On Pestbuda, we recently introduced the Mol Tower under construction, which will be the first real high-rise building in Budapest.

When the Central Market Hall in Fővám Square was handed over in 1897, the leaders of the city believed that the process of food industry development and freight transport, which had been going on for decades at the time, had come to an end.
