Bellavista: A New Model for Vienna´s Subsidized Housing
While Vienna’s subsidized housing program has been enjoying a worldwide reputation for many years a new type of subsidized rental housing is on the way with the aptly named “Bellavista” (“good view”) project. A group of future residents formed an association called SOLLVILL (standing for solidarian living in the Village im Dritten, in Vienna´s inner-city third district) aiming at creating a socially and demographically mixed neighborhood with a package of community-building activities. These will also include Vienna´s first Community Nurse and a “saluto-genetic” center focusing on low threshold health services with an emphasis on prevention. Push will keep you informed about the progress of the estate which is expected to open in 2024.
