The Millennium City was built in 1999 by the architects Gustav Peichl, Boris Podrecca and Rudolf F. Weber as Austria’s first town-in-town concept combining office and residential areas with shopping and entertainment zones. The Millennium City covers an area of 50,000 square metres with more than 100 well-known international stores and numerous gastronomic and entertainment facilities. An average of 14 million people each year frequent Austria’s most visited shopping and entertainment centre on the Waterfront. The sale of the Millennium City by MPC Capital to Morgan Stanley is noted as the biggest real estate deal of the year 2014.
Entertainment, Shopping & more
Renowned architects realised a vision for the twenty-first century with the Millennium City that set new standards in Vienna. The future-oriented planning of the most visited shopping and entertainment centre on the Waterfront is proving its worth even more today: Vienna’s first address on the Danube has been distinguished multiple times in sequence with the award of “best centre” by the famous Shopping Centre Performance Report Austria and also secured the top places in national ranking.
The building ensemble unifying office units in the 202 metres high Millennium Tower and residential units with the shopping and entertainment centre is a lighthouse project that has assumed a permanent place as one of Vienna’s architectural landmarks. The optimal infrastructure and connection to public urban transport and individual transportation has made the Millennium City a magnet for more than 850,000 people in the direct catchment area.
The Millennium City’s broad-based range encompasses around 100 well-known international stores, 30 bars, cafés and restaurants, also an entertainment area housing Austria’s biggest and most successful cinema, the UCI KINOWELT Millennium City. Meanwhile younger visitors converge on the Monki Park with the highest indoor rope-climbing garden in the country, while visitors of every age can enjoy the time of their lives in the 4,000 square metres of the Ocean Park, with its bowling alleys, video games and further entertainment options.
