A new City District has been developed on the grounds of the former Kabelwerk factory in Wien-Meidling on the basis of what is a unique planning process to date. Unusual in the process was that local residents, among others, had a say in the planning.

This project is colourful and marked by the variety of shapes. The entire site is a car-free zone and provides a varied living space for families (with a public square, cultural activities etc.). It is characterised by a rich mix of different types of architecture, from terraced housing to a high-rise. Alongside about 10,000 apartments there is a comprehensive urban infrastructure: shops, restaurants, kindergartens, a rooftop swimming pool, a public park, home for the elderly and direct access to two U-Bahn stations etc.
