OBI Hungary Retail Kft. is moving to Lurdy Ház


It was close to two years ago when the owner of the Lurdy Ház complex decided to replace its entire management body. As a result, Lurdy Ház has recently undergone a clear image transition.

Communication about the renewal of Lurdy House is not just a marketing slogan but a series of specific, real changes implemented as a result of a common decision of the owner and the management, which respond to market challenges and provide first-hand benefits for tenants and visitors alike.

The ground floor of the building now houses a spacious central area that creates a real, organic link between the Passage and the cinema hall as well as between the ground level service area and the new line of booths. After the complete replacement of the flooring, the remodelling of the ground-floor passage and the full shape-up of the facade of the main entrance, Lurdy Ház launched a large-scale energetic and IT investment project.

Those who benefit most from these investments are the tenants of shops as well as those of office spaces.

Lurdy Ház is generally considered only a shopping centre. Only few people know that in addition to the shopping centre stretching some 30,000 sq m, the 5-storey building is home to an office center of almost the same size.

Its favourable logistical position, the proximity of the River Danube, the Csepel free port, the airport and motorway M5 as well as on-site warehousing and basically unlimited parking facility, the outstanding IT background, the number of services available in the plaza environment and, last but not least, competitive prices make Lurdy Ház an appealing choice for international corporation looking for an office.

 Most recently OBI Hungary Retail Kft. signed a long-term office rental contract with Lurdy Ház, as a result of which the entire Hungarian management team of OBI is relocating to the new 1,900 sq m building in Lurdy Ház. Hungarian country manager of OBI Christoph Wackerbauer had this to say about their selection of Lurdy Ház as their new location:

“In our opinion the two key elements of rational business operation are to provide employees with good conditions and to allow them to work as efficiently as they can. When we were shopping for an office for the HQ of OBI Hungary, we had two primary requirements in mind. Lurdy Irodaház appears to be a good choice in all respects as we get all relevant services under very favourable conditions. Easy access, a wide range of basic and wellness services available locally or nearby, the well-known address and the relatively short distance to our previous office all decided in the favour of Lurdy Ház. We trust that after the move, as we settle down and get down to business, our hopes come true and we find a real “home” here in the long run.”

OBI has until late September to move into its new office in Lurdy Ház.
