Vienna, February 10, 2021 – SIGNA and Allianz Real Estate are celebrating their success in renting out the landmark property THE ICON VIENNA. A few days ago, the prominent Campaigning Bureau and Greiner agency, a global leader in plastic and foam solutions, moved in. The mix of utilisations will be complemented by the “Delegation of the European Union to International Organisations in Vienna” next spring.
“Flexible, modern offices that allow for different forms of future work will continue to remain in demand. Our most recent rental successes confirm that our strategic orientation was correct: prestigious office properties in prime locations with optimal public transport connections and exclusive amenities. I am delighted with this success, and we will continue on this path,” says Christoph Stadlhuber, Austria CEO of SIGNA Real Estate.
A total of over 5,000 people work in the building complex, which has floorspace of around 75,000 m². At this point, more than 97% of THE ICON VIENNA has been rented out – just a few units, measuring around 450 m2, are still available.
With its three towers (88 m, 66 m and 38.50 m high, respectively), THE ICON VIENNA is an architectural landmark in Vienna’s cityscape. The three towers are connected by a shared basement zone that features an attractive meeting area and demand-oriented retail and gastronomic facilities. As the only office building on site, the project has direct access to Vienna’s underground and suburban railway network and to the long-distance trains of the Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) as well as to BahnhofCity with all its infrastructure facilities. The connection to the high-quality transport network is also excellent.
This is supplemented by well-developed cycle paths. The uniqueness of this multi-use property developed by SIGNA and acquired by Allianz Real Estate on behalf of several Allianz insurance companies is also underscored by its prominent location in this new district. Since the building is embedded in the Belvedere district, residents can enjoy the excellent infrastructure – transport connections, local shopping, service and leisure facilities – which gives this location an optimum quality of work and life. All these reasons have prompted numerous reputable companies to decide to relocate their headquarters to this attractive new business location in Vienna.
