The 65,000 sqm building is located in the dominant office district of Donau City in Vienna. It is one of the main business locations in Vienna, and is a district that draws international occupiers as it houses the United Nations European Campus, which plays host to several government agencies. The district is well located, with nearby access to the A22 and public transport offers fast connections to local and national transport infrastructure
