The Delegation of the European Union to Argentina is searching for a property to be leased or purchased, to be used for office purposes.
This property should meet the European Union's requirements, concerning quality of construction, space, security and location. It should comprise a lot with a stand-alone building located at a minimum distance of 15m (Ideally 20m.) from the perimeter of the lot, in particular from neighboring streets and surrounded by a boundary wall or entire part of floors in grade A buildings; either a building's surface area of :
A) 1000 m² (maximum 2 floors)
B) option A, adding room for diplomatic receptions of around 200m2, including possibility for kitchen facilities.
The property should be situated within the following areas: Recoleta, Palermo, Belgrano, Barrio Parque and Puerto Madero (before the bridge). Its location should be easily accessible and consistent with the needs of representation and visibility of an important diplomatic mission.
The required office space should be suitable for hosting around 22 members of staff in individual offices as well as in shared offices and in open space in different combinations. It should also provide an adequate number of meeting rooms, one multi-purpose conference room of approximately 125 square meters, as well as archive spaces, storage rooms, server room, kitchenette and lavatories. Sufficient natural light is a pre-requisite for the offices; rooms without windows can only be foreseen for archiving, photocopying, etc.
Energy-efficient, "green buildings" will be considered with preference.
The total 1000 square meters as indicated above should include corridors, entrance hall, reception area, and internal staircases but not parking spaces and areas entirely dedicated to technical equipment.
Around 10 parking slots should be available within the perimeter boundary of the compound.
The office space must be compliant with all local building standards and regulations, in particular in terms of occupational health & safety, full access to disabled persons, fire prevention and anti-seismic construction codes.
Compliance with EU standards or other international standards is a valuable asset. The overall quality of finishing as well as the technical and mechanical equipment facilities should be in line with EU or international standards.
The office space should be available for occupation, after fitting-out works completion, by the end of 2019.
Offers may include either:
In case of rental, the building will stay the property of the owner, while the European Union will enter into a long-term agreement assumed to be for 10 to 20 years minimum, with an option to extend and/or even purchase at a further stage.
