Globalworth, the leading office investor in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), said on Tuesday that it signed an agreement with e-commerce leader eMAG to set up its headquarters in the Globalworth Square building in Bucharest. The deal targets a space of 10,000 sqm GLA and marks the largest new lease contract signed this year in the office real estate landscape in Romania.

Following the agreement with eMAG, the building reached a 100% occupancy rate.
“eMAG is one of the biggest players in the e-commerce sector and a company that has unlocked so many business verticals from grocery delivery and food delivery from restaurants to a marketplace for selling used phones. To be welcoming them into our business community is an inspiration on so many levels,” said Ema Iftimie, Head of Leasing at Globalworth Romania.
