(SOFIA, BULGARIA – Jan. 17, 2011) – Developer Tishman International Companies, a leading international commercial real estate development and management company, has signed a four year lease for office and warehouse space in the Logistics Center of the new Sofia Airport Center (SAC), located at 64 Christopher Columbus Boulevard in Sofia, Bulgaria.
Antalis Bulgaria EOOD is a fully-owned subsidiary of Sequana Capital, the largest European group in the distribution of communications support materials (print and office paper, visual communication and packaging.) Antalis, which has 6,900 employees and more than 230,000 customers around the world, will occupy 2,200 square meters (23,680 square feet) of office and warehouse space.
“The decision by Antalis to locate in the Logistics Center is a testament to the facility’s excellent location for logistics operations, its high quality construction, and the excellent property management services we provide,” said Tishman International Chairman Alan D. Levy. Tishman’s management services include 24-hour security, snow removal and pest control services. “The project has also experienced tremendous interest from leading global tenants because of the flexible design, which allows us to accommodate a wide range of companies.”
Antalis’ operations will be located in Logistics Building B3 of SAC. The flexible, mixed-use business park containing Class A offices, warehouse and logistics offices won the Building of the Year Award for 2009 in its category. The building—developed and managed using Western European and U.S. standards—is fast becoming the premiere international business park in Bulgaria.
The Class A office building developed by Tishman, adjacent to the Logistics Center, will be the first commercial LEED-certified office building in Bulgaria when it achieves LEED “silver.” The only other LEED-certified building in Bulgaria is the U.S. Embassy in the capital city of Sofia.
The landlord was represented by Bozhidar Zahariev, Tishman’s in-house Leasing Manager. The tenant was represented by Plamen Dimitrov.
