Global real estate consultant Cushman & Wakefield (C&W) has successfully represented Diageo, the world's leading premium drinks business with an outstanding collection of international brands across spirits, wine and beer, in their office lease renewal on 8,290 sq m in West End Business Center (WEBC) owned by AEW Europe, one of the leading European real estate asset and investment managers.
In addition to the 8,290 sq.m office space Diageo has also renewed their contract for 99 parking spaces.

David C. Carter, Corporate Property Director at Diageo commented: "We are happy with C&W's contribution to the lease renewal in West End Business Center. We chose to stay in our existing office space, since the building meets all our real estate needs and offers a perfect working environment for our 700 employees at an appropriate cost. The extension of the lease also reflects Diageo?s ongoing investment and commitment to Hungary."
