Mihai Păduroiu, CEO Office Division One United Properties, about the office future and trends in 2022

During the panel discussion of the gala, Mihai Păduroiu underlined:

“The pandemic has substantially changed the priorities on the agenda of any tenant. Before the pandemic, companies were cost-oriented and looked at offices from that perspective in the first place. The pandemic put the number of certifications and the quality of office space on the agenda of tenants.”

He also said that the developer is still interested in building only mixed projects:

“It takes flexibility and creativity to be able to accommodate the new requirements of companies. It is an accelerated maturation from which the employees have the most to gain and will receive more attractive offices.”
