Cushman & Wakefield Echinox has been commissioned to manage Mendeleev Office 5, an office building recently delivered in downtown Bucharest, by Akcent Development.


This is the fourth office building that has been taken over under the management of Cushman & Wakefield Echinox, the Asset Services department being responsible for the daily administration of the building, tenant relationship management, operational supervision, financial services and landlord reporting, through on-site specialists and at the company’s headquarters, coordinated by Mihaela Petruescu, Partner Asset Services.

Mendeleev Office 5 is a boutique office building, which revitalizes a historic area of the city, being located between Piaţa Romană and Calea Victoriei. The building has easy access to public transport, the Piata Romană subway station and numerous bus lines being located 5 minutes walk away, the area being also well-known for the diverse offer of restaurants, cafes, hotels and cultural spaces, such as the Romanian Athenaeum, the Central University Library or the National Museum of Art of Romania.

The building has a rentable surface of 4,500 square meters distributed on the basement, ground floor and eight upper floors. The underground parking has 50 places and is equipped with bicycles facilities and electric charging stations. The design of the building facilitates the access of the natural light, and the exterior filtering golden facade fits in the profile of the area. The project includes walkable terraces, intelligent integrated technologies, hybrid climate-control system architecturally designed and integrated, heat insulation, motorized windows, low energy consumption, and the terraces on the 3rd and 8th floors stimulate the tenants' creativity and offer a panoramic view of the centre of Bucharest.

The occupancy rate of the building is over 60% at delivery, among the tenants being financial consulting, PR and marketing or construction companies (Jazz Communication, Tud Investment Consulting, Aktor, Skin Media). Advanced discussions are for the 6th and 7th floors, therefore only the first floor and the ground floor – suitable for two commercial spaces fitting, are available for lease.

Mendeleev Office 5 is developed by Akcent Development, which also owns Eminescu Offices building, managed by Cushman & Wakefield Echinox, and Rosetti Tower building.

Mihaela Petruescu, Partner Asset Services, Cushman & Wakefield Echinox: “Our clients’ trust and our team’s determination to deliver premium professional quality services have recommended us to be appointed property managers of the Mendeleev Office 5 project. It has been an ongoing sustained work during 2019, in which our team was involved in the two office projects, Eminescu Offices and Mendeleev Office 5, along with the owner, therefore our mandate came naturally later this year.”
