Urban Development

Orthofoto of the Südbahnhof and the surrounding areaThe task of urban development is to provide fundamental planning tools ensuring Vienna's innovative development in line with social, economic and ecological requirements. It is clear that this task requires cross-border cooperation with neighbouring provinces and countries, particularly in the framework of the European CENTROPE region.

The Urban Development Plan (Stadtentwicklungsplan - STEP) is an important tool in this context. For instance, it specifies whether an area is designated as green space or for traffic purposes, for commercial buildings or housing construction. STEP 05 also defines 13 target areas that have special potential and a key function for the city's further development. The Traffic and Transport Master Plan, drawn up in 2003, sets out the framework for sustainable and ecological transport strategies.

The multi-purpose city map plays a fundamental role in the planning process. It is a continuously updated digital map that provides a detailed view of buildings, roads, pavements or manholes in Vienna.
