Orczy Fórum has by now become an individual quarter with nine buildings. Its history began with the hotel designed at 135 Baross street which eventually failed to come to existence due to the financial difficulties of the investor. Coordination of the work was taken over by the designing architect studio that acquired partial ownership in the project. In the past fifteen years 505 apartments, two office buildings and a parking building were erected on the premises under continuously altered programs depending on the ever-changing demand. Even though not many people were optimistic about the project due to the bad reputation of the neighborhood, the architects turned out to be right, and the quarter became well-populated and popular. Materials and shapes were chosen to fit the long-term plans: the colorful brick facades are not only pleasant to look at, but they are durable as well.
