With the lease of the 827 sqm space on the ground floor of the first phase of the U•Center project, where a new Stradale restaurant will be opened, the 25th location within the Flavours group, the retail component of the building reaches an occupancy rate of 100%.
„We are always carefully choosing our partners with whom we enter into new projects, and Forte Partners is a partner that we have wanted for a long time, U•Center being only a first project that we will develop together. With the opening of Stradale in U•Center, we are expanding our network in a new area of Bucharest, thus managing to reach as many corporate clients as possible, close to their office or home, this mix being the direction in which we are increasingly focusing our attention“, said Bogdan Tiu, General Director of Flavours Group.
„With this new Stradale location, we are opening not only a restaurant, but an event space, a perfect place for corporate and private parties, and a social hub for the community in the area.The space will also benefit from a Mitzu cafe, and the menus are, as our customers are already used, inspired by cuisines from all over the world and reinterpreted, prepared live on the spot, in front of customers “, added Chef Foa.
„We are glad that Stradale chose U•Center for a new restaurant in its chain, because we are thus able to offer the employees working in the building, as well as the local community, a special culinary experience, signed by Chef Foa “, said Elena Tecuță, Office Leasing Manager of Forte Partners. „This choice is a confirmation of our strategy to offer all the amenities and features of modern and comfortable urban living, in sustainable and energy-efficient buildings, with easy access to public transport, shops and other social amenities”.
