The third building, Matrix C, which received a building permit this year, will be the latest extension of the most modern and sustainable business center in Zagreb. Just like the previous two, Building C provides an innovative office space while maintaining a high environmental standard for a variety of international tenants.
The first two buildings of the Matrix Office Park, located on the outskirts of the business district of the Croatian capital, were completed in 2019 and 2020, and currently offer about 21,280 m2 of modern, sustainable business offices, retail space, warehouses and parking spaces suitable for rent. international companies. Avenue Mall and Avenue Center in Zagreb, with office space and Class A facilities near the city center and a shopping center at one of the busiest intersections in Croatia are another example of the company's successful presence on the Croatian market.
After the success of the first two buildings in Matrix Office Park - both with 95% leased space - GTC has decided to further expand its presence in the Zagreb market by developing Building C. The new space will provide approximately 10,500 m2 of gross lease area with high quality office space, retail bicycle storage, other services and facilities, and will provide underground as well as above-ground parking for 250 vehicles and power sources for electric vehicles.
Sustainability and minimizing environmental impact are important aspects of the company's business, so GTC continuously invests a lot of effort in ensuring the ecological construction and sustainable functioning of its real estate. The new Matrix Office Park building is no exception. Buildings A and B have already received LEED Platinum certificates, expanding GTC's portfolio of 'green' projects. The new building should become another sustainable business center for many Croatian and international tenants. Upon completion, Matrix C will receive DGNB Gold certification.
- I am extremely glad that our Croatian portfolio is growing so fast and showing outstanding results in the Central and Eastern European market. The new building in a modern business complex such as the Matrix Office Park is a great opportunity for GTC to further expand and become a leader in the development of the real estate market in Zagreb as well as the implementation of modern trends. The new building is also an excellent opportunity to further strengthen the respectable relationship with our tenants and provide them with sustainable solutions, more necessary today than ever, in every aspect of life and business - said Arn Willems, CEO of GTC Croatia.
Matrix Office Park already attracts very well-known, international tenants from various industries - from the fashion, retail, financial services and IT sectors. Many of them want to expand further within the Matrix Office Park. Thus, Matrix Office Park will become a truly modern business center for various sectors and industries that offer their tenants maximum comfort and security. Completion of the building is planned for the second quarter of 2023, when it is expected to be ready for the arrangement of the lease space.
