The shop center is located in high proximity to the centre of Bucharest, in Cotroceni neighbourhood, one of Bucharest’s most affluent and desirable residential districts, where the Presidential Palace, the Romanian Parliament and the “Politehnica University” are located. The project is situated at the intersection of two of Bucharest’s main traffic arteries; Timisoara and Vasile Milea Boulevards, which are two of the busiest thoroughfares in Bucharest.
AFI Cotroceni enjoys excellent public transport connections with Polytechnic metro stop some 250 meters (M3 line) from the project in addition to 12 different bus and tram lines that service the shopping center. A new Metro line currently under construction (Drumul Taberei – Universitatii Square– Pantelimon), will provide an additional station, “Orizont”, that will be located 200 meters from the shopping center, towards Timisoara Boulevard, thus making the project the only one in Bucharest to be served by 2 different metro lines and 2 separate metro stops from both entrances of the shopping center.
