The project at the Schweizergarten is the result of an invited competition that was held in mid-2015. The winner was the prestigious architectural office Delugan Meissl Associated Architects. On the basis of this urban concept, one of the residential towers included in the entry submitted by the internationally recognised architectural firm Coop Himmelb(l)au was subsequently integrated into the project to create a coherent complex, taking into account the jury's recommendations.
Situated directly by the large green area consisting of the Schweizergarten (Arsenal), the Botanical Garden, and the Belvedere Palace Garden, and adjacent to Vienna’s 3rd district (Landstraße) and 4th district (Wieden), wonderfully modern 2- to 6-room apartments and selection apartments as well as a lifestyle boutique hotel with 303 rooms were created by the end of March 2019.
The PARKAPARTMENTS AM BELVEDERE – the only project in Austria that had been designed by architect Renzo Piano up to that point – guarantee local recreation in the quiet location of the adjacent parks as well as the urban advantages of a central residential space. Located in the heart of Vienna, the apartments are only a 5-minute walk from Vienna’s central train station and thus also close to the underground system. There are perfect connections to all forms of public transport such as buses, trams and rapid transit rail.
The 342 apartments, starting from a floor area of 46 m², each with a balcony, loggia or terrace with fantastic views, offer space for different ways of life. The commission-free PARKAPARTMENTS AM BELVEDERE meet the needs of owner-occupiers as well as investors looking to buy an apartment as an investment.
Intelligent building services such as automated room temperature control, under-floor heating and ceiling cooling, smartly designed bathing oases and toilets equipped with state-of-the-art sanitation technology – a variety of modern living requirements have been taken into account by including practical details, such as an intelligent shading system with one-button operation and spacious cellar compartments with their own power supply.
The 94 installed EV charging stations with a total of 332 available parking spaces in the underground car park are also forward looking. Preparation work for an additional 63 EV charging stations has been completed.
The new ‘Quartier Belvedere’ district offers excellent local shopping seven days a week as well as a perfect infrastructure, varied culinary offerings in numerous restaurants and an exciting range of arts and culture in the nearby museums.
