“The workplace has been the main topic on the agenda during these days. We expect companies to establish clusters in key locations from the big cities to have employees working close to home” – Mihai Paduroiu, CEO, Office Division, One United Properties
What type of adaptive measures the company / your project(s) needed? What were the lessons of this period?
Our management team focused on two main directions: helping the medical system and adapting the workflow to assure business continuity. One United Properties has succeeded to raise 300,000 EUR together with individual shareholders and other partners, the sum being donated for the fight against COVID-19. We have limited social interactions as much as possible and we have adapted using various tools that allowed us to be in constant contact with colleagues and ensure a productive workflow during this period. Beginning with 15th of May we resumed our activity at the office, implementing all the necessary sanitary and safety measures.
What is the status of your current project(s) and investments planned for 2020-2021?
Constructions works have continued on all our sites, with all the necessary safety measures being implemented. On the office sector we have three construction sites: One Tower, part of One Floreasca City mixed project on the former Automatica plot at the crossroads of Floreasca and Mircea Eliade, One Cotroceni Park, on the former Ventilatorul plot, on Academia Militara metro station and One Verdi Park, on Barbu Vacarescu boulevard, just across the park with the same name. All of these are mixed projects, combining numerous functions and facilities for a plus of quality living and smart working. One Floreasca City will be delivered at the end of this year, while delivery for One Cotroceni Park and One Verdi Park is scheduled for next year. In addition, One United Properties has another three residential construction sites opened: One Herastrau Towers, on Nicolae Caramfil street, Neo Timpuri Noi in Bucharest and Neo Mamaia, all of them going on as scheduled. The company also plans to start construction sites for Neo Floreasca Lake and One Peninsula this year, and as our developments are authorized, we will provide details about them.
Which are the advantages of your business and products, going forward? What are your expectations from the public sector, state projects to support future business?
One United Properties launched in 2018 the office division with the aim to innovate the classic real estate developments. Our concept consists in flexible office spaces, which facilitate access to green areas and offer a variety of services regarding the health and well-being of employees, built according to the latest technological standards. Such top-quality developments, with numerous amenities and services, will be in demand on the long run. The work from home model is suitable for long term performance. The flexibility and adaptability of new, modern and certified office spaces represent a main benefit in the process of re-calibrating the work environment to the new reality. As for the public sector, infrastructure needs urgent investment to create a healthy foundation for foreign direct investment, which generates value in the local economy and new jobs.
What transformations you expect in your sector, their effects for the Romanian economy and in a regional perspective?
The workplace has been the main topic on the agenda during these days. The flexibility and adaptability of new, modern, and certified office spaces represent a main benefit in the process of re-calibrating the work environment to the new reality. The mixed projects offering living, working and entertainment options will be in big demand in the near future, making it easy to work near home. We expect companies to establish clusters in key locations from the big cities to have employees working close to home.
