No skyscrapers, merely highrises. Some of them will be close to 100 m but all of them below 100 m. This is also because of the vicinity to the UNESCO protected Belvedere palace.

First time I take a look to this project...impressive! Rather simple but being completely functional is the way to go. Keep the updates coming

What a beautiful station this is going to be!
Folks, consider visiting Vienna by train, not by airplane

I really like the idea of the fly-over rail track. Nice development!

The tracks are showing great progress. After all the first rail connection via the first half of the new station are planned to be operational by August. By then the temporary track north of the station is being torn down and the upper part of the station going to be built.

Construction of the ÖBB headquarters right next to the stations south entrance was started a short time ago.



The lower 5 levels are to host commerce, gastronomy, a police station and social services. The upper floor will be office space for the ÖBB.

An update from the Austrian forum on the starting work at the ÖBB headquarters site right next to the southern station entrance. The picture shows also very well how the surrounding surface is progressing. No wonder, given that the southern part is planned to get operational by end of this year.

Well this whole project is definitely playing in the top league size wise as well since the overall project is far more than just a new railway station. The urban development area "Wien Hauptbahnhof" has around 1 km² and is as big as Vienna's 8th district. In order to connect all the important railway lines from the west, south, east and north at the new central station a 13 km tunnel was dug underneath the city, which also cost a shitload of money, but will tremendously increase travel quality and save time.

3 tracks of the station were opened to regular train traffic recently. No stops so far but the southern half of the station is starting to operate as rail station. All the trains that are still terminating at the temporary "Ostbahnhof" will head to the new main station then instead. The temporary "Ostbahnhof" as well as the temporary tracks across the construction site will be torn down now and the second half of the station can be constructed afterwards.

New picture of the platforms which gives a good impression on how they are going to look like.

New pictures taken from an infrequently updated panorama webcam:



http://www.hauptbahnhof-wien.at/de/S...biet/index.jsp

In the very upper right corner the ERSTE bank HQ is under construction, directly below is the temporary terminal station for trains towards the east, in December these trains will be transfered to the newly opened first half of the main station which is when the temporary station will be torn down.

The temporary rail connection which sidelines the main station as it stands now is already being deconstructed. No very well visible on this picture is the extension of the D tram line to the east end of the main station (lower right side on picture)





Zoom in to the first residential quarter under construction, the "Sonnwendviertel":
