22 milestones and a view to more

Something personal
Back to overview

An intensive year is coming to an end. The fact that we as a company can look to the future with optimism despite the many crises all around, is due to a great deal of hard (team) work, an excellent strategy, joy in designing, a touch of luck, and a strong network. Let’s take a look back at the highlights of 2022, and look forward to what is awaiting us in the year to come ...

The obvious
first ...

As can be seen in our team photo: We are continuing to grow and our team is now a total of 29 employees, including a few freelancers. Fresh, clever, funny, and creative minds strengthen our company. Both in our day-to-day work and at special events in between, we do everything to ensure that our team structure remains as strong and full of spirit as it has always been.

And now on to the projects!

In early 2022, we opened the STZ Weidfeld in Traun. On 23 January 2023, the primary care center, the pharmacy, and the medical supply store will also celebrate their grand opening. The remaining areas of the 3,000-m², barrier-free Med Center Traun will be completed in spring 2023. We have almost finished building the vision of a modern market center for shopping, work, health, leisure, and enjoyment that was promised at the beginning of the project!

We also completed the climate-friendly residential project City. Country. Kisses. in Graz. Tears of joy were even shed by the new owners at the apartment handover ceremony in September, an experience that motivated us greatly.


We also completed the property sale and the construction of accessways, connections, and roads for the project Left & Right of the Lake.


Around 37,000 m² of industrial and mixed building lots have changed hands in Enns and Asten, and a new business park will be constructed there in the years to come. A painting company will go into business as early as spring 2023, and other companies will follow in 2024.

With Living in St. Gotthard and the award-winning project The Blend, we were able to get to work on not one, but two major building sites in Vienna in April and August. A total of almost 200 apartments with around 9,000 m² of usable floor area (plus outdoor spaces) and around 3,000 m² of commercial space (dining, kindergarten, orthopedic center, offices, etc.) are being built. The combination of living and infrastructure—a mixed use concept—ensures short distances and networking and is socially and ecologically sustainable. It goes without saying that both projects, which have already been sold to investment companies in a forward deal, boast state-of-the-art energy supply through geothermal energy systems (and much more!).

Two important milestones were reached shortly before the end of the year:

  • On 15 December, we sold the Dock 27 project, an office building in Vienna-Simmering which we renovated, fully rented, and added a sustainable photovoltaic system to in summer 2022, to a group of Viennese investors.
  • Two days earlier, the Ansfelden municipal council unanimously decided to sell Teilraum 31 to AVORIS. Teilraum 31 is almost 12 hectares of residential development area with a view of the foothills of the Alps. We will now begin making a plan for the coming years based on an architectural competition and then move on to building. Hello to our largest and most demanding project so far!  

2023 is coming soon!

In the first few weeks of 2023, we will start the Wienerwald View residential project in Kaltenleutgben and will soon publish new housing projects designed for owner-occupiers: One in the 23rd district of Vienna and another in St. Florian near Linz. According to the building authorities, the permitting procedures for both are in the home stretch.

Numerous other residential and commercial projects in Styria, Lower Austria, Upper Austria, and Vienna are in various phases of purchasing, planning, and approval. We are also confident that we will finally get the approvals for our Vienna Urban Oasis project in 2023. In order to make good use of the excellent building location until construction can begin, we will continue the interim cultural project Wild in the West. And any apartment vacancies in projects still in the planning phase will be occupied by Ukrainian families fleeing the war …


Even more has happened at AVORIS. We are now active on social media (please follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn) and there is a brand new AVORIS video on our homepage that will definitely answer all your questions about who we are, what we do, and how and why.


We don’t want to give you the wrong impression: things don’t run smoothly every single day. Project partners drop out unexpectedly, it can takes years to get a signature, another developer gets the contract for a long-courted project, or approval processes just don’t align with our company project schedules ...

But it always seems to balance out by something in a different area going more smoothly. When one door closes, another opens.

We are looking forward to 2023! And in the run-up to it, a well-deserved break and some relaxation. We wish you, too, a good holiday rest! Much joy & little worry. Sweetly ringing bells, gently snowflakes, and a celebration just the way you like it!
