The mixed-use project has a shopping center of 45,000 sqm GLA and two A-class office buildings with 25,000 sqm.

The Green certificate offers AFI Brasov tenants a series of benefits among which: the efficient use of LED lighting solutions in order to increase energy efficiency and minimize the “heat island” effect, the use of materials with recycled content and low emissions, and the reuse of up to 75 percent of the construction waste generated on-site due to sustainable practices, improved air quality through increased filtering, over 20% reduction in energy costs over a baseline building or 90% of the regularly occupied area will have access to unrestricted views.

AFI Europe Romania has inaugurated its AFI Brasov in October last year, after a total investment of €148 million.
