About the Corvin Promenade

Central Europe's largest urban regeneration project. The project has seen the renovation of a total of 22 hectares of land, with 2,700 new apartments, 130,000 m2 of office space and 50,000 m2 of commercial real estate. The commercial units are mainly located in the Corvin Plaza shopping mall, while the total value of the development stands at EUR 920 million.

The Corvin Promenade, designed by the renowned English landscape architect Robert Townsend, is an internationally recognised and award-winning location. In 2010, it won the award for the Best Mixed-Use Real Estate Project at the International Property Awards, as well as first place at the Real Estate Prix d’Excellence Awards for the Hungarian branch of FIABCI. In 2014, it won the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Global Award for Excellence, known as the Oscars of property development.

This joint project with the local government is thought to be the largest urban renewal project in Central and Eastern Europe. It is situated in an area that barely a decade and a half ago was characterised by poor quality, a low level of convenience and dilapidated housing, with the entire neighbourhood considered a disreputable and anonymous quarter.

The Corvin Promenade, the focal point of the revitalised Corvin Quarter,

is a clean, ordered and safe area, featuring restaurants with terraces, cafes and shops alongside human-centred spatial design solutions and green spaces. An environment has been created that is at the same time friendly and convenient and vibrant, full of life and totally liveable. A true city centre promenade and a paradise for pedestrians.

For the local residents, in addition to stops for the 4/6 tram route and Metro 3, the carefully designed local area offers a wide range of services to enjoy, making it one of the most popular meeting points in the entire city.


This new central location contains one of Europe’s most beautiful and well maintained building environments, offering a new quality of life for local residents and workers. Budapest’s widest promenade is surrounded by public spaces and interior courtyards, while all the cars are located in underground car parks so the pavements can be given over entirely to foot traffic.

The development's key areas

The Corvin Promenade

The promenade lends its name to the revitalised urban neighbourhood and has become an iconic symbol of the link between the new public spaces and functional areas. Corvin Promenade is longer than Váci Street (800m) and wider than Liszt Ferenc Square (36m).

Newly built Cordia apartments

More than 2,700 new apartments, designed and equipped to meet all possible needs, have been built along the promenade and Nagytemplom Street. In the last ten years, the price per square metre for Corvin Promenade properties has doubled, with rental income significantly higher than for other properties in the local area.

Corvin Promenade’s glass-covered section, the shopping street

Supermarkets, fashion and sports clothing stores, technical stores, drug stores, dry cleaning, fast food restaurants, pharmacies, jewellers, hobby and toy stores, home furnishings, mobile phone shops, gift shops, boutiques, grocery and fruit shops all await visitors to Corvin Plaza.

Hospitality on the Corvin Promenade

Approximately 10,000 m2 of restaurants, pubs and smaller shops are situated on the ground floors of the Corvin Promenade residential buildings.

Corvin Sport and wellness

Adjacent to Corvin Promenade, sports enthusiasts can find one of Budapest’s most impressive sport, fitness and wellness centres, complete with a swimming pool and spread across more than 2,800 m2.

The architecture of the Corvin Promenade

Corvin Promenade is an urban regeneration project in the heart of Budapest that is unique in Europe. At the request of the Józsefváros Municipality, which initiated the project, sociologists, preservationists, environmentalists, transport developers and architects worked together to find a solution that would result in significant change to both the built environment and the quality of life in the district.

Pubic security and sanitation

The camera surveillance system was expanded and a local security service was established.

In line with EU standards, the Corvin Promenade is home to several selective waste collection islands, as well as numerous public litter and dog litter bins.

One of the key tasks of taking care of the public areas of the quarter is to ensure the cleanliness of the streets.
