Vienna is growing. The city's strong growth has resulted in structural and spatial densification and upgrading. This is also the case in the 7th district of Neubau, an attractive residential and business location with a high quality of life. In particular, the small-scale living and business rooms that allow a variety of uses and the ground floor zone, good local amenities and short distances make up the quality of life in the 7th district. In this work, the structural-spatial transformation processes and the associated socio-economic, demographic and ecological changes are presented, that are currently taking place in the 7th district – with a focus on the district part of Schottenfeld. The current transformation processes of the building and open space structures in Schottenfeld are presented in their urban, economic, socio-spatial and historical context and interpreted in terms of planning. As a result, three principles are derived: compression, upgrading and arriving. Gentrification processes are associated with the consolidation and upgrading of building and open space structures. High-priced living space is created through loft extensions and new buildings and the ground floor zone is upgraded. Life in the 7th district is becoming more expensive due to rising land and rental prices and displacement effects are emerging. As a result of the densification, there are fewer open spaces available to the residents. Schottenfeld and the 7th district close to the “Gürtel” is still a place of arrival of international immigration to the “Arrival City” of Vienna, where immigrants can find the social networks and structures to settle. Using the example of Schottenfeld in the 7th district, I demonstrate a development that takes place similarly in Biedermeier and Wilhelminian style districts of Vienna with comparable structures and show planning principles for open space development that sustainably supports the quality of life in the 7th district.
