Studies & Concepts

In addition to forward-looking spatial planning, studies are a prerequisite for well thought-out and orderly urban development. They show development trends and goals and prepare strategic decisions , which in turn feed into local spatial planning (e.g. studies on protected zones, high-rise studies, retail studies, spatial development studies, ...).

Since spring 2022, the largest commercial and industrial area in western Austria has been made fit for the future in close cooperation with Service Unit Economy and tourism and an external team of experts led by the Viennese office RAUMPOSITION. Through an integrated planning approach, topics such as mobility, energy and site development are being developed jointly and interlinked.

What can an existing business park look like in the future? What qualities does an attractive working environment need? How can mobility function in the future? All of these questions and many other aspects are to be explored in more detail with the broad participation of entrepreneurs, employees and magiinternal specialists as well as interested parties during excursions, workshops, surveys and a wide range of information events.

The aim is to present a development strategy for Roßau at the end of the two-year process, which should lay the foundations for the business park of the future. However, short and medium-term solutions are also to be developed during the project phase.

Retail structure analysis: The local supply situation in Innsbruck, Rum and Völs (overall view)

Since fall 2020, the updated, superordinate retail structure analysis for the location area of Innsbruck, Rum and Völs has been available to the city of Innsbruck. The order was placed jointly by the Tyrol Chamber of Commerce and the City of Innsbruck. The aim is to continue the time series started in 2002 and thus to obtain a monitoring of the various changes in the retail sector in a long-term view. For example, the intensified supra-local competition, the growing importance of online retailing for consumers, population growth, the change of product range in certain business locations, expansion efforts of shopping centers, etc. are considered. The results are to be used to document changes in the retail landscape and to create a sound, updated basis for further decisions on retail developments in relation to Innsbruck as a location.
