[Budapest] Millenniumi Városközpont / Millennium City Center

The Millennium City Center site is situated on the last large vacant parcel of riverfront land in Budapest. It is located on the Pest (commercial) side of the river just south of Budapest's big ring road, at the terminus of a regional commuter train and near the road to the airport. Originally the 1996 World Exposition, jointly hosted with Vienna, was to be located on the site. The Expo never materialized and TriGránit purchased the 5.5 hectare site in 2000 from the two owners - the Hungarian Treasury, and the Hungarian Oil Company (MOL).

The government has been actively involved in the development of the site to date, with the Hungary's new National Theatre (developed by the Ministry of Culture) open on one of the parcels and the Cultural Complex currently under development by TriGránit forward purchased by the State. The remainder of the project will incorporate residential, cultural, hotel, and office uses into one large-scale development that will be constructed according to market demand.

The area of the Millennium City Center is approximately 10 hectares including 11 individual plots. The developer of this new city center with a total built-in potential of 450,000 m˛ is Duna Sétány Székház Kft, a project company of TriGránit.The Convention Complex of the Millennium City Center will be built in the Southern part of the development housing a 10,000-seat congress center, a casino and a medicinal and recreational spa. A Multifunctional Exhibition Hall will be located on the southern corner site next to the Convention Complex while 2 international hotels will be located to the North of it. Closest to the riverbank in the south corner is the Palace of Arts, which serves as the home of three major cultural institutions: the Festival Theatre, The National Concert Hall and The Ludwig Museum. The current plans feature a central square at the Haller street junction with a view over the Danube, further emphasized by 2-3 office towers. On the Northern plots, between Petőfi Bridge and the Haller street junction two luxury residential buildings buildings can be found. Underground garages will serve the parking needs of the scheme.

It is the intention of the developer to appoint recognized Hungarian architects for the architectural design on the Millennium City Center involving foreign consultants on an as-needed basis. The image of the whole project aims to give modern urban architecture a human face with public parks, works of art on display, green areas and fountains. The design takes full advantage of the unique riverbank location, emphasizing the imminence to nature with a design that is visually and functionally open to the Danube. The Millennium City Center blends different functions and aesthetical designs aiming to take on the architectural challenges of the 21st Century with success.



Exclusive Residences on the Danube - Duna-Pest Residences



As a part of Millennium City Center luxurious condominiums were created in the heart of Budapest. Due to the ideal location, the complete panorama of Buda is visible from the windows of these exceptional condominiums, from the southern part of Buda, up to the Buda Castle and beyond.
The two buildings are attached on the first floor with a glass corridor to make the exclusive service offerings accessible from both buildings. Duna-Pest Residences feature such deluxe amenities as a state-of-the-art controlled access system, full-service concierge, full maintenance service, valet parking and thermal water within the building. The buildings also feature remarkably appointed facilities including fitness center, spa, squash, game room, wine cellar with private lockers and a library. Furthermore, the building's residents can enjoy a private pool with sun patio and a thermal pool.

The restaurants and commercial units at ground level also offer a variety of services. At 30 meters above the ground, on the top of the building, there are secluded green havens. These roof gardens built as part of the penthouse suites with a superb view of Budapest.

Duna-Pest Residences at the Millennium City Center, a dual building, luxury residential development includes approximately 310 suites that will offer floor plans ranging from 30 to 240 square meters with final layout and buildups arranged at the owner's requests.

Further information and detailed floor plans are available on the Duna-Pest Residences website (www.dunapest.hu).
















Riverside Offices

As part of Millennium City Center, close to 100,000 m˛ of office space is being built in the comming few years. Starting from 2006, we are planning to hand over around 20,000 m˛ of office space yearly.

Riverside offices

This prestigious twin tower glass complex is situated in the heart of Millennium City Center. The office building will provide over 18,500 m˛ of leasable Class "A" space over eight floors with efficient floor plates of 1,300 m˛. Design features include high-speed elevators, "state of the art" heating and cooling systems, and ample secured underground parking within the building complex. The offices will be part of a campus of buildings that will total over 450,000 m˛ when Millennium City Center is fully completed. Several prestigious buildings exist or are under development already including the new National Theatre, The Ludwig Museum, The National Concert Hall, the Festival Theatre and the luxurious Duna-Pest Residences. Soon to come will be one of the largest conference centers in Central Europe, including hotels, leisure and entertainment facilities.

Project highlights

• 18,500 m˛ leasable area on 8 floors
• 1,300 m˛ floor plates
• Units available from 280 m˛
• Over 180 parking spaces

The railroad tracks (Actually those are the tracks of the HÉV, its someting like RER in Paris) will be removed, and a cool promenade is planned to repace them after the 5 metro line is - hopefully - going to be built.

In a sense yeah, but i still enjoy some smaller cities, which have fantastic atmosphere, like Pécs or Esztergom or even a tiny one, Szentendre. Btw, from Slovakia it shouldnt take more than 2-3 hours for you to get to Budapest. I'm visiting your country quite regularly, we are going on Saturday as well (just to the closest town, Párkány).

I love Szeged! The city is wonderful, the women are beautyful, and whole place has a great atmosphere.

Bikes, I love the idea. To have a lunch in Párkány/Sturovo is a fantastic programme.

BTW FZ20 is a very good cam,I was thinking on buying that type, but I figured its still not an SLR camera...
So I promised myself Nikon D80 will be my next one sometime in the future...

Hello Qtya, just wondering: how do you know that the tracks of HEV will be removed when the Metro Line 5 is in place?

I will move in in the "organic" buiding called Castrum Haz from beginning April.

The view is already very cool now, but of course with a promenade instead of the HEV tracks, it would be even more fantastic.

I really like the development of the Millennium City Center so far, and I'm very curious to see it finished one day in a future not too far away...

Very nice project, but they should plant trees and other greenery (especially on the river bank), otherwise the place looks dead. It's very similar to the Eurovea project in Bratislava which is also next to the Danube and also includes the new national theatre.

I work for an international communication office. In fact in doesn't matter where I live in Europe, most meetings are in the States anyway.
As we are opening a small Budapest unit on Soroksari Ut. and I always loved Budapest, it seemed a great idea to live a few years in Budapest.
It's very central - just 2 hours flight from Brussels (it takes sometimes more time to drive out of Brussels on a weekday then to land in Budapest).
I really love the city, and Castrum is a great place to live. Of course I'll post some pics from the moment we move in. Or even better: I'll invite you over on a drink when our place is ready (I guess 2nd weekend of April).
I've already invited some aam (ask about money) members, so it would be cool if you guys could join our club.
So Qtya, Bikes & Co living in "the pearl of the Danube", hope to meet you
