Housing + Jobs

What sets Seestadt apart from other urban development projects is its multifaceted mixed-use planning concept. This functional mix accommodates all generations and a multiplicity of lifestyles – and is thus a key business factor.

Seestadt is bringing manufacturing back into the city and ensures an optimum combination of housing and workplaces. Seestadt is a business hub with superlative quality of life – for major tech corporations and innovative OPCs alike.

Flexibility + Equal Opportunities

The growing diversity of lifestyles is a key challenge of modern urban development. Buildings designed for a single, pre-defined use – such as pure residential or office blocks – no longer meet contemporary needs.

Seestadt thus places the focus on multifunctional architecture designed for open-ended use, which suits an array of different life phases. Self-organised community housing initiatives enable work to be combined with family and community life, thus fostering equal opportunities for people of different genders and generations.

Local Amenities + Social Infrastructure

A lively mix of housing, workspace, local services and amenities, leisure and education facilities is the basis for a vibrant city-within-a-city. Extra-high ground-floor zones with a mandatory minimum ceiling height of four metres provide spacious premises for shops, cafés, restaurants and other meeting places that open onto the squares and thoroughfares of Seestadt.

The housing generates footfall for the local businesses, while jobs create purchasing power for the shopping facilities.  Attractive local shops, services, cafés and restaurants, coupled with social infrastructure including a school campus, nurseries and a health centre make for satisfied residents and employees.

Austria's 1st managed shopping parade

Seestadt's local shopping facilities were in place right from the outset – with its unique shopping parade concept the city of short distances leaves nothing to chance when it comes to local amenities.

Retail + Rental Yields

aspern Seestadt Einkaufsstraßen GmbH – a joint venture by retail experts SES Spar European Shopping Centers and Wien 3420 AG – ensures that all major sectors are represented and that the retail mix on offer is as attractive as the rental yields for the developers, who in return create appealing ground-floor zones.
The concept also allows for Seestadt's organic future growth, so retail partners have the certainty that floor space will be adjusted in line with demand.
