A brand new 12-storey office building has opened at Lõõtsa 1a in Ülemiste City. Both the building and the square next to it are named after renowned Estonian chemist Viktor Palm.
Gert Jostov, the chairman of the management board of Technopolis Ülemiste AS, says that the Palm building, parking station and square represent the company’s biggest project in recent years. “We’ve put a lot into them,” he said. “They also represent the first step in our next big stage of development. The building’s just been certified LEED Platinum as well, which means it’s as environmentally friendly as it can possibly be and that its management is really efficient.”
Designed by Koko architects and built by Oma Ehitaja AS, the new building has added 10,800 m2 of modern working space to Ülemiste City. Outside the building, Viktor Square comes with public seating and will be adorned in the new year with a fountain. The space will host a wide range of events.
The continued growth of Ülemiste City provides hope that in time it will become a suburb of Tallinn in its own right.
