10/2/19
  • Sustainability and urban gardening the focus of the new building
  • 191 rental apartments, 160 of them part of the Vienna Housing Initiative
  • Planned completion in mid-2020

The topping out for the sustainable flagship project "ERnteLAA" took place at Meischlgasse 15 on 12 September 2019. BUWOG is developing a total of 191 new residential units in the 23rd district of Vienna – 31 privately financed rental apartments and 160 rental apartments in the scope of the Vienna Housing Initiative. Valerija Karsai, managing director of BUWOG Group GmbH, expressed her thanks to the 120 guests in the presence of Wolfgang Ermischer (district representative for Liesing), the team of M&S Architects and numerous other project partners. "Vienna needs housing which, in addition to the basic need of ''a place to live", also fulfils aspects such as affordability, community and sustainability. With this in mind, we are very proud of our 'ERnteLAA' project, which combines all of these components under one roof. Our project partners have done a marvellous job here and with considerable competence ensured that the shell could be completed on schedule", says Karsai.

Sustainable living in the midst of the city

The name "ERnteLAA" says it all: an essential component of the project are the numerous urban gardening areas in the form of community gardens and raised beds that will be available to future residents. The project succeeds with its overall ecological concept, which also includes the use of sustainable energies, charging stations for future residents and the greening of façades. In November 2016 already the project was presented with the GBB Award, which focuses especially on sustainability. After completion, spacious open areas will not only provide playgrounds for children and young people, but also seating areas for gathering, relaxing and spending time. With its proximity to the U6 station "Erlaaer Straße", the project has an ideal public transport connection. There will be an underground car park for drivers. On the ground floor there will also be a kindergarten, a local supplier and a pharmacy.
