Sale of flats at Vienna Central Station launches with BUWOG project "sky9"

• 85 privately financed freehold and investment flats
• Central location in emerging urban development area
• Completion planned for spring 2014


The first residential building project is coming on the market in the urban development area surrounding Vienna Central Station in Vienna's 10th district: BUWOG, a wholly-owned subsidiary of IMMOFINANZ Group, is the first residential building company to have begun marketing its sky9 project in Gombrichgasse 4. A total of 85 high-quality, privately financed freehold and investment flats will be built on the property, which is designed as a low-energy building. 82 units feature compact floor plans of between 48 sqm and 59 sqm; three others are between 83 sqm and 107 sqm. Each flat has a terrace, loggia, or a balcony. There are a total of 77 parking places for cars available at the facility. Completion is planned for spring 2014.

With BahnhofCity, an emerging new quarter of the city featuring excellent infrastructure is being built between the Wiedner Gürtel, Sonnwendgasse, Gudrunstraße and Arsenalgasse. The attractive residential facilities are enhanced by office buildings, an educational campus as well as spacious green areas including an eight-hectare park, and local shops. The transport connections are excellent: the metro stations Keplerplatz and Südtiroler Platz – Vienna Central Station are located nearby, as are numerous S-Bahn lines as well as several bus and tram lines. The Gürtel ring road and A23 can be reached quickly by car, and the network of bicycle paths is also well developed.

"The housing situation is unique here: on the one hand, you live in a pulsing new urban quarter, and on the other hand you're just a few minutes from the flair of the city centre", says BUWOG Managing Director Gerhard Schuster. "This will make the region around the new Vienna Central Station one of the most coveted residential locations in Vienna in the coming years, for owner-occupiers as well as for investors interested in investment flats".
