Seestadt Aspern is one of Europe’s largest and Vienna’s most exciting urban development projects. When complete, it will be a whole new city, home to 20,000 people. Karl Slabschi, who was one of the first people to move there, not only gave us his perspective and a lot of planning facts on Seestadt Aspern, but he also invited us into conversations with the owners of the local bike café, a salon, a bookshop, and other residents and city-makers. This new neighbourhood has its own bikeshare system, a managed shopping street, and a tiny, mobile construction site restaurant that relocates with each phase of construction.
