A new project announced in Bucharest some time ago this year:

Quote:
Project of largest leisure area in Europe to be launched in Bucharest on Monday

The Leisure Dome Bucharest project, to be launched on Monday, will cover a total surface of 400,000 sq m, with the investment having been estimated at 500 million euros, reads a release of the Domus M&D company.

The complex will host, during the entire year, such activities as ski, snowboarding, ice- skating, subtropical nautical sports, including surfing and diving, for the first time in the Central and Eastern Europe.

An indoor golf field, the single of the kind worldwide, will complete the Leisure Dome Bucharest world.

There will also be arranged here the largest simulation attractions area in Europe (3D, 4D, 5D, virtual reality, cinematography), wellness, fitness, tennis, an ample area of hypermarkets, restaurants and theme clubs, ice-bars, hotels, casinos, congress centers.

The Dutch Axion Lesiure Development and the Dutch architecture office Benthem develop the project. The funds will be attracted from institutional investors, local and international private investors, banks, structural funds and from the European Community.

Leisure Dome Bucharest will be 100 percent ecological, with Romania to be marked thus on Europe’s ‘green’ map and the world’s (carbon dioxide neutral, high level sustainability).

Wow! I was not aware that Bucharest had so many interesting projects. I had the opportunity to visit Romania in 1999 and then again in 2001 and the city has changed dramatically. Good for you guys!

I would say that given today's size of Bucharest, it's rate of growth and it's rate of development, the city could settle in a few years in a comfortable 2nd place in Eastern and Central Europe after Moscow.

That's quite an exagerration. Warshaw has far greater potential. And Budapest is also very important.

But, Bucharest just grew by another 100.000 inhabitants and got the 7th sector by the icorporation of Baneasa/Voluntari city into the capital last week:

Quote:

Baneasa City

The Baneasa project is one of the largest projects for urban development in Europe. With over 1 million m2 of construction area, used for different purposes, spanning across 221 ha of land, Baneasa will include an open and spacious residential area, a modern business park, and one of the largest commercial areas in South-East Europe.

The main values sustained by Baneasa are integration, quality, diversity, and “green”. Integration refers to the fact that Baneasa will be an integrated part of the capital city, an area open to all, and will ensure workplaces, living, working, and commercial spaces, benefiting all the residents of Bucharest. Quality refers both to the constructions that will exist in Baneasa, the materials used and the design, as well as to the quality of life it proposes – peaceful, close to nature, together with the family. Finally, Baneasa is “green,” in the sense that it will include in the architectural landscape over 50 ha of vegetation and choose a pro-ecological approach in everything it will create.

The Baneasa project represents an investment of over 1.2 billion euros, offering concrete solutions for the local community and beyond. Thus, by means of the 20 ha of public roads included in the project, it will ensure a better traffic flow in the area. Baneasa creates an additional source of income for the local and state administration budget of approximately 770 million euros from direct and indirect taxes.


Residential neighborhood
Open to all, Baneasa will offer 3000 living spaces, from apartments and row houses to individual houses, and the center of the community will cover all the needs of the residents, offering, among other things, a market and stores, schools, a church and sports facilities.
Baneasa has a singular architectonic unity – it will represent a mini-city built from the ground up, observing all the requirements of modern city-planning, where houses with large gardens and smart apartments will alternate with parks, playgrounds, and sports courts.
Baneasa will function according to a set of community rules that will help to create a safe and healthy environment, a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.


Baneasa Business & Technology Park
The Baneasa business park includes 11 modern and spacious office buildings, complete with the latest technological advancements. The whole complex is built in the middle of nature, using the idea of transparency as a starting point – one can see the forest through the large windows.
Built on a surface area of 160,000 m2, the park is ideally suited both for international companies’ headquarters, and for companies in the field of IT, advertising, video production, or web design as well. It is a place to work in, while remaining close to nature. The business park will also include a hotel complete with a conference room and restaurant, bars, a club, and 8000 parking spaces.


Baneasa Commercial
Located in an excellent area, the Baneasa commercial area will soon become a landmark for the residents of Bucharest. They will be able to spend their spare time here not only by shopping, but also by enjoying themselves with their families in an entirely singular entertainment center.
The commercial area is a first on the Romanian market, bringing together the most modern and practical commerce concepts, presently becoming a landmark for the residents of Bucharest. Developed on more than 170,000 m2, the commercial area will include a commercial center, a hypermarket, a cash&carry store, furniture galleries, do-it-yourself stores, an automobile showroom, etc. The commercial center is the resistance piece of the commercial platform, offering a unique blend of shopping, services, gastronomy for the most refined tastes, bringing a new lifestyle to its visitors.

Baneasa location
Located in the north of Bucharest, Baneasa will become the access gateway to Bucharest from the direction of the Henri Coanda International Airport, traveling on DN1.

The northern area of the city is the area that has developed the most in the latest years and has become the favourite among the residents of Bucharest, owing to the fact that it is located both in the vicinity of the forest and lakes, but also in the center of the city, at a 10 minutes’ drive. Part of the first district, Baneasa will be reachable using the road system, by car or by bus (6 lines will link Baneasa to the rest of Bucharest, and the ring road will be soon completed), and by light subway (the light subway development plans include a connection to the Henri Coanda Airport, which will mark the west side limit of the Baneasa neighbourhood).

Access to Baneasa will be available through 12 main points, 8 for the commercial and business area, on the western side, and 4 for the residential area. Baneasa will ease traffic flow in the area of Aleea Privighetorilor, and the local community will benefit from roads covering a total surface of 20 ha.

As it is to be expected that access to the new neighbourhood will be predominantly by car, increased attention is paid to facilities for internal traffic, access, and parking – which include pedestrian and bicycle passages, jogging tracks, as well as ultramodern street decorating.

Budapest is a great city but it is not large enough. Warsaw is a strong contender.

On the other hand, Bucharest will grow even further more in the next two decades because Romania is a country where the urbanization process is still in full swing, with a 50/50 rural/urban population. Nowhere near the end of the process. Romania is the most rural country in Europe as far as I know, only 2 years ago it crossed the 50% line (as far as i remember).

Urbanization in Romania is running at a very slow pace. In recent years a migration from urban areas to countryside has been observed indeed. All major cities lost their population in the last 10 years. Bucharest had over 2 million people 20 years ago and now it hardly comes close to that figure.
Immigration could be the last resource for a romanian urban boom. But I doubt this will hapen in the next decade.

The "migration" from urban to rural areas means in fact people from large cities moving into the communes around such cities where the phenomenon of urban sprawl is happening (I gave the example of Baneasa city above, which was built in a comune near Bucharest). In 5 years from now, the population of large cities will grow significantly due to this phenomenon and the "metropolisation" of major urban areas. For example, Bucharest will grow at 2.5 million, Cluj, Timisoara, Constanta, Iasi at 0.5-0.7 million people aso.

Quote:
Bucharest had over 2 million people 20 years ago and now it hardly comes close to that figure.
Bucharest is now "officially" (according to INSSE) at 1.9 million without taking into account the urban sprawl taking place all around it.

Quote:

It will happen because of "metropolisation" (expansion of large cities into metropolis) which is going on right now in the mentioned cities.
