Vienna Productive City
Type of solution: Spatial planning
From a spatial planning perspective the city, together with other stakeholders, thought about the claim of space this good handling would need, already in an earlier phase. In the ‘Productive City’ (Produktieve Stadt), started in November 2017, the city is prominently mentioning the big need for space to handle goods. This is another initiative of Vienna and Lower Austria combining several other stakeholders at city and regional level. This approach should offer solutions for finding space for ‘new’ industrial functions in the city of the future. As freight operators and national road and rail operators are not among the stakeholders (yet), the outcomes are expected to stay mostly within the silo of the own planners and business community.
