The total surface of these projects is 70,580 sq m GLA. Thus, CBRE's local property management portfolio reached 770,000 sq m, of which 410,000 sq m are in office, and 360,000 sq m in retail properties. This deal is a premiere, as this is the first time when NEPI Rockcastle, the largest private real-estate owners and developers on the local market, outsources its property management services. The South African investment fund, NEPI Rockcastle, mostly known as the largest owner of shopping centres in Romania and CEE, also holds an impressive office buildings portfolio, located in Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, and Timișoara.

The three properties that will be managed by CBRE are landmark office projects on Bucharest's real estate market: Floreasca Business Park has 36,470 sq m and is located on Calea Floreasca, The Lakeview has a total GLA of 25,907 sq m and is located on Barbu Văcărescu Boulevard, and Aviatorilor 8 has 8,203 sq m GLA and has a key location in Piața Victoriei right next to the Romanian Government Building.

CBRE recently moved their offices to Aviatorilor 8, one of the most modern buildings situated in the capital's CBD (Piața Victoriei, Piața Charles de Gaulle area).

"CBRE and NEPI Rockcastle already have a strong and strategic partnership that started back in 2015, when we were apointed as the leasing agent for City Business Centre, in Timișoara. The fact that NEPI Rockcastle trusted us, and decided to outsource for the first time its office property management to CBRE, is a proof of the very good cooperation between our companies and the commitment of our team to provide the highest standard of service to three excellent buildings. The three office properties in Bucharest under this deal are indeed landmark properties, with strong tenant mixes, and we believe that with the right property management tools they will increase their value in the marketplace", stated Luiza Moraru, MRICS, Head of Asset Services Division for Central and Eastern Europe, CBRE. "Moreover, this deal consolidates our position as the leading property management company in Romania. Our local team put a great effort into achieving this level of expertise and benefited from the help of our worldwide teams. Through our property management services we go beyond the mere functional property services, as we aim to make every building that we manage stand out, and become unique in its marketplace. The signing of this partnership is the culminating point of an excellent period for our Asset Services Department. In 2018, we were focused on strengthening our value-adding and differentiating services: hospitality and customer experience for retail, community management for office and specialty leasing. One of the biggest successes in 2018 registered by the local Asset Services Department was that it outgrew itself by 100%. We are eager to further proof the unparalleled quality of our property management know-how by managing NEPI Rockcastle's office portfolio in the best possible way", added Mrs. Moraru.

"The foundation of a solid business relationship comes from knowing your partner, and the quality that it has to offer. CBRE is a leading global real estate consultant, and we had the opportunity to seeing how they work on many segments. We chose them for outsourcing the property management of our office portfolio in Bucharest because we have complete confidence that they will perfectly conduct the operational and property management activities, thereby adding to their value", added Marius Barbu, Asset Director NEPI Rockcastle.
