Groundbreaking ceremony for ANTON residential project

Groundbreaking ceremony ANTON

The ANTON groundbreaking ceremony marks the addition of another attractive residential project to Neu Marx – a vibrant development zone in the immediate vicinity of the city centre and a hotspot for the creative, media, biotechnology and start-up industries.

The project on Anton-Kuh-Weg was developed by Raiffeisen Property International GmbH (RPHI) and will include a total of 9 studios and 73 two to five-room apartments, all of which will stand out thanks to their distinctive open-plan design, floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies with a depth of up to 2.45 metres.

The project's sustainability features are equally outstanding: In March 2017, ANTON was the first residential project in Austria to receive the ÖGNI/DGNB platinum sustainability pre-certification – the highest possible rating.

“The platinum pre-certificate illustrates our high standards for residential projects: attractive architecture, prime locations and a future-oriented approach to construction that not only reduces construction costs but also facilitates the conservation of resources, thereby enabling cost-efficient operation for several generations”, stated architect DI Barbara Schmittner, project lead at RPHI.

The choice of location also plays a key role in the conception of the overall project. “Due to its industrial past and historical centre, Neu Marx offers a fascinating mixture. This location will continue to attract companies from the fields of research and technology as well as the creative scene. The attractive, high-quality housing created by the ANTON project perfectly complements the location”, said Dr. Karl-Maria Pfeffer, CEO at RPHI.

In future, over 15,000 people will live and work at this location, which will be further enriched by the addition of a new biology university in 2021. By then, the inhabitants of ANTON will have already moved in: The project is scheduled to be completed in late 2018.
