3 “trophy” boutique office buildings of Bucharest

occupied by big-name tenants

The niche market of small, chic office developments in Bucharest has lured some high-end tenants willing to pay up for a “trophy HQ”, ensuring landlords and investors long-term value, bigger incomes as well as full occupancy rate.

A recipe behind the success of boutique office buildings combines key location, disruptive architecture and facilities such as coffee-shops and restaurants, fitted out following the latest design trends.

Here is our top 3 preferences list among such projects in Bucharest:


Developed by a Greek private investor in the middle of Floreasca -Barbu Vacarescu hub, Ethos House distinguishes itself through an architecture inspired from elements of the Florentine Renaissance. The building is 100% leased to multinationals and has become a landmark in the area due to the retail amenities: Uanderful restaurant and Fratellini coffee-shop, both part of Fratelli group.

Palatul Universul

An abandoned building in downtown Bucharest, which hosted a printing house and the editorial team of “Universul” newspaper in the inter-war glory years of the Romanian capital, was rehabilitated by an investor seizing the historic flavor opportunity of the property. The estate has become a “creative hub” and hosts an interesting tenant mix: the headquarters of BBDO advertising agency, Cumulus architecture office, a co-working space – Talent Garden, a cocktail bar, a contemporary dance studio, an art gallery, Beans & Dots coffee shop, Apollo 111 Bar & Theater.

It hosts the HQ of Kaufland Romania, Apa Nova and Roeng, while at the ground floor functions one of the most appreciated restaurants in Bucharest, Kane Seasonal Bistro.
