The first office building of the new neighbourhood BudaPart, handed over in February, has been declared as an environmentally friendly and energy-efficient building, by international standards. Developed by Property Market, BudaPart GATE has been awarded the LEED GOLD certification, recognizing the building's sustainability efforts on a global scale.
The office building features a number of innovative and environmentally friendly solutions, which are now recognized in the LEED certification as gold grade, nearly the best possible to exist: energy-efficient mechanical solutions, facade structure of high energy efficiency, energy-saving luminaires, water-saving irrigation and equipment, electric car charging ports, the possibility of measuring electricity usage, cooling and heating energy, as well as the high proportion of built-in materials with significant recycled content have contributed to the recognition.
Also, the excellent office location and view, and the fact that the large green inner garden further boosts the comfort of employees of BudaPart, as well as creation of well-being was highlighted as additional advantages of the new generation building. Furthermore, the building received outstanding ratings for public transport options, proximity to cycle paths and services, as well as waste management and minimizing light pollution in outdoor areas.
The building, designed by architectural firm Studio’100 headed by the Ybl-award-winning László Szász, has unique architectural solutions, thanks to which, in addition to aesthetic aspects, an ideal solar exposure is also ensured. The 20,000-square-meter office enjoys outstanding popularity among tenants due to its unique and environmentally friendly solutions and its waterfront location: currently the occupancy rate in the building is almost 90%. Several companies have already moved into the 11-storey building this year, including Atradius Hungary, Sió ECKES, doTERRA, Orange Business Services, Novo Nordisk Hungária, IFUA Horváth & Partners and BudaPart's real estate developer, Property Market. Services Office Belbuda is also part of the tenant portfolio, offering serviced offices, making BudaPart GATE available to smaller businesses, too (from one person onwards) for even one month rent, if needed so. The services of the office building, as well as those of the neighborhood are constantly expanding: BudaPart GATE Melódin restaurant opened at the end of June, MOL BUBI collection station was established on the side of the building in July, 107 parking spaces for public use will become available in the underground garage in a few days, and further commercial units will be opening soon in the neighborhood.
“When designing the building, we envisaged a modern, eco-friendly, community-oriented office building. The LEED GOLD certification also proves that BudaPart GATE, in addition to providing a harmonious and inspiring work environment for both tenants and employees, fully meets the needs of our time and the ever-increasing energy efficiency requirements ” - said Dr. Mihály Schrancz, Managing Director of Property Market.
