Over the years, the Viennese development firm has been increasingly involved in providing services to other firms as well, such as in Vienna, Innsbruck and Belgrade. As Gerald Beck, MRICS and Managing Director at Raiffeisen evolution, put it “in addition to our own projects, our company structure and presence in these markets enables us to work as a contractor for other companies as well.” Recently the company completed its work as a contractor for the large space2move office project in the 19th District of Vienna.
Markus Neurauter, Managing Director and spokesman of the Board at Raiffeisen evolution, explained “project development is our core business and our passion – but it is also the riskier business. As a service contractor one can navigate in a safe haven.” Thus, Raiffeisen evolution was responsible for the entire project steering and building supervision for the space2move project.
space2move - Offices with Far-Reaching Views
It was already at the end of 2011 that the first building phase (two parts) of the office project at an attractive location in Vienna’s 19th District was completed. The investor and developer of the property has been Raiffeisen Property International GmbH, while the project was planned by architect Heinz Neumann.
Peter Jäger, responsible for letting at RPI, pointed out that “a site directly adjacent to the Heiligenstadt U4 subway station is perfectly suited for a modern office building, as is the plot itself. In its final stage, the building shall comprise three connecting complexes, all of which are low energy buildings. Thus, space2move is an absolutely sustainable building.”
The first building phase comprises 26,500 m² of upscale office areas, 60 % of which are already rented out. An additional 20,000 m² of rental area will be available once phase 3 is completed. The project offers its users economic advantages and opportunities for flexible use. The rental areas are from 220 m² upward and can be arranged individually. Peter Jäger from RPI concludes that “it is of utmost importance to us that all tenants can arrange their areas in such way as to best meet their individual requirements.”
