Central District Lagoon City Bucharest
Revitalization of urban area by reconverting unused land and transforming it into residential, recreational (lagoon, gardens, etc.), commercial, hotel (5 stars) and office areas, resulting in the sustainable response to the increase of the population pressure on urban areas. The entire idea of the project is built around the Crystal Lagoon concept – a pioneering, highly innovative and sustainable technology that has been patented worldwide, built and maintained at very low costs, using a minimum amount of additives and energy.
Forty has designed a complex project (residential, commercial, hotel, recreational and office buildings) that will revolutionize the Romanian market, improve local tax revenues by raising the value of the properties being developed, by bringing in viable owners, by generating sales taxes through commercial development, by employing taxpaying citizens, and by creating innovative amenities like a beach area within the city, that will increase the value of surrounding properties.
The Project will pay special attention to sustainable building practices and operations and will be designed as a green building for both the retail and office components of the mixed-use complex.
The buildings would be self-sustainable in terms of energy, aligned with the highest European standards and adapted to the modern way of living; renewable sources for heating, domestic hot water, electricity and cooling will be used.
