Vacancy is a phenomenon that can be found in both rural and urban areas. In view of the increasing development of space, vacant/unused rooms represent a reserve of use that is not exhausted. The reasons of vacant rooms are just as diverse as their effects in particular in relation to the open space, which is the core of this work. The question arises as to which extent certain open space variables are related to vacancies and uses at ground floor, so that they can influence the selection of options for subsequent use. For this purpose, vacancies and uses at ground floor of two selected areas in Vienna were surveyed as well as the occurrence and form of open space variables around the rooms, which were predetermined before based on a literature search. The data were then evaluated and analyzed using the programme Excel. Statistical methods were also used to make a statement about whether there is a likelihood of a connection between an individual open space variable and its characteristics and a used or vacant room. It has been shown that around a fifth of the rooms at ground floor can be allocated as vacancy according to the chosen definition, another fifth is likely to be used and the remaining 60% are clearly used space. Of these, the uses most strongly represented are those of trade, services, gastronomy and accommodation and office facilities, along with a range of other uses. In view of the withdrawal of trade this raises the question of how vacant rooms can be used and whether certain regulations in this regard, such as zoning, but also the parking space regulation, need to be adapted. The analysis of the open space variables has made clear, that stationary traffic dominates the street which shows how pedestrians and cyclists are listed behind. However those are the main target groups for uses at ground floor. They are also disadvantaged in terms of visibility and accessibility if development doesn’t focus on the quality of urban space for pedestrians.
