BudaPart GATE is the first office building within Property Market’s BudaPart development designed with sustainability and state-of-the-art technology in mind. The building features innovative and environmentally friendly solutions including a high energy-efficient façade system, energy-saving lighting, energy-efficient mechanical solutions, water-saving irrigation and equipment, electric car charging ports, and expansive green areas for employee use.

This is the first LEED certificate in the BudaPart development. Colliers is also in the process of having BudaPart CITY (the second office building in the newest neighbourhood) certified LEED for Building Design and Construction.

- Projected energy consumption of the building 28% lower than the LEED baseline
- Projected water consumption 44% lower than the LEED baseline
