Topping out ceremony for the “The Icon Vienna”

The shell of the business center close to the Vienna Main Railroad Station is completed.

Now it was time to proceed with the "topping out ceremony” (Dachgleiche) meaning the reinforced concrete cover for the highest of the three towers of "The Icon Vienna" had been poured.
The design by JSWD originated at the International Architectural Design Competition in partnership with BEHF Architects of Vienna. Three towers in the form of smooth rocks, each rising to a different height, are linked at the base by a covered shopping arcade, which gives the new urban quarter its distinct character. The public shopping arcade accommodates and channels the visitors thus adopting a steering function between the First Campus, the Belvedere Quartier and the new railroad station.
