The retail space on the ground floor has been leased by Minotti, a leading Italian company for contemporary furniture.
The building has been awarded BREEAM certification "very good" and has over 45 bicycle parking spaces and charging stations for e-bikes. It is also connected to the district heating network and therefore has an efficient and environmentally friendly energy supply.
