A PIECE OF THE CITY IS REDESIGNED

6B47 Real Estate Investors

27.9.–6.10.2019

Whoever sets foot in the VIENNA DESIGN WEEK’s Festival Headquar­ters will be in the middle of the future Althan Quartier. In the coming years, 6B47 Real Estate Investors – the festival’s location partner this year – will transform Karl Schwanzer’s glass construction above the Franz­ Josefs-­Bahnhof train station into the newest city center. In the heart of Vienna’s 9th district, not only will a piece of real estate will be reinterpreted, part of the city will be designed! At a central intersection of urban pathways, squares, and life­ lines, the location’s strengths will be revealed and developed. The Althan Quartier, occupying an important place in the city’s fabric, is more than a simple concentration with a variety of functions: It also provides space for an eclectic variety of social life and urban biodiversity.
