October 11, 2012, Sofia. Sofia Airport Center which was officially opened today, is Bulgaria’s first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) commercial development. The project, when built out, will consists of 180,000 square meters of Class A office space and 28,000 square meters of logistics and warehouse space, which is already operational and 100 percent occupied. The construction of a hotel with 175 rooms and new office and logistics buildings are planned for the future.

"Tishman International is a leader in innovative technologies and sustainable development and has always taken care of its tenants in the best possible way", said Alan D. Levy, Chairman of Tishman International. Our Bulgarian project is a model for high-quality construction not only in the Eastern-European region, but in Europe as a whole. In Bulgaria we have a well-trained team, under the directory of Julian Edwards, Managing Director – Europe for Tishman International, which worked very hard, so that now we can all be proud with Sofia Airport Center", he added.

All tenants who sign Letter-of-intent by the end of the year in the new business center will be able to use the complimentary services of professional architects and will be provided with furnishings for their multipurpose space at no additional charge. "This is an integral part of our program to stimulate companies to offer zones for relaxation, as we believe this will increase the level of motivation and creativity of the employees", said Mrs. Olga Stoichkova, SAC’s Leasing Manager.

“Reducing energy consumption is of extreme importance to commercial buildings in the capital, not to mention the fact that it preserves the environment. I am conviced that business parks such as Sofia Airport Center are only the beginning of a new construction era in the capital, one that will contribute to a cleaner and nicer city. "Tishman is giving us a good lesson, one that we should learn", said the Mayor of Sofia, Jordanka Fandakova.

SAC incorporates environmentally friendly materials with state-of-the-art technologies to reduce operating costs as much as 30% and provide a comfortable, healthy environment for employees. Sustainable features include an energy-efficient Variable Air Volume (VAV) HVAC system, controlled by an automated building management system (BMS); advanced fiber optics; abundant natural light through open atriums and double-gazed windows; height, 2.85-meter ceilings; and solar shading on building exteriors to reduce heat and solar gain.

Tishman has also established an onsite sports facility within the Logistics Center of SAC. The fully equipped Dance and Aerobics Studio, which is open to all SAC employees and community residents, offers a variety of after-work training classes, including zumba, tae-bo, yoga and Bulgarian national dances.

“This technologically advanced commercial development features Western European/U.S-style onsite management services, which has attracted a roster of prestigious international companies that have chosen SAC for their regional or national headquarters”, noted Julian Edwards.
