Tele2 expands in Kaunas – moving into the BLC2 business centre

The telecommunications company Tele2 is establishing a business and private client contact centre in Kaunas. For its headquarters, the company chose the SBA Group company Urban Investors’ BLC2 business centre next to the under reconstruction Vienybės Square. Tele2 will employ fifty staff at the newly completed business centre and does not dismiss the potential for further development.

“A comfortable and healthy work environment is important for effective work. Thus, when choosing offices, not only its convenient location in the city mattered but also solutions necessary for the welfare of our staff: green zones, active leisure and community spaces,” Tele2 CEO Petras Masiulis says.

Already this April, a modern office spanning almost 500 square meters will be established in the BLC2 business centre for Tele2. At the start of operations, Tele2 will employ 50 staff.

“As we predicted, Kaunas is becoming an increasingly frequent destination for development for foreign companies and ones from the capital. The choice of one of the telecommunication market leaders, Tele2, to settle in the newly opened business centre BLC2 shows that for businesses, being in a convenient location in the city centre is important not only for their clients but also for their staff. The latter is concerned with good transportation options, parking spaces, catering options in the business centre itself and other services also being within reach in just minutes,” SBA Group company Urban Inventors board chairman Lionginas Šepetys says.

According to him, foreign and Lithuanian companies arriving in and expanding in Kaunas can already choose the recently opened A-class business centre offices in the very heart of the city. The tenants are increasing their demands for workspaces to have natural lighting, a healthy microclimate, which guarantee productive work and the capacity for the companies to grow together with their offices.

Built next to the Vienybės Square, which is being renewed by SBA, the BLC2 business centre offers the Kaunas market 13,000 square meters of class A office space. Currently, around 50% of the premises have been leased out or reserved. The remainder is actively drawing the interest of potential tenants. The four-building complex can offer officers for various needs, both for small companies seeking 50 square meters of space and large companies, seeking to rent 900 square meters in a single floor.

Already the BLC2 business centre has the global business consultancy and audit company EY operating in it, in the first floor there is a restaurant zone working, where you can find Fortas, Vero Café, Sushi Express and also the shop Narvesen.

The total SBA investment in the BLC2 business centre and Unity Square reaches 40 million euro. Just for the square reconstruction works, the SBA Group invested 10 million euro.
