Cushman & Wakefield begins leasing Adamastor Building in Parque Das Nações
5 May, 2008, Lisbon
Global real estate consultant Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) announced today that Carl Zeiss Vision Portugal will be the first tenant of the Adamastor building in Parque das Nações in Lisbon which was developed by Imopólis,
Designed by the architect Regino Cruz and completed in 2007, the Adamastor building has 12,200 m2 of offices, divided between two 14-floor towers. At the present time, this is one of the largest office buildings available to let in Lisbon, and Cushman & Wakefield has been selected by Imopólis as its exclusive leasing agent.
Carl Zeiss, which was founded in 1846, is one of the world’s biggest lens manufacturers and is present in 30 countries. The company also has production centres in Europe, Central and North America, and Asia. The company will now occupy 640 m2 of office space in this building.
The need to move to new offices arose due to the merger of two companies, Sola and Winter Group, which had offices in two different locations in the Greater Lisbon area – Setúbal and Quinta da Beloura.
According to Gonçalo Empis of Carl Zeiss Portugal, “The choice of the Adamastor building was due to its location, good accessibilities, proximity to public transport and the visibility and corporate image provided by the building. We are confident that this new space fits in with the concept of modernity, dynamism and prestige that are the guiding principles of Carl Zeiss Vision Portugal.”
According to Amílcar Marques da Silva of C&W’s Office Agency team in Portugal, “Adamastor’s strong image and modern facilities are appropriate to the current needs of companies, and has attracted great interest from occupiers who are currently looking for high quality space in Lisbon. The building’s flexibility and the developer’s ability to respond are essential to the success of the leasing process. We have every reason to believe that we will quickly have the building completely occupied."
