90.000m3 cubage waiting to be used.

Having aged to become industrial monuments, the four gasometer in Simmering have long served as a landmark. Thousands of construction workers and craftsmen are currently hard at work in and around them to realise the results of the client’s competition. The spectacular renovation of the defiant quadruplets can be admired in stages A-D of its mutation into Alphaville. The names of the architects responsible for the plans promise a differentiated future rich in experiences for the industrial monuments.
