Interesting rental conditions and, at the same time, the opportunity to test new ways of working. These were the main conditions of the NN insurance company for our Office Agency team during negotiations with the owners of commercial real estate. The client, who has long been associated with the location of Prague's Smíchov, considered rental options in the same location, and also in other available office buildings in Prague 5.
Our professional relationship with NN began at the turn of last year, which coincided with the onset of the second wave of the pandemic. In detail, we examined several relocation options with the client’s team. One of the options was to stay in the existing premises in the Zlatý Anděl building in Prague 5, where the NN group has been based for more than 20 years.
In addition to favourable financial conditions, the client's priority was the possibility of implementing a hybrid way of working. This 'New Way of Working' combines working from home and a flexible workplace in the office. The client started testing this concept in the existing premises at the beginning of the year. This is one of the reasons why they finally decided to stay in Zlatý Anděl and continue with this, now proven, model.
Another important reason for staying was the landlord's offer itself. In addition to a favourable lease on the 6 500 sq m area, we managed to negotiate, among other things, investment in the renovation of existing interiors. This was done to better reflect the new working style, and also take into account the ongoing pandemic and uncertainty.
The Zlatý Anděl administrative complex, belonging to the portfolio of the CPI Property Group, was built in 1999 and was designed by the famous French architect, Jean Nouvel. It is located in an attractive office location, next to the 'Anděl' station on the metro B line, and is also close to several tram lines. The building boasts the international BREEAM Excellent certification and offers 7,000 sq m of retail space from a total area of 13,000 sq m.
Thank you to the team from our client and to my Office Agency team for the great cooperation!
