More than 100 companies joined this year’s edition of the renowned contest
The annual awards of b2b Media, which single out the best employers and teams, saw an audience of official guests, journalists and finalists in the contest at an event held on Feb. 15th, 2022.
During the ceremony, the winners in more than 20 categories were announced. In a most competitive category focusing on innovative office environments and modern technological buildings, PARK LANE OFFICE CENTER rightfully received the EXCELLENCE IN OFFICE SPACE award.
Park Lane Office Center, a building that has already become emblematic, was completed in June last year and already houses the head office of Allianz Bulgaria who have gathered in a single location more than 600 employees from 9 different office spots. In early October, 2021, the building was acquired by SAP, a global software development leader. The acquisition has become the biggest investment deal in Bulgaria’s office sector for the past three years.
“As an investor, we attach particular importance to the construction of innovative office buildings which are abreast of time and reflect the latest trends in architecture, interior design, technology and amenities for their inhabitants. Office buildings are being adapted to the needs of their tenants – they must offer more services, areas for collaboration and green spaces. Increasingly, we are going to see offices reminiscent of the atmosphere at home. The needs of employees are the top priority in interior design development and space distribution”, said Kalina Ivanova, Leasing Manager at Park Lane Developments.
The building has a key location and has been designed with higher than the usual ceilings at 3.10 m, as well as with large windows aimed to provide plenty of daylight that is crucial for a pleasant process of work. The perception of expanse and freedom is complemented also by the considerable separation distance from neighboring buildings and by green areas dedicated to recreation. Terraces on each floor with splendid vistas to Vitosha add to the comfort and convenience of the tenants.
The modern concept of the building is the work of Planning Architectural Studio with chief designer architect Ilian Iliev – a company which has designed some of the biggest commercial buildings in Bulgaria, in partnership with Chapman Taylor from the United Kingdom, world leader in public building design. The interior design is the work of VIArchitects – an architectural studio with a series of awards for international projects of commercial and residential properties.
