Urban living made easy

Julius-Tandler-Platz 3, 1090 Wien

FRANCIS: the project

Just a few steps out the door in the morning, and you're already at work. An escalator takes you from your office to the plaza with its enticing and colourful variety of lunchtime options. After work, you stop off at the in-house fitness centre for a quick workout before grabbing tomorrow's breakfast or the ingredients for an evening cocktail on your balcony. Sounds good, right?

Wishes come true

A brand new district centre – the only one of its kind – is taking shape on the 2.4 hectare site above Vienna's Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof railway station: the Althan Quartier. The site will be home to offices, co-working spaces, restaurants, shops, businesses, service providers, high-end flats, a hotel and a parking garage. This sustainable mix covering around 130,000 m2 of gross floor space will enable contemporary urban living while keeping the usual back and forth to a minimum. That saves time and energy – and creates exceptional liveability.

The heart of the Althan Quartier is the FRANCIS building complex, which houses the Franz-Josefs-Bahnhof railway station on its ground floor. Two new buildings are being built just to the east of FRANCIS on Nordbergstrasse: JOSEPH and SOPHIE – modern, urban living space in one of Vienna's prime locations. The fourth Althan Quartier building is on Althanstrasse and will house a hotel and parking garage.  

Three of the four separate Althan Quartier buildings will be connected via a plaza – a shared space and a place where people can relax. The plaza will lead to offices, the JOSEPH residential building, and the neighbouring hotel, while a passage will connect to the garage. The plaza will also be accessible from outside, with walkways leading to Althanstrasse and Nordbergstrasse.
