A letter of intent has been signed regarding the cooperation between the Municipality of Zugló and Echo Investment, which will be undertaken during the construction of 5 000 square meters of park, a new and environmental friendly shopping and entertainment centre, a brand new sports centre, and renovating the complete neighbourhood of Bosnyák tér. The technical conditions and the detailed scope of common works are under discussion, and will be finalized in the following quarter.
“We are proud that through the building of Mundo Gallery, we can be part of developing the new city centre of Zugló. According to our expectations, the construction of Mundo will provide more than 1,500 job opportunities in Zugló, while the functioning shopping centre will create more than 1,000 jobs. This means that around one quarter of all job seeking people in Zugló will be able to find a job in Mundo Center.

We are confident that the new shopping centre will be an integral part of life in Zugló in the short term.”- Said Ahmet Cetin Project Manager on behalf of Echo Investment.
Ferenc Papcsák, the Mayor of the XIVth district has emphasized:
“This agreement is an important step in the process that will make Bosnyák tér the new main square of Zugló. The first phase had been completed when the construction of the Páduai-Szent Antal church and the square behind it finished. The next steps are renovating the market, building the commercial and service centre and the construction of the new Lantos Mihály multi-functional sports centre. We are of the view that this project will benefit every resident of Zugló, as other renovations and building projects will start as well, raising the property values in the whole neighbourhood”
