PRESS RELEASE: 75 percent of Skyon, Maakri’s future skyscraper, has been leased

In the summer of 2021, Skyon the 95-metre-tall skyscraper boasting impressive architecture will rise above Maakri Street, with one quarter of the space within still available.

Construction of the commercial building being developed by Capital Mill began in February 2019. Today, the stage has been reached where the building has begun rising towards the clouds, with a cheeky preview of a glass façade that is unique within the Baltics: namely, once completed, the 26 floors of the unique building will be surrounded by 898 coloured elements. In addition, the building’s symbolic cornerstone was recently laid.

According to Silver Neemelo, Construction Manager at Capital Mill, the project is on schedule, despite the unexpected spring developments. The occupancy of the building also gives reason to rejoice. ‘We have focused part of the building on small spaces, understanding that there is a shortage of these in downtown Tallinn. At the current stage of construction, where the building is just beginning to rise, 75 percent of the space within has already been covered by contracts, with negotiations underway for the remaining space. The number of interested parties has also been nothing to complain about. Those interested in large spaces need to hurry, to ensure that they find a solution that meets their specific needs’, he noted.

Because Skyon is being built according to one of the most well-known environmentally friendly construction rating systems (LEED), a number of smart technological solutions have been used to help make it a sustainable and environmentally friendly building. For example, during the warm summer months, the building uses cool night air for pre-cooling, and when employees are at home, the amount of energy used for ventilation, cooling and heating is reduced. All technical systems are remotely controlled.

Artjom Sokolov, representative of SEB Bank, which financed the construction of the building, said that SEB is pleased to contribute to a cleaner environment. ‘We can see from our business clients that the carbon footprint left by companies is becoming an increasingly important factor for every company. Being a near-zero energy building, Skyon offers a modern and energy-efficient work environment that also allows commercial lessees to meet their carbon footprint goals’.

The skyscraper was designed by domestically and internationally renowned KOKO architects, who have, for example, served as the designers of the EXPO 2000 Estonian pavilion, among other outstanding facilities. Skyon is characterized by windows of different shapes, sizes and layouts, which give both the exterior and the interior a unique look. In the dark, however, the LED light strips installed between the façade elements create an effective image. Careful planning and façade elements take into account the distribution of light throughout the day, protecting those inside from excessive sunlight, while at the same time allowing occupants to enjoy a view of the city.

Total leased premises within the building cover 8400 m2 and the sizes of the smallest offices start from 34 m2. Offices are fully furnished with all of the necessary amenities and functionalities: room for 4 workstations and a meeting area for 4 people, a toilet, and the possibility to rent an office with kitchen furniture. Parking spaces, rooms for bicycles, toilets and showers are located on the underground floors. An 11.5-metre-high formal lobby, extending through three floors, will serve as the entrance to the building.

According to Tanel Samuel, a representative of Capital Mill, the total investment for the construction of the center is nearly 4.5 million euros.

As we mainly expand outside large cities, we can also contribute to Estonia’s regional development, “Alarotu noted.

The new Prisma will operate in Tiskre at Liiva tee 61. A ring road will be built in front of the center, which will be built in cooperation with Harku municipality and the Road Administration.
