The credit bureau UAB Creditinfo Lietuva, the world’s leading insurance services and consulting company UADBB Marsh Lietuva and the international law firm CEE Attorneys have joined the community of one of the most sustainable business centres in Lithuania – FLOW, located at Lvivo g. 21A. The companies have signed long-term rental agreements for more than 1,100 square metres of office space. According to the concluded transactions, the office of Creditinfo Lietuva will be located on the 19th floor and the offices of Marsh Lietuva and CEE Attorneys on the 7th floor of the building.
According to Giedrius Brūzgė, Director of EIKA’s Asset Management Department, the last quarter of the year was not very active in the office rental market. ‘In the second quarter of this year, only 14,300 square metres of office space was rented in Vilnius, while in the first quarter 33,700 square metres was rented. The situation shows that tenants are more cautious in their relocation plans and are not in a hurry to sign rental agreements.’ The three rental transactions in one business centre show that even in calmer market times, solid companies are still interested in high-quality working environments, with sustainable and innovative solutions.
Aurimas Kačinskas, CEO of Creditinfo Lietuva: ‘The decision to move to the new FLOW Business Centre was taken in line with the strategy of our group of companies to develop a sustainable business. We aim to organise every activity and process in a socially responsible and long-term sustainable way, taking into account the environment and energy efficiency, and the rational use of other resources. By locating our new office in the very centre of Vilnius, we will not only create more comfortable working conditions for our employees, but we will also be closer to our customers.’
According to Inga Kostogriz-Vaitkienė, Managing Partner of CEE Attorneys, the search for the new office was focused on sustainability and a positive human experience in the workplace. She explained:
‘When choosing an office for our growing team, we were looking for practical and sustainable solutions – and that’s exactly what we found at FLOW: modern, efficiently used spaces; a healthier environment tailored to the comfort of employees and customers; architectural and communal solutions that conserve natural resources; a convenient location in the city and very good accessibility. We want to be here for the long term, so we looked at the relevance of the solutions not only for the here and now, but also for the future. The implementation of the project in accordance with the BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating convinced us that this is a place where we want to work and invite our customers and partners.’
Currently, almost 7,000 square metres of office space is rented in the Business Centre. The building will house Elektrum Lietuva, an independent electricity supplier; Turicum, a business consulting company; 12, a restaurant; Baltic Amadeus, a company that develops unique IT solutions and provides consulting on digitalisation; Omberg Group, a real estate development company, and the operator of a salt room and massage parlour.
Real estate development company EIKA has built commercial objects in Vilnius such as multifunctional complex Live Square on Gediminas avenue, the EIKA Business Centre on A. Goštautas st., 135 on Žalgiris st. and Pupa shopping centre in the Pilaitė district. Recently, the company has started the development of the Jasinskio 2 business centre in the neighbourhood of Tauras Hill in Vilnius.
