Tips in the Grätzel

Helmut-Zilk-Park

The approximately seven-hectare park in the Sonnwendviertel is a popular meeting place and offers a variety of uses.

Sonnwendgarten

Community gardening is fun and builds strong neighborhood networks. The garden of approx. 800 m² is located in the second section of the Helmut-Zilk-Park.

There’s something going on in the Sonnwendviertel!

For those interested in art and culture, the Sonnwendviertel has a particularly colorful offer. The restaurants and pubs in the district invite visitors, small studios can be discovered and there is always an opportunity to participate in events!

Urban building blocks for the neighborhood

>> The basic idea was that by having a good mix of properties sold without conditions and those that had to meet certain criteria, you could create a livable and urban district overall. <<

Robert Temel, Spokesman of the Building Culture Policy Platform


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.

The development of the second part, Sonnwendviertel Ost between the park and the railroad line, broke new ground in many respects. This began with the planning processes. The original master plan from 2004, which envisaged office and commercial space along the railroad line, was completely revised in 2012. A panel of experts selected a planning team that analyzed the qualities, shortcomings and opportunities of the master plan. In several workshops, a new, cooperatively developed master plan was agreed upon, involving several planners, the city and ÖBB as land owner. The result was an unusually small plot structure for Vienna, with the car-free Bloch-Bauer Promenade in the center as an urban living room.

Mixed houses for the neighborhood
These plots were allocated in different procedures, which were mixed within the neighborhood in order to create urban diversity and urban quality. Many building plots in striking locations were reserved for building groups and for the new type of neighborhood houses. These neighborhood houses should offer more than just housing and exert a charisma with high architectural quality. Thus, they do not only stand for themselves, but create offers for the quarter, their neighborhood, for the district. The building groups, which are constituted in various legal forms, also perform committed development work in the creation of neighborhoods from the very beginning, both with cultural offerings and events and through civic engagement.

The mixture of uses was recognized here early on as an essential ingredient of an urban neighborhood. As early as the cooperative process, it was a key objective not to design the Sonnwendviertel Ost as a purely residential area. The ground floor zones played a key role here. In the meantime, not only cafés, supermarkets, pharmacies and medical practices are located here, but also many businesses that contribute significantly to the diversity of the neighborhood. Small commercial units have been made available as micro-locations with low rents, especially for start-ups, small businesses, one-person businesses and SMEs. Many offices from the creative scene have settled, and the Atelierhaus C.21 has received much attention with its radically new and open space.

Soft mobility
Underground garages were not permitted for most of the buildings; instead, it was stipulated that the mandatory parking spaces be accommodated in collective garages. Two elevated garages facing the railroad line ensure short distances and at the same time act as a noise barrier to the railroad traffic. Good connections for pedestrians and cyclists were ensured in this centrally located neighborhood, and a sharing service for electric cars is also available. The Vienna Mobility Fund makes a special contribution: The city supports projects that promote sustainable mobility in the Sonnwendviertel Ost. In 2020, these included projects such as cargo bikes, trolley boys, the Lenkerbande workshop and various sharing models.

The neighborhood at a glance

Atelierhaus C21

 
The Atelierhaus dissolves the usual spatial boundaries between working and living and offers space as a neutral framework, open for different living structures and uses that the users can design and determine themselves.

Bikes and Rails

 
The housing project Bikes and Rails is part of the "habiTAT Mietshäuser Syndikat", a network of self-organised and solidarity-based housing projects with the aim of buying houses off the market and securing them as self-managed free spaces for all time.

CAPE 10

 
CAPE 10 is an innovative health and social center where people can learn with and from each other. CAPE 10 stands for a new interpretation of social responsi-bility and for the effort to create a more equal opportunity society.

Das Haus am Park

 
The 2-story base zone with its shimmering facade of profiled glass accommodates offices and a dance studio for children. The forecourt incorporates the surroundings and brings revitalization and social integration. The apartments are above the base zone.

GeQ - Das Gesundheits.Quartier

 
Built according to ecological principles, of clear structure, bright atmosphere and high-quality furnishings: this is what the Gesundheits.Quartier stands for as a place of sustainable living in the Sonnwendviertel East.

Gleis 21

 
The project is based on the principles of "solidary living," "clever enjoyment" and "medial design." In cooperation with institutions, artists and creative spirits, cultural, medial and social life of the neighborhood is shaped.

Grüner Markt

 
The "Green Market" combines living, working and producing. Of the total area of the building, about 30% is available for commercial use.

Grätzelmixer

 
In the combination of condominium ownership and residents' association, the advantages of the building group model become accessible to a wider circle of users.

Loft Living

 
"Loft Living" is a socially sustainable, ecological building group project for combining living with creative work. The apartments can be easily adapted to the individual needs of the residents.

MIO

 
MIO offers a wide range of possibilities - whether living, working or both in combination: 42 rental apartments as well as condominiums and various commercial and office spaces on two floors.

MUSIC BOX

 
The MUSIC BOX offers the opportunity to live, work, rehearse, dwell, and network under one roof.

Open up!

 
Open up! is a proposal for a new Viennese apartment building - a flexible, hybrid, de-specialized building. It is played around the clock between open space, living space, business and work spaces and is integrated into the surroundings.

Stadtelefant

 
The Stadtelefant is a neighborhood house and architecture cluster where people work, discuss and share knowledge, with a public pub and a space for events.

WOGEN Quartiershaus

 
The cooperative "WoGen Wohnprojekte-Genossenschaft" is the first developer in Austria to exclusively realize housing projects with and for people who want to live in community.
