SIGNA – Vienna, 02 October 2018 – SIGNA celebrates another big leasing success. L’ORÉAL Austria will relocate its new headquarters to the landmark office building THE ICON VIENNA at Vienna’s new Central Train Station. The world’s largest cosmetics manufacturer has signed a long-term lease for around 2,900 m² on two storeys in Tower 38 (38.5 m high). It plans to locate around 210 employees there, as of June 2019. L’ORÉAL is the world’s largest cosmetics manufacturer with a unique portfolio of 34 international, diverse and complementary brands.
THE ICON VIENNA at the new Vienna Central Railway Station not only enriches this urban business centre of Vienna, but also makes a defining architectural statement, consisting of three towers of different heights (88.00 m, 66.00 m and 38.50 m). The towers are connected by a shared base storey area, which will provide an attractive encounter area with retail outlets and restaurants to suit the needs and match the quality of the centre. The project is the only office building at the location with direct access to the public transport network of Vienna’s underground and urban railways, as well as to the main line system of Austrian Federal Railways and StationCity, with all its infrastructure facilities. Links to public and individual transport systems are just as good.
“L’ORÉAL Austria is relocating its headquarters after 16 years and moving into new office space in THE ICON VIENNA at the Central Train Station in the middle of next year. The branch is thus continuing its long-lasting expansion and taking into account the need to create ideal conditions for new, dynamic ways of working. What was decisive for the choice of the new location was the opportunity to obtain office space with the highest sustainability standards, in which sustainable, new ways of working can be implemented. L’ORÉAL is also one of the most sought-after employers in Austria, which is primarily due to the fact that we feel particularly committed to our employees”, said Country Manager Klaus Fassbender.
“We are pleased to have won L’ORÉAL Austria, one of Austria’s most attractive companies, as a tenant for THE ICON VIENNA. The fact that L’ORÉAL will move in as another tenant in June 2019 demonstrates the high desirability of our new, future-focused property”, stated SIGNA CEO Christoph Stadlhuber. “Our sustainable leasing success is a confirmation of our strategic orientation, which is to develop prestigious office properties in a prime location with good public access, exclusive facilities, and equipped with environmentally-friendly and cost-effective structures. I am pleased about this success, and we will continue on this promising path”, said Stadlhuber.
