Topping-out for BUWOG's "Baranygasse" project

  • 126 rental apartments for Donaustadt, distributed across seven components
  • Climate-neutral construction: one building is constructed entirely of wood
  • Completion in summer 2021

On 24 September 2020, BUWOG celebrated the topping-out for the "Baranygasse" project in Vienna's 22nd district. Due to the corona safety measures, the event took place in the scope of a small gathering. In addition to representatives of BUWOG, contacts from UBM and general contractor PORR were also in attendance and called attention to the marvellous, constructive cooperation of all partners to the project. "We are proud that as a result of our competent partners, the building's shell could be completed on schedule, even in these challenging times," Andreas Holler, managing director of BUWOG GmbH, was pleased to say. "Future residents can expect apartments featuring state-of-the-art design and quality fixtures and fittings as well as a variety of possibilities for living on the outskirts of the city here in the aspiring new district of Donaustadt."

Acquired by UBM Development AG, the project comprises 126 rental apartments distributed across seven components. The building's own underground car park provides 126 parking spaces for cars and six motorbikes as well as numerous bicycle stands.

Modern residential space between city and countryside

The design by the architectural firms Duda, Testor. Architektur ZT GmbH (entrance number 1, 2 and 4-9) and MAGK architektur aichholzer | klein ZT OG (entrance 3) will provide a residential environment in a natural setting featuring numerous green recreational areas in the immediate vicinity. The Alte Donau and Donauinsel are just as easy to access as the Lobau and Mühlwasser. Due to convenient connections with the U2 underground and numerous bus lines, the journey to the city centre takes just half an hour.

The apartments will all have private open areas, and the complex will also include a youth play/fitness room and common room featuring a kitchenette, as well as a playground for children and young people.

Climate-neutral construction with wood

A special feature of the complex is a component which is constructed entirely of wood and is climate-neutral. The timber construction method, which reduces the CO2 footprint to nearly zero, can thus be optimally and directly compared with the neighbouring components. "On Baranygasse, we are not only creating highly attractive residential space in a green setting that combines the advantages of city and country life; together with UBM, we are also setting important trends for sustainable construction in the future. Placing solid and timber construction next to one another allows us to generate important insights," a delighted Andreas Holler says. Even at this early stage, it is already clear that timber construction is on a par with solid construction when it comes to cost efficiency and construction time.

The project is scheduled for completion in mid-2021.
