About Vienna
• Austrian capital, situated in
the heart of Europe
• 1.84m inhabitants
• Mid-rise, mixed use, high
density (4,326 people/km2
)

The most liveable city
• Vienna topped Mercer’s Quality of Living
Ranking as the world’s most liveable city
for 8th time in a row in 2017
• Ranked 2nd in The Economist’s Global
Liveability Ranking 2016 and 3rd in
Monocle’s 2016 Quality of Life Survey
• Also ranked 1st in Roland Berger’s Smart
City Index 2017 and 4th in Arcadis
Sustainable Cities Index 2016
• Liveability is more than rankings and
statistics and those rankings pose a
danger to Vienna to rest on its laurels
Photocredit: Andreas Lindinger
A rapidly growing city
• Vienna is the fastest growing German-
speaking city (+188k people in 10 years)
• Vienna expected to grow from 1.8m
people in 2014 to 2m people in 2030
(same as at beginning of 20th century)
• Metropolitan Region expected to grow by
400,000 people to more than 3m in 2030
• Vienna has become Austria’s youngest
province and a more vibrant and diverse
city due to immigration and a baby boom
• Growth creates social, technological and
ecological challenges

Aiming for >80%
sustainable mobility
• Vienna is a walkable city with
world-class public transit as
its transportation backbone
• Today, 73% of trips are made
by sustainable modes
(transit, walking & cycling)
• Vienna aims to reduce the
share of car traffic to 20% by
2025, 15% by 2030 and less
than 15% by 2050

annual transit pass was
reduced to €365 (€1/day)
• Number of annual transit
pass holders doubled within
five years and surpassed
registered cars in 2015
• Transit trips (954m in 2016)
continue to grow steadily
• Number of registered cars is
constant despite population
growth by 137,000 people
(+8%) in the last five years

Urban Mobility Plan
• Paradigm change from transport planning
as a technical-logistic task to mobility as
an interdisciplinary challenge for society
• Prioritising sustainable modes with an
80:20 modal split target for 2025
• Ensuring mobility for all, irrespective of
income, social position and life situation
• Focus on sharing concepts, intermodal
solutions and coordinated approaches
• Need for compact urban development
• Chapter on regional mobility solutions
Six goals and nine fields of
action for mobility in Vienna
• Based on SUMP
methodology
• Incorporating
three principles
• Traffic safety
(Vision Zero)
• Universal
access
• Gender main-
streaming
and diversity
Source: City of Vienna
Public transit
• 5 subway, 29 tram and 127 bus lines and
6th largest tram network (175 km)
• 24-hour subway on weekends
• Extending U1 and U2 lines, building new
U5 line and modernising U4 and U6 lines
• New tram models (Flexity) and lines (focus
on feeder services and cross-city links)
• New buses (larger, more environmentally
friendly) and additional electric buses
• Principle of developing public transit in
new neighbourhoods in a timely manner
Photocredit: Andreas Lindinger
Commuter rail and regional
transport solutions
• Regional mobility is a challenge: 79% of
more than 500,000 commuters use cars
• Joint project by Vienna and Lower Austria
to upgrade the rapid transit network: New
trains, increased frequency, station
upgrades
• Regional mobility partnerships along the
main corridors
• Coordinated marketing & cross-boundary
multi-modal traffic information system
• Aligning spatial planning and regional
development with transport planning
Photocredit: Andreas Lindinger
Active transportation
• Closing the gaps in the cycling network by
building new bike lanes and opening
more one-way streets for two-way cycling
• Making cycling and walking safer and
more attractive
• Shorter waits and fewer traffic lights
• Further development of bike sharing
• Developing high-quality long-distance
cycling routes and strolling promenades

Parking Space Management
• Main tool to reduce car traffic and to
distribute scarce parking space
• First short-term parking zones introduced
in 1959 and parking fees since 1975
• Revenues are earmarked for public transit
• Two major expansions in 1993-99 (inner
districts) and in 2012/13 (outer districts)
• Reduction in parking spaces occupancy
rates, unauthorised parking, car traffic,
parked cars not from Vienna, pollution
• Challenge to avoid rebound effects
Photocredit: Andreas Lindinger
Calming traffic and re-
distributing space to people
• More than 65% of street surface is used
for motorised traffic and parking even
though only 28% of trips are made by car
• Introduction of more shared spaces and
pedestrian zones
• Temporary opening of streets for active
mobility (e.g. play streets, festivals)
• (Temporary) No-vehicle or traffic-calmed
zones in front of schools and nurseries
• Repurposing traffic lanes for lingering,
walking, public transport and cycling

…in the 1970s… (Wohnpark Alterlaa with rooftop+indoor pools, sauna, shops, community spaces…)

…and now. (Wohnzimmer project with pool, sauna, gym, cinema, library, youth space, common rooms…)
Photocredits: WohnzimmerWien (Sebastian Philipp, studiovlay/Jakob Winkler, PhotoDisc, PID)
A long standing tradition of
social housing
• Municipal housing booms in the 1920s
and 1950s-1980s, funded by Housing Tax
• High standard and communal facilities
• Subsidised housing construction is done
by non-profit housing associations and
cooperatives since 2004
• Today, one in four Viennese citizens lives
in municipal housing (2,000 complexes
with around 220,000 rental apartments)
• In total, social housing has ca. 400,000
dwellings distributed all over the city
Photocredit: Andreas Lindinger
A mixed system of demand
and supply side subsidies
• €600m per year in housing subsidies
• Direct assistance for low-income groups
• Investments in new housing and the
refurbishment of existing building stock
• Around 6,500 dwellings p.a. built by non-
profit associations with public funding
• Housing developers competitions with
four principles: architectural,
environmental, social and economic
decision criteria ensure that housing is
sustainable and affordable
Photocredit: Andreas Lindinger
But: Housing costs are major
challenge for a growing city!
• Policies ensure good social mix, afford-
ability and high quality of housing
• Private landlords compete with social
housing and cannot afford to inflate rents
• However, given the city’s recent growth,
rents and prices for apartments have
increased significantly more than people’s
incomes

Smart City Wien Framework
Strategy
• Mid-term (2030) and long-term (2050)
• Resources, quality of living & innovation
• Best quality of living for all people in the
city - combined with maximum resource
preservation which is brought about by
comprehensive innovation
• Social inclusion: All economic, structural
and technological change processes must
take account of the needs of all groups
(promoting diversity, equal opportunities)
• Cooperation: Supportive and structuring
principle for all documents and plans
STEP 2025 Urban
Development Plan
• Refining strategies and instruments for
the needs of a rapidly growing city
• Urban development as a collective task
for policymakers, businesses & the public
• Governance (public and private sectors as
partners), cooperation with districts and
within region, and public participation
• Three sections with eight key topics
• The built city, Space for urban growth, Centers
and underused areas
• Business/Science/Research, Metropolitan region
• Open spaces (green & urban), Diversified
Mobility, Social Infrastructure
Striving for high-quality
mixed and vibrant quarters
• Further developing existing urban
quarters and creating new qualities
• Developing new urban development
zones – such as Aspern Seestadt, former
industrial areas or the former railway
station areas Nordbahnhof, Nordwest-
bahnhof and Sonnwendviertel
• Vienna aims for mixed and vibrant urban
quarters with high development potential
and excellent building culture, with
streets and squares as places of
encounter and lively ground-floor zones
Photocredit: Andreas Lindinger
Ensuring equal opportunities
in a more diverse city
• Process-oriented approach to safeguard
quality in planning with regards to equal
opportunities of different user groups
• Introduced in all planning processes:
master plans / concepts /visions, land use
and development plans, project planning
• Focus: Urban structure, space creation,
housing quality; Public space and mobility
• Exemplary topics: Tightly-knit route
network, local centres, social infra-
structure, diverse flat layouts/typologies,
open spaces, design and distribution of
public spaces, sustainable transport
Green spaces across the city (Green Prater, Vineyards)
Source: City of Vienna; Photocredits: Andreas Lindinger
Half of Vienna’s land is green space
Preserving and creating high-
quality green/open spaces
• Three new large-scale recreation areas
• Open Space Network that connects green
and open spaces from the outskirts of the
city to densely developed urban areas
• Fostering compact types of housing and a
city of short distances, with max. 250m
distance to the open space network
• Securing green and open spaces in urban
development competitions, master plans
and land use and development plans
• Green space interventions (green facades)
and citizen projects (urban farming)
Case: Aspern Seestadt
• Vienna’s largest development project,
constructed in 2010-28 (several phases)
• Development agency Wien 3420
• 20,000 people and 20,000 workplaces
• U2 subway extension finished one year
before first residents moved in (2014)
• First managed shopping street ensures
diverse mix of shops and amenities
• Mobility fund: bike sharing (incl. cargo
bikes), car sharing, bike/shopping trailer,
mobility access card, project funding

Case: Nordbahnhof
• One of several former railway station sites
as major inner-city development areas
• 10,000 apartments for 20,000 residents
and 20,000 workplaces by 2025
• 1st part built around major new park with
good transit access, education campus
and proximity to major recreation areas
• Diversity of housing concepts but lack of
ground floor spaces and mixed use
• 2nd part that is currently developed and
built until 2025 has high density at the
edges around a 10-hectare green middle
