The breaking of the ground in the early summer of 2010 marked the beginning of a new landmark in Vienna. Directly on the banks of the Donau in the newest developing area the Donau City Tower is located. This new office tower houses a hotel as well as other diverse, public facilities.
The DC Tower 1 is one of the two towers designed by Dominique Perrault, and, towering to 220 meter in height, is the highest building in Austria and transforms the Vienna skyline.
The contract for the façade of DC-T1 was won by Strabag AG. Thomas Lorenz ZT GmbH was entrusted by Strabag with the responsibility to provide the load bearing calculations for the façade.
The DC Tower 1 was opened in 2014.
