Not what we said, the index writes:
The management of the capital is looking for a buyer for the huge valuable complex of buildings of the City Hall, which is under monument protection, the Index found out. Mayor Gergely Karácsony has come up with many ideas for the utilization of the City Hall, but the beating of the most valuable property of the City of Budapest has seemed unthinkable so far.
The Budapest Municipality, headed by Gergely Karácsony, is preparing to sell the City Hall building no less than a step further - the Index has been informed. According to our information
BUSINESS CIRCLES CLOSE TO THE COALITION LEADING THE CAPITAL HAVE ALREADY TAKEN THE FIRST STEPS TO SELL THE CAPITAL'S PROBABLY THE MOST VALUABLE PROPERTY.
Gergelyék Karácsony's plan is also surprising because at that time, according to the statement of Gábor Bagdy, the deputy mayor of finance of the resigning Fidesz city administration, they had access to about 180 billion forints of funds upon taking over the management of Budapest.
The construction of the grandiose building complex in question, located on a huge plot in the heart of the city center, dates back to the 18th century, according to the plans of the Italian-born Austrian architect Anton Erhard Martinelli. The building initially functioned as a military hospital, and later also housed a barracks, and was first used as a town hall in 1894.
The patinated building of the Town Hall is a listed building and is located in a tourist-frequented World Heritage Site, in addition to a specially protected archeological site, the old city wall, running through the plot.
The plot of about forty thousand square meters, currently bounded by Városháza utca, Gerglóczy utca, Károly körút and Bárczy István utca, with the topographical number 24357, is one of the most valuable properties in Budapest, the utilization of which could bring a considerable income to the buyer if manage to obtain the necessary permits to implement a for-profit project.
Occupying about forty percent of the area, the Baroque-style building complex is three-story, so it is about fifty thousand usable square meters in the central part of the capital's V district, where there are already many luxury hotels and upscale office buildings, so it's not hard to imagine an imaginative investor. even in such a huge investment.
THE CENTRAL POSITION AND SIZE OF THE PROPERTY INTENDED FOR SALE ALREADY PROJECTS TRANSACTIONS IN THE SIZE OF SEVERAL BILLIONS.
The mayor had previously had a number of proposals for the utilization of the town hall plot and the building on it, but these did not officially include the privatization of the property.
Speaking to the Index before the election of Gergely Karácsony, he said:
I'll open City Hall. There is a terrible message that the most valuable plot of Budapest is currently a car park. I want to lead a Budapest that is symbolically and in reality open. Following the examples of Western Europe, I would run an open town hall with a garden not a car park but a public park where NGOs also have offices, as well as space for cafes and other public spaces. Anyway, the mayor of Ljubljana specifically asked me to tell István Tarlós that there is a gay bar at the bottom of the Town Hall.
The mayor eventually rejected the idea of creating a public park and a gay bar, however, last May, at the time of the first wave of the coronavirus epidemic, he came up with the idea of creating a segregator in the building for the homeless. In the end, this idea became nothing.
Update: Karácsony wrote that the index is lying. Time will sort everything out, you can’t sell the City Hall building unnoticed, if you’re still preparing for that, we’ll know about it.
