“The large-scale project at Handelskai will not only see the construction of a state-of-the-art residential complex, but generous commercial and office units as well. As a low-energy building, the project meets stringent sustainability criteria and offers high levels of comfort. Furthermore, it makes another important contribution to creating quality housing in Vienna – Austria’s most populous city,” said Karl-Heinz Strauss, CEO of PORR. Modern living in an urban environment combined with optimum comfort and sustainable solutions – that is what is required of construction projects today. PORR’s experience and expertise in building construction are on display again and the company will help shape the cityscape once more.

Residential units ranging from 31 m2 to 83 m2, clever layouts, and high-quality fittings and fixtures promise outstanding comfort. Around 3,200 m² of commercial space will be offered, alongside 2,100 m² of office space. The project’s location stands out for its excellent transport links as well as extensive leisure options thanks to its direct proximity to the adjacent relaxation area on the banks of the Danube. Moreover, the project has a range of special features such as urban gardening zones and generous communal spaces.

“Building high-quality housing in densely populated, urban areas is part of our core business. This large-scale project at Handelskai stands out for its appeal and importance for Vienna as an economic location. In the course of our call for tender, we chose PORR as our general contractor.
