Sonae Sierra has begun, in partnership (50%/50%) with ING Real Estate, the construction of the Colombo Towers, which will become one of the main office developments in Lisbon, Portugal.
Representing a total investment of about €90 million, the project for the two Towers began last week with the construction of the Towers. Torre Oriente is scheduled to be complete in October 2008, and Torre Ocidente in March 2010.
The future Towers are being built in the Centro Colombo area, which is privileged in terms of office business, due to its excellent access roads and public transportation networks. Between the 2nd and 13th levels, the Towers will have a construction area of about 24.800 m² each, making available open space areas until 1,988 m² in a single floor. 1,000 especially reserved parking spaces will also be made available in the Centro Colombo parking lot. These spaces had already been planned for this purpose.
Once they are completed, the Colombo Towers will represent an offer of excellent quality in the office business, complementing the success of the Centro Colombo, which has positioned itself as the main shopping and leisure destination in Lisbon from day one. To market this future development, Sonae Sierra hired specialists Cushman & Wakefield and Jones Lang LaSalle, which are already developing the marketing of the project.
