Housing for the Young

>> For decades, the area of the former Leopoldau gasworks was characterized by hard work. At the same time, it also offered the workers places of community and neighborhood. Now the area will provide a new home for children and young people in particular. <<

GB*Neighborhood Management Neu Leopoldau


In 1912, the second municipal gasworks in Vienna was built in Leopoldau. In 1984-87, the two gasometers were finally shut down and demolished, while the residential and administrative buildings were largely preserved. Today, the ensemble is protected as a historic monument and, as a part of Vienna's industrial history, is a source of identity. The post-industrial reuse of this area, incorporating the existing buildings, shaped the planning here from the very beginning. This ranges from the preservation of bird species to the removal of pollutants to a mix of uses in the existing buildings.

Urban development in dialogue
In 2015, Neu Leopoldau Entwicklungs GmbH and wohnfonds_wien launched a two-stage developer competition, the largest dialog-oriented selection process in Vienna to date. Urban planners, architects and open space planners, developer representatives and experts on social sustainability worked together with residents in workshops to develop concepts on the topics of architecture and urban development, open and green space, social sustainability, young living, mobility, smart city and ecology.

The focus in Neu Leopoldau is on child- and youth-friendly spatial design and on diverse housing options for young people. In 2016, the IBA_Vienna commissioned the SORA Institute to conduct research on the topic of "Young Housing in Neu Leopoldau." This study showed already developed solution proposals for the target group of young people in housing. In the further process, the IBA_Vienna supported the individual actors in highlighting the special features of their respective projects and making them visible. Particular consideration was given to open space planning, adapted forms of housing, and spaces for movement specifically geared to children and young people.

Growing together
To ensure that the intergenerational neighborhood can develop from the very beginning, the district management of the Gebietsbetreuung Stadterneuerung accompanies the developments in Neu Leopoldau and the surrounding area. Community is not limited to the new building sites but includes all residents. The employees provide information about changes and current developments on site at an early stage, actively involve the residents, take up ideas and suggestions, network local actors and support them with professional know-how.

Living information
In order to make it easier for everyone to find their way around a changing part of the city, the district management of the Gebietsbetreuung Stadterneuerung developed a digital district map to provide up-to-date information and orientation for new arrivals in Neu Leopoldau and for residents in the adjacent neighborhood. With this "Living District Map," interested people can explore the district in the footsteps of four fictitious people. In this way, they learn interesting facts and exciting stories from the neighborhood and can pick up many tips for a good coexistence. The living district map also provides information about the locations of educational institutions, local supply options, leisure activities, and dates and on-site events of the district management of the Gebietsbetreuung Stadterneuerung.

Young mobility
The mobility concept also refers to the topic of "young living." A wide range of alternative means of transport, from good connections to the public transport network to additional mobility services within the residential area, are intended to meet particularly the needs and opportunities of young people.
