The foundation stone of Millennium Gardens office complex has been laid
TriGranit launched construction of its new ‘Class-A’ office development, Millennium Gardens, which is the final element of the two-time FIABCI Award-winning Millennium City Center in Budapest. After its expected completion in 2020, the two-winged office complex, with unique architecture, will provide approx. 37,000 sqm GLA and more than 600 parking spaces for tenants, greatly emphasizing today’s employee and tenant needs. In 2018-2019, the company is working on the launch of four office developments in Central Europe. As for its size, Millennium Gardens is one of the biggest office development project in Budapest to be handed over till 2020. Within the coming 12 months, TriGranit plans the start of the construction of 77,000 sqm GLA office space in Central Europe.
TriGranit’s newest office development, the Millennium Gardens, will be constructed next to MÜPA Budapest, the National Theatre and the K&H Headquarters on the banks of the Danube, offering a remarkably spectacular view for its future tenants. The concept for the two-winged 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 special conditions. The white, blade-shaped elements situated between each level and along the sides not only make the four-sided facade extraordinary, but also enable the clarity in 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 the newest city utilisation trends, the 10-storey ‘Class-A’ office building will be equipped with storage for more than 200 bicycles as well as 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 healthy work-life balance as well as working 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 passengers, 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.
In addition to these, Millennium City Center has become a real town inside Budapest over the past decade – accessible nearby facilities include cafés, restaurants, fast food restaurants, fitness centres and even a health centre. Thanks to service units in the neighbourhood, employees can arrange several of their everyday tasks as well. The office building will be located in a uniquely maintained green area on the banks of the Danube, well-protected from car traffic and offering plenty of places nearby for relaxation, leisure and recreational activities, while the adjacent MÜPA Budapest, National Theatre and the nearby Budapest Park support cultural re-charge.
“Millennium Gardens office complex is the first TriGranit development in Hungary since 2011, so it is extremely special to us. Besides this project, we remain active abroad as well – our pipeline projects, together with Millennium Gardens, reach 107,000 sqm GLA in the CE region, including the construction of 77,000 sqm GLA office space that will start within the coming 12 months in Budapest, Krakow and in Katowice,” said Árpád Török, Chief Executive Officer, TriGranit.
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. The location of the office 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 centre is approachable within 15 minutes, and long-distance commuters also have a wide variety of options available when reaching the complex.
