Futureal Group has started the construction of the second phase of its €68m Advance Tower office project in Budapest, Hungary. The expansion of the office complex will offer an additional 8,000 m² of GLA. The completion is expected for the second half of 2019.
The first phase of Advance Tower offers 12,100 m² of office space and will be occupied by the tenants from June this year. The glass surfaces of the 8-storey, modern complex designed by Paulinyi-Reith & Partners Architectural Studio ensure the high proportion of natural light in the offices. Both phases of Advance Tower are equipped with smart solutions and sustainable technologies, therefore, intelligent building management, automated shading technology with sunshine exposure optimization, decentralized hot water supply, roof garden with smart irrigation system facility, and low-emission heating-cooling system can all be found in the office complex.
Advance Tower has acquired BREEAM certificate and the office complex has also been designed and will be operated according to WELL Building Standard.
“Futureal Group’s Advance Tower, Corvin Technology Park (Corvin 5) and Budapest One office buildings account for over 100,000 m² of office space in the Hungarian capital. These complexes are being realized based on the factors that have a beneficial impact on employees’ health and well-being. Innovations driven by WELL Building Standard will define the office market over the next decade, and Advance Tower is one of its pioneers in Hungary and in Europe,” said Tibor Tatár, CEO, Futureal.
