23.04.2007: Flughafen Wien AG acquires the World Trade Center at Vienna International Airport
Flughafen Wien AG has acquired the World Trade Centerat Vienna International Airport - an office building with roughly 18,000 mē of rentable space - from the previous owner retroactive as of 1 January 2007. The relevant contracts were signed recently by the parties to the transaction. The World Trade Center will now be known as the Office Park 3. This building was constructed in 1989 on property owned by Flughafen Wien AG, across from the arrivals hall and adjacent to the nh-Hotel.
Vienna Airport Office Park: 64,000 mē of rentable space
Office Park 1 and 2 have an occupancy rate of 94%. Office Park 1 opened in autumn 2004 and Office Park 2 - the new headquarters for the Austrian Airlines Group ? will be turned over to the tenant this summer. The current high level of occupancy led to the decision by Flughafen Wien AG to start the third phase of this project, whereby the available options included the construction of a new building or the acquisition of the World Trade Center. This building will now be renovated to reflect the standards of the Office Park, and will then be operated as Office Park 3. Together with this third facility, Flughafen Wien AG will have 64,000 mē of offices at the heart of the airport. The Office Park 3 still has space available for rental.
The office location with optimal infrastructure
The office sector of Vienna International Airport is located close to the airport railway station, which is currently under renovation to also accommodate international long-distance trains. The City Airport Train (CAT) takes passengers non-stop in 16 minutes from the Centre of Vienna to the airport every half-hour. Other plus points include opportunities for parking in car parks and open-air lots, a wide variety of restaurants and shops, and - last but not least - travelling time of only ten minutes from the office to the departure gates for flights to 176 destinations throughout the world
