The residential project “Meynertgasse” is located in an upscale residential area in the centre of Klosterneuburg, which has established itself as providing residents with a high quality of life close to Vienna. In the immediate vicinity of the project, numerous local shops, cafes, banks, doctors and other services to meet the needs and wants of daily living, can be found. Public educational institutions such as kindergartens, elementary schools and high schools are also within walking distance. With these, the high quality recreational facilities and the high standard of living on offer, being complimented by its proximity to the city centre of Vienna (only a 20-minute drive away), Klosterneuburg, and in particular “Meynertgasse”, is an ideal residential location.
On a slightly inclined plot with a view of the old town centre, the project, consisting of 8 semi-detached houses, is being built near the town centre of Klosterneuburg, on land leased from the municipality.
Located within walking distance of the Klosterneuburg centre and all shopping facilities, the plots of land are close to beautifully developed residential areas and local vineyards.
Houses 1-4 are accessed via Meynertgasse, houses 5-12 via Steinhäuselgasse and houses 13-16 via Wisentgasse. The parking spaces are located at the street entrances on private grounds and in the garages.
TYPES OF HOUSES
Each house consists of a basement, a ground floor and an upper floor. Type B houses have one car space in the garage in the basement; houses of type A and C have their parking space at the side of each house. When developing the floor plans of each house, much consideration has been given to, and the emphasis has been on, the practicality and liveability of the houses.
The houses are being built on leasehold property/land.
This means that the leaseholder (licensee) pays the landowner monthly for the right to use the property. This right is secured by a lease agreement, which is registered in the Austrian land register.
All rights to the building are held by the leaseholder.
The advantage of a house on leased property, clearly, is the price. Since the upfront land costs are eliminated, the houses can be offered at much lower prices. It reduces the purchase price by approx. € 1,500 per square meter.
Although the licensee is a tenant of the leased property, they own the building on this property. The building can be sold, rented, pledged, and of course bequeathed.
Austrian building law („Baurecht“) allows for a building to be erected on leasehold property („Baurechtsgrund“), and it is common practice for the lease to be for a period of one hundred years.

Idea of ??”Transitional living”
Behind the concept of these houses is the idea of ??”transitional living”. The generous glazing on the two narrow sides of the building gives you the sense of a harmonious transition between the outdoor green space and the living and dining area. The sidewalls of the building were sealed off against its neighbouring properties and the visual focus is directed towards the monastery and the old town centre.
The natural sunlight enters from the east in the morning, with the evening light also illuminating the room to a late hour.
Aluminium-wood triple-glazed insulated windows, underfloor heating, air heat pump, electric roller shutters, real wood parquet flooring, large format tiles in the bathrooms and toilets, high-quality bathroom and toilet furnishings and fittings from well-known manufacturers, state-of-the-art pre-wiring for telephone, internet and cable TV, as well as sufficient lighting and power outlets. An optional alarm system can also be installed.
