The investment company “Galaxy Investment Group” started the construction of a new office building in Plovdiv. The beginning with a symbolic turn of the first sod was made by Konstantin Boyadzhiev, director “Business development” in the company and the Mayor of Plovdiv Ivan Totev.
The project “Office Park Plovdiv” includes two buildings, specially designed to meet the needs of the companies in the outsourcing and IT sector. They cover the highest quality demands and will offer large offices.
It is expected to make up for a deficiency of high quality offices in the city.
“Office Park Plovdiv” will be located on av.“Svoboda”, near The Mall Plovdiv and it will be a complex of buildings with gross floor area of 15 400 sq.m. and total capacity for 2000 people.
The investor plans the construction to be made in two stages; the first stage of the complex will be finished by the beginning of 2016. It will consist of 7 floors – 6 floors and a ground floor.
According to Konstantin Boyadzhiev the investment in a new office building will revive the economy in the city and will aid for the creation of many new jobs. “Having in mind the advantages of Plovdiv as an attractive destination for the investors, we consider this trend for a growing interest from IT and outsourcing industry will be stable”, he added.
In the last 10 months we definitely observe growing interest of these sectors in “the city of the hills”, commented the experts. This is due to the good infrastructure, highly qualified specialists, the central location and in the same time the prices of the rents, which are more competitive compared to those in Sofia. From the other hand, Plovdiv is appraised as a city with a better quality of living than the capital – less traffic, better transportation, the city will be an European capital of culture in 2019.
For the new project the plans are to have tenants, looking for first class offices, with flexible spaces, satisfying the European standards. That is the reason why “Office Park Plovdiv” has a communicative location, open space office premises, and technical infrastructure in green urban area. The location next to The Mall Plovdiv and the Rowing Canal, the greenest zone in Plovdiv city, makes an unique mix of comfort and environment for the future users of the building. The expectances are the spaces in the building to be rented for offices of companies, choosing Plovdiv for a place to develop and expand their businesses. So far “Galaxy Investment Group” has proven its effective cooperation with outsourcing and BPO industry. Examples of these are the companies Sofica and Scalefocus which preferred to rent office spaces in Royal City Business Park, managed by the company.
