Currently, Convergys has about 150 employees in its center in Timisoara, which was opened in 2011 to provide German language services. The new offices, which will be operational by early summer, have the capacity to support more than 500 jobs, according to a press release issued by Iulius Mall.
Openville Timisoara will be inaugurated in the fourth quarter of this year, with the completion of the first development phase. The project, which integrates the current Iulius Mall Timisoara, will include office, retail, park and entertainment functions. The first stage of development will include: 100,000 square meters of A-class offices, an additional 47,000 sqm of retail space, a park, an underground passage for car traffic and over 1,500 new parking spaces.
At the time of completion of the first phase, the office component will include an area of 50,000 sqm in operation (UBC 1, UBC 2 and UBC 3) and another 50,000 sqm under construction (UBC 0). So far, two office buildings have been completed, with a total area of 31,000 sqm. Another 19,000 square meters are under construction and will be completed this year. The Openville project is carried out by Iulius and Atterbury Europe, representing an estimated investment of more than 220 million euros. (source: zf.ro)
