The primary focus of “sensitive urban renewal,” a successful Viennese model introduced nearly 40 years ago, has always been on affordable housing based on subsidy schemes, social sustainability, and a comprehensive renewal strategy in the “core city.” The resulting positive trends in urban renewal zones’ architectural, social, and economic development are evident. In addition, targeted refurbishment and new-build projects upgrade and rejuvenate local neighborhoods. The teams of experts at the respective Local Area Renewal Offices serve as the hub for all renewal processes and all questions relating to housing, the local environment, and good community relations within neighborhoods.
