Last November, we also reported that the new main square of Zugló would be implemented in Bosnyák Square, to which a new district would be connected as a private investment in the area between Bosnyák Square and Rákos Creek. The construction of the city center received a building permit last week, 20 April, and was previously declared a priority investment from a national economic point of view.

As a central element of the investment, a new complex of buildings will be built in the renewable Bosnyák Square, which will include a state-of-the-art specialist clinic measuring 8,000 square meters, a town hall measuring 5,300 square meters, and a 5,600-square-meter market hall. In addition, an underground garage will be built throughout the building complex, and communal spaces and lots of green space will be created on the surface.

Behind the new city center, a new neighborhood will be built, which will form an integral part of the new city center. Here, in addition to plenty of new residential buildings and office buildings, a shopping street with many shops, restaurants and cafes has been envisioned. In addition to the community spaces, plenty of new green space will be created in the new neighborhood as planned, and hundreds of trees will be planted between the buildings. Rehabilitation of the affected section of the Rákos stream is also part of the investment. The name of the new district will be Zugló City Center.

The renovation of Bosnyák Square could start later this year and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023, the beginning of 2024. The new district would be completed in several stages and is expected to be completed in 2029.
