Wherever we build, we bring the people together. We plant ideas that will into grow modern urban experiences designed for people.
MORE THAN JUST URBAN DEVELOPMENT: EVOLUTION
Iulius Town has transformed an abandoned industrial area in Timișoara into one of the most daring urban landscapes in Romania, with skyscrapers reminiscent of the panorama of major metropolises around the world. The novelty of the architectural project is originally complete by innovative green spaces, breathing the warmth of the proximity between man and nature into the soul of an ultramodern complex.
The carefully groomed and set up linden trees delineate a perimeter of free shapes, in opposition to the sky-high buildings of the new city. An 800 square meters lake set in the heart of the garden is the attraction surrounded by various destinations, ranging from playgrounds for children to paved areas, a gazebo and an extensive lawn designed to accommodate events and shows. The park alleys lead towards pergola-shaded relaxation corners, stunning pockets of vegetation, or a unique fountain sculpted in marble by an Italian artist.
From the south side, both the visitors and the 5,000-plus employees get to the park flanked by pyramidal oak trees, passing by two octagonal iron pavilions that are perfectly integrated in the overall landscape, as well as by a variety of roses.
A COMPLEX PROJECT,
THAT WILL STAND THE TEST OF TIME
The unique challenge in developing this park was its position atop the underground parking lot and the traffic underpass, but identifying ingenious solutions to overcome logistic challenges is integral to how we thought out the complex. The sustainable impact of a genuine green space is a priority for all the projects developed by Iulius Group. Our approach to time does not rely on temporary solutions for specific issues, instead being focused on leaving our green mark as a lasting landmark. Everything was planned in great detail and long before starting the works. The lemon trees planted in Iulius Gardens were selected six years before the grand opening and were constantly nursed until their current shape that we are now able to enjoy. Even the underground landscape was transformed into an urban gallery showcasing graffiti works signed by international artists, thus turning an abandoned area into a lively and vibrant space given back to the community.
The park was created by a team of specialists from Italy, Germany, and Romania. The 1,400 mature trees were delivered from Italy using approximately 500 trucks and planted nearby for acclimating purposes, and then they would be planted in their final location – which has meanwhile become one of the destinations of choice for the people of Timișoara. In addition to these trees, the vegetation in Iulius Gardens also includes 10,000 shrubs and 45,000 decorative plants.
DEVELOPED BY IULIUS GROUP,
DESIGNED FOR EVERYONE
In the park, children can enjoy a double decker Venetian carousel, and in winter time visitors can have a great time at an ice skating rink. The 8.7 million Euro garden in Iulius Town is not only an entertainment and leisure venue for visitors, but a material proof of our values and our passion which help us see all our projects as added value in the life of a community.

We like to meet up in the liveliest part of the city, where creativity and daring projects have their own special place. There’s always something for you in Iulius Gardens: concerts, exhibitions, new leisure ideas, or simply getting to see your loved ones again.

BRINGING NATURE INTO YOUR CITY
We planted hundreds of thousands of trees, flowers and square meters of lawn for those who join us in helping the city grow. Green spaces belong among the people, which is why we designed such spaces as natural oases and explosions of colors right where you are. We are building experiences designed for people. Our Iulius Gardens have thus helped us turn nature into our ally everywhere we go.
