Wing’s Liberty Building Receives Use Permit
Wing’s mixed-use flagship property development, Liberty, has received its use permit, welcoming its first tenants in the office area and continuing development on the dual-branded combo hotel.
“With the handover of the office areas in the south wing, Liberty, our largest development at the moment, has reached a major milestone. The next step will be the opening of the dual branded hotel, where the finishing touches are underway. Once that is done, Liberty will officially become a multifunctional building,” says Gábor Angel, deputy CEO for office developments at Wing.
“Based on the market demand, the development of the north wing is currently being expanded by a further 20,000 sqm space, where there is interest from potential tenants,” he adds.
Liberty is located in Budapest’s District IX, right next to the Telekom headquarters, and its development will be completed in two phases. The first phase includes the completion of the south wing of the complex, which will offer a total of 10,000 sqm of floor space, with category A+ offices on floors 1-4, and a dual-branded combo hotel (the 3-star ibis Budapest Stadium and the 4-star Tribe Budapest Stadium) and retail units on the ground floor and on floors 5-8.
The office area of Liberty has received its use permit, and the first tenants, eMAG and Geodis, have already moved into the building. In addition to the arrival of international tenants, a 360 sqm Focivilág and Absolute Teamsport retail store will open, the first in Hungary.
With the handover of this section of the building, an underground parking garage with 650 parking spaces will also become available. The parking garage will offer public parking, bicycle racks and changing rooms, with ShareNow services to arrive later in the summer.
Tenants can use the inner garden and the outdoor furniture provided, as well as the green area between Liberty and the Telekom building. eMAG Easybox and Foxpost parcel lockers will also be available in the building, and employees can visit the restaurants and the café in the Telekom headquarters next door.
Metro 3 offers a direct connection to the city center for commuting employees, while tram 1, which passes right in front of the building, provides another alternative. Domestic and international lines are available from Népliget Bus Terminal and Ferencváros Railway Station. The Lurdy Ház shopping center is just a few minutes away, and there are several grocery stores and several sports facilities and cultural attractions in the vicinity.
Liberty was designed by DPI Design, and civil engineering works were performed by HBM. Swietelsky Hungary was responsible for completing the structure, and Bernecker is the general contractor for the final works. The technical inspector of the project is the VL Engineering Office.
