despre noi

ANA TOWER, one of the ANA HOLDING member companies, was established in 2007 and is the developer of a real estate project covering 53,000 sqm in the District 1 of Romania’s Capital

The idea to build a Class A office tower as the highest building in Bucharest, the capital of Romania, appeared in 2007.

Ana Holding, the mother company, owns the appropriate land, placed in a very good location, in the business area of the city, next to five stars hotels, exhibition centers, business centers, governmental buildings, airports and railway stations, main boulevards. In order to develop this project the Mother Company, Ana Holding, has established a project company called ANA TOWER.

The first drawings of the Tower were made by an American architecture company and the Building Permit has been obtained from the Romanian authorities in 2008.

The building is planned to have 24 floors above the ground, being higher than 100 m. It provides 33,000 sqm. of office space, approximately 1,300 sqm. for each floor. Three parking levels of 450 cars will service the building.

Ana Tower shall be built upon a new concept of structure, with no limitation imposed by internal pillars, giving the user the possibility to make a fully flexible partition. The standard floor allows multi – tenant use, without the downside of increasing the add-on factor.

The Tower includes a cafeteria on the ground floor and some retail spaces. In the same time, the building proves its long term commitment to community, being recommended by sustainability, water and energy efficiency, optimal use of resources, innovation in design and indoor environmental quality. In this regard the building is running for a Gold Green Building certification; this will be the first Gold Green Building in Romania.
