Residential Area Importance in Fast Growing Sofia

by : John Adam

Numbers show that the population of Sofia is rapidly growing to over 2 million or around 40% from the total population of Bulgaria. In the recent years, it has witnessed the process of enormous activity in housing construction, with new apartment buildings appearing extremely fast, however, often at the expense of much slower development of the infrastructure in the region where new apartments are located. Thus, people often find themselves living in nice, but isolated areas, where the possession of a car is essential in order to have contact with the rest of the world, including even the simplest everyday things such as buying an aspirin. And when it comes to taking kids to the kindergarten or letting them play in the neighborhood, it gets all too complicated, as this was not taken into consideration in the building process. Having this in mind is therefore important when it comes to making the choice of the area in Sofia in which to settle.

From all residential areas in Sofia, there is one that stands out. The largest number of companies collected in one place, hypermarkets and a cinema complex at hand, plus further serious plans for construction of shopping centers, a metro station operational within two years and ring road improvement plans for easier and faster connections to other parts of the city - this is how Business Park Sofia can de described today. Very fast, it has turned from an isolated area with business buildings when first open, to an increasingly attractive and popular place in Sofia today.

The area around Business Park Sofia has yet enormous opportunities for development, which investors have already started exploiting. Currently, a new combination of high quality residential property, office buildings, retail centre and leisure facilities, called City of Fountains is under construction just within 350m from the office buildings of the Business Park. Judging from the plans of the investors, this will be a unique place in Sofia, as it offers something much more than just apartments to live in. When finished, it will be a small city of its own - a careful balanced combination between residential apartments, trade and office buildings, recreational centers, cafes and restaurants, kindergarten, and of course - excellent shopping opportunities.

With this structure and with this location, City of Fountains will be the settler of new standards when it comes to the choice of contemporary successful people who look for apartments in Sofia. Inside, it has everything that a family or a business person needs in the course of the day. And outside lies one of the fastest developing areas in Sofia, plus it has convenient connections to the Sofia city center, as well as the Sofia airport and the main roads outside of the city.
