3. Ciclovias

   

Compared to previous years this has been a strange and limited year for me geographically.

 

To begin with the immediately concrete, I’ve hardly gone outside in the past week and a half, thanks to an extended episode of my right foot being stiff and swollen from gout. This time it struck without warning or provocation, unlike the previous time earlier this year, which you can see foreshadowed on the map as a day of biking around exploring West Oakland and then to Berkeley. The next day I could barely walk, and I haven’t dared to ride a bike in months.

 

My daily routine has been dominated all year by getting between home and MacArthur or Rockridge BART stations and between Civic Center BART and the Mapbox office on 9th Street. There are also many short walks from 16th Street BART for the Friday morning ritual of geobreakfast, and some longer ones taking advantage of some extra time in the morning to walk between 16th Street and Castro or Church stations instead of going straight to work. Another couple of early mornings I went to Glen Park and Noe Valley just to count pedestrians.

 

The long straight lines in the Oakland Hills are GPS tracks from airplanes. The rules changed and now you can use a GPS receiver during takeoff and landing, but it’s still hard to get a good signal. The trips were to Boston, to speak at the OpenVis conference (and then from there to Maryland to visit Steph’s family), and to Minneapolis, to speak at Eyeo Festival. Not visible on the map are two trips to visit my parents in southern California.

 

Locally, I talked at the Macro City conference at the Brava Theater, at Swissnex on Montgomery, at the National Association of City Transportation Officials at SPUR, and to a cartography class at San Francisco State, gave lunch talks at SFMTA and Gehl Architects, and was in SPUR’s Urban Cartography exhibit.

 

One Saturday I took the F Market around the Embarcadero to go to the library book sale at Fort Mason and came away with seven bound volumes of the Armed Forces Song Folio, monthly compilations of popular sheet music issued by the military in the 1940s and 50s. By systematically working through them, I’ve finally become a competent “fake book” pianist, able to play songs I’ve never heard before from the written melody and chords, although playing full standard piano arrangements is still beyond me.

 

I think the only new infrastructure reflected here is trying out BART’s Oakland Airport Connector on its opening day.

Roddy Smith, chief executive of the Essential Edinburgh group said: “We’re fully supportive of the work Ironside Farrar have done, their initial plans are excellent and the reaction from the businesses has been very positive so far. They are essentially looking at having the pavements further out into the street, where there would be one lane of traffic going in each direction. The idea is that if the streets are wider, people will hang about for longer."

 

Errm... can the street actually be made wider?

Ironside Farrar were appointed to turn the information gathered at a public consultation into design principles. The public were invited to share their views to help shape the future of George Street at the heart of Edinburgh's New Town; a streetscape which is widely recognised as an architectural gem.

 

The open day, on Friday 2nd October, gave people a 'final chance' to meet designers, landscape architects, planners and civil engineers working on a long-term vision for George Street.

Alas the information on the exhibition boards displayed was not available anywhere online, there were no leaflets to take away and apparently no online consultation at this stage. You had to go along in person on the day at the Assembly Rooms. Feedback was collected on sticky notes and using a questionnaire. (Note that according to the information displayed on the boards this event was stage two of the consultation process following the end of the ETRO. At stage one 81 questionnaires were returned and 141 further comments were received. Not really much feedback for a city of nearly half-a-million people. It seems this event was held mid August 2015 - during the festival.)

 

Background: A one-year trial came to an end at the start of September 2015 and has been used to test the impacts on the street and surrounding area when there is more space for pedestrians, cyclists and events, and less space for traffic. The trial used an “Experimental” Traffic Regulation Order (ETRO) as a place making and design measure. At the end of a trial using an ETRO the street has to be returned to its previous layout before the long-term plan is put to the public.

The Aspern Urban Lakeside (officially also Aspern Urban Lakeside, project name: Aspern - Vienna's Urban Lakeside) is a part of town under construction in the 22nd district of Vienna Danube city and one of the largest urban development projects in Europe of the 2010s. Over a period of around 20 years a new district should arise, in which over 20,000 people are supposed to work and to live. The first of three development stages focuses until around 2017 to the south of the part of the city.

Location

Aspern Urban Lakeside with lake, 2012

The planned seaside town is located about 7 kilometers east of the city center, on the other bank of the Danube, already on the verge of March field (gravel and stone plain in Lower Austria bordering Vienna).

The area is bounded as follows:

In the north of the Marchegger Eastern Railway, forming since 1870 the (currently operated hourly) connection between Vienna and Bratislava and long has been used by the legendary Orient Express. The here layed out traffic station Vienna Aspern Nord offers since October 2013 U-Bahn (U2) underground traffic to the center of Vienna and from 2017 S-Bahn ÖBB (line S80) suburban traffic to Vienna's main train station as well as regional trains.

To the east beyond the Josefine Hawelka pathway or the Cassinonestraße adjoin settlements of the since 1938 belonging to Vienna outskirts village of Essling.

In the south adjoins to the site an extensive factory premises of General Motors Austria, which lies at the Groß-Enzersdorfer Road (bus number 26A), connecting Aspern and Essling.

In the West adjoins beyond the Johann Kutschera alley the belonging to Aspern suburban settlement to the area.

Positions of neighboring districts:

Hirschstetten, Breitenlee, Lackenjöchl

Neuessling

Outskirts settlement, neighboring communities, Essling, Aspern

History

The area northeast of the historic village of Aspern in March field was named after a man-made lake in the center of the development area.

On the former airfield Aspern, Vienna's airport during the interwar period, by the year 2028 around 240 hectares should be developed. This corresponds to the area of 7th and 8th district of Vienna. Planned are around 10,500 homes for 20,000 people and business premises for 15,000 office jobs as well as 5,000 jobs in industry, science, research and education.

For the development and utilization responsible is the Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG, a real estate development company which in December 2004 as a subsidiary company of the Vienna Business Agency, a fund of the City of Vienna (73.6%) and the (Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft) Federal Property Association (26.4%) was established. The planning is done in consultation with the relevant municipal departments of the city administration and the Wiener Linien, the public transport company of the city of Vienna.

Urban Planning

The urban concept of the maritime city is focused on the mixing of functions - there should be no purely residential use or commercial use. In this way, a dormitory town should be avoided and during the day non-stop revival obtained. The master plan for the seaside town was created by Swedish architect John Tovatt and adopted unanimously by the Vienna City Council on 25 May 2007. Essential contents are the functional arrangement of uses and the spatial configuration of both small and large urban gestures to an urban master plan.

Public space

The geographic center of the seaside town will form a 5-acre lake, which already largely exists, in a total of 9 hectare park. The lake is fed from groundwater. The public space - thus streets, squares and parks - occupies 50 percent of the total area of urban development.

In order to make the public space for the people who will live and work in the seaside town attractive, the Danish open space planners Gehl Architects by the Wien 3420 AG and the Municipal Department 19 (architecture) with the creation of a planning manual for public space (a "score of the public space") were commissioned. The planning manual is based on the idea that public life is a precious commodity that needs to focus it. Therefore Gehl Architects particularly important axes have worked out in the seaside town. The Circular road as a major route that has received the name Sun alley, the Red chord (shopping street, culture), the Blue string (sea park and promenade) and the Green string (green spaces, recreational areas). By 2015, three parks are built, the central Marine park, the Yella-Hertzka park and Hannah Arendt park, along with 8 hectares (May 26 2014 ground-breaking ceremony).

Development phases

The construction of the seaside town of Aspern is to take place until 2028 in three stages:

Stage 1 (2009-2017): The development company Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG builds the green spaces and the technical infrastructure (roads, sewage, etc.) and thus provides the impetus for the development of the maritime city. In the first large-scale expansion in the southwestern part of the maritime city arises a mixed quarter with approximately 2,600 residential units, offices, business and service companies as well as research and development facilities. The large volume is to ensure local supply and the desired mix of uses from the start. In October 2013, the metro stations Aspern North at the northern edge of the area and Seaside town as terminus of line U2 in the south have been opened. In this stage also falls the establishment of a R & D Park (research and development). As first impulse project there emerges an Innovation Quarter (Technology Centre), for which a realization competition was launched. With the IQ aspern by 2012 a first settlement core was created.

Stage 2 (2017-2022): The Station Aspern North and the connection through a powerful city street to the A 23 motorway and the branch S 1 are completed. Other residential and mixed districts and the train station and office quarters arise.

Stage 3 (from 2022): To the train station, the shopping street and the subway route adjacent areas are further compressed, the mix of uses is further improved.

Some of the then 42 tower swivel cranes and a concrete pump have been fitted with differently colored lights, which to specially composed orchestral music shone, 15 cranes were occupied by crane operators, who approriate for the music turned the booms.

The planning manual is based on the idea that public life is a precious commodity that needs to focus it. Therefore Gehl Architects particularly important axes have worked out in the seaside town. The Circular road as a major route that has received the name Sun alley, the Red chord (shopping street, culture), the Blue string (sea park and promenade) and the Green string (green spaces, recreational areas). By 2015, three parks are built, the central Marine park, the Yella-Hertzka park and Hannah Arendt park, along with 8 hectares (May 26 2014 ground-breaking ceremony).

Development phases

The construction of the seaside town of Aspern is to take place until 2028 in three stages:

Stage 1 (2009-2017): The development company Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG builds the green spaces and the technical infrastructure (roads, sewage, etc.) and thus provides the impetus for the development of the maritime city. In the first large-scale expansion in the southwestern part of the maritime city arises a mixed quarter with approximately 2,600 residential units, offices, business and service companies as well as research and development facilities. The large volume is to ensure local supply and the desired mix of uses from the start. In October 2013, the metro stations Aspern North at the northern edge of the area and Seaside town as terminus of line U2 in the south have been opened. In this stage also falls the establishment of a R & D Park (research and development). As first impulse project there emerges an Innovation Quarter (Technology Centre), for which a realization competition was launched. With the IQ aspern by 2012 a first settlement core was created.

Stage 2 (2017-2022): The Station Aspern North and the connection through a powerful city street to the A 23 motorway and the branch S 1 are completed. Other residential and mixed districts and the train station and office quarters arise.

Stage 3 (from 2022): To the train station, the shopping street and the subway route adjacent areas are further compressed, the mix of uses is further improved.

The Aspern Urban Lakeside (officially also Aspern Urban Lakeside, project name: Aspern - Vienna's Urban Lakeside) is a part of town under construction in the 22nd district of Vienna Danube city and one of the largest urban development projects in Europe of the 2010s. Over a period of around 20 years a new district should arise, in which over 20,000 people are supposed to work and to live. The first of three development stages focuses until around 2017 to the south of the part of the city.

Location

Aspern Urban Lakeside with lake, 2012

The planned seaside town is located about 7 kilometers east of the city center, on the other bank of the Danube, already on the verge of March field (gravel and stone plain in Lower Austria bordering Vienna).

The area is bounded as follows:

In the north of the Marchegger Eastern Railway, forming since 1870 the (currently operated hourly) connection between Vienna and Bratislava and long has been used by the legendary Orient Express. The here layed out traffic station Vienna Aspern Nord offers since October 2013 U-Bahn (U2) underground traffic to the center of Vienna and from 2017 S-Bahn ÖBB (line S80) suburban traffic to Vienna's main train station as well as regional trains.

To the east beyond the Josefine Hawelka pathway or the Cassinonestraße adjoin settlements of the since 1938 belonging to Vienna outskirts village of Essling.

In the south adjoins to the site an extensive factory premises of General Motors Austria, which lies at the Groß-Enzersdorfer Road (bus number 26A), connecting Aspern and Essling.

In the West adjoins beyond the Johann Kutschera alley the belonging to Aspern suburban settlement to the area.

Positions of neighboring districts:

Hirschstetten, Breitenlee, Lackenjöchl

Neuessling

Outskirts settlement, neighboring communities, Essling, Aspern

History

The area northeast of the historic village of Aspern in March field was named after a man-made lake in the center of the development area.

On the former airfield Aspern, Vienna's airport during the interwar period, by the year 2028 around 240 hectares should be developed. This corresponds to the area of 7th and 8th district of Vienna. Planned are around 10,500 homes for 20,000 people and business premises for 15,000 office jobs as well as 5,000 jobs in industry, science, research and education.

For the development and utilization responsible is the Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG, a real estate development company which in December 2004 as a subsidiary company of the Vienna Business Agency, a fund of the City of Vienna (73.6%) and the (Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft) Federal Property Association (26.4%) was established. The planning is done in consultation with the relevant municipal departments of the city administration and the Wiener Linien, the public transport company of the city of Vienna.

Urban Planning

The urban concept of the maritime city is focused on the mixing of functions - there should be no purely residential use or commercial use. In this way, a dormitory town should be avoided and during the day non-stop revival obtained. The master plan for the seaside town was created by Swedish architect John Tovatt and adopted unanimously by the Vienna City Council on 25 May 2007. Essential contents are the functional arrangement of uses and the spatial configuration of both small and large urban gestures to an urban master plan.

The Aspern Urban Lakeside (officially also Aspern Urban Lakeside, project name: Aspern - Vienna's Urban Lakeside) is a part of town under construction in the 22nd district of Vienna Danube city and one of the largest urban development projects in Europe of the 2010s. Over a period of around 20 years a new district should arise, in which over 20,000 people are supposed to work and to live. The first of three development stages focuses until around 2017 to the south of the part of the city.

Location

Aspern Urban Lakeside with lake, 2012

The planned seaside town is located about 7 kilometers east of the city center, on the other bank of the Danube, already on the verge of March field (gravel and stone plain in Lower Austria bordering Vienna).

The area is bounded as follows:

In the north of the Marchegger Eastern Railway, forming since 1870 the (currently operated hourly) connection between Vienna and Bratislava and long has been used by the legendary Orient Express. The here layed out traffic station Vienna Aspern Nord offers since October 2013 U-Bahn (U2) underground traffic to the center of Vienna and from 2017 S-Bahn ÖBB (line S80) suburban traffic to Vienna's main train station as well as regional trains.

To the east beyond the Josefine Hawelka pathway or the Cassinonestraße adjoin settlements of the since 1938 belonging to Vienna outskirts village of Essling.

In the south adjoins to the site an extensive factory premises of General Motors Austria, which lies at the Groß-Enzersdorfer Road (bus number 26A), connecting Aspern and Essling.

In the West adjoins beyond the Johann Kutschera alley the belonging to Aspern suburban settlement to the area.

Positions of neighboring districts:

Hirschstetten, Breitenlee, Lackenjöchl

Neuessling

Outskirts settlement, neighboring communities, Essling, Aspern

History

The area northeast of the historic village of Aspern in March field was named after a man-made lake in the center of the development area.

On the former airfield Aspern, Vienna's airport during the interwar period, by the year 2028 around 240 hectares should be developed. This corresponds to the area of 7th and 8th district of Vienna. Planned are around 10,500 homes for 20,000 people and business premises for 15,000 office jobs as well as 5,000 jobs in industry, science, research and education.

For the development and utilization responsible is the Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG, a real estate development company which in December 2004 as a subsidiary company of the Vienna Business Agency, a fund of the City of Vienna (73.6%) and the (Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft) Federal Property Association (26.4%) was established. The planning is done in consultation with the relevant municipal departments of the city administration and the Wiener Linien, the public transport company of the city of Vienna.

Urban Planning

The urban concept of the maritime city is focused on the mixing of functions - there should be no purely residential use or commercial use. In this way, a dormitory town should be avoided and during the day non-stop revival obtained. The master plan for the seaside town was created by Swedish architect John Tovatt and adopted unanimously by the Vienna City Council on 25 May 2007. Essential contents are the functional arrangement of uses and the spatial configuration of both small and large urban gestures to an urban master plan.

Public space

The geographic center of the seaside town will form a 5-acre lake, which already largely exists, in a total of 9 hectare park. The lake is fed from groundwater. The public space - thus streets, squares and parks - occupies 50 percent of the total area of urban development.

In order to make the public space for the people who will live and work in the seaside town attractive, the Danish open space planners Gehl Architects by the Wien 3420 AG and the Municipal Department 19 (architecture) with the creation of a planning manual for public space (a "score of the public space") were commissioned. The planning manual is based on the idea that public life is a precious commodity that needs to focus it. Therefore Gehl Architects particularly important axes have worked out in the seaside town. The Circular road as a major route that has received the name Sun alley, the Red chord (shopping street, culture), the Blue string (sea park and promenade) and the Green string (green spaces, recreational areas). By 2015, three parks are built, the central Marine park, the Yella-Hertzka park and Hannah Arendt park, along with 8 hectares (May 26 2014 ground-breaking ceremony).

Development phases

The construction of the seaside town of Aspern is to take place until 2028 in three stages:

Stage 1 (2009-2017): The development company Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG builds the green spaces and the technical infrastructure (roads, sewage, etc.) and thus provides the impetus for the development of the maritime city. In the first large-scale expansion in the southwestern part of the maritime city arises a mixed quarter with approximately 2,600 residential units, offices, business and service companies as well as research and development facilities. The large volume is to ensure local supply and the desired mix of uses from the start. In October 2013, the metro stations Aspern North at the northern edge of the area and Seaside town as terminus of line U2 in the south have been opened. In this stage also falls the establishment of a R & D Park (research and development). As first impulse project there emerges an Innovation Quarter (Technology Centre), for which a realization competition was launched. With the IQ aspern by 2012 a first settlement core was created.

Stage 2 (2017-2022): The Station Aspern North and the connection through a powerful city street to the A 23 motorway and the branch S 1 are completed. Other residential and mixed districts and the train station and office quarters arise.

Stage 3 (from 2022): To the train station, the shopping street and the subway route adjacent areas are further compressed, the mix of uses is further improved.

History

The area northeast of the historic village of Aspern in March field was named after a man-made lake in the center of the development area.

On the former airfield Aspern, Vienna's airport during the interwar period, by the year 2028 around 240 hectares should be developed. This corresponds to the area of 7th and 8th district of Vienna. Planned are around 10,500 homes for 20,000 people and business premises for 15,000 office jobs as well as 5,000 jobs in industry, science, research and education.

For the development and utilization responsible is the Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG, a real estate development company which in December 2004 as a subsidiary company of the Vienna Business Agency, a fund of the City of Vienna (73.6%) and the (Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft) Federal Property Association (26.4%) was established. The planning is done in consultation with the relevant municipal departments of the city administration and the Wiener Linien, the public transport company of the city of Vienna.

Urban Planning

The urban concept of the maritime city is focused on the mixing of functions - there should be no purely residential use or commercial use. In this way, a dormitory town should be avoided and during the day non-stop revival obtained. The master plan for the seaside town was created by Swedish architect John Tovatt and adopted unanimously by the Vienna City Council on 25 May 2007. Essential contents are the functional arrangement of uses and the spatial configuration of both small and large urban gestures to an urban master plan.

Public space

The geographic center of the seaside town will form a 5-acre lake, which already largely exists, in a total of 9 hectare park. The lake is fed from groundwater. The public space - thus streets, squares and parks - occupies 50 percent of the total area of urban development.

In order to make the public space for the people who will live and work in the seaside town attractive, the Danish open space planners Gehl Architects by the Wien 3420 AG and the Municipal Department 19 (architecture) with the creation of a planning manual for public space (a "score of the public space") were commissioned. The planning manual is based on the idea that public life is a precious commodity that needs to focus it. Therefore Gehl Architects particularly important axes have worked out in the seaside town. The Circular road as a major route that has received the name Sun alley, the Red chord (shopping street, culture), the Blue string (sea park and promenade) and the Green string (green spaces, recreational areas). By 2015, three parks are built, the central Marine park, the Yella-Hertzka park and Hannah Arendt park, along with 8 hectares (May 26 2014 ground-breaking ceremony).

Development phases

The construction of the seaside town of Aspern is to take place until 2028 in three stages:

Stage 1 (2009-2017): The development company Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG builds the green spaces and the technical infrastructure (roads, sewage, etc.) and thus provides the impetus for the development of the maritime city. In the first large-scale expansion in the southwestern part of the maritime city arises a mixed quarter with approximately 2,600 residential units, offices, business and service companies as well as research and development facilities. The large volume is to ensure local supply and the desired mix of uses from the start. In October 2013, the metro stations Aspern North at the northern edge of the area and Seaside town as terminus of line U2 in the south have been opened. In this stage also falls the establishment of a R & D Park (research and development). As first impulse project there emerges an Innovation Quarter (Technology Centre), for which a realization competition was launched. With the IQ aspern by 2012 a first settlement core was created.

Stage 2 (2017-2022): The Station Aspern North and the connection through a powerful city street to the A 23 motorway and the branch S 1 are completed. Other residential and mixed districts and the train station and office quarters arise.

Stage 3 (from 2022): To the train station, the shopping street and the subway route adjacent areas are further compressed, the mix of uses is further improved.

The Aspern Urban Lakeside (officially also Aspern Urban Lakeside, project name: Aspern - Vienna's Urban Lakeside) is a part of town under construction in the 22nd district of Vienna Danube city and one of the largest urban development projects in Europe of the 2010s. Over a period of around 20 years a new district should arise, in which over 20,000 people are supposed to work and to live. The first of three development stages focuses until around 2017 to the south of the part of the city.

Location

Aspern Urban Lakeside with lake, 2012

The planned seaside town is located about 7 kilometers east of the city center, on the other bank of the Danube, already on the verge of March field (gravel and stone plain in Lower Austria bordering Vienna).

The area is bounded as follows:

In the north of the Marchegger Eastern Railway, forming since 1870 the (currently operated hourly) connection between Vienna and Bratislava and long has been used by the legendary Orient Express. The here layed out traffic station Vienna Aspern Nord offers since October 2013 U-Bahn (U2) underground traffic to the center of Vienna and from 2017 S-Bahn ÖBB (line S80) suburban traffic to Vienna's main train station as well as regional trains.

To the east beyond the Josefine Hawelka pathway or the Cassinonestraße adjoin settlements of the since 1938 belonging to Vienna outskirts village of Essling.

This was a CRA consultant run affair, but fortunately the lead firm in the design and presentation was top-notch Danish firm Gehl Architects. Thumbs down to FIDM - sent us into a dark and unlit park to park our bikes. We chose the well-lit and well-observed sidewalk trees out front instead. FIDM forced us to "sign in" before letting our toddler enter the building to go pee (she peed her pants waiting you god damned animals, hope you're happy and everything was "secure").

 

The CRA probably thought this was a nice place to do this, and it would seem that way to people that spoke english and arrived by car. To me, it as both a horrible experience brightened only by the spirit of people in the meeting rom and the content of the presentation. Too bad none of it was in Spanish! That's alright, they'll get it better at the next meeting (we were promised).

The urban concept of the maritime city is focused on the mixing of functions - there should be no purely residential use or commercial use. In this way, a dormitory town should be avoided and during the day non-stop revival obtained. The master plan for the seaside town was created by Swedish architect John Tovatt and adopted unanimously by the Vienna City Council on 25 May 2007. Essential contents are the functional arrangement of uses and the spatial configuration of both small and large urban gestures to an urban master plan.

Public space

The geographic center of the seaside town will form a 5-acre lake, which already largely exists, in a total of 9 hectare park. The lake is fed from groundwater. The public space - thus streets, squares and parks - occupies 50 percent of the total area of urban development.

In order to make the public space for the people who will live and work in the seaside town attractive, the Danish open space planners Gehl Architects by the Wien 3420 AG and the Municipal Department 19 (architecture) with the creation of a planning manual for public space (a "score of the public space") were commissioned. The planning manual is based on the idea that public life is a precious commodity that needs to focus it. Therefore Gehl Architects particularly important axes have worked out in the seaside town. The Circular road as a major route that has received the name Sun alley, the Red chord (shopping street, culture), the Blue string (sea park and promenade) and the Green string (green spaces, recreational areas). By 2015, three parks are built, the central Marine park, the Yella-Hertzka park and Hannah Arendt park, along with 8 hectares (May 26 2014 ground-breaking ceremony).

Development phases

The construction of the seaside town of Aspern is to take place until 2028 in three stages:

Stage 1 (2009-2017): The development company Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG builds the green spaces and the technical infrastructure (roads, sewage, etc.) and thus provides the impetus for the development of the maritime city. In the first large-scale expansion in the southwestern part of the maritime city arises a mixed quarter with approximately 2,600 residential units, offices, business and service companies as well as research and development facilities. The large volume is to ensure local supply and the desired mix of uses from the start. In October 2013, the metro stations Aspern North at the northern edge of the area and Seaside town as terminus of line U2 in the south have been opened. In this stage also falls the establishment of a R & D Park (research and development). As first impulse project there emerges an Innovation Quarter (Technology Centre), for which a realization competition was launched. With the IQ aspern by 2012 a first settlement core was created.

Stage 2 (2017-2022): The Station Aspern North and the connection through a powerful city street to the A 23 motorway and the branch S 1 are completed. Other residential and mixed districts and the train station and office quarters arise.

Stage 3 (from 2022): To the train station, the shopping street and the subway route adjacent areas are further compressed, the mix of uses is further improved.

The Aspern Urban Lakeside (officially also Aspern Urban Lakeside, project name: Aspern - Vienna's Urban Lakeside) is a part of town under construction in the 22nd district of Vienna Danube city and one of the largest urban development projects in Europe of the 2010s. Over a period of around 20 years a new district should arise, in which over 20,000 people are supposed to work and to live. The first of three development stages focuses until around 2017 to the south of the part of the city.

Location

Aspern Urban Lakeside with lake, 2012

The planned seaside town is located about 7 kilometers east of the city center, on the other bank of the Danube, already on the verge of March field (gravel and stone plain in Lower Austria bordering Vienna).

The area is bounded as follows:

In the north of the Marchegger Eastern Railway, forming since 1870 the (currently operated hourly) connection between Vienna and Bratislava and long has been used by the legendary Orient Express. The here layed out traffic station Vienna Aspern Nord offers since October 2013 U-Bahn (U2) underground traffic to the center of Vienna and from 2017 S-Bahn ÖBB (line S80) suburban traffic to Vienna's main train station as well as regional trains.

To the east beyond the Josefine Hawelka pathway or the Cassinonestraße adjoin settlements of the since 1938 belonging to Vienna outskirts village of Essling.

In the south adjoins to the site an extensive factory premises of General Motors Austria, which lies at the Groß-Enzersdorfer Road (bus number 26A), connecting Aspern and Essling.

In the West adjoins beyond the Johann Kutschera alley the belonging to Aspern suburban settlement to the area.

Positions of neighboring districts:

Hirschstetten, Breitenlee, Lackenjöchl

Neuessling

Outskirts settlement, neighboring communities, Essling, Aspern

History

The area northeast of the historic village of Aspern in March field was named after a man-made lake in the center of the development area.

On the former airfield Aspern, Vienna's airport during the interwar period, by the year 2028 around 240 hectares should be developed. This corresponds to the area of 7th and 8th district of Vienna. Planned are around 10,500 homes for 20,000 people and business premises for 15,000 office jobs as well as 5,000 jobs in industry, science, research and education.

For the development and utilization responsible is the Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG, a real estate development company which in December 2004 as a subsidiary company of the Vienna Business Agency, a fund of the City of Vienna (73.6%) and the (Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft) Federal Property Association (26.4%) was established. The planning is done in consultation with the relevant municipal departments of the city administration and the Wiener Linien, the public transport company of the city of Vienna.

The Aspern Urban Lakeside (officially also Aspern Urban Lakeside, project name: Aspern - Vienna's Urban Lakeside) is a part of town under construction in the 22nd district of Vienna Danube city and one of the largest urban development projects in Europe of the 2010s. Over a period of around 20 years a new district should arise, in which over 20,000 people are supposed to work and to live. The first of three development stages focuses until around 2017 to the south of the part of the city.

Location

Aspern Urban Lakeside with lake, 2012

The planned seaside town is located about 7 kilometers east of the city center, on the other bank of the Danube, already on the verge of March field (gravel and stone plain in Lower Austria bordering Vienna).

The area is bounded as follows:

In the north of the Marchegger Eastern Railway, forming since 1870 the (currently operated hourly) connection between Vienna and Bratislava and long has been used by the legendary Orient Express. The here layed out traffic station Vienna Aspern Nord offers since October 2013 U-Bahn (U2) underground traffic to the center of Vienna and from 2017 S-Bahn ÖBB (line S80) suburban traffic to Vienna's main train station as well as regional trains.

To the east beyond the Josefine Hawelka pathway or the Cassinonestraße adjoin settlements of the since 1938 belonging to Vienna outskirts village of Essling.

In the south adjoins to the site an extensive factory premises of General Motors Austria, which lies at the Groß-Enzersdorfer Road (bus number 26A), connecting Aspern and Essling.

In the West adjoins beyond the Johann Kutschera alley the belonging to Aspern suburban settlement to the area.

Positions of neighboring districts:

Hirschstetten, Breitenlee, Lackenjöchl

Neuessling

Outskirts settlement, neighboring communities, Essling, Aspern

History

The area northeast of the historic village of Aspern in March field was named after a man-made lake in the center of the development area.

On the former airfield Aspern, Vienna's airport during the interwar period, by the year 2028 around 240 hectares should be developed. This corresponds to the area of 7th and 8th district of Vienna. Planned are around 10,500 homes for 20,000 people and business premises for 15,000 office jobs as well as 5,000 jobs in industry, science, research and education.

For the development and utilization responsible is the Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG, a real estate development company which in December 2004 as a subsidiary company of the Vienna Business Agency, a fund of the City of Vienna (73.6%) and the (Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft) Federal Property Association (26.4%) was established. The planning is done in consultation with the relevant municipal departments of the city administration and the Wiener Linien, the public transport company of the city of Vienna.

Urban Planning

The urban concept of the maritime city is focused on the mixing of functions - there should be no purely residential use or commercial use. In this way, a dormitory town should be avoided and during the day non-stop revival obtained. The master plan for the seaside town was created by Swedish architect John Tovatt and adopted unanimously by the Vienna City Council on 25 May 2007. Essential contents are the functional arrangement of uses and the spatial configuration of both small and large urban gestures to an urban master plan.

Public space

The geographic center of the seaside town will form a 5-acre lake, which already largely exists, in a total of 9 hectare park. The lake is fed from groundwater. The public space - thus streets, squares and parks - occupies 50 percent of the total area of urban development.

In order to make the public space for the people who will live and work in the seaside town attractive, the Danish open space planners Gehl Architects by the Wien 3420 AG and the Municipal Department 19 (architecture) with the creation of a planning manual for public space (a "score of the public space") were commissioned. The planning manual is based on the idea that public life is a precious commodity that needs to focus it. Therefore Gehl Architects particularly important axes have worked out in the seaside town. The Circular road as a major route that has received the name Sun alley, the Red chord (shopping street, culture), the Blue string (sea park and promenade) and the Green string (green spaces, recreational areas). By 2015, three parks are built, the central Marine park, the Yella-Hertzka park and Hannah Arendt park, along with 8 hectares (May 26 2014 ground-breaking ceremony).

Development phases

The construction of the seaside town of Aspern is to take place until 2028 in three stages:

Stage 1 (2009-2017): The development company Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG builds the green spaces and the technical infrastructure (roads, sewage, etc.) and thus provides the impetus for the development of the maritime city. In the first large-scale expansion in the southwestern part of the maritime city arises a mixed quarter with approximately 2,600 residential units, offices, business and service companies as well as research and development facilities. The large volume is to ensure local supply and the desired mix of uses from the start. In October 2013, the metro stations Aspern North at the northern edge of the area and Seaside town as terminus of line U2 in the south have been opened. In this stage also falls the establishment of a R & D Park (research and development). As first impulse project there emerges an Innovation Quarter (Technology Centre), for which a realization competition was launched. With the IQ aspern by 2012 a first settlement core was created.

In the north of the Marchegger Eastern Railway, forming since 1870 the (currently operated hourly) connection between Vienna and Bratislava and long has been used by the legendary Orient Express. The here layed out traffic station Vienna Aspern Nord offers since October 2013 U-Bahn (U2) underground traffic to the center of Vienna and from 2017 S-Bahn ÖBB (line S80) suburban traffic to Vienna's main train station as well as regional trains.

To the east beyond the Josefine Hawelka pathway or the Cassinonestraße adjoin settlements of the since 1938 belonging to Vienna outskirts village of Essling.

In the south adjoins to the site an extensive factory premises of General Motors Austria, which lies at the Groß-Enzersdorfer Road (bus number 26A), connecting Aspern and Essling.

In the West adjoins beyond the Johann Kutschera alley the belonging to Aspern suburban settlement to the area.

Positions of neighboring districts:

Hirschstetten, Breitenlee, Lackenjöchl

Outskirts settlement, neighboring communities, Essling, Aspern

History

The area northeast of the historic village of Aspern in March field was named after a man-made lake in the center of the development area.

On the former airfield Aspern, Vienna's airport during the interwar period, by the year 2028 around 240 hectares should be developed. This corresponds to the area of 7th and 8th district of Vienna. Planned are around 10,500 homes for 20,000 people and business premises for 15,000 office jobs as well as 5,000 jobs in industry, science, research and education.

For the development and utilization responsible is the Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG, a real estate development company which in December 2004 as a subsidiary company of the Vienna Business Agency, a fund of the City of Vienna (73.6%) and the (Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft) Federal Property Association (26.4%) was established. The planning is done in consultation with the relevant municipal departments of the city administration and the Wiener Linien, the public transport company of the city of Vienna.

Urban Planning

The urban concept of the maritime city is focused on the mixing of functions - there should be no purely residential use or commercial use. In this way, a dormitory town should be avoided and during the day non-stop revival obtained. The master plan for the seaside town was created by Swedish architect John Tovatt and adopted unanimously by the Vienna City Council on 25 May 2007. Essential contents are the functional arrangement of uses and the spatial configuration of both small and large urban gestures to an urban master plan.

Public space

The geographic center of the seaside town will form a 5-acre lake, which already largely exists, in a total of 9 hectare park. The lake is fed from groundwater. The public space - thus streets, squares and parks - occupies 50 percent of the total area of urban development.

In order to make the public space for the people who will live and work in the seaside town attractive, the Danish open space planners Gehl Architects by the Wien 3420 AG and the Municipal Department 19 (architecture) with the creation of a planning manual for public space (a "score of the public space") were commissioned. The planning manual is based on the idea that public life is a precious commodity that needs to focus it. Therefore Gehl Architects particularly important axes have worked out in the seaside town. The Circular road as a major route that has received the name Sun alley, the Red chord (shopping street, culture), the Blue string (sea park and promenade) and the Green string (green spaces, recreational areas). By 2015, three parks are built, the central Marine park, the Yella-Hertzka park and Hannah Arendt park, along with 8 hectares (May 26 2014 ground-breaking ceremony).

Development phases

The construction of the seaside town of Aspern is to take place until 2028 in three stages:

Stage 1 (2009-2017): The development company Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG builds the green spaces and the technical infrastructure (roads, sewage, etc.) and thus provides the impetus for the development of the maritime city. In the first large-scale expansion in the southwestern part of the maritime city arises a mixed quarter with approximately 2,600 residential units, offices, business and service companies as well as research and development facilities. The large volume is to ensure local supply and the desired mix of uses from the start. In October 2013, the metro stations Aspern North at the northern edge of the area and Seaside town as terminus of line U2 in the south have been opened. In this stage also falls the establishment of a R & D Park (research and development). As first impulse project there emerges an Innovation Quarter (Technology Centre), for which a realization competition was launched. With the IQ aspern by 2012 a first settlement core was created.

Stage 2 (2017-2022): The Station Aspern North and the connection through a powerful city street to the A 23 motorway and the branch S 1 are completed. Other residential and mixed districts and the train station and office quarters arise.

Stage 3 (from 2022): To the train station, the shopping street and the subway route adjacent areas are further compressed, the mix of uses is further improved.

The master plan for the seaside town was created by Swedish architect John Tovatt and adopted unanimously by the Vienna City Council on 25 May 2007. Essential contents are the functional arrangement of uses and the spatial configuration of both small and large urban gestures to an urban master plan.

Public space

The geographic center of the seaside town will form a 5-acre lake, which already largely exists, in a total of 9 hectare park. The lake is fed from groundwater. The public space - thus streets, squares and parks - occupies 50 percent of the total area of urban development.

In order to make the public space for the people who will live and work in the seaside town attractive, the Danish open space planners Gehl Architects by the Wien 3420 AG and the Municipal Department 19 (architecture) with the creation of a planning manual for public space (a "score of the public space") were commissioned. The planning manual is based on the idea that public life is a precious commodity that needs to focus it. Therefore Gehl Architects particularly important axes have worked out in the seaside town. The Circular road as a major route that has received the name Sun alley, the Red chord (shopping street, culture), the Blue string (sea park and promenade) and the Green string (green spaces, recreational areas). By 2015, three parks are built, the central Marine park, the Yella-Hertzka park and Hannah Arendt park, along with 8 hectares (May 26 2014 ground-breaking ceremony).

Development phases

The construction of the seaside town of Aspern is to take place until 2028 in three stages:

Stage 1 (2009-2017): The development company Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG builds the green spaces and the technical infrastructure (roads, sewage, etc.) and thus provides the impetus for the development of the maritime city. In the first large-scale expansion in the southwestern part of the maritime city arises a mixed quarter with approximately 2,600 residential units, offices, business and service companies as well as research and development facilities. The large volume is to ensure local supply and the desired mix of uses from the start. In October 2013, the metro stations Aspern North at the northern edge of the area and Seaside town as terminus of line U2 in the south have been opened. In this stage also falls the establishment of a R & D Park (research and development). As first impulse project there emerges an Innovation Quarter (Technology Centre), for which a realization competition was launched. With the IQ aspern by 2012 a first settlement core was created.

Stage 2 (2017-2022): The Station Aspern North and the connection through a powerful city street to the A 23 motorway and the branch S 1 are completed. Other residential and mixed districts and the train station and office quarters arise.

Stage 3 (from 2022): To the train station, the shopping street and the subway route adjacent areas are further compressed, the mix of uses is further improved.

The Aspern Urban Lakeside (officially also Aspern Urban Lakeside, project name: Aspern - Vienna's Urban Lakeside) is a part of town under construction in the 22nd district of Vienna Danube city and one of the largest urban development projects in Europe of the 2010s. Over a period of around 20 years a new district should arise, in which over 20,000 people are supposed to work and to live. The first of three development stages focuses until around 2017 to the south of the part of the city.

Location

Aspern Urban Lakeside with lake, 2012

The planned seaside town is located about 7 kilometers east of the city center, on the other bank of the Danube, already on the verge of March field (gravel and stone plain in Lower Austria bordering Vienna).

The area is bounded as follows:

In the north of the Marchegger Eastern Railway, forming since 1870 the (currently operated hourly) connection between Vienna and Bratislava and long has been used by the legendary Orient Express. The here layed out traffic station Vienna Aspern Nord offers since October 2013 U-Bahn (U2) underground traffic to the center of Vienna and from 2017 S-Bahn ÖBB (line S80) suburban traffic to Vienna's main train station as well as regional trains.

To the east beyond the Josefine Hawelka pathway or the Cassinonestraße adjoin settlements of the since 1938 belonging to Vienna outskirts village of Essling.

In the south adjoins to the site an extensive factory premises of General Motors Austria, which lies at the Groß-Enzersdorfer Road (bus number 26A), connecting Aspern and Essling.

In the West adjoins beyond the Johann Kutschera alley the belonging to Aspern suburban settlement to the area.

Positions of neighboring districts:

Hirschstetten, Breitenlee, Lackenjöchl

Neuessling

Outskirts settlement, neighboring communities, Essling, Aspern

History

The area northeast of the historic village of Aspern in March field was named after a man-made lake in the center of the development area.

On the former airfield Aspern, Vienna's airport during the interwar period, by the year 2028 around 240 hectares should be developed. This corresponds to the area of 7th and 8th district of Vienna. Planned are around 10,500 homes for 20,000 people and business premises for 15,000 office jobs as well as 5,000 jobs in industry, science, research and education.

For the development and utilization responsible is the Wien 3420 Aspern Development AG, a real estate development company which in December 2004 as a subsidiary company of the Vienna Business Agency, a fund of the City of Vienna (73.6%) and the (Bundesimmobiliengesellschaft) Federal Property Association (26.4%) was established. The planning is done in consultation with the relevant municipal departments of the city administration and the Wiener Linien, the public transport company of the city of Vienna.
