On 24. October 2012 at a pressconference municipal councilor Michael Ludwig presented the very first SMART-apartments by Geiswinkler & Geiswinkler in the new "Sonnwendviertel"-district in Vienna.
"The qualities of the SMART-apartments lie in the suitability for daily use by offering low costs in equity capital and rent at the same time. The apartments are arranged compactly, but guarantee a generous living experience. Variations of the size of the rooms, as well as their furnishing and the private balcony enable additional individual space and ensure a higher value for the residents."
The completion of the project (together with our property developer Heimbau) is planned for November 2015.
