The new metro line in Bucharest serves 150.000 residents and 20.000 employees

The Râul Doamnei – Eroilor section of the M5 metro line, inaugurated in September, will shorten the travelling time for 150.000 Bucharest inhabitants who live near the 10 newly built stations, also offering a quick travel alternative for almost 20.000 employees working in companies whose office buildings’ headquarters are located in the Eroilor – Progresului – Politechnica areas.

The Râul Doamnei, Constantin Brâncuși, Valea Ialomiței and Romancierilor metro stations, located at the western end of the new metro line, each have a catchment area of between 18.000 and 22.000 people who can access the metro within a 10-minute walk, according to data from the Cushman & Wakefield Echinox real estate consulting company.

At the opposite end, the residential density decreases to 8.000 – 10.000 inhabitants near the Orizont, Academia Militară and Eroilor stations, as these areas are office development hubs.

Buildings with a total leasable area of 191.000 square meters are located in the extended vecinity of these metro stations, including here the projects from the Progresului (AFI Tech Park and Green Gate) and Politehnica (Campus 6, The Light) areas where between 18.000 and 20,000 employees work under normal circumstances.

Moreover, additional spaces of around 200.000 square meters are curently planned or under construction in those areas.

The largest projects under construction are One Cotroceni Park (75.000 sq. m that will be delivered in two phases near the Academia Militară metro station) and Campus 6.2 and 6.3 (41.000 sq. m which can be accessed both via the Politehnica metro station, as well as via the new Orizont metro station, located at around 1 kilometer away).

The Râul Doamnei – Eroilor section has a total length of 7.2 km and is the first part of the M5 metro line that should connect the Drumul Taberei and the Pantelimon neighborhoods.
