Planning Values and Quality

Intelligent, dialogue-based planning

aspern Seestadt challenges investors, building contractors, project developers, architects and engineers to think outside the box and come up with new ideas and ways of doing things. aspern Seestadt offers an opportunity to implement projects that would never be possible on a city-centre infill site.

Public spaces, buildings, roads, thoroughfares and other infrastructure will be developed in a process of dialogue with partners, users and neighbouring communities as part of an intelligent networked system in line with "smart city" standards. Intelligent planning for smart cities makes life simpler and more efficient.

aspern Seestadt must fulfil the requirements of 21st-century lifestyles as well as meeting the City of Vienna's ambitious energy efficiency and climate protection goals. It is sustainable in terms of its building design and open space planning as well as in its transport and energy supply concepts. The focus is always on people, from start to finish.

The development agency Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG is the quality manager for aspern Seestadt. Its quality policy defines a set of shared values for high-quality development, the implementation of which is monitored and supported by the aspern Advisory Board. All plots are awarded in accordance with a transparent, standardised quality assurance process.
