Quartiershäuser Sonnwendviertel

The new Sonnwendviertel south of Vienna's main train station comprises a total of around 5,500 apartments for about 13,000 residents, 20,000 jobs, a school campus, office buildings and numerous stores as well as a park of about 7 hectares. In the Sonnwendviertel to the west of the park, a perimeter block development with clear edges and protected inner courtyards was realized; the first apartments were occupied at the end of 2013.
