The “Ost. Wohnen am Stadttor” residential complex
PORR helps build major project in Graz
On behalf of VENTA, 6B47, and GRAWE, PORR is constructing the residential and business complex “Ost.Wohnen am Stadttor” (East. Living at the City Gate). The project volume is around EUR 31 million.
The project, which is planned as a new gateway to Graz city centre, is centrally located at the end of Conrad-von-Hötzendorfstraße directly opposite the Merkur Arena in Graz. Because of the nearby A2 motorway exit, it is well connected to the high-level road network. PORR was commissioned as general contractor for the construction project and will complete it within two years.
The most striking and widely visible part of the building, which consists of five structures, is the 40-m-high “Conrad” tower. A supermarket and a café are planned in the ground floor zone, which connects all the buildings. The ground floor features a green inner courtyard as well as the four other buildings named after the surrounding streets: “Bertha”, “Ulrich”, “Sebastian”, and “Johann”. These have around 370 apartments and a nursery school. Construction will cover a total gross area of approx. 49,000m². PORR is also responsible for the design of the forecourt, which will form a unit with the stadium square.
