Data and description

    Planning for the Kelenföld City Center began in 1969. István Zilahy and József Bada designed a lively, busy, ‘bustling’ complex in the middle of the Kelenföld residential area in order to avoid the ‘commuter town’ examples of large cities. Thus the ‘anti-commuter town’ experiment was born. The shopping center was built from ‘74 to ‘79, and the market, the Etele (later the Olimpia) cinema and the Budapest Cultural Center started operating in the year of its inauguration.
