The new AUSTRIA CAMPUS in Vienna’s second district covers an area larger than that of the Pentagon in Washington, and its capacity is such that it could provide jobs for a number of small towns.
UniCredit Bank Austria’s new headquarters on the AUSTRIA CAMPUS are the location for UniCredit Bank Austria, UniCredit’s Vienna-based CEE units, and all UniCredit Group companies in Vienna. About 5,300 employees will experience an entirely new working environment there, in two buildings with about 60,000 square metres of office space.
UniCredit Bank Austria’s relocation to the new headquarters at the Austria Campus will result in the following savings:
- Electricity consumption: about minus 23 gwh
- Heat energy requirement: about minus 20 gwh
- The resulting reduction in CO2 emissions: about minus 7,000 tons
- Electricity savings of 23,351,776 kwh more or less correspond to the consumption of 7,784 two-person households. These 7,667 households could accommodate almost all current residents of Vienna’s first district (16,465 inhabitants).
- Savings of heat energy requirement (savings = 20,513,420 kwh) are equal to the heat energy required by 2,857 80 m2 apartments in modern buildings. This is more than double the current number of apartments in Vienna’s Karl-Marx-Hof complex (1,325 apartments).
- CO2 savings (about 5,500 tons) through lower electricity and heat energy requirements correspond to 27,760,000 km with a medium-sized diesel-powered car on a motorway. If one were to build a motorway to the moon, this would suffice for 46 trips from the Earth to the moon and back. 5,500 tons of CO2 moreover correspond to the greenhouse gas generated by the production of 417 tons of beef.
- Area: approx. 200,000 m2
- Office space: approx. 60,000 m2
- Buildings: 5, of which used by Bank Austria: two buildings, plus various infrastructure facilities in other buildings
In addition to the offices, the Campus includes the following facilities:
- a staff canteen a hotel
- a kindergarten a Bank Austria branch
- a medical centre a self-service branch
- a function room
- a hotel
- a Bank Austria branch
- a self-service branch
- and a unit which meets employees
New urban quarter on the site of Vienna’s old Northern Railway Station
The project is an affirmation of Vienna as both a business location and a residential city: a new urban quarter, scheduled for completion in 2025, is being developed on the site of the old Northern Railway Station. With an area of 85 hectares it will be only slightly smaller than Vienna Airport (100 hectares). The quarter will create a new, urban living space for 10,000 subsidised and privately financed apartments and 20,000 workplaces.
