Futureal Group is developing its biggest office project in Budapest, next to Hungary’s largest multimodal transportation hub. Budapest ONE Business Park will expand the capital’s office market with more than 65,000 square meters of GLA. The first phase of the WELL Building Platinum pre-certified complex designed as a ribbon building will be handed over in H2 2019.

The first phase of Budapest ONE, with a total GLA of 65,400 square meters will provide nearly 25,000 square meters of office and 2,600 square meters of commercial and service space.
Budapest ONE is being built in an area that is not only close to the city center but that can be accessed in 40 minutes from the south suburban areas and the nearby bigger cities. According to estimations, nearly 165,000 people use the Kelenföld terminal of metro line 4, the railway station and the bus station every day at this district of Budapest, called Őrmező.
“Beside the unique design, location is becoming more important for tenants, which makes areas close to the underground lines more valuable, especially the ones that also offer an employee focused service environment. Due to the shortage of workforce, companies can apply attractive offices as direct recruitment tools. Budapest ONE can be accessed within 10 minutes from the city center by direct connections. With its forward-looking solutions the office complex gives an answer for changing market demands,” said Tibor Tatar, CEO of Futureal.
The office complex obtained the international WELL Building Platinum Precertification among the firsts in Hungary. WELL focuses on the beneficial impacts on employees’ health and well-being, examines the buildings’ impact on human body, health and well-being.
