The developer sold the 23-storey office tower for €120 million to the Valesco Group, a real estate investment manager from London, and AIP Asset Management, an asset manager based in Seoul.

“This prime asset, coupled with an exceptional principal tenant in Amazon in the growing core of Bratislava, offers a unique and compelling investment opportunity,” said Shiraz Jiwa, CEO of The Valesco Group, as quoted in the firm's press release.

In the vicinity of Twin City, other international companies are also seated, including Swiss Re, Bayer, PWC and SAP.

“We look forward to providing other additions to the zone, which will enhance productivity and the well-being of its users," said Marian Herman, CEO of HB Reavis, as quoted in the press release.
