Update from KingNick:

One month ago trains were still running on the temporary double track sidelining the construction site. Now its already almost torn down. It makes place for the 2nd construction phase towards the north.

Construction works on completing the second, northern, half of the station have begun. The southern entrance is showing progress as well, not much left to do until December where it is set to open for partial service. There is also clear progress on the ÖBB headquarters site right next to the entrance.

Fortschrittsglaube made some great photos.

Breathtaking panorama of the site, showing the station and the other ongoing construction works:

Only about one and a half months until the partial opening of the station.

And here is a first glimpse of the interior design which looks slightly retro, dominated by an Austrian stone, Tauerngrün, which is a serpentine.

Looks fantastic!

I arrived in Vienna at the Sudbahnhof during the summer. I hadn't realised that the construction work was for this.

Less than a month to go for the first two platforms to be opened. Work on the second half of the station is progressing.

It seems very Japanese, almost like the Hakata Station in Fukuoka. I quite like it.

Panorama shot from the official project site
(http://hauptbahnhof-wien.at/de/Servi...?imageOid=2460)

It seems to be about one month old, pretty recent therefore.

Looks like a decent project. I wonder how will it fit to the classical style of Vienna?

The station will be embedded in a modern neighbourhood. But the fringes of that neighbourhood, especially towards the Guertel in the north, will certainly contrast to the largely old buildings on the other side of the street. I guess its up to personal taste if one likes that or not. What I think will be rather cool is the corner facing the Belvedere palace. It seems the architects of the ERSTE campus really considered that view when they designed one of the main entrance areas of the complex.

But whatever is going to be built there it will be an improvement over the urban wasteland it was before mainly, except maybe for the old station hall which was seriously neglected as well however.

The Guertel itself, while being expanded for car traffic (but also vastly improved for pedestrians and cyclists), is going to look much nicer, because there will be buildins on both sides but also because a lot of trees are planted creating a bit of a boulevard feeling, where before there was only a heavily trafficked concrete desert.

A visualization to give you an idea:
