“While every new tenant is extremely important to us, the transaction of the year remains the signing of the contract with Alpha Bank Romania, a partnership assisted by JLL and CEE Estate, the asset management company of GTC Romania, whose support is very valuable. We are pleased that Alpha Bank Romania trusted us for moving part of its operations. This comes as a confirmation that the office real estate market is regaining balance after the pandemic and also as a sign of our growing reputation in the Romanian market”, stated Ziv Gigi, Managing Director of GTC’s operations in Romania.
