April 14, 2021. O1 Properties has signed an agreement with the Russian brokerage company, Otkryitie Broker for lease of space in the Silver City business centre in Moscow. R&B Consulting acted as consultant for the transaction.
Otkryitie Broker will occupy 3,500 square metres of office space on the 3rd and 7th floors at Silver City. The move is scheduled for the third quarter of 2021.
Artem Oboimov, HR Director of Otkryitie Broker, said: “The coronavirus pandemic has dramatically accelerated transition to digitalization of business processes and remote working. Nevertheless, a comfortable office with convenient transport accessibility remains a priority for us and our staff. We have therefore decided to open a new office at the Silver City business centre. We chose Silver City because of its location and because it lets us create an environment where our staff can work on strategic issues more effectively and feel at home. I am confident that our team will be delighted with the choice that has been made.”
Pavel Barbashev, Chief Commercial Officer of O1 Properties, commented: “We welcome our new tenant to Silver City. Advanced internal infrastructure of the business centre makes it a building that meets today’s needs, with a range of on-site services that save our tenants’ time. We see that companies are keen to provide a comfortable office environment for their staff. Nowadays , this goes beyond transport accessibility and high-quality design. It also requires provision of various social functions near the workplace, which represents a major advantage in comparison with remote work.”
Anastasia Stenyaeva, Managing Partner of R&B Consulting, said: “As consultants, we appreciate deals that confirm and strengthen long-term partnerships. Open Broker has moved from Vivaldi Plaza to the Silver City business centre, thus remaining in the O1 portfolio. The main goal of the move was to expand office space while retaining quality and level of the business premises. I am confident that we have addressed this task in the best possible way.”
