PRESS RELEASE: Skyon, the most eye-catching skyscraper in Tornimäe was opened with a grand celebration

Skyon, a 95-metre-tall commercial and office building, which will give the capital’s silhouette a fresh look was opened on Maakri street in Tallinn today.  A striking light show set to the music of NÖEP was projected onto the unique glass façade of the building, which was developed by Capital Mill.

The 26 floors of Skyon, which was developed in accordance with the highest, Platinum standard requirements of one of the world’s best known rating systems for green building (LEED) are occupied by several IT companies, law firms and financial service providers. These include Coop Bank, Arco Vara, BaltCap and the Estonian Banking Association. Capital Mill itself also relocated to Skyon.

According to Igor Mölder, one of the founders of Capital Mill, Skyon will complement Tallin’s silhouette in content and form, offering the best working conditions in the district behind the 898 glass panels covering its façade, thanks to environmentally friendly and smart solutions.

‘Developing a skyscraper in the heart of Tallinn and adding to the city’s legendary silhouette meant an exceptional responsibility for Capital Mill as developer. We knew from the beginning that we wanted to create something eye-catching, valuable, and special. I believe that in collaboration with architects, the contractor and other partners did a great job in achieving that,’ Mölder said.

The building uses several smart technological solutions to make it sustainable and environmentally friendly. Almost 900 glass panels of different shapes and sizes give a unique look to the interior as well as the exterior while considering the distribution of light throughout the day. Thus, the façade protects from excessive solar radiation while allowing to enjoy a view of the city at the same time. In the dark, however, a striking effect will be created by a total of 4.5 kilometres of LED light strips which are installed between the façade components.

Heating and ventilation use an energy and money saving solution which utilises the cool night air for precooling during the warm summer nights and reduces the amount of energy spent on ventilation, cooling and heating during the time when the workers are at home. All technological systems are remotely operated.

The architectural solution for Skyon was created by the internationally acclaimed architects from KOKO. Construction of the building began in February of 2019 and required 10.000 square metres or 24.000 tons concrete. There are a total of 8.000 square metres of façade and 8.400 square metres of rental surfaces.

Capital Mill OÜ was founded in early 2008 to help investors looking to acquire commercial real estate in the Baltic countries and generate value through high-quality property management services. The founders and partners of the company comprise a team with long-standing real estate and banking experience. Capital Mill manages several highly valued commercial properties in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.

With 20 years of banking experience, Kaarel Loigu is set to take charge of Capital Mill, which is looking to expand its reach in the Baltic Republics, with his goal being the sustainable management and development of the company.

Igor Mölder, who has led the company for 12 years, will be focusing even more on the development of sales, strategy and other companies belonging to the CM group.

‘Capital Mill has grown rapidly in recent years, but we want to build an even stronger and more ambitious company. We have reached a stage where greater emphasis must be placed on sustainable management and the development of the company,’ said Mölder. ‘Leading Capital Mill requires a highly ambitious and broad-minded person, one who understands our company, real estate and banking. Kaarel is a professional who is not afraid of challenges or work, knows how to motivate people and wants to contribute 110 per cent to achieving goals. We are pleased that such a person has joined our team.’

Loigu is a top manager with 20 years of banking experience, who spent the last three years heading the Corporate Finance Department at Coop Pank.

‘The challenge of participating in the success story of Capital Mill is, of course, a great one. I believe that I can successfully use my long-term banking and management experience. In my opinion, Capital Mill is a strong player in the real estate market, and it is certainly important that it is a comprehensive and ambitious company. I see an excellent opportunity to increase business volumes in cooperation with a strong team in all three Baltic Republics, and possibly in other countries as well,’ said Loigu.

Capital Mill is looking to expand its operations in all domestic markets in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in the coming years. The company’s most outstanding development in recent years is the 26-storey commercial building on Maakri Street, and the 95-metre-high commercial building Skyon, which will be opening its doors on 26 August.

However, the most striking difference setting the skyscraper apart from the rest of the cityscape is its unique in the Baltics coloured glass façade, which will consist of 898 coloured elements when completed. SKYON is being awarded a LEED Platinum certificate in accordance with one of the most well-known environmentally friendly evaluation systems, and a number of smart technological solutions have been used in the building to help make it sustainable and environmentally friendly.
