November 28, 2018 – GTC’s latest development, GTC

second office building which was awarded with the prestigious, highest level

GTC White House was
developed on the site of the 100-year-old former Schleck Elevator Factory, the
building has been refurbished and provides 2,000 sqm of redeveloped office
space in addition to 19,500 sqm of new offices.
site selection itself was a sustainable choice as a former brownfield area has
been redeveloped to a modern “A” category office building. Built on the Váci
Corridor, GTC White House has excellent public transportation opportunities
within a short walking distance, complemented by a bicycle lane passing by the
building. Plenty of bicycle racks, common area showers and changing rooms serve
the needs of environmentally conscious employees as well as electric car
chargers for the growing number of electric car owners. A large green roof,
rainwater harvesting for flushing toilets, a high efficiency HVAC system, good
thermal isolation, and above average volumes of fresh air to the occupants are
among the many factors that contributed to this success.” – explained Norbert Szircsák, Senior Associate of
