-rated: all the BEST things could happen there, all the investors should really have no reason not to invest. This blindness is sometimes annoying: all the cities are the SILICON Valleys of something or at least magnets for INDUSTRY 4.0. Nobody listens but to their own PROPAGANDA while mass-media publish click-bait TOPs of cities in which to live, work or travel to. And you can get depressed if your city is not on one of that fake lists, or even worse, one of your NEIGHBOURING city is included in it.

But if everything is so PERFECT, what’s left for you to BUILD in your city, what’s left for you to FIGHT for? The key is going beyond of your inner circle and see the really good things that happened in your city in the past 12 months. “CONTINENTAL extends its office building in Iasi following EUR 27 M investment”; “The world’s largest online retailer AMAZON will expand its offices in Iasi, eastern Romania, by another 5,000 square metres by 2020”; “The opening of the Iasi office comes after a year of significant 58

growth for BLUE PROJECTS, both in terms of clients portfolio and revenue”; “Prime Kapital to develop EUR 200 mln mixed-use project in NE Romania”. “The Continental Research & Development centre in Iasi has grown from 30 people in 2006 to over 1,900 at the end of 2018. This growth came following the increasing number of projects that our colleagues are involved in. The investment proves the importance that the company is giving to the engineering centre in Iasi”, said Marian Petrescu, the manager of the Continental unit in Iasi. Opened in

2005, Amazon’s Development Center in Iasi was the group’s first R&D facility in Eastern Europe. It plays a major role in the city’s burgeoning tech industry, employing skilled experts who are inventing exciting new technologies in the fields of Cloud Computing, Information Security, Machine Learning and Data Analysis”. For those focused only on comparisons between Iasi and other Romanian cities like Cluj-Napoca and Timisoara, let me tell you that it’s a waste of time. We should zoom-out beyond our borders for the other regional successful cities from Central and Eastern Europe. For example LVIV, a city from Ukraine with 750k inhabitants and 140k students has only 20k employees in IT & Outsorcing, but a robust 4k relevant yearly graduates pipeline. And they announced at CEE Outsourcing Awards a new mixed-use brownfield development: Innovation District ІТ Park, with 6 buildings and 200k GLA office premises. And Lviv is just one of about 50 cities in the CEE with which we have to compare as potential, strategy and speed of development of the talent pole synchronized with the development of the stock of modern offices and the increase of the quality of urban life. For the sake of comparison, IASI has 445k inhabitants, 55k students and already 21k employees working in IT&O industry with a 3k pipeline of relevant graduates every year. Our city has efficiently capitalized on all its strengths (regional talent hub, air hub, saturation of urban economies of cities that started in these areas much earlier). Thus, the combined efforts of the local entrepreneurs, of the multinational companies established in Iasi, of the talents in the field and of the talent pool have been rewarded. The boom of the ITO industry in IASI was rewarded by winning at the CEE Outsourcing Awards Gala in Warsaw the title of EMERGING CITY OF THE YEAR by our city, in 2018. Maybe these are some of the reasons why the real estate developer Prime Kapital has launched SILK DISTRICT, the mixed-use project in our city, considered the largest city in NorthWWW.TRANSILVANIABUSINESS.RO

Eastern Romania. “The city has strong economic fundamentals, and we are delighted to work with the local authorities to help Iasi harness its competitive advantages, improve the quality of life for its inhabitants, and remain attractive to new generations,” said Prime Kapital partner Mihail Vasilescu. The project, developed on a former textile platform in Iasi, will have, starting in 2021, two main components: category A offices with an area of approximately 100,000 square meters and 2,500 apartments. It will also include 11,700 sqm of retail space, a four-star hotel with 160 rooms, a 1,500 sqm clinic, services, parks, leisure and relaxation areas, a kindergarten and a swimming pool. “With the six office buildings downtown, PALAS has consolidated a regional business hub, enabling the development of the IT industry well beyond Iasi. Palas is a catalyst for the labour force in Iasi, and the figures speak for themselves: from 2012 (the opening year) and to this date, the number of people working in the offices went from 900 to more than 7,500, through the presence of more than 50 companies,” according to the Iulius Group representatives. Office development in Romania is adapting to the preferences of the new generations of employees and changing the very idea of its offer. Developers now design projects for complex living, providing good quality of life and urban regeneration rather than just work premises.

“The announced office projects (which will bring Iasi’s office stock to over half a million square meters by 2025) should be encouraged, as they represent a guarantee of the economic evolution of a big city less attractive to the

transformation industry, in conditions of poor land accessibility to the hard core of the EU”, considers professor George Turcanasu from the “Al. I. Cuza” University of Iasi. I believe that IASI becomes a city that is truly open to investment, capable of creating, attracting and retaining intelligence. A city that is not missing from the European map of successful regional cities. WHO WANTS TO LIVE IN A CITY THAT ACTUALLY ROCKS? I sure do and hopefully, my kids too.

Our services focus on our knowledge of geotechnics, the environment and infrastructure.

Millennium Bridge Measurement of tilt of the bridge during simulated live loads The London Millennium Bridge is a 330 m pedestrian bridge, spanning the River Thames between St. Paul’s Cathedral and the new Tate Gallery. At least 150,000 people used the bridge in the first three days of its opening weekend. On Saturday June 10th 2000, a larger than expected movement of the bridge structure was recorded. In order to further investigate this problem, the bridge was closed on June 12th 2000 and a series of tests were developed. SIXENSE was approached to measure the tilt of the mid-section of the bridge decking in two separate scenarios: Bridge unloaded; Bridge loaded with pedestrians (120 people, standing in an area 120 m long x 2 m wide). Our engineers had a time frame of only 20 minutes to record readings and register the final ‘load applied’ results. Tilt was measured at 6 different bridge sections, firstly, whilst the structure was unloaded, and then after the pedestrians had been placed in the standing zones. The two readings from each cross section indicated any lateral changes in tilt to the bridge deck. The results were immediately entered into a spread sheet on site and the overall tilts were computed in less than 5 minutes. The data was presented to the client in digital format on site and then faxed as an official copy the following day.

Landslide monitoring – Balaton lake The main railway line around Hungary’s famous Lake Balaton transports not only residents of surrounding towns but also a large number of holiday passengers during the summer season. A part of this track is situated on an embankment, which suffered a notable landslide which obliged the Hungarian Railways to stop train movements for a month. As a first step, a Larssen wall has been installed in order to mitigate the risk of further slippage and stabilise the embankment. As a second step, a provisional railway track has been built on piles, to allow train circulation until the Hungarian Railways provides a long term solution. During the construction of the final railway track, an automated monitoring system has been agreed to prevent further damage and ensure the safety of the site. The contractor in charge of construction works, Strabag, entrusted SIXENSE to design, install and operate this monitoring system. As the most suitable monitoring solution in this context, SIXENSE installed electrolevels on the sheet piled wall and the provisional railway track to measure the inclination of these structures. Recorded data is then

automatically transmitted to SIXENSE’s monitoring database and visualised on our Geoscope software in real time. The first monitoring phase operated during the construction of the final railway track in order to follow construction, the effects of drilling works and ensure the stability of the site. An automatic SMS alarm system has also been installed to warn the Client in case of significant movements which may imply a risk to the train circulation. In the second phase of monitoring, electrolevels were installed on concrete sleepers in order to monitor movements of the new railway track for one additional year. SIXENSE’s automatic monitoring solution provide the contractor and the client with an efficient risk management tool in order to protect this important infrastructure of touristic value. Green Court Bucharest is developed using ecological technology and sustainable solutions such as an energy efficient facade which reduces solar heat gains, enhanced fresh air flow rate for a healthier working environment, energy efficient lighting systems equipped with motion and intensity sensors as well as charging stations for electrical cars. The project will be LEED Gold certified and will provide the highest levels of comfort for its tenants, one of the most efficient and flexible workspaces in Bucharest and the highest standards of quality. SIXENSE was in charge of supply, installation and maintenance of a complex monitoring system. The foundations of the buildings, the ground as well as the super structures are monitored during construction and the whole life period. An on-line seismic monitoring system is recording the vibration induced in the buildings. All the data is automatically recorded into a centralised database connected to Geoscope data management platform for visualisation, analysis and alarms. WWW.TRANSILVANIABUSINESS.RO

A DIGITAL 6TH SENSE TO MANAGE THE LIFE CYCLE OF URBAN CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE Which are the digital tools that transform the world of the construction industry? The main benefits of complex monitoring systems, digital expertise, IoT, living digital simulations, about the ability to transform data into information, with Mariana Garstea, General Manager SIXENSE GROUP Romania & SEE. What is the prime strategic mission of SIXENSE and which are in brief the target sectors and the solutions available for clients in Romania? The principal mission of SIXENSE is to provide support to designers, builders, operators and infrastructure owners in order to successfully overcome three challenges facing them: construction project management, asset management and risk management. Our target sectors in Romania are the real estate and infrastructure, but we are also looking at others specific components like dams, smart city technologies, etc. The solutions proposed for the local market are related to Engineering, Monitoring, Software to Digitization, all of them ready to be implemented by SIXENSE Romania. Can we define the main benefits of complex monitoring systems, in which stages of projects are they useful, is their use mandatory due to legislation, to what extend these solutions can prove crucial for the sustainability of future projects? Considering “monitoring” and its role, it is good to understand a few

things very clearly. Monitoring with geotechnical and structural instruments is used as input to the initial design of a facility or remedial treatment, and to ensure safety, to reduce construction costs or to control construction procedures. Measurements can also be used to ensure long-term satisfactory performance, to provide legal protection to an owner responsible for construction and to raise the geotechnical engineering at a state-ofthe-art level. We deal with a wellregulated domain, with ISO standards, but the alarming aspect is not necessarily in the current legislation, but in its non-application. If an instrumentation program is performed for the right reasons, planned properly, and executed by diligent people, it can make a large contribution toward increasing safety, reducing cost or environmental impact of construction, and furthermore reducing potential litigation. How do the features of the solutions from SIXENSE help developers,

investors, construction and project management companies, to ensure the certification, efficiency and longterm viability of their projects? From BIM to visual inspections by drone and real-time monitoring, our digital expertise and IoT solutions optimize the construction and operation of buildings. This is the digital dose that the world of the construction industry was waiting for. Through our digital approach, we follow the life cycle of the buildings. The data collected enables us to guarantee safety, improve quality and optimize operations. The world of construction is at the beginning of digitalization and SIXENSE invents the solutions of the future that guide this transformation of the sector. What is digital twin technology and how will it influence the future of infrastructure? Just a brief reminder of the digital twin concept, if I may. A Digital Twin is a living digital simulation that brings all the data and models together and updates itself from multiple sources to represent its physical counterpart. Digital Twin is transforming the way to manage monitoring and maintenance of the infrastructure, it is a decisionmaking support tool that provides optimal and real time information to infrastructure managers. Transportation Infrastructure must become “Intelligent” to manage future challenges: to enable Interconnection among people, vehicles and Infrastructures, to manage in a dynamic way the roads, to digitalize assets (IoT solutions) to enable Predictive Maintenance. How would you characterize the evolution and impact of SIXENSE Romania? SIXENSE Romania has undergone an incredible evolution. Starting in 2011, with a first subway project, we continued with dozens of other projects, both in road and rail infrastructure, as well as in real estate, residential, office, shopping centers, etc. We can proudly say that we have revolutionized this market, we have set a certain quality standard and we become the leader in this field. 61

MAKE REAL ESTATE GREAT AGAIN Real Estate is a key component of each and every investment, be it a production facility, an industrial development, a shopping mall or simple store, an office building or residential complex, for brick and mortar is hosting them all. The same goes for hospitals, schools, sports facilities and other buildings of public interest – every one of them needs a piece of land. Four directions should be pursued by authorities to make Romania more attractive for investors. Some of them are already being tackled by authorities, while others are only in the focus of investors. In the end, there must be better coordination between public institutions and private companies, and a sustained effort on both sides. These measures refer to (i) better and unified legislation, (ii) fiscal incentives for green buildings, (iii) specialized investment vehicles in real estate, and (iv) cooperation between the public and the private sectors.

372/2005 on the energy performance of buildings). Therefore, one may argue that granting tax incentives for green buildings which are being built before that date should be a priority for the Romanian authorities. However, only Cluj-Napoca and Timisoara have implemented such tax incentives on green buildings, and there are other local initiatives, such as in Iasi. Unfortunately, Bucharest, even if it is the city with the biggest number of green buildings, does not have such an incentives scheme in place.

Legislation

Investment Vehicles in Real Estate

A unified town planning and construction legislation has been on the agenda of the Ministry for Regional Development and Public Administration (MDRAP) since March 2018, when the preliminary theses of the unified code were published on MDRAP’s website – exactly 10 years after the first project of a Construction Code which was initiated, in March 2008, by the State Constructions Inspectorate. This initiative is most welcomed, yet it needs a huge codification effort, as the legislation in this field is spread in various pieces of legislation of all possible rankings: laws, government decisions, orders of different ministries etc. It is to be expected that the process will be long-term, yet it is most important that it is transparent and that real estate professionals (architects, lawyers, engineers) as well as public authorities and investors be actively involved.

Such investment vehicles would be set up with funds from private investors and enjoy a special tax regime, based on the model of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT) existing in other European countries (e.g. Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands). A REIT, as a form of indirect investment in real estate, offers two main advantages: (i) the possibility to invest collectively with other investors in a fund that is managed by a specialized investment management company, and (ii) a more diversified portfolio, as opposed to having invested in a single property for the same value. On the other hand, direct investments in real estate require significant financial resources and expose investors to ownership risks such as the ones associated with maintenance and management of the property, and underlying costs such as property insurance, levies, property charges and taxes.

Tax Incentives for Green Buildings All new buildings for which the building permit will be issued after December 31, 2020 shall have to be Near Zero Energy Buildings, in accordance with the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (implemented in Romania by Law

Cooperation Between the Public and the Private Sectors A clearer and more transparent cooperation of the private and public sectors is definitely needed, as each new building or complex of buildings to be erected in a city has a direct and

concrete impact on the respective city district. Better planning and master planning of infrastructure projects should be in the focus of both authorities and investors alike, since a sustainable urban development implies responsibility on both sides. Real estate developers and investors should stick together and represent the industry’s interests in front of public authorities through the unified voice of industry’s associations and tackle major issues such as infrastructure, public parking lots, enlargement of streets following the implementation of new real estate projects etc. The Real Estate Task Forces of the various chambers of commerce in Romania are a good place to start, as venues for investors (for now mostly through their lawyers) to pursue the interests of the real estate industry.

BRASOV INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT Brasov International Airport is the first greenfield airport being built in Romania in the last 50 years and it will be a brand for Transylvania, as it will be the first airport in the country to be privatized, the first to have a virtual control tower and the first to have such an authentic architecture of the passenger terminal. Brasov International Airport is the major infrastructure project that people of Brasov have been waiting for 30 years. The project emerged as a response to increasing mobility of the citizens, as a result of the strong economy and tourism development of the area, the increase of commercial and cultural exchanges and the strategic position of Brasov for cargo activity. The airport will serve mainly the counties of Brasov, Covasna, Harghita, a catchment area of around 2 million people and it will be the first airport built in Romania since 1960, which proves the high complexity of this project.

66

The airport began to take shape in 2014, when the runway, with a length of 2,820 meters was completed. After solving the site related patrimonial problems, the constructions continued in 2018 with the taxiway and the Apron on which the aircraft park. Complementary buildings, public parking and the access route are currently under construction. Another contract for the design and construction of the Passenger Terminal has also been signed. The terminal’s authentic architecture was designed by the famous Romanian architect, Stefan Dorin and it will be a spacious and modern building with a capacity to easily process 1 million passengers

per year, which is the traffic forecast for the 8th year of operation. According to the studies, Brasov area has a great potential, the airport could be used by 5 million passengers per year in the long term which also leads to new opportunities, investments and a great economic increase of the region. There are several steps that are taking place simultaneously, in terms of airport infrastructure, airport certification, Air Navigation Services, airport business model and concession to a private entity. The target of Brasov County Council is to complete all the works, obtain certification for the airport and begin its operation as soon as possible.

GLOBALWORTH INDUSTRIAL. THE NEW PLATFORM FOR THE LOGISTICS AND LIGHT INDUSTRIAL PORTFOLIO OF GLOBALWORTH Globalworth acknowledges the strong demand in the industrial and logistics sector; one of the Group’s strategic decisions is to consolidate its position in the fast-growing logistics and industrial market. We focus on strengthening our position as leader on the office market, but also increasing our presence in the logistics and light industrial segment through new projects. Having this in mind, we started by rebranding our logistics and light industrial portfolio to Globalworth Industrial. Following the same direction we started developing a new project near Bucharest, with an investment cost of EUR 35.5 million. The project is in Chitila (Ilfov County), and has a leasable area of about 77,000 sqm, which will be built in phases in partnership with Global Vision, a leading construction and property management company in Romania. Chitila Logistics Park is a last-mile logistics project, which will be built on a land plot of over 136,000 sqm. The first phase will offer 23,800 sqm of logistics space being scheduled for delivery in 2020. The location benefits from excellent accessibility, being positioned next to the Bucharest ring road which connects the project to the A1 and N7 roads and the city’s central districts. In October 2018 we started the development of the first phase of our Timisoara Industrial Park II. The launch of this new development follows the success of our nearby TIP project which

is now 100% let and the ongoing demand for logistic space in this location. Timisoara Industrial Park II offers the potential of another 155,600 sqm and will be built on a plot of over 35 hectares. The first phase of the expansion, of approximately 18,000 sqm, has now been completed and leased 66.5% to NDB Logistica Romania. Globalworth Industrial also includes a project developed for Groupe

Renault, which will be rebranded Pitesti Industrial Park and is located 100 km west of Bucharest, near the Bucharest - Pitesti motorway, one of the country’s principal warehouses and industrial corridors. Pitesti Industrial Park is leased solely to Automotive Dacia, offering c. 69,000sqm of GLA, and is one of Groupe Renault’s largest spare parts and accessories distribution centers outside of France.

ANOTHER YEAR OF EXPANSION CTP entered 2019 with the announcement of Mrs. Ana Dumitrache’s return to the company as Country Head of CTP Romania, where CTP develops and manages a portfolio of over 1,000,000 sqm of A Class industrial properties spread across 10 cities: Arad, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Deva, Pitesti, Sibiu, Timisoara, Turda, Ineu and Salonta.

CTP has entered the Bulgarian market with plans to reach 100,000 sqm of leased space by the end of 2021. Bulgaria is CTP’s seventh market in the Central European region, extending the company’s geographical footprint from the North Sea to the Black Sea. CTP also operates in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Romania, Poland. CTP acquired A1 Bucharest Park during a transaction valued at approximately 40 million euro. The property is situated at kilometer 13 on A1 motorway and this transaction represents a move for strengthening CTP’s position in the area. The developer already owns other three properties in the vicinity of Bucharest: CTPark Bucharest West, CTPark Bucharest and CTPark Bucharest Chitila. The logistics project A1 Bucharest Park was developed by AIC RE and bought by CTP from Vabeld Group. „The acquired project connects very well with the rest of our properties in the same spot and also connects well with our idea of offering a new product to the market which is small spaces at high standards – 1,000 to 3,000 sqm units, newly built, high quality, low

72

energy consumption and maximum comfort. We believe small businesses, production units, companies that need relatively small space deserve to develop their activity in proper space, which help them keep costs with utilities under control and attract good work force. And the perfect location for this is km 13 on A1 highway, which we consolidate as location by this new acquisition”, added Ana Dumitrache, Country Head of CTP Romania.

Largest real estate financing transaction BRD Groupe Société Générale S.A. and the Czech subsidiary of Société Générale, Komerční banka, a. s., granted the term loan credit facility to the real estate developer CTP, 82 million EUR, in order to sustain its investments in Romania in one of its logistics parks, CTPark Bucharest West. The developer has invested nearly EUR 500 million in Romania since entering the market, and plans to develop further. CTPark Bucharest West is one of the largest master-planned industrial parks not

only in Romania but also in Central and Eastern Europe. Currently, the property comprises 400,000 sqm built up area and is planned to reach 1 million sqm in the coming years, aiming to transform Romania in a logistics hub in Eastern Europe. Also, CTPark Sibiu II takes shape - the first premium warehouse is already up. The park has a total area of 9 hectares and in the first stage 13,200 sqm are built-up and pre-leased. Upon completion of all the buildings in the park, the investment in its development will total about EUR 23 million. This is the second investment of CTP in Sibiu after the expansion of a factory completed last year, but it is the first CTP premium logistics park with more tenants in the area. CTP continues its growth in Romania in 2019, after reaching in the beginning of the year a historic threshold for the company’s activity in Romania: 1 million square meters, built in 15 parks. CTP is the leading premium industrial parks developer and long term administrator in Romania and Central and Eastern Europe. CTP is the owner of the CTPark Network, the largest integrated system of premium business parks in Central and Eastern Europe, with 5 million sqm of A-Class properties at more than 90 locations in seven countries. In Romania, CTP develops and manages a portfolio of over 1,000,000 sqm of A Class industrial properties spread across 10 cities: Arad, Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Deva, Pitesti, Sibiu, Timisoara, Turda, Ineu and Salonta.

A 22 YEAR JOURNEY FROM ENERGY AND TELECOM INFRASTRUCTURE TO GENERAL CONTRACTING & MAKING CITIES SMART Now, more than two decades away from starting the company, the beginning seems far away as Electrogrup is not for a long time just an „electro” business, but rather a multi-laterally developed company focused more and more on constructions. Adrian Florea, CEO Electrogrup, defines the crosssector evolution, the strenghts and strategic benefits for clients offered by the companies in E-INFRA. How do you perceive this evolution inside the company? I would say we have evolved with the needs of the market and, in particular, of our clients. Indeed, Electrogrup started in 1997 as an energy infrastructure builder. Two years after, in 1999, with the entry of the major mobile operators in Romania, we realized that the two fields have many similarities and that we can definitely use a great amount of resources for both energy and telecom projects. Over time, because a significant component in most energy and telecom projects is that of civil constructions, we have developed inside the company a separate constructions division that started taking over pure construction projects. So, in the past 5 years, we have grown to become a general contractor focused on industrial projects, but we are already evolving, along with the market needs, towards office and residential. Above all, the new smart city division perfectly completed this evolution. Besides the fact that any type of construction will have, over time, more and more needs for automation and intelligent systems, we strongly believe that cities are the poles of economic development that will control and attract resources in the future. Which would you say is the biggest challenge you faced throughout these major changes? I would mention two challenges - the decision to take our services outside the borders, which involves many paradigm changes, the integration in the new markets and aligment to new standards. We currently have subsidiaries in Germany and Poland and recently opened one in the United States. And, of course, the challenge to attract specialized workforce that can maintain the high quality of executions that we never compromise on. In the past few years, almost half of the turnover of the Electrogrup came from external projects and this helped us address the second challenge

- most of our employees work several months a year in projects abroad, where they are paid at the local salary levels and this is an advantage that fuels their decision to stay or even to return to the country. How do all these areas of expertise fit under the same „roof” and how do you put them at work for the benefit of the customers? Not only do they fit, but this is one of our main differentiators. First, the expertise in all the four areas helps us reduce costs and delivery times and also counsel our clients on how to best approach an optimal integration of energy & telecom sources and, of course, execute it. We do not refrain our expertise to Electrogrup, but to that of all the companies in E-INFRA. For example, for an industrial park, we can offer on top the construction of solar energy parks or roofs and power stations that can help save up to 50% of the monthly energy bill. If the building is not very close to the populated areas we can connect it with fiber optics and then sky is the limit for digital and smart appliances. Next to quality, a very important factor is delivering the projects on time and our cross-sector capacities help us react faster and better. To sum up this cross-sector evolution, I think for Electrogrup it was based on vision, opportunity and, very important, entrepreneurial spirit with high ambitions, which allowed the founders to evolve from a services company - Electrogrup, to a group of 5 internationally active companies, E-INFRA, with 600+ employees and 110+ milion Euro revenues last year, covering a wide range of infrastructure service in critical areas - we like to believe that, soon, any type of infrastructure.

ZACARIA’S RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS ARE PICKING UP MOMENTUM, WHILST THE DEVELOPER ALSO SECURES AN ENVIABLE POSITION IN THE INDUSTRIAL MARKET With a continuously growing portfolio of high value clients, Zacaria, the third largest developer of industrial parks in the country, is poised for even more achievements by the end of the 2019. In early spring of this year Zacaria signed one of its largest rental contracts for 15,000 m2 at Southern Industrial Park Craiova. At the same time this Romanian company has renewed its focus on its secondary market, the residential sector, with two new projects in Sibiu and Craiova. Steadily increasing occupancy in Zacaria’s Industrial Parks! The biggest deal so far this year for Zacaria was the lease of 15,000 sqm of warehouse space located in Southern Industrial Park in Craiova to global technology leader Cummins. Cummins, an American corporation that designs, manufactures and distributes engines, generators and other related technologies, rented 15,000 sqm, comprising of industrial space suitable for storage, manufacturing and assembly, as well as offices. The company will not only relocate its Romanian subsidiary to the newly built Southern Industrial Park, but also aims to expand its activity in Romania. Zacaria’s commitment to work with all its clients as business partners ensures that any Cummins expansion plans will be fully assisted and supported by Zacaria. The rental agreement entered into between Cummins and Zacaria initiating the beginning of this longterm relationship happily fell during the period that Cummins celebrated its 100year anniversary. Developed on a plot of land measuring 100,000 sqm, the three buildings of Southern Industrial Park offer 53,000 sqm of class A industrial space, fully equipped for activities such

74

as: storage & distribution, logistics, cross-docking and manufacturing. Acquired in 2015, this is Zacaria’s first investment in the Southern region of the country and comes as a response to the increasing demand in the area for premium industrial space. Located next to the Ford production facility, on Henry Ford Street, Southern Industrial Park provides quick access to the main roads towards Pitesti, Bucharest and the Bulgarian and Serbian borders. Being the only private industrial park

in Craiova that has Class A status and also the largest in the area, Southern Industrial Park quickly attracted large logistics and manufacturing companies. Currently, it houses 8 major clients, who occupy 75% of the built-up area.

Business partners not just Landlords The market leader of palletized freight distribution, Pall-Ex, this year, officially opened a new hub situated within Network Industrial Park, a project developed by Zacaria in Sibiu. Thanks to the new cross-docking terminal, which covers an area of 5,800 sqm, plus an additional 1,200 sqm of covered loading and unloading area, 24 trucks can be loaded and unloaded at the same time. As a result, Pall-Ex is able to efficiently transship over 3,500 pallets per day. This modern custom-built cross dock creates optimum pallet movement efficiency resulting in profitable cost efficiencies that Pall-ex can pass onto its clients. Over the last 9 years Pall-Ex, has grown from strength to strength, and Zacaria has been by their side always providing for all their expansion needs, a testimony to Zacaria’s personalized approach to resolving the needs of all WWW.TRANSILVANIABUSINESS.RO

Despite having a portfolio of more than 120 clients across Romania, the company is permanently involved in supporting its clients throughout their journey, in order that each client can reach its maximum potential. As a result of this approach, it’s not surprising that the majority of Zacaria’s clients choose to remain with Zacaria but to also grow within their industrial parks.

Lightening reaction time! When a factory in Alba Iulia burned down earlier this year, the local subsidiary of this foreign owned company turned to Zacaria to provide the space needed in the shortest possible time in order that the company could continue its production and meet the supply demands of its worldwide clientele. As a result of Zacaria’s day and night efforts to prepare the space needed for this company, production was up and running within days of the factory burning down, ensuring that the company’s clientele only suffered the shortest delay. So satisfied has this client of Zacaria’s been that from the initial 4,000 sqm rented, it now rents 10,600 sqm.

Location! Location! Location! Zacaria began investing in the residential sector as early as 2010 in Sibiu. The first two residential projects were: Valletta Valley, a centrally located gated complex consisting of 72 apartments in 4 blocks, fully sold, and the second, Valletta Lane, a chic 60 villa project, located on the outskirts of Sibiu, also fully sold. Later

Zacaria made the decision to develop residential projects in Bucharest, the first of which is located in the Sisesti area and comprises of 6 high rise blocks of 180 apartments of which 90% have, to date, been sold. In keeping with its overall investment and growth strategy, the second Bucharest project was acquired as a partly finished project, named by the initial developer as “American Village”. This 6.4-hectare project located in the highly soughtafter area of Pipera, has 72 villas and six blocks with 250 apartments, since acquisition Zacaria has been very involved in the long process of updating and reauthorizing the projects documentation, and modernizing the plans for the entire complex to reflect the desires of todays demanding market. At the beginning of 2019, the first steps towards finalizing the development of this complex were taken and sales of villas started at the beginning of Q2. Zacaria was happy to see that sales were far greater and faster than initially forecasted. 2019 also marked the launch of two new projects, a three-block complex with more than 120 apartments located in the fast-growing area in west side of Sibiu - Valletta Park, and a new residential complex developed in the historical center of Craiova - Valletta Towers which comprises of four blocks with approximately 250 apartments. Valletta towers will be a unique mixeduse whereby a beautiful and protected historical building will be transformed into a boutique mall of approx. 9,000 sqm and which can be privately accessed by the apartment owners via

meaning that finalizing the highway linking Constanta to Timisoara via Pitesti and Sibiu is of vital importance. Also, finalizing the promised highway between Iasi and Targu Mures would unlock what is probably the most attractive region in Romania in terms of labour force availability. Currently, the market is dominated by a handful of large players, notably CTP and WDP, but others are growing quite fast, such as Globalworth with Global Vision through their joint venture Global Industrial, by recently starting the development of a logistics park in the Chitila area, or P3 by launching a new project also in the Chitila area, which is their second project in Romania. Other developers, such as MLP and Element Industrial, are just setting up their projects on our market, choosing Bucharest as starting point for their investments.

MANAGING GROUNDBREAKING CHANGES “For now and the coming years, we want to focus on setting the grounds for an educated and well-informed attitude towards industrial and logistics real estate activities”. Laurențiu Duică, Director Industrial Agency and Board Member at Colliers International Romania provides an in-depth analysis on trends that are redefining the market in Romania. Which concepts and deliveries determined the market evolution in the last years? How was the market shaped by the players, acquisitions, extensions, new regional cities/development areas and the infrastructure improvements in certain locations? The industrial and logistics market has undergone some groundbreaking changes in recent years. Just in the last couple of years, the stock of modern industrial and logistics spaces has shot up from around 3 million sqm to 4.2 million. That’s a 40% growth with vacancy rates increasing marginally – it is still very much a

landlords’ market. The market remains focused on Bucharest to a big extent, as it received around half of the new deliveries in this period, with a significant share for the rest located in central and western Romania. Otherwise, it is difficult to include the impact of infrastructure changes into any thoughts about the future due to the irregular progress recorded by public works. That said, we recently published an analysis about the most active counties in Romania in terms of logistics operations. Interestingly, the top 3 outside Bucharest were Timis, Constanta and Alba, all located alongside Pan-European Corridor IV,

What do you expect for the next two years in terms of market attractiveness, country development potential in the region, new projects announced by developers or investments in certain sectors? Strictly in terms of macro/hard facts, Romania is still one the most attractive countries in the CEE, so it’s not just our subjective view as agents “selling” the image. Despite rising labour costs, the gap between productivity and wages remains one of the best in the region - with wages in industry at around one fourth of the EU’s average, the productivity per hour worked is around half of the level in the Union. When you consider the fact that Romania looks very much undersupplied, the industrial and logistics stock, which likely neared the 4.5 million sqm mark mid-2019, should expand at around 10% per year on average for the next several years, with just the rapid rise in consumption throughout Romania calling for an overhaul of the market, let alone the new demand coming from e-commerce. Otherwise, Romania is cementing its status as an auto manufacturing hub, with both major factories (Dacia and Ford) moving into a higher gear and suppliers continuing to flock to Romania. 77


INDUSTRIAL

Which industries are now driving the demand/growth and what might change in mid-term, which are the positive arguments for projects in Romania and also the challenging factors? As I stated a bit earlier, retail and e-commerce are at the forefront of demand for industrial and logistics spaces, with logistics and distribution operations also quite significant. Over the medium term, we would expect the latter to become more relevant, but also to see more industrial operations (including related to the auto industry). Romania’s positives hinge mostly on its EU membership status, on the fact that it still offers a juicy gap between costs and productivity and on an interesting pool of people with tertiary education. On the flipside, the challenges relate mostly to regulatory framework uncertainties (laws can change too frequently or without any hints prior)

and uneven progress with regards to structural reforms (from building highways to improving the quality of the education system). Fortunately, the issues can be addressed quite straightforward as they are not overly complex, meaning that pushing the economy forward can be simple enough for at least another growth cycle. How is Colliers through its expertise and team providing the best services for the market, how are the approach and strategy changing, which are the milestones in your activity so far and the objectives for 2019/2020? The industrial and logistics market is still very much a “Wild Wild West” scene in Romania, as neither the tenants, nor the landlords have a very well-structured strategy when it comes to the overall approach of all activities and aspects of this field. As class A warehouse spaces

that meet all legal requirements are on high demand and shall continue to be so in the coming years, there is little concern for aspects such as building an equitable environment and reaching a fair outcome for all involved. Quite often, when a specialized real estate broker is not involved in the process, one of the parties tries to take advantage of the other’s lack of expertise in certain areas, and this is why sometimes tenants find themselves trapped in costly deals, and landlords see themselves forced to accept unreasonable demands, to avoid losing business. The struggle of the broker is to establish a well-balanced environment where each party gets its fair share, in ideal conditions. Whether we are working with developers to identify ideal locations for new developments or with tenants interested to relocate, expand or access new areas, our goal is to educate the market one customer/collaborator at a time, and make sure that the outcome is satisfying for all involved, on a longterm basis. The financial outcome of our business endeavors is a priority, but not our main one. For now and the coming years, we want to focus on setting the grounds for an educated and wellinformed attitude towards industrial and logistics real estate activities, where each party understands, appreciates and respects the services rendered and has full confidence in involving the right advocates to ensure the success of their project.

to improve the image and potential of certain hubs in the country? On a central level, regulatory framework would be the number one priority, followed closely by cutting red tape. Both are issues which impact local businesses in general, not just those in the industrial and logistics field; for instance, in the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report, in terms of burden of government regulation, Romania ranks on a less than honorable position of 108th out of 140 countries. Yes, some EU member states rank below Romania, but this is not a position a fast-growing emerging country should be in. Otherwise, for local authorities, transparency should be a pre-requisite for any potential investment project; furthermore, investments in local infrastructure can do wonders to show an investor beforehand that the authorities are keen on attracting capital.

one year to another, as businesses evolve at a whopping rhythm; thus, landlords must find solutions to adjust to situations such as yearly increase of rented surfaces, special amenities for personnel and different layouts to fit custom made production pieces of equipment and storage options. The ongoing competition for blue collar workforce in the “hot” logistics areas has partially escalated from tenants to landlords, in the sense that they are now offering special facilities such as park transportation services, cafeterias and even on-site housing, in order to secure the personnel of their customers and thus, the occupancy of their warehouses. Do you see technology disrupting in a fast pace the business models of your clients and partners, can you forecast a few trends due to the impact of tech and IT&C related innovations?

As long as innovation retains its twoedge sword approach – both halting, but also creating new opportunities – Romania should be in top shape and so far, this looks to have been the case. Strictly related to industrial and logistics activities, we would see several trends shaping up: 1. automation and digitalization will accelerate, leading to leaner and more efficient organizations (which is a good thing given how tight the labour market is); 2. the rise of e-commerce will strengthen the case for last-mile logistics (strong case for the warehouses at the outskirts or within the city even for same-day delivery). Trends like adaptation to drone delivery or elastic logistics (i.e. aligning capabilities to shifting consumer demand using big data and AI) may be a bit far for Romania, but given how fast things are changing globally, they may arrive here sooner than we think.

How do the structure and the functions of logistic parks/industrial facilities are being transformed to better serve the tenants/client’s needs? The structural shifts and challenges of the economy and labour market that have marked the past years have gradually and somehow organically transformed the services and facilities provided by developers. Flexibility and adaptability are the main areas of focus in terms of design of the spaces, as warehouses have to fit a variety of industries and activities that require a certain level of personalization. Nowadays, the requirements of clients can substantially change from 79

Key milestones in Rustler’s evolution on the Romanian market are national coverage, internalization of specialized services and development of services on various properties type, from office to commercial, industrial and logistic, to hospitals, etc. What is Rustler’s perception view about Property and Facility Management Services, as an experienced international service provider? As we all know, there is a lack in the Romanian legislative structure, which should define and standardize the Property and Facility Management Services. Therefore, often the clients’ needs vs. expectations and legal compliance are not always concurring, or even met. Even though in the last years there was an improvement in the perception of clients and the final beneficiaries of Property and Facility Management Services scope of activities, the need of a basic SoW standard still exists, in order for all of us: clients – service providers, to have a common understanding. Our duty, as specialized service provider, is to be up to date with legal, technical, economical aspects and new technologies, in order to represent a source of knowledge for both clients and Romanian Real Estate Market. What advantages and benefits generate the mix of services offered? Are you planning to further extend the focus on Property Management, Project Management and Facility Management?

“WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO DEVELOPING A NEW P3 PARK ON THE NW RING ROAD” P3 Bucharest A1 is adding multifunctional features to ensure its leading role in the market, but P3 continues expansion around Bucharest with a new park and eyes on opportunities in other regions. More insights from Sinziana Pardhan, managing director Romania at P3. Which milestones in the evolution of P3 Bucharest A1 and P3 team in Romania exemplify best the success of P3 strategy in Romania? Since P3 made its first investment in Romania in 2015 by acquiring P3 Bucharest A1 Park, we grew the lettable area of the park from approximately 215,000 sqm to 380,000 sqm. P3 Bucharest A1 remains the largest logistic park in Romania and the only park in Bucharest that has a rail terminal. Last year, we made our first acquisition outside of the existing park and we are looking forward to developing a new P3 Park on the NW Ring Road location and to expanding our presence in other geographical locations as well. How do you characterize the current status of the market in Romania and in relation to other countries in the region? What have you seen changing more recently? With approximately 4 million sqm of modern warehousing stock, Romania still remains behind other CEE countries in terms of stock per capita. The market has been growing at a fast pace in the last 3 years becoming a more mature market, with good quality buildings and with a more balanced distribution of modern stock between Bucharest and other parts of the country. While we see the demand slowing down towards more sustainable levels, we believe that continuous growth in purchasing power and consumption as well as the development of road and rail infrastructure will provide great fundamentals for a strong development in the medium term of domestic as well as cross border logistics. How do the structure and the functions of a logistic park are being transformed to better serve

the tenants/client’s needs, what type of investments is P3 currently implementing for this objective? A logistic and industrial park needs to provide not only the warehousing space but also all the amenities that tenants need to perform their business in the most efficient and profitable manner. P3 Bucharest A1, with its high voltage station, rail terminal and access by public transportation (bus and rail) already provides a unique service offering to our customers. On top of that, we are currently working on a multifunctional project that will be delivered in Q4 2019 and it will be composed, in a first phase, of a hostel providing workers accommodation and a canteen with a 200 seat capacity. Other components from medical center to dry cleaning, as well as other services that tenants may require will be added in a future phase. The project was conceived with the goal to help our tenants alleviate the growing workforce limitations that they are facing and ensure better work environment and employee retention within our logistic park. Do you see technology disrupting in a fast pace the business models of your clients and partners, can you forecast a few trends due to the impact of tech and IT&C related innovations? Technological advance is having a growing impact on the business model and operations of our clients. From software that allows a more efficient organization of space and resources to automation and even robotization, technology is certainly changing the way our customers are operating inside our warehouses across Europe. New trends include the use of robots in everything from agriculture to manufacturing and logistics. The adoption of such technology is slightly slower in

Romania but we are still seeing more and more tenants exploring automation solutions for at least part of their businesses. As an immediate consequence, electric power requirements within the logistic parks will increase significantly. Additionally, the way space is utilized may change leading to specific requirements such as multi-level mezzanine platforms. Looking further into the future other game changing trends such as driverless trucks or drone deliveries, will lead to radical changes in warehousing features and layouts. With P3 Bucharest NW Ring Road to be developed, how do you see the evolution of P3 in Romania and key priorities to maintain a competitive market and products in the region? The acquisition last year of the new land plot on the NW Ring Road was the first step in fulfilling our strategy to continue our expansion around Bucharest, as well as in other parts of Romania. We believe in the strong fundamentals of the Romanian economy and in the country’s robust long-term growth perspectives. The development of the warehousing market, be it logistics or light production is closely influenced by infrastructure development which ensures both access to markets as well as to labor force and we hope to see a faster pace of modernization of Romania’s road and rail infrastructure. 85

DURKOPP ADLER ROMANIA, LEADER IN QUALITY Dürkopp Adler will invest more than 6.5 millions euro in the last four years. For a new production hall the company spent 800,000 euro, and another 700,000 euro have been invested in new production lines, for the factory in Mures county - Transylvania. The secret of Dürkopp Adler Romania success is easy to decipher: professional management, open to solutions that permanently increase productivity and a valuable team able to assimilate the most modern methods of work in fine mechanics. As a result of the large investments made, the Mureș county business’s productivity doubled in the last years. The company’s turnover exceeded 12 million euros in 2018. The estimated turnover for 2019 is 12.5 million euros. Main production consists of wear parts for sewing machines, sewing kits, bobbin cases, and knives. Both in bobbin cases and in knives, Dürkopp Adler is Europe’s #1 in terms of quantity and quality. To ensure the highest quality of the parts, Dürkopp Adler Romania has invested a lot in measuring and control equipment. For example, based on computer-aided design files, after measuring and/or scanning the product and making a 3D image, the product is computer-analyzed, with results of order thousandth of a millimeter. Considerably increasing productivity, through the acquisition of new, high 86

productivity machines, there was no need for a substantial increase in staff, in the recent years. However Dürkopp Adler Romania has almost 400 employees, with minor fluctuations, according to needs. A second important object of the Dürkopp Adler Romania is the production of transport systems, so-called conveyor belts. Technical advice for the partners and the complex solutions for accessing funds and modernization of the businesses come bundled with performant and efficient transport systems made in the factory in Mures county. Through the foreign partners, Dürkopp Adler Romania is working, in this segment, for the big auto industry and large companies in the food industry. At Sangeorgiu de Mureș factory, Dürkopp Adler builds systems for companies in the beer industry, metallurgy, furniture industry. The company offers its own solutions that are optimized to the needs of each client, fact that is appreciated by the partners. 2018 was a year of performance for Dürkopp, continuing the growth trend in recent years. In the last four years, total investments made

by Dürkopp Adler amounted to over € 6.5 million euros, of which investments in machinery and equipment 4.5 million euros. The financing of investments was made from own resources, financial and operational leasing.

„Currently we produce almost exclusively on computer numeric control machines, we almost exclusively use programming through digitization, the measurement of products is made by digitization, NC, in order to keep the influence of human error at a minimum. Qualified staff is hard to find on market, especially the programmers or adjusters, which are key personnel, but we tried to allure, through various facilities, the existing workforce on market and we tried to train this personnel”, states Johann Hermann, general manager of Dürkopp Adler Romania.

The Floor division exceeds in 2019 over 80 employees and it offers complete flooring solutions for all kind of provocative projects such as: parking lots, production zones in food or automotive industry, hospitals, laboratories and commercial spaces. One of the biggest challenge for our flooring division is one mall in Nice where over 15 members of the team are applying over 8,000 sqm of commercial flooring called Terazzo. The team is facing a true challenge because of a strict schedule and the strict applying procedure. The know-how achieved over the years and the latest technologies used by EMS, make us one of the top players from the floor industry in Europe.

Consequently, we are delighted to witness not only an increased number of residential projects, but also a sustained growth of both commercial and industrial developments as well as office projects, a consequence of the affordable prices in these areas and a reduced competition. Special attention from investors was given to industrial-type developments, which accounted for almost half of the total area traded, respectively 49%. In the industrial sector, the western part of the country accommodates most of the developments in the production area and will maintain its growth perspective considering the infrastructure of this region. „A number of projects are about to be initiated on land already purchased in the western part of the country, while new opportunities for the production centers in the region are being explored, taking into account the developed infrastructure as well as the available workforce, an increasingly available resource in the west of the country. Moreover, it is also important to mention a general tendency of the speculative land purchases which are starting to be replaced by acquisitions conditioned by obtaining the urban plan of the area and in many cases by procuring the building permit”, states Valentin Popescu, senior consultant in the Land Development department of CBRE Romania.

THE BREAKTHROUGH OF REGIONAL CITIES The long-awaited bloom of the regional cities looks promising in 2019. After the first 6 months we are already witnessing a share of two thirds of the Romanian land market traded outside the capital, according to the CBRE Romania report on the first semester “Romania MarketView”. The demand for land in both large and small cities has been constant since the beginning of the year, reaching almost one million square meters traded in the first half of the year. 88

Regional pulse In the western region, Cluj-Napoca continues to be the city with the most residential developments but also the one with the highest level of land price. Nonetheless, considering the great number of residential developments, Timisoara is also an interesting region. As a consequence of these developments, in the regional cities, projects like small commercial galleries are expanding, accommodating 4-5 fashion retailers/small DIY shops, pharmacies etc. “Considering the level of the whole country, the WWW.TRANSILVANIABUSINESS.RO


INDUSTRIAL

demand for land for food retailers will remain high, which will attract the attention of the investment market and towards this type of commercial galleries” warns Carmen Ravon, Head of Advisory and Transaction Retail, CBRE Romania. Approximately 131,000 square meters are expected to be delivered on the market of modern commercial spaces by the end of 2019, of which Bucharest is only part of a project of less than 5,000 square meters. Despite the fact that the most developed market for modern office buildings is still predominant in Bucharest, there is certainly a major interest for the big cities in the country, the most desired markets being Cluj-Napoca, Sibiu, Iasi and Timisoara. New office spaces are increasingly being sought in regional cities as an alternative to the capital, and in an increasing number of cases they are the first option for companies expanding or entering the Romanian market. Almost half a million square meters of projects, of which 45% are already under construction, will supplement the stock of modern office space in four of the most important regional cities: Iasi and Timisoara, each hosting one third, while Cluj and Brasov will accommodate the rest of it together.

New ecosystems The development of the office market in the important regional cities is supported organically with the development of local university centers that generate the workforce at the beginning of the career, but there is also the optimistic image that contributes to these developments that the economic indicators with impact on the national labor market transmit to the developers, thus gaining confidence in the country’s investment potential, including at the regional level. In this context, Cluj-Napoca is a case study that could be replicated nationally: the new deliveries from 2019-2020, which also include mixed projects, in which the office component is

integrated with the retail one and in some cases with the residential one, make Cluj-Napoca maintain its position as a leader of the regional cities. This is a direct consequence of the efficient ecosystem formed by the public administration, the academic environment and the business environment - a successful model that is applicable to other regional cities as well. Last but not least, a trend to be followed in 2019 and in the following years is the development of mixed projects, which is expanding not only among the developers in Bucharest, but also regionally, especially in

the large university centers such as Timisoara, Iasi or Cluj-Napoca. Mixed projects are relatively recent in the real estate market in Romania, but developers’ interest is clearly to increase the retail component of office or residential projects, where the entire area of the project allows this. Even though this type of project is generally very complex and is built in several phases that enables its penetration on the market, the mixed developments are a consequence of the developers’ efforts to offer that perfect mix between personal and professional life to the end user. 89

TETAROM, NEW DIMENSIONS FOR BUSINESS “The success of the prior projects -Tetarom I, II and III and the high demand of business facilities or spaces were the main ingredients for Tetarom development strategy. We are focusing mainly on increasing our business facilities offer, diversifying our services, business support and networking for our clients”, Octavian Fodor, deputy general manager, TETAROM SA, reveals the plans for the new milestones to be achieved by the renowned company. Which are the main projects initiated by TETAROM and under development for 2019-2020? Well, first of all, the inauguration of Tetarom I extension project. We have come to this point and now we are able to offer our investors more than 50 new office spaces and 17 warehouse modules, in our 3 new buildings. Second, for Tetarom III – we are in the process of signing contracts for the last 5 ha of available land there (last 2 plots). Tetarom III was from the start and will remain a 100% successful project among all Tetarom Industrial Parks. Third: Tetarom V Industrial Park in Luna, near Câmpia Turzii - our newest 90

project kicks off. We are set to go with the design and development. And last, but definitely, not least, TETAPOLIS our rising star. We are in the process of finalizing the feasibility study which will draw us an exact portrait of what we can build there, with what costs, help us identify the best financing sources and what is the estimated income and the return of investment. What determined TETAROM expansion and how would you define the evolution strategy for its business model? I believe that our greatest advantage in the development of Tetarom

Industrial Parks comes from the fact that Cluj-Napoca has a unique blend of qualified labor force that thrives in companies that are research and production oriented. This unique blend has transformed Cluj into a magnet for foreign and national investors alike, radically changing the local business landscape in a short period of time. Tetarom project began with a spontaneous evolution, dictated by market needs, but in the past years we were particularly focused on a systematic development approach. Each Tetarom Park harnesses a particular set of advantages, such as location, available workforce or road connectivity, thus making each individual Park suited for a specific target of clients. As far as our strategy for the next few years, from my point of view, the era of industrial parks as we know them is at its end, and I believe that now is the time to shift existing industrial parks to eco-industrial parks. This requires a very specific approach in terms of systematic expansion of industrial symbiosis, and we have already begun to take the first steps in this direction. Which are the major milestones achieved by TETAROM so far, its impact for the region and the benefits for the residents? Our present status is „fully operational” (in all 3 parks) and „developing” (the other 3: IV & V and Tetapolis Science and Technology Park). To summarize the milestones of Tetarom, so far, just let me give you the cold numbers. TETAROM I: 110 companies, over 3,000 jobs on 320,000 sqm - 100% occupied and operational. TETAROM II: over 2,900 jobs; 120,000 sqm - 100% occupied and operational. TETAROM III: over 7,000 jobs, 25 clients, 1,540,000 sqm - 97% occupied, 100% operational. How is the company involved in projects of the local community, what type of partnerships are implemented or what type of events do you support to stay in connection with the HR/ talent pool in the region?

through our partnership with Cluj universities we aim to foster academic reasearch and to sustain any start up or spin off project that shows potential in developing the local HR talent pool in the region, and stops the brain drain to western countries. This is the main reason for which Tetarom company was founded and still remains our top priority goal on a long term. Tetapolis, as any other successful STP, is focused solely on harnessing the local, regional and national qualified workforce, primarily focusing on R&D for large companies as our main clients. We can accommodate a growing number of R&D based startup companies as well and we can help them market their research or prototypes trough our IASP network. This is an incredible advantage for a young entrepreneur simply because, trough Tetapolis and via IASP, he gains instant access to a large international market. If you add to this the fact that we are constantly up to date in terms of R&D market needs as they arise trough IASP network, and we can offer a unique insight throughout the development phase of the project, you get the perfect recipe for a successful startup. Which are the factors that influence in your opinion the market evolution for Cluj-Napoca, the demand for industrial – logistic spaces? Cluj-Napoca has developed tremendously in the last decade. Local, national and foreign investors have practically invaded the county with new thriving businesses. There is a „hunger” of space, rental space, buildings and logistic spaces of all sort: new, old, refurbished, ready to lease, you name it! The companies expand continuously, hire new people, and accommodate them as they see fit. But judging by the office and logistic space demand and by renting fees and acquisition costs, I think there is a very good market for logistic areas, logistic and Techno - Industrial parks inside, as well as outside the city, all over the county. Cluj-Napoca has been for a few good years now a technical, university, social, cultural and business hub.

This concentration of working hubs will undoubtedly generate additional needs, and yes logistic space in particular is one of those needs. It stands to reason that if you continue to generate new business, eventually you will have to supply them in a faster more efficient manner. And I`m not talking solely of companies here, I`m also taking into account the local consumer base that has grown consistently, and it will continue to grow. With the expansion of the local airport, Cluj will become a logistical hub, perhaps the most important one in Transylvania. What do you expect for the next two years in terms of market attractiveness, country development potential in the region, new projects announced by developers or investments in certain sectors? Cluj-Napoca is well marketed among the competition inside the country or in the CEE countries. We know our competitors and without any lack of modesty we are doing great! We can compete with any European city in terms of business location and attractiveness, business incentives, local administration, evolution of the markets, economic and business trends and promotion. Cluj-Napoca and implicitly, Cluj County has a huge development potential because it has become an innovation pole of the entire country, a business model for the surrounding regions. The

number of companies established here, the number of newly created jobs, as well as the total value of attracted investments, speak for themselves. There are many new projects announced by investors in Cluj County and some of them are inside Tetarom Parks. I would mention just a few which are developed by some of our major clients: Robert Bosch, De’Longhi, Transilvania Constructii, Castolin Logistic, Agressione Group, Kadra, Energobit, Banca Transilvania, Emerson, Rebak Ingredients, Media Young, Cosmetic Plant, Carbia, Impro etc. They all build ready to lease facilities, innovation areas, and high end office spaces. Cluj County has so much untapped potential left. For us Tetarom was a lesson that we taught ourselves. It took us a while to understand the local particularities of the market, to correctly asses the potential of each region in Cluj County and to develop the right setup for each existing and future location. There is great value in workforce, location and specialization in every part of this County, thus the potential for rapid development exist, it just needs to be harnessed in a smart way, taking into account every single measurable local advantage available. Any investor that passes our door steps can find in Cluj County Council and Tetarom SA, two reliable partners and unconditional support for his business! 91

Arinvest Industrial Park -Iasi

THE FIRST LARGE PRIVATE DEVELOPMENT IN MIROSLAVA Project SVB announced the development of the first private industrial project in Miroslava, Iasi: Arinvest Industrial Park, in one of the most industrialized communities in the North-East of Romania, a new investment opportunity. The new multifunctional park will be developed on 7 hectares of private owned (greenfield) land, located near the European Road E583, on the main entry road to the city of Iasi. A dedicated roundabout has been already approved by the authorities, to be functional on E583 road for the first phase of the development. The concept of Arinvest Industrial Park integrates a mixed-use built area of ca. 30,000 sqm, organized in 3 major sections: the retail sector, near the E583, with high visibility to the road traffic (ca. 50,000 daily cars Project SVB started to focus on greenfield investment opportunities and the most reliable are located on the administrative area of the Miroslava village. Strategically situated in the South-West of the city of Iasi, Miroslava commune has become an explosive hub of residential and industrial developments in the region. The main reasons are the route of the ring road, the natural hills providing proper conditions for residential use and also the easy access to the city. In these conditions, choosing Miroslava for the future Arinvest Industrial Park was a normal choice. 102

The warehouses are divided into class A units (inner height of 10 meters) and regular units (inner height of 7 meters), to be available both to the small and big players active in the market. Arinvest Industrial Park will benefit from access to a public transportation with buses, to connect the park with the city of Iasi. Common areas will be arranged inside the park, such as a food court and stop shop retail services. This concept can be tailored, depending on then necessities of the future tenants.

areas of land, we started to look outside the city borders, especially at the West part of it. The Arinvest Industrial Park is located near this E583 main road in an already known area, mostly because of Delphi Diesel and Antibiotice factories, Miroslava Industrial Park 1 (public project) but also due to other retail players such as Metro, Dedeman or Arabesque. In any case, this proves to be the most promising area to be developed in the next years and to become the new Industrial District of Iasi”, explains Bogdan Buimac, the development manager of Arinvest Industrial Park. Another argument for the investment plan is that the constant demand from potential clients (existing tenants located in other facilities or new interested clients) was not fulfilled by the local developers. The project will be delivered in phases, but the first units are expected to be delivered in Q3 of 2020, after previous land improving works, scheduled for Q4/2019. “As this investment will open-up a new phase of the future Industrial District of Iasi, we are certain about the success of the project. This way, next to the project’s investor and the future partners, we could consider ourselves as founders of this new industry of Iasi”, concludes Bogdan Buimac, development manager, Arinvest Industrial Park.

Experienced vision This project is the result of more than 10 years of active experience in real estate of Project SVB, a company from Iasi. „Initially providing real estate services such as project management in constructions and urban valuations, Project SVB has started to concentrate, in the last 4-5 years, on the logistic and industrial potential of the city of Iasi.
