It is expected that by 2050 the world will need 50% more energy, 40% more water and 35% more food to support the population, and all predictions made worldwide reflect the need for sustainably built systems. One of the One United Properties projects, One Peninsula, is among the first to use geothermal resources, thus generating up to 50% bills reductions, as Beatrice Dumitrașcu, CEO Residential Division of One United Properties, stated at the ONLINE conference “Green solutions for commerce, industry and buildings”, organized by Energynomics.
“We started to build sustainably from our first project. We joined the Romanian Green Building Council (RoGBC), and from the very beginning, we adopted sustainability policies at all levels. We were among the pioneers of adopting these practices”, said Beatrice Dumitrașcu.
One United Properties has a pre-certified green portfolio and subsequently, its projects get green building certificates. “All our residential projects developed so far are pre-certified as green buildings. The newest are One Mircea Eliade and One Herăstrău Towers, and before them, there are One Charles de Gaulle, One Floreasca Lake, Madrigalului Residence and One Herăstrău Park. Today we have several projects in the construction phase, we have a fairly large portfolio of land, somewhere at 380,000 sqm, and a pipeline of over 3,500 housing units to be developed in the northern part of the Capital. We have also entered the medium segment of the residential area, where we will develop sustainable projects. An example is One Cotroceni Park, developed on 5.8 hectares, a project of true urban regeneration, already pre-certified as green”.
One Peninsula project, which will be completed in 2022, has geothermal pumps. The project located in Floreasca area, practically surrounded by Lake Floreasca, is a mixed-use one and offers quick access to the commercial spaces in the area. The project will include a semi-Olympic swimming pool, a relaxation area, 167 housing units – apartments and villas, with a large basement, on the entire served area.

“Consumers are much more careful when making acquisitions, and we have adapted every time, regardless of the segment we have entered, so that people would benefit from technology and beautiful architecture, quality and sustainable buildings. This project is certified as green, it has geothermal heat pumps, which help the end-user to have cold air during summer and heating during winter, reducing costs by up to 50% on utility bills”, she added.
