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.

Press release: Capital Mill held topping out ceremony of Repston’s new production facility

Yesterday, the real estate investment company Capital Mill together with Vilcon Ehitus and Repston OÜ held a topping out ceremony for their new office and production facility. Together, they are erecting a state-of-the-art building near Maardu, to be completed by the spring of the next year. The building will be equipped with custom-made furnishings and in addition, there are plans to build a solar power station on the roof.

Vilcon Ehitus OÜ will build the new office and production facility. Indrek Saar, Manager of the Vilcon Ehitus OÜ said that the construction has proceeded very nicely so far: “We have tried to be as flexible as possible and keep in mind the needs of the client. At this point I would like to thank the client because the cooperation has been extremely friendly and reasonable, which has made everything very smooth.”

The user of the factory will be the company named Repston OÜ, which manufactures special metal construction solutions. “Repston’s main goal is to produce custom-made metalwork in the new facility. Currently, the company plans to produce a variety of metal parts for furniture, such as custom-made stair railings and other interior fittings,” said Taavi Kiisk, Construction Manager at Capital Mill.

Although the construction of the building will be completed as early as by February 2020, it is still necessary to install the equipment needed for metalwork. “Since Repston uses a variety of cutting-edge technologies, it takes extra time to install it all after the construction is finished. Therefore, the facility will be fully completed in the spring of 2020,” Kiisk noted.

Repston OÜ has invested a considerable amount of time and money into the building. According to Kiisk, it only looks like a traditional production building. “What makes it special is that the building will also house office facilities, which will have custom-made furnishings. In addition, the facade will be covered in weathering steel.” This was also confirmed by Indrek Saar, who said that the factory will be flashy and modern. “The building will be equipped with very modern technology and furnishings. In addition to the facade, we also plan to make the lighting very prominent.”

Various future plans have already been devised for the new building. “One idea is to build a solar power station on the roof. This would save the company a considerable amount of money because the solar power station will help reduce costs,” said Kiisk.

The traditional topping out ceremony at the new factory near Maardu took place yesterday afternoon; the architect connected to the building Anders Jaano, Capital Mill, Vilcon Construction and Repston representatives were invited.

Repston is engaged in the production of metal interior fittings, commercial furnishings, staircase guard rails, chandeliers and lighting fixtures, and metalwork. Repston has cooperated with international hotel chains Hilton, Radisson, Sokos, Scandic, and Ibis, as well as with clothing brands such as Levis, G-Star Raw.

Capital Mill OÜ was founded in early 2008 to help investors looking to acquire commercial real estate in the Baltic countries and increase their value through high-quality property management services.
