BUCHAREST (Romania), May 9 (SeeNews) - Chinese telecommunications equipment and services company Huawei has leased an additional 1,000 sq m office space in the Globalworth Tower in Bucharest, London-listed Globalworth Real Estate Investment said on Monday.
Starting July 2022, Huawei will carry out its activity in a total of 12,600 sq m in the Romanian capital, Globalworth Real Estate Investment said in a press release.
"For the past years, Huawei has seen a huge growth in our local office members, and Globalworth has witnessed it first-hand," Huawei Romania administrative management director Peter Piao said.
Bucharest’s Globalworth tower stands 120 m tall, with over 26 floors. Based on information available on the real estate developer’s website, the tower features over 55,000 sq m of leasable space.
