Real estate concern the Futureal Group has successfully refinanced its Corvin Corner office building by signing a credit agreement with Erste Bank Hungary for EUR 10.2 million, according to a press release issued Thursday.
Erste Bank increased its original EUR 7 mln line of credit for the project as the occupancy rate of the Corvin Corner building, officially opened in December 2014, has already reached 100%, the press statement says.

The category ”A” office building, located on the corner of Futó and Práter streets in Budapest, has received the BREEAM certification indicating the highest level of energy efficiency, the press statement added.
The largest tenant at Corvin Corner is EPAM, one of the world’s leading software developers, renting over 5,000 sqm of office space.
