Urbanity of the future – it has already arrived in Graz. Because with the two new city districts Reininghaus and Smart City, Graz is showing what residential zones, living areas and mobility of the future already look like now. And Holding Graz is also a strong partner in the development of these new city districts.
Reininghaus tram expansion
A new city district is being created until 2025 between the districts of Gries, Wetzelsdorf and Eggenberg – with everything that this entails. Schools, parks, commercial enterprises, cycle paths and much more – the residents of Reininghausgründe will find all this in future in their district. Graz Linien will provide the connection to the city – Line 4 is currently being expanded and will be completed by the end of 2021 in the direction of Reininghaus; there will also be a connection via the bus lines 62 and 66.
And of course our innovative mobility service “tim” will also be present in the new city district – Reininghaus will be given two “tim” locations.
Tram expansion Smart City
Energy efficiency, saving of resources and the curtailment of emissions – that is what makes a Smart City, that is residential, mobility and living, as it should and must be in the future. Graz has committed itself to achieving these goals – and is already implementing them in the new city district “My Smart City Graz”. With the conversion of Graz central station incl. the tram underpass at the Eggenberger Gürtel to create the largest local transport hub in south-eastern Europe, the area around the station is the most developed area in Graz. Directly adjoining this area, in the vicinity of the Helmut List Hall, an innovative district is being created that combines residential areas with office and commercial space as well as leisure facilities.
The tram (Line 6) will also drive to this district too in future. From as early as the end of 2021, the new tram will run via Daungasse and Waagner-Biro-Straße in a northerly direction until Peter-Tunner-Gasse and connect the new city district in an environmentally friendly way. And “tim” will also be present in the smartest district of Graz.
