WING to build Telekom Group’s new headquarters (HU)
WING Group and Magyar Telekom signed an agreement for the construction and long-term lease of the Telekom Group’s new 55,000 m² headquarters building in Budapest.
The new building, a state-of-the-art, 21st-century facility that is being custom-built to suit the needs of the country’s leading telecommunications service provider, is scheduled for completion in the second half of 2018. The lease agreement has a term of 15 years.
Thanks to the new headquarters building’s easily accessible location, energy efficient equipment and a range of solutions that serve to provide a healthy working environment, it will be one of the country’s most innovative office buildings, and is being built with sustainability in mind. It is also Hungary’s largest office development project to be implemented in the form of a single building block, which according to plans, will accommodate most of the employees of Telekom and T-Systems.
The new Telekom headquarters is especially significant in terms of its impact on the cityscape, as it will serve as the gateway to the city center for those arriving from Ferenc Liszt International Airport and will be one of the city’s most prominent buildings. TIBA Architectural Studio have taken care to ensure that the office building to be constructed on the site at Kálmán körút 34-36 and the neighbouring Groupama Arena building do not compete with each other, but that they co-exist harmoniously. Due to its location, the site of the headquarters building is easily accessible by car, or on foot thanks to the excellent public transportation links.
