Esplanada City Center is the name of a future multifunctional city center in Bucharest situated on the Unirii Boulevard not far from the Palace of the Parliament. Esplanada will provide shopping, living, working and leisure functions integrated into a mixed-use urban community.
The Romanian State has approved the Esplanada City Center Project. TriGránit Development Corporation will start construction works on the Esplanada Project in the second half of 2009. The government has approved this project by allowing a Private-Public Partnership. The entire project will become property of the Romanian State after 49 years of partnership, and at the end of the partnership TriGránit will have the option to buy the complex.
The tallest of the skyscrapers will have a roof height of 210 m (250 with the spire). There will be also a unique building shaped in the form of the Romanian sculptor Constantin Brâncuși's Endless Column.
The whole building complex including the mall will have a price tag of around US$ 4.2 billion and it will be paid by TriGránit and the Rothschild family.
