One United Properties announces the lease agreement with Superbet, the largest omni-channel sports betting and gaming operator in Romania, for an 8.206 sqm of office space in the One Cotroceni Park building.
Superbet will thus move its offices within One Cotroceni Park, the largest urban regeneration project in Bucharest developed by One United Properties in the Cotroceni area, near Academia Militara. The new office spaces are designed to provide a higher degree of safety and comfort for employees, on a generous area and access to many facilities, as well as a direct connection to Academia Militară metro station, a premiere for an office project in Bucharest.
One Cotroceni Park phase 1 project has currently exceeded a rental rate of 72% and will be delivered at the end of this year. At the same time, the developer started the works for the second phase of the office component of the project.
One Cotroceni Park will also include a residential component with approximately 754 apartments, which will be developed in several phases.
“The main reason behind our decision to move to a new headquarters is related to the desire to bring under the same roof the entire Superbet Group team in Bucharest, which currently operates in three different locations. Then, the advantages of the new workspace are obvious – it is a new building, which ensures air quality, generous spacing, a greater number of parking spaces, access to many facilities, proximity, and flexibility in terms of transport etc. Last but not least, the new location supports Superbet’s strong recruitment campaign for IT-high tech talents, given that we will be close to relevant academic communities – the Faculty of Electronics, Polytechnic, but also other local and international tech companies”, said Cristian Gheorghiță, Group Employee Communications Director.
Beyond the pragmatic reasons, the decision is closely linked to the philosophy and culture of Superbet Group, focused on greater collaboration and creativity. “It will be more of a meeting space, not only for the Romanian team but also the international teams of the group. No one will have an office of their own, it will be a place for social gatherings and town halls”, he also added.
One United Properties is on the point of obtaining a WELL HEALTH AND SAFETY certification for all its office buildings, which is the most rigorous certification focused on employee and workplace benefits – such as air quality, access to sports, mental comfort, light, water quality, comfort at work, access to healthy food etc. One Cotroceni Park mixed project is designed in a holistic approach of Live / Work / Play type, offering both employees and future residents integrated facilities, from commercial spaces, retail or sports, and outdoor spaces. The project will be developed on an area of 5.8 ha: 20,000 sqm allocated to retail spaces, 74,000 sqm GLA dedicated to the business park, and a residential component with approximately 754 apartments.
In 2019, Superbet and Blackstone Group, world’s largest private equity fund announced a €175m strategic equity investment in Superbet by funds managed or advised by Blackstone’s Tactical Opportunities business.
