With the acquisition of Sofia Office Center, strategically located on the Tsarigradsko Shose – the city’s largest boulevard, international real estate investor Everty is expanding towards Sofia’s southeastern quadrant.
Properties in Sofia rank relatively cheap compared to other major cities in Europe. The Bulgarian capital is taking the last place in rankings by average price and the market has opportunities to grow. The opinion was expressed by Thomas Stanishev, Director of Galardo Real Estate, in an interview for the show "Club Investor'' of Bloomberg TV Bulgaria
The new office is located in the Balkan Business Center, near Tsarigradsko Shose Boulevard. The building is powered by 100% renewable energy sources and holds certificates of excellence in sustainable and green construction and energy efficiency.
