Currently, Leopoldstadt is one of the most modern and most dynamic districts of Vienna. Its cityscape changes constantly, such that it has become a colourful mix of historic and modern buildings (e.g. Marina tower). The 2013 built university of economics (Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien) has led a lot of investors and developers into the 2nd district, as the demand and necessity for leasable area has risen. Leopoldstadt has numerous green areas, as the parkland Prater Park which is a protected landscape and the beautiful park Augarten which has a total area of 52.2 hectare and has the oldest baroque garden area of Vienna.
Furthermore, the 2nd district offers because of its outstanding location numerous commercial properties for rent as well as for sale. Since the renovation of Prater`s surrounding area (expansion of the public transport system; reconstruction of the exhibition centre “Messe Wien”; construction of a congress center), the 2nd district attracts business people as well as company headquarters. Nevertheless, Leopoldstadt is also a family oriented district because of its distinct educational infrastructure. Considering all mentioned factors, the average price for proprietorship of living space is around € 5,181/m².
The 2nd district is also known for its numerous tourist attractions (amusement park Prater, 300 year old Viennese porcelain manufactory, Museum of modern art, Park Augarten, Ernst-Happel-Stadium) which guarantees a stable all-year tourist flow.
