WING completes development of evosoft Hungary HQ
Real estate developer WING has completed the new 22,000 sqm headquarters building of evosoft Hungary Kft. as part of the second phase of the Hungarian Nobel Prize Winners R&D Park, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The building, home to a six-story research and development facility meets Gold-level environmental friendliness and energy efficiency LEED certification criteria. Evosoft is expected to begin moving into the building near the foot of Rákóczi Bridge in Buda in December 2020. Some 19,400 sqm will be used to create office and research lab space for evosoft Hungary’s software developers. The building also includes a four-level underground parking garage, able to accommodate 520 automobiles.
One distinctive feature of the new office building is that a large opening in the simple, polished glass facade will open a window of sorts towards the Danube, offering special views even for offices facing the courtyard and located in the rear part of the building. The service units on the ground floor and the green, interior courtyards are accessible from the lobby. To create a special atmosphere, there are large green areas on the rooftop and balconies, in addition to trees planted around the building.
Evosoft’s new HQ is located next to the Ericsson Building, another WING development. The completion of the project also rounds off Infopark, Budapest’s defining R&D focused office park.
The proximity of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics and the Faculty of Informatics of the Eötvös Loránd University of Sciences – two institutions training the IT experts of the future – was a decisive factor when selecting the location of the building, according to the press release.
Noah Steinberg, chairman and CEO of WING Zrt. highlighted, “It has always been a priority for us to create buildings which are in line with the objectives of the tenant companies and the expectations of the people who will work in them. Despite the extraordinary circumstances encountered in 2020 and the resulting challenges, the building was completed according to schedule and by the deadline specified. Developed by WING and constructed by KÉSZ Kft., it is fully tailored to evosoft’s needs. Thanks to our colleagues’ outstanding performance, evosoft Hungary Kft., a Siemens subsidiary, will soon be able to move into one of the most innovative and modern headquarters buildings in Hungary.”
Evosoft Hungary deals with industrial software development in the fields of automation technology, integrated propulsion controls, medical imaging, electric vehicles, and energy technology. The HQ will provide a home to evosoft’s almost 1,400 employees.
