Multiple award-winning: six BUWOG projects win in seven categories of the European Property Award


This year's European Property Awards were presented online on 2 December 2021. BUWOG Group GmbH was especially compelling this year, taking home no fewer than seven awards – including five 5-Star awards. Awards were presented for the projects Inside XIX, RIVUS Vivere, RIVUS Schule, HELIO TOWER, the SUNSET Penthouse in MARINA TOWER and the new BUWOG Customer and Administrative Centre.

As in the previous year, the 2021 European Property Awards were held exclusively online for Covid 19-related reasons and not at a festive gala evening in London. There was nevertheless reason to celebrate, as the overview of awards for BUWOG shows:

  • Inside XIX in the category Residential Renovation/Redevelopment for Austria
  • Inside XIX in the category Development Marketing for Austria
  • RIVUS Vivere in the category Residential Development for Austria
  • RIVUS School in the category Public Service Development for Austria
  • HELIO TOWER in the category Residential High-rise Development for Austria
  • MARINA TOWER: SUNSET Penthouse in the category Apartment/Condominium for Austria
  • BUWOG Customer and Administrative Centre in the category Office Development for Austria

The projects Inside XIX (Development Marketing), RIVUS School, HELIO TOWER, MARINA TOWER SUNSET Penthouse and the Customer and Administrative Centre also won the 5-Star Award, thus qualifying for entry in the International Property Awards.


The submissions were judged by an international jury, including real estate experts, architects and journalists. The projects were evaluated based on fixtures and fittings, location, architecture, sustainability and innovation, and the accompanying marketing.


“The requirements for submissions to the European Property Award grow from year to year, and it makes me incredibly proud that our various projects are still being increasingly recognised with awards in a wide range of categories. With these multiple awards, we demonstrate that as an Austrian property developer we are also able to keep up with or even exceed international standards,” says Andreas Holler, managing director of BUWOG Group GmbH.


Inside XIX

The project “Inside XIX” on Gatterburggasse in the 19th district received two awards: one in the category “Residential Renovation/Redevelopment Austria” and one the 5-Star Award in the category Development Marketing for Austria. The project’s distinctive feature: Döbling's former district office is being revitalised and a new building is being added. Thus by autumn of 2022, a marvellous symbiosis of tradition and modernity will be created, comprising a total of 116 new residential units – 15 in the existing building and 101 in the new building. Atelier Heiss is responsible for the architecture.

RIVUS School

At the centre of the major “RIVUS” project, a multifunctional commercial building with a local supplier, a primary school with 17 classes and an associated rooftop sports ground was completed and opened in summer 2020. The multifunctional building concept combining local supply, education and sports saves on space and creates the necessary infrastructure for the residents of the surrounding area. The project won the 5-Star Award in the category Public Service Development for Austria.


HELIO TOWER, one of BUWOG's largest projects under construction at present, won the 5-Star Award in the category Residential High-Rise Development for Austria. The residential tower with 34 floors above ground recently reached its full height of 110 metres and, once completed at the end of 2022, will comprise 401 apartments, 228 of them privately financed condominiums and 173 rental apartments under the Vienna Housing Initiative.

On Handelskai along the banks of the Danube, MARINA TOWER, a joint project of BUWOG and IES Immobilien, has already reached its full height. After its completion by spring of 2022, it will offer high-quality living in all 511 privately financed condominiums. In addition to the numerous services that will be available to residents, a special highlight will be the six penthouse apartments on the residential tower’s top floors. One of them, the SUNSET Penthouse, was submitted to the European Property Award and won the 5-Star Award in the category Apartment/Condominium for Austria. The SUNSET Penthouse is for those who love the west side. The golden light of the setting sun creates a relaxed atmosphere in which the city centre lies at the feet of the future owners. The corner floor plan facing multiple directions provides space for four bedrooms and opens up magnificent vistas of Vienna's city panorama.
