Skyon, a skyscraper with outstanding architecture at Maakri Street in the heart of Tallinn, developed by Capital Mill, has been issued a building permit. The construction process, that will last for two years, will begin in the first quarter of this year.
The height of the 26-storey Skyon to be erected at Maakri 30 will be 95 meters above ground, making it one of the tallest buildings in the area. Skyon’s slim and slender architecture follows the Scandinavian role models, combining city centre respectability with functionality and reasonability.
According to Silver Neemelo, Construction Manager of Capital Mill, the building permit is a long-awaited message of joy that enables to start with the construction of the ambitious high-rise building.
“Preliminary work to start the construction of Skyon is in the final stages and we are ready to launch construction in the coming months,” said Neemelo. “In the autumn, we carried out archaeological excavations at the site of the future skyscraper, where rare coins, buckles, rings and other objects from the 17th century were discovered. We covered with this a small gap in the capital city’s history, and now we are ready to take a prominent place in the Tallinn skyline.”
Skyon will be built according to the high requirements of the LEED Gold certificate for environmental sustainability, which continues the path that the Navigator and Explorer commercial buildings in the port area started.
An energy-efficient, architecturally attractive building with high-quality office space has been designed and will be constructed following the modelling design or BIM (building information modelling) methodology. BIM makes it possible to minimize design-induced construction failures, which in turn reduces construction costs and unnecessary wastage. In addition to conventional drawings, all construction information is reflected in detail also in 3D models, which can be viewed and used by all parties connected to the building.
“Tornimäe is a special and prestigious location that places high expectations on every new building. Our ambition is not only to respond to them, but to bring quality here, which would become a new standard,” added Neemelo. “For Capital Mill, an excellent working environment is important, because only this way, work efficiency can be guaranteed. The high-level architecture created by KOKO architects, which is combined with smart and energy-efficient engineering systems, contributes to this.”
The distinctive feature of Skyon is that it has windows of various shapes, sizes and layouts, which yield a dynamic result in both the exterior and interior, while ensuring energy efficiency. The LED light strips between facade elements create an impressive image in the dark. The main entrance is 11.5 meters high at the corner of Maakri and Tornimäe streets and a distinguished lobby extends through three floors.
Skyon is the ideal choice for small businesses looking for modern, high-quality, affordable office space in the city centre. The total rental area of the building is 8,200 m2. The rental space on the building’s 2nd-4th floor is 1,813 m2, which makes this space suitable for larger companies. In the tower, starting from the 5th floor up, the standard floor’s rental space is 302 m2.
Skyon’s higher floors offer a special view over Tallinn, which small businesses often cannot afford.
The smallest office sizes start from 34 square metres and these have all the amenities and functionalities needed for an office: space for 4 workstations and 4 people for meetings, a toilet, and in addition, it is possible to rent an office with kitchen furniture. Underground floors include parking spaces and rooms for bicycles, toilets and showers.
