Following its renovation implemented by WING, EuroCenter shopping mall will welcome shoppers from Spring 2022 under the name GOBUDA Mall. The main aim of GOBUDA Mall is to become the number one meeting point of those living in the area, where visitors can feel at home and have a unique shopping experience.
The Óbuda shopping mall EuroCenter is to be renewed under the name GOBUDA Mall, and is scheduled to reopen to visitors in Spring 2022. Thanks to WING’s renovation works, the mall will bring to North Buda a modern and people-oriented complex, which may become a popular community space in the area.
The aim of the renovation, both inside and out, is to make GOBUDA Mall a priority meeting point in Óbuda, and also offer a unique shopping experience.
In the building, to be almost completely rebuilt, visitors will be welcomed in a homelike, naturally lit interior space. In addition to well-known fashion brands, the shopping mall with nearly 100 shops in three levels is also offering its future visitors a wide range of culinary options, as well as banking and telecommunication services and a renovated movie theatre. The outstanding shopping experience will be enhanced by a green park of 2,000 square metres, complete with a playground, to be built on top of the building.
Interior spaces and restrooms in GOBUDA Mall will be fully accessible, and special parking spaces will be offered at several parking garage levels of the building to serve persons with mobility impairments and disabilities, as well as visitors with baby strollers. As opposed to the earlier building, the floors of the shopping mall will be connected by several elevators, escalators and walkways. In accordance with the pandemic situation, solutions serving to disinfect the building and touch-free functions will protect visitors’ health. In line with an environmentally conscious approach and sustainability, several bicycle racks, electric vehicle charging stations, as well as car sharing parking spaces and an automated package delivery station in the underground garage, will also be available.
