Cosmopolis, the largest residential area in the north of Bucharest, was chosen the best residential project in Central and Eastern Europe in the international conference CIJ Europe Awards held recently in Prague, being the first distinction obtained internationally by a residential project in Romania.
Cosmopolis has completed approximately 2300 dwellings so far, and the project developed by Opus Land Development will put on the market at least 200 units by the end of this year. The total investment scrolled until now in the Cosmopolis development is around 280 million euros, which is one of the largest investment made in a real estate project in Romania.
“We develop through Cosmopolis the most complex residential project across the region, which will become a city project itself in the future. We already have a community that has about 4,500 inhabitants, a general unique infrastructure in Romania and future plans include the construction of at least 7,000 new homes and the continued development of facilities that we offer. The distinction obtained by Cosmopolis in Prague, and the extensive discussions about the Romanian real estate landscape that occurred there, show that Romania has become again an attractive market for the foreign investors” , said Ahmet Buyukhanli (photo), president of Opus Land Development, the project developer.
The sale prices of the apartments in Cosmopolis starts at 40.550 euros + 5% * VAT and of the villas from 81.800 euro + 5% VAT, and the facilities include a supermarket operated by Carrefour, kindergarten and primary school, several pools and tennis courts, a private beach on the lake near the assembly, a park and numerous commercial spaces and services. The residents benefit from transport to the Aurel Vlaicu and Pipera subway stations, and in weekends to Baneasa Shopping City, with special bus lines that run at an interval of one hour.

The company sold, at the time of designation as manager of Cosmopolis, over 1,300 apartments and villas in the project.
