Millennium Gardens: An Astonishing Location on the Danube
TriGranit’s newest development, Millennium Gardens, which is the final element of the two-time FIABCI Award-winning Millennium City Center in Budapest, can accommodate tenants from 2020 on approximately 37,000 sqm of GLA.
The two-winged building with unique architecture is constructed next to MÜPA Budapest, the National Theater and the K&H Headquarters on the banks of the Danube, offering a remarkably spectacular view for its future tenants.
The concept for the complex, with its modern architecture and overall glass surface, joined by a compelling glass bridge over the ground floor, was conceived by Finta Studio to suit a uniquely located area with an outstanding neighborhood. The white, blade-shaped elements situated between each level and along the sides not only make the four-sided facade extraordinary, but also enable a clarity of design and unique dynamics for the building. This design solution supports both natural shading and comfort, in accordance with the building’s energy-saving operation.
Adapting to latest needs with sustainability
Adapting to the newest city utilization trends and to the Millennial employee’s needs, the ten-story “Class-A” office building will offer facilities for more than 200 bicycles including changing rooms and showers. Additionally, the office complex will have electric car chargers, facilitating environmental awareness. The spacious, green garden with water surface promotes recreation and a healthy work-life balance as well as work at an alternative location, and can also function as a public space, a meeting point and a place for employees to have lunch.
Green, open spaces on the ground floor will be accessible for pedestrians, while the large garden, to be constructed on the rooftop, will provide comfort just for employees. The office complex will also provide a place for a restaurant on the ground floor, with seating for 300 people, alongside further service units. The building’s design was planned in consideration of sustainability, using modern architectural solutions secured by the developer, TriGranit, as well as in correspondence with the BREEAM “Very Good” certification.
Office, or hotel, or both?
Despite the intensive office development boom of last years, new office stock is still required in Budapest. The Millennium City Center with its good accessibility and good infrastructure is a popular and proven destination among tenants. This continuously growing submarket, with thousands of international companies, creates a real demand not only for further office space, but also accommodation opportunities. In addition to this, considering the growing importance of Budapest as tourist and cultural destination, the neighborhood’s intense cultural life makes the Millennium City Center on its own an especially attractive location. Due to the lack of quality hotels around the development, TriGranit is constructing the building in such a way that it can suit both office and hotel purposes. Wanna try?
Location, location, location
The location of the building is excellent in terms of public transport. Four tram lines, several bus routes, two suburban rail lines and the prospective fifth metro line are situated nearby. Through these, the city center can be reached within 15 minutes, and long-distance commuters also have a wide variety of options available when reaching the complex.
City in the city
In addition to all of this, Millennium City Center has become a real town inside Budapest over the past decade: accessible nearby facilities include cafés, restaurants, fast food restaurants, kindergarten, fitness centers and even a health center. Thanks to service units in the neighborhood, employees can arrange several of their everyday tasks as well. The office building will be located in a uniquely maintained green area along an almost 1 km long green promenade on the banks of the Danube with a spectacular view, well-protected from car traffic and offering plenty of places nearby for relaxation, leisure and recreational activities, while the adjacent MÜPA Budapest, National Theater and the nearby Budapest Park support cultural re-charge.
After almost 20 years of intense rehabilitation work, the area has become a popular, secure and comfortable residential, office and cultural area. And there are still places and detailed plans for further projects in the close vicinity of the project to be realized: mixed-use, residential and institutional.
TriGranit in other countries
Besides Millennium Gardens, one of the biggest office development projects in Budapest to be handed over by 2020, TriGranit remains active abroad as well; the company’s pipeline projects, together with Millennium Gardens, reach 107,000 sqm GLA in the CE region, including the construction of 77,000 sqm of GLA office space that will start within the coming 12 months in Budapest, Krakow and in Katowice.
