WHAT STAGE HAS THE MARINA TOWER PROJECT CURRENTLY REACHED? IT HAS BEEN AGES SINCE WE HEARD ANYTHING AND THE CONSTRUCTION WORK WAS ORIGINALLY MEANT TO START IN OCTOBER.
Large-scale projects simply take time. All of the preparatory work is now complete, planning permission has been issued by MA 37 and we will start building the Marina Tower in winter. The construction time will be 2.5 years, but we recommend that you get in touch with us now about your new apartment.
AND WHEN WILL WE RECEIVE FURTHER INFORMATION AND MORE DETAILS?
Right now. The Marina Tower will be an exemplary building for Vienna. In terms of its location, facilities, surroundings and standard of living. In other words, everything it has to offer. We are building over 500 state-of-the-art rental and owner-occupied apartments. The tower will boast a fitness and spa area, its own nursery, lots of green spaces with large leisure and relaxation areas, plenty of restaurant and retail areas, excellent public transport links, an ingenious car-sharing system, charging stations for electric cars and e-bikes, underground parking spaces inside the tower, and much more. On top of all that, just picture the fantastic view of Vienna, overlooking the Danube.
WHAT SETS THE MARINA TOWER APART FROM OTHER RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS?
The location is unique. You will be living practically in the centre of Vienna, surrounded by greenery and right by the water. The Marina Tower itself is unique and unmistakeable. The ‘Marina Deck’, a kind of large, wide bridge stretching to the Handelskai, will directly connect the Marina Tower to the right bank of the Danube. There will be a green promenade and a special square with cafés, restaurants and shops. The ‘Marina Deck’ will also take you straight to the Vienna Marina. Who else can offer all that?
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO SCRAP THE OFFICE TOWER PROJECT AND BUILD A RESIDENTIAL TOWER INSTEAD?
No other city in the world offers such a high standard of living as Vienna. The city is growing at an extremely fast rate and will continue to do so over the coming years. Vienna urgently needs new, high-quality homes. Following intensive discussions with political decision-makers, we took the joint decision to use this perfect location to construct an exemplary residential building with over 500 rental and owner-occupied apartments instead of an office tower. This will also provide a huge boost to urban development in the Leopoldstadt district along the Danube. Instead of anonymous office towers, the buildings being constructed are fantastic apartments embedded in a green environment with a high standard of living. The people living in the Marina Tower will therefore be able to enjoy the abundance of services offered in the immediate area.
