Surrounded by leafy Augarten Park, the beautiful flowers in Wettstein Park, the popular Danube Canal and the vibrant 1st district, the LeopoldQuartier Office in Vienna provides the very best that a blend of nature and city life has to offer. In a nutshell, it is an ideal place to work. The city and its public transport links are easily reachable on foot, while the airport is only 20 minutes away by car. The LeopoldQuartier Office combines the benefits of its central location with the leisure potential of its neighbouring green space. Consequently, the location serves as a relaxed, calm anchor in the midst of bustling economic activity and community life.

Sustainability

For the future
of our planet
2
The LeopoldQuartier Office is designed to be comprehensively sustainable, with a focus on people and the environment in all planning decisions. Both construction and operation produce the lowest possible amount of CO2 emissions, and the building’s minimal ecological footprint makes it a green flagship project at the heart of the city.
Timber hybrid design

High-tech
sustainability

Buildings that use a timber hybrid design reduce their CO2 emissions by up to 80 percent compared to conventional structures. Modular, industrial prefabrication of the timber and hybrid elements makes construction quicker, quieter and cleaner as well.
The 4,000 solid cubic metres or 1,900 tonnes of spruce wood used for building the LeopoldQuartier Office also store 4,000 tonnes of CO2 over the long term. This corresponds roughly to the annual carbon emissions from a village with 500 inhabitants.
CO2-free operation

100 percent
renewable energy

Besides being good for the environment, this also lowers operating costs. Renewable energy from the ground and sun makes the building independent and enables costs to be calculated in advance.
The consistent use of geothermal energy, geocooling and photovoltaics for the LeopoldQuartier enables CO2-free operation. Power is generated entirely by renewable sources. In comparison to a conventional energy supply using district heating, the LeopoldQuartier saves about 330 tonnes of CO2, year after year.
Geothermal energy

Ground-sourced
heating and cooling

Energy generation for heating and cooling the LeopoldQuartier takes place entirely on-site. Via a network of 250 geothermal probes that are each buried 150 metres down into the ground, the building is heated and cooled by 5350 MWh of energy every year.
This on-site production of renewable energy also enables stable calculation of energy costs. The LeopoldQuartier Office outperforms other energy suppliers with attractive price indexing for heating and cooling.
Photovoltaics

Harnessing
the sun

Sustainability is therefore an area in which the LeopoldQuartier Office truly shines. When it comes to operating real estate, geothermal energy combined with photovoltaics is the ultimate in sustainable thinking.
More than 1300 intelligently positioned photovoltaic panels in the LeopoldQuartier deliver a total output of about 430 kWp. In combination with the geothermal plant, this ensures a largely independent energy supply throughout the building’s lifetime.
ESG and taxonomy

Fit for
capital markets

EU taxonomy defines criteria for CO2 emissions and energy efficiency, and also mandatory disclosure of ESG-relevant data. The financial markets are obliged to ensure that capital markets have a stronger orientation on sustainable and energy-saving investments. Only ESG-compliant projects are expected to receive financing in future.
The LeopoldQuartier Office fulfils all requirements of EU taxonomy and ESG relating to real estate. As a result, the building is ESG-compliant, i.e. green and sustainable with a seal of approval.
Certifications

Absolute transparency

Certification creates transparency and enables projects to be compared. The LeopoldQuartier is aiming for five of the relevant certificates:

DGNB in Gold from the German Sustainable Building Council as a holistically sustainable urban quarter, another DGNB in Gold for all structural parts for their timber hybrid design with holistic sustainability concepts, Greenpass certification for climate resilience and microclimate, the certificate for carbon-neutral construction and also DGNB in Gold for the sustainable deconstruction of buildings.

A working atmosphere
with a feel-good factor

Thanks to the positive image associated with a sustainable and healthy office, employees identify closely with their companies. Needless to say, motivated, high-performing employees are the most important resource that any company can have.
The extensive use of natural wood in the interior has a particularly beneficial effect on the health and well-being of the building’s users. As well as regulating temperature and humidity, wood has a calming influence on the cardiovascular system.

The flexible floor plans in combination with ideal spatial depth enable the room to be used with maximum efficiency, much to the satisfaction of employees and planners.

The LeopoldQuartier Office gives free rein to individuality, enabling a whole spectrum of concepts from single offices to open spaces or multifunctional areas. The office of tomorrow is constantly reinventing itself and is undoubtedly as variable as life itself.

Smart Sensor Technology
Intelligent sensors record the presence of office users in predefined zones of the building.
Intelligent Building Technology
Heating, cooling, sunshades and lighting are automatically controlled and personal preferences are stored.
Energy Optimization
Building automation optimizes energy needs, with positive effects on operating costs and sustainability.
CO2 Measurement
If the amount of CO2 in the air increases in a seminar room, the installed detectors communicate the need for extra ventilation.
Data Protection
All digitalization throughout the LeopoldQuartier conforms to privacy laws.
As the latest studies have shown, the climate change transition will not happen without intelligent buildings. Up to 30% energy can be saved if building technology systems are adapted to actual office use. The LeopoldQuartier keeps track of its own energy efficiency in real time.

Thomas Winkler, CEO
UBM Development AG

"Developing the LeopoldQuartier Office as a timber building creates a USP in Vienna. Our experience gained from building with wood in Frankfurt for Timber Pioneer can also be put to optimum use."

Gerald Beck, Managing Director
UBM Development GmbH

"In the LeopoldQuartier Office, a vision is becoming a reality: climate-friendly construction in the form of a trailblazing urban quarter. The LeopoldQuartier Office has a timber design and will attract people who want to experience answers to climate change in their everyday working environment. From an aesthetic perspective, it has palpable added value without any limits to its use."

Office Space

Offices for
all requirements

The LeopoldQuartier Office provides a total of 21,500 square metres on nine storeys of state-of-the-art office space. Food and retail outlets on the ground floor create added value to achieve a good work-life balance.
High ceilings, natural wooden surfaces and flexible partitioning deliver the best prerequisites for individual office concepts. Modern heating and cooling panel technology creates the greatest possible thermal comfort, while free-standing luminaires with direct or indirect lighting guarantee the right illumination at any time of day.

Green space.
On the water.
In Vienna.

A third of the Leopoldstadt district, which measures about 19 km², comprises the spacious Prater Park, the magnificent Augarten Park, and numerous green areas. The LeopoldQuartier will make its own contribution to Vienna’s green belt, and enable the city to breathe even cleaner air. At a prominent location in direct proximity to Vienna’s 1st district, the LeopoldQuartier will have direct access to the underground station Roßauer Lände, via the Siemens-Nixdorf footbridge.
