Low-key, clear-cut and contemporary architecture by renowned Austrian architects Delugan Meissl, excellent transport links, a perfectly balanced combination of uses and numerous attractive recreation areas on the doorstep – just some of the highlights of the VIENNA TWENTYTWO project, which will add a distinctive note to the city’s 22nd district. Construction work on the ensemble began in February 2019. The 15,000m² property was designed by joint venture partners SIGNA and ARE Development, a subsidiary of Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft (BIG).
Scheduled for completion in 2023 and located at one of northern Vienna’s main transit nodes, the new quarter comprises six elements with a connecting ground-level zone. The outdoor spaces are the work of a landscape designer – extensive greening and quiet areas create an inviting atmosphere, including the Green Salon with adjoining pavement café. This mixed-use development features apartments, offices, a hotel, cafes and restaurants, as well as a range of stores tailored to users’ needs. There are also direct links to the recreation areas in the Prater park, Donaupark and the Alte Donau area, and on the Danube Island.
The new quarter includes top-quality rental and freehold apartments ranging in size from compact units to flats with generously proportioned layouts. The modern property will also have communal rooms, a gym and a shared terrace. Although VIENNA TWENTYTWO has outstanding links to the transport network – the city centre is only ten minutes away by car or public transport, the Danube two minutes away, and the journey to the airport takes only 20 minutes – the ground floor area will be traffic-free, considerably enhancing residents’ quality of life.
The project also goes above and beyond when it comes to sustainability. VIENNA TWENTYTWO’s energy system is designed to conserve resources as far as possible. Building cooling systems and the use of groundwater heating also underline the project’s eco-friendly credentials. The aim is to obtain ÖGNI certification for the entire ensemble, as well as LEED certification for the office property and the hotel – a marker for efficient and effective building management.
