Revamped Gobuda Mall's gradual opening begins
Gobuda Mall, formerly known as EuroCenter, is gradually opening for visitors starting today, following 10 months of extensive renovations, developer Wing tells the Budapest Business Journal.
First, Interspar and, among others, Líra, Erste Bank, MKB and OTP Bank branches, Yettel, Telekom, and Optic World are going to open for the customers who can gradually take possession of more and more shops afterwards.
As a result of the renovation, the mall was transformed into a modern shopping center with a leasable area of 25,000 square meters, accommodating approximately 100 stores. The building has been completely revamped inside and out, offering new features: some of the former engineering areas were converted into offices, while a green roof terrace, a roof garden, and a playground will be constructed in the near future on the roof above the engineering area, the developer says.
In addition to maintaining the silhouette of the building, the interiors have also been rationalized and optimized, so that access to each level was significantly improved compared to the previous situation thanks to the newly built moving walkways and escalators, as well as the new elevator cores and stairwells.
In addition, a 140-meter straight-line pedestrian and communal passage was created on the first floor, to house the fashion shops planned there. The natural light penetration of Gobuda Mall was also improved through the modernization of roof windows and spaces opened by ceiling cut-outs.
