BudaPart – South-Buda’s new quarter on the Danube by the Kopaszi gát
Cushman & Wakefield international real estate advisor and Eston International are appointed with the leasing of Budapest’s newest and largest mixed-use development, located in the 11th South-Buda district, announced at a kick-off event for the major local leasing agencies. The two agencies will co-exclusively work together on the leasing of BudaPart office buildings.
BudaPart is constructed in the Lágymányosi-öböl, by the river at the magnificent area of the Kopaszi gát.
Upon completion, the project will comprise 300,000 sq m of office space, 200 apartments per phase, and supporting retail areas. The developer is now finalising the plans of several office buildings, the hand-over of the first phase can be expected in 2018.
Gergely Árendás, CEO at Property Market stated: „We are thrilled to be working together with Cushman & Wakefield and Eston International on the project. The vicinity of the waterfront, and being located in one of the most sought after office submarkets makes the BudaPart project inevitably unique. The residential areas accompanied by outstanding infrastructure and surrounded by the multi-phase, high quality, Danube view offices is attractive for future tenants and employees.”
Gergely Pados, Managing Partner at Cushman & Wakefield in Hungary added: “We are extremely proud that Property Market entrusted us with the leasing of BudaPart. The completion of BudaPart will double South-Buda submarket’s office space, which is much needed as the vacancy rate is at its lowest in 19 years, standing at 4.7 % with continuously rising demand. BudaPart will completely transform this currently unused 133 acre area into a dynamic, popular urban district. We are confident that our market knowledge and expertise will help us to quickly lease up this unique development.“
Adorján Salamon, Managing Director at Eston International commented: „We look forward to work on the BudaPart project. It is not only Budapest’s large-scale real estate development, but being familiar with Property Market’s objective, the building’s technical specification and design will offer unrivaled office solutions for future tenants. Our committed office leasing team enthusiastically awaits starting this fantastic mandate.”
