Eiffel Square Office Building and Park in the heart of Budapest next to the West Railway Station, has opened its doors with six prestigious new office tenants. HAYS Recruitment will start their operations in August. SONY AXN, ESAB, AES Hungary, Eiffel Medical Centre and DJuice new headquarters are already in operation.
At street level, the long awaited Costa Coffee flagship is setting a new standard with its plush first floor lounge and WiFi service. Tesco Express, the BioBolt health goods store, the newly opened Eiffel Pharma pharmacy and the carwash provides the occupants and visitors of Eiffel Square with true in house convenience store amenities. In addition, the DJuice U26 and “Mix” restaurant, cocktail bar and event centre on the Square will shortly be fully operational. The developers, ConvergenCE / DVM Group expect to round off the convenience for office occupiers of Eiffel Square with a laundry and other services.
Commenting on the current state of progress of the scheme, Alan A. Vincent, Managing Director of developer ConvergenCE stated: “Eiffel Square is the next step up in terms of city centre offices in Budapest. Tenants are recognising not only its excellent location and quality but also its unique micro environment of the tranquil Park and the convenience of having restaurants and all the daily necessities for office workers in-house. The project is now 50% leased and strong interest is being shown for the remaining office space in the building.”
Eiffel Square can still accommodate tenants from 300 m² to 14,000 m². While not making a big deal about its green credentials, Eiffel Square is aiming for a LEED certification and benefits from bike storage, washrooms and a number of “green” initiatives including extensive green roofing. Internally, the design aims to provide a clean contemporary image with the use of the high quality recycled materials in reception areas, lift lobbies and office spaces.
