Business Construct: Projects of the year: 10 investments that have moved the market. OCTAGON was involved in the construction of three of the projects

Two shopping centers developed by NEPI, five office projects stretching over  110,000 sqm, a road passage, a multifunctional hall and a  DYI store, are ten of the most important real estate investments delivered this year, on a market in which large projects worth hundreds of millions of euro missed, Business Constructor writes. OCTAGON CONTRACTING & ENGINEERING was involved in the construction  of three of these projects: Hermes Business Campus, Green Court Bucharest and Green Gate.

The cumulated investments in these projects reached almost 350 million euro, while a shopping center,  such as AFI Palace Cotroceni from Bucharest cost 300 million euro and the investment in Palas shopping mall from Iasi exceeded 250 million euro. Two of these investments, the office projects Green Gate and AFI Park, benefited from banking financing, which shows that the financial institutions keep being prudent in granting loans for construction.

Under these circumstances, two public projects have also reached the top of investments:  the underground passage Mihai Bravu from Bucharest and the new Multifunctional Hall from Cluj, as well as a Dedeman store, a 16 mil. euro investment,  built in Colentina.

  • The Multifunctional Hall from Cluj- with a capacity of 7,200 seats; investment: 16 mil. euro.
