Houses built between 1945 and 1980, housing estates, hostels and Communist Party offices, are now part of a preservation project recently announced by the City. In all, some 180 properties are under consideration, such as the Hilton Hotel in Buda Castle, Déli station and the cylindrical Hotel Budapest.

According to the initiative, nearly 200 buildings would become heritage-protected, including monuments whose preservation is justified by professional considerations and their historic importance. Some have a unique place in the cityscape. With this proposed new ruling, they cannot be demolished.

The facilities on the list include the main building of Déli station, the Hilton Hotel at Buda Castle, all the post-war residential buildings around it, the stations along the Children's Railway on Széchenyi Hill, Hotel Budapest in District II and the VERTESZ electricity company headquarters on main Buda avenue, Fehérvári út.

A pioneering block of flats in Óbuda, a housing estate on Fiastyúk utca and Lehel utca can also be part of this local protection plan. Many of the post-war facilities proposed for preservation are modern buildings, mostly residential houses, but health and industrial institutions, Party headquarters in District II and in Csepel, bistros, schools, former hostels and the Hungarian Theatre building are also listed for the major project.
