Pipera is a district of Voluntari city, situated in the north part of Bucharest, Romania.Until 1995, it was an ordinary village. After that, an "el dorado" of land transactions began. Plots of land that were 1 USD/m² reached in 2005 the amount of 250 USD/m².
In this time, more than 1400 houses were built here, transforming Pipera in one of the most expensive residential areas. Because the inhabitants needed places to shop or to spend their free time, a shopping park was also built, so what initially started as a Carrefour and Bricostore, quickly developed into a Metro, a Selgross Cash & Carry, an IKEA and most importantly Baneasa Shopping City.
Pipera could easily organize itself as a city, due to the important number of population, the police station, the church, shopping places and a large number of offices for the big companies. The only one missing would be the City Hall.The district is served by Pipera metro station, the northern terminus of Bucharest Metro Line 2.The Pipera industrial center (Romanian: platforma industriala ) is on the site of a former airport (Aeroportul Pipera) from the interwar period.The tallest office building in the area is the Pipera Business Tower.
