BudaPart Gate – Gateway to the Future
As the years go by and new generations enter the world of work, employee well-being is becoming more and more popular. The Y and Z generations increasingly expect and even consider it natural that working hours should not mean keeping your nose to the grindstone for eight hours without a break; they need short breaks of relaxation during the day and the ability to choose more informal workstations. Designers of the office buildings of the future are fully aware of this, therefore they create workstations accordingly and the office buildings of BudaPart, including BudaPart Gate, were designed taking these expectations into account.
The development by Property Market, BudaPart is a unique project in Hungary, thanks to its location and the high ratio of green areas and water surfaces. By the establishment of a professionally built environment, and the provision of direct access to the public park on the banks of the River Danube, the development will offer an outstanding quality of life, a motivating work environment and opportunities for recreation. However, BudaPart is not only exceptional because its developers have taken into account the special environmental features of Lágymányosi Bay to the fullest extent to create a place that offers a new lifestyle for the individuals living and working there, but also because it organizes them into a real community. In fact, by the end of the project, a total of 15 residential and 14 office buildings, a hotel, restaurants and retail units will have been created, surrounded by public parks, playgrounds for children of different ages, a dog track, a bicycle track and sports courts on a 20-hectare area.
The 20,000 sqm office building of BudaPart Gate will be situated at the gateway of the main square of BudaPart, the construction of which commenced in the summer of 2017, and will be completed in 2019. The office building will simultaneously provide the urban infrastructure necessary for quality work and proximity to nature, for the sake of inspiration. Constructed by Market Építő Zrt., one of the largest civil engineering companies in Hungary with a 21 year history, the high quality BudaPart Gate is situated just an arm’s length from the Danube, thus the employees working here in the future will get a daily dose of the creative energy provided by the unique site and its characteristics.
When BudaPart Gate was designed, the developers wanted the built environment to contribute to concentration and reduce stress levels. There is a great emphasis on public space – an essential element nowadays – and well-being within the building. In the LEED “Gold” qualified office building with an energy saving certificate, ideal spaces with optimal solar exposure will be provided, where the employer can customize their own office space efficiently and according to their requirements.
BudaPart project will serve multiple purposes hallmarked by human-centered living spaces and workstations, dominated by environment-friendly cutting-edge technology and careful engineering design. This will be further emphasized by the construction of the 120 meter tall MOL Campus, to be built on the main square of BudaPart, designed by Foster + Partners, who have built a number of iconic buildings, such as the visitor center at Apple Park.
3 arguments for your company to become #budaparti
Borbála Csuhay, sales and asset management director of Property Market Real Estate Development Ltd.:
1. Nowadays, the remuneration of the labor force and the additional costs of employee fluctuation impose a significant burden on companies, compared to which office rental costs are negligible, therefore businesses proactively anticipate the needs of employees. According to our experiences, good access, quality buildings, practical, easily adaptable spaces and economical operation are the most important basic expectations of tenants in the office market, and these are the aspects we also focus on.
2. As employees do not work solely in isolation, but rather they form a community, these spaces must be suited for brainstorming during work, in order to significantly increase creativity and efficiency. In the case of BudaPart Gate, real community spaces are located not only inside, but also outside the buildings!
3. In line with the growing trend of culinary experiences, BudaPart Gate also breaks with the dull monotony of the usual cafeterias serving the needs of office workers: employees will be treated to a high-quality canteen with a special focus on healthy nutrition. The dishes made with quality raw materials will serve the well-being of those enjoying them.
