Ion Sturza, the founder of Fribourg Capital, has managed once again to attract investors on Romanian soil. Siemens Romania will be the newest resident in Liberty Technology Park Cluj.
„Our newest clients add value not only to our “tech park” concept but also to the entire fervent tech scene developing in Cluj-Napoca. This is an underlying objective that I strongly support: helping Cluj-Napoca become a true pole of Excellency in IT.” – declared Ion Sturza, chairman of Fribourg Capital.
Since the 6th of December 2013, the opening date of Liberty Technology Park Cluj, 8 companies have chosen it as a destination for their offices: Halcyon Mobile, Recall, Makronetz, Ecuson Studio, Spherik Accelerator, La Casa, Tulemod and Siemens. The first phase of the project is 100% rented.
The companies residing in this tech habitat add value to their concept and complete their profile. Makronetz is a software developing company. Ecuson Studio is a design & branding studio. Halcyon Mobile is a company specialized in building mobile apps for IOS and Android. Recall deals with the secured data management. La Casa restaurant will also join Liberty in June. Their concept is a little different for the Romanian market, bringing a large array of products: 120 culinary specialties (bakery, pastry, confectionery and gastronomy). “La Casa” will have a restaurant with a terrace. Tulemod is a start-up that combines the newest technologies with the fashion industry in their effort to minimize inefficiencies in the work flux of this domain by using 3D art and animation.
A Siemens department will move in Liberty Technology Park Cluj in August. Siemens is an important company in the field of engineering and technology. The company will be completely installed in their new offices by the beginning of August, occupying a total of 3 000 sq m.
Work in Progress
Planurile de viitor ale parcului Liberty includ și alegerea în luna iunie a antreprenorului general pentru etapa a 2-a a proiectului. A 2-a fază a proiectului va fi livrată la finele acestui an, oferind un total de 13 412 m2 aparținând clădirilor D și E. Suprafețele generoase per etaj – 3 600 m2 – oferă companiilor oportunitatea de a ocupa un nivel întreg. Interiorul spațiilor este tip „open space” cu o distribuție excelentă ce permite nu doar o compartimentare eficientă, ci și personalizarea spațiului în funcție de specificul companiilor. Lucrările pentru faza a II-a a proiectului vor începe în luna Iunie.
Also, the landscaping project of the park is in work. Liberty Technology Park Cluj is continuing the harnessing the “green area” correspondent to the first phase: 13 250 sq m that house multifunctional sport terrains, a small garden with fruit trees and bicycle tracks.
„By the 1st of August 2014 the first phase of the project will be 100% occupied. Companies have shown great interest in the second phase as well, where we signed prelease contracts for 30% of the total surface. The spaces will be occupied in December 2014 and January 2015.” – Nina Moldovan, CEO.
