The building of the MOL Campus started in October 2019 and will be completed along with the BudaPark project that started in 2018. In the case everything goes as planned, the Campus will be inaugurated this year. The office building designed by Foster+Partners will be the new headquarters of the MOL Group. The building is located on the northern bank of Lágymányosi Bay, next to the Kopaszi Dam and Infopark.
Now, let’s see the numbers. The tower will be 28 floors high, with the highest part accessible to people at 120 metres, and the total height of the building will be 143 metres.
