Regarding the design of the Corvin Offices, the developer follows the concept of 'Everything in one place' already known at Corvin Promenade; here, all the services will be found within a walking distance of 5 minutes. The inner city location at the junction point of Üllõi Boulevard means excellent access both by public transport and motor vehicles. The vicinity of the airport corridor further improves the advantages of the office buildings because Ferihegy Airport is only a distance of 20 minutes by car. The Promenade itself, of a length of 700 metres and a width of 36 metres, provides the speciality of the new quarter, which also offers entertainment opportunities to employees working here, in the form of a walk or a chat in the local restaurants. The proximity of Corvin Science Park means a further advantage to the companies that wish to move there, which providing the opportunity for entering into research & development and scientific relations with universities and research institutes located here.
It was an important aspect of the selection to choose consulting companies that have acquired the appropriate domestic and international experiences and that do not only regard their participation in this monumental programme as a routine task but also consider it as a challenge." said Judit Varga, Sales Manager of Futureal Real Estate Development Ltd.
