Scheme could be Hungary’s tallest building forever
A 120m office tower designed by Foster & Partners for Budapest will escape a proposed government ban on skyscrapers in the Hungarian capital, the prime minister’s office has confirmed.
The 28-storey tower was commissioned last year by oil and gas firm MOL Group as its new headquarters and will be the tallest building in Hungary.
The Office of the Prime Minister, the authoritarian Viktor Orban, last week announced it was planning to ban all buildings over 90m to “preserve the traditional profile of Budapest”.
