​Apartments can Be Built on the Property of Rába Factory


Apartments are planned to be built on the 43-ha industrial area of Rába Automotive Holding Plc. in Győr. The preparation for the HUF 150-billion investment can begin next year; currently the costs of land arrangement are being calculated.

 According to the plans of Rába Automotive Holding Plc. a residential area will be built on the 43-ha industrial area of the factory in Győr. The preparation for the investment can be started in 2015, if the factory manages to get the costs of the rearrangement of the land located near the city center of Győr covered by money won on tenders. According to Rába CEO István Pintér in case it doesn’t happen the work can be postponed, since the company wouldn’t like to withdraw sources from their main activities. Currently the costs of the land arrangement are being calculated; the work is expected to cost several HUF 100 million. The leadership of the factory and the city announced in 2011 they were planning to build an urban residential area on the land. Since then they have been waiting for an investor who would buy the property, and use it for some development. The area located near Highway No. 1. and Moson Danube has an appropriate infrastructure, but it has to be renewed; but almost no wrecking is needed.
