The G3 Shopping Resort Gerasdorf benefits the surrounding area: together with the specialist retail park, it employs 1,600 people, while a further 900 jobs have been created as a knock-on effect. It boosts growth in the region by increasing purchasing power, creating jobs and providing essential services to the rapidly growing population north of Vienna. In Gerasdorf itself the Resort has increased employment opportunities by almost 50%. G3 staff are recruited continually in close cooperation with the employment office.
The G3 Shopping Resort Gerasdorf is home to over 140 shops on 70,000 m² of floor space. An entirely new feel-good concept gives you an unprecedented shopping experience. Local products and services make the G3 Shopping Resort Gerasdorf a “marketplace for the region”.
The architecture plays an important role in the feeling of well-being that fills the Shopping Resort: the building, with its undulating roof like a giant wave, fits snugly into the rolling Weinviertel countryside, while the interior is dominated by natural light, soothing colours and superior materials. It is one of the few shopping centres in Europe to have consulted feng shui experts even in the planning stage. And to make navigation easier, the entire car park was given a clear structure by a landscape designer.
Sustainability was already an issue during construction, and is a central element of the entire concept of the G3 Shopping Resort Gerasdorf. High energy efficiency is achieved thanks to optimised building technology, low-energy lighting and intelligent energy management software. The building is heated by a nearby biomass heating plant. In addition, state-of-the-art noise insulation measures and a highly effective waste management concept ensure ecological sustainability. During the environmental impact assessment, measures were also devised in cooperation with ecologists to protect the habitats of local fauna.
