The fact that the Park is located in downtown Bucharest and not in city outskirts provides the Park the unique advantage sought after by multinational companies in Romania. Withour current development projects, AFI Tech Park office project in Bucharest, AFI Brasov mall and offices, and soon to start our first residential project in Bucharest AFI City, AFI Europe continues its expansion in Romania”, said David Hay, CEO AFI Europe Romania.
The total investment for AFI Tech Park 1 is of over EUR 30 million.
