All of the participants, architectures, designers and developers did their best not to lose the identity of Old Tbilisi and Tavisupleba square. This issue was a bit disputable, but today, I can see from the expressions of people how they like it. It’s the 3100 sq. m. commercial office space from which half is already for rent. Any of the countries capital would be proud of this kind of pretty building. There are all facilities for starting serious businesses in this office,” Papashvili said.

Sophisticated interior and dynamic combination of decorative elements on the façade keeps the characteristics and charm of the past centuries. A pedestrian street which is right next to the business center is full of branded shops, cafes and restaurants. All this makes it a fashionable business environment to work in,” Tabidze 1 Officials note.
“Our family was the owner of the first floor and cellar of this building from 1992. Life was not easy for us, we even had a fire here. We decided to think about privatization of upper two floors and then some area in the yard. It took almost 4 years to resettle the residents of this house.” Papashvili says.
“In 2008, during the August war, construction of this building was suspended for some time but from September we resumed the building process. We are financed by Bank Republic and EBRD. The credit of USD 3 million was allocated for 8 years. I am very content of this building and like it very much,” Papashvili says.
