ECE plans to develop a new shopping center in Budapest. The project area is located in the Northwestern part of the Hungarian capital, close to the Danube River, on the site of a former textile factory in the Óbuda district. It is planned to have over 170 shops on three levels and a leasable area of more than 50,000 m². Construction start for the project is scheduled for 2019, and the opening is planned for 2021.
“We are planning the most modern and attractive shopping center in Hungary. It is intended to set new standards in terms of the mix of tenants and retail sectors, service offerings, and visitor experience,” says Christoph Augustin, Project Director at ECE and Managing Director of ECE in Hungary. “To ensure these goals are met, we are applying our decades of experience as Europe’s market leader in the shopping center industry and the latest findings of ECE into this project.”
In addition to an attractive tenant mix comprised of top international brands and local vendors, ECE’s plans for the new development project – which comes with a unique architectural concept and a bright and spacious design – feature a spectacular gastronomy area. An offering of around 15 select food concepts is planned, ranging from good quick-service options and trendy casual restaurants through to fine dining restaurants. Visitors will be served high-quality local and international food and drinks prepared in a modern style and with fresh ingredients. The restaurant area is located next to a large roof garden with a sun terrace where customers will be able to relax and spend their free time. Plans for the project also include bringing an ultramodern cinema with 4D technology to the center.
