6B47 Real Estate Investors AG and all its subsidiaries follow three clear guiding principles
Entrepreneurial thinking and charting new courses
A transparent and professional approach informed by ESG
Working with all stakeholders in a spirit of partnership
Project development needs genuine values, not just assets
This is why 6B47 is concentrating its development efforts squarely on mixed-use neighbourhoods that are becoming a focal point for urban living and mobility hubs for both locals and tourists at the same time.
Accordingly, our properties are in line with the ideal of “compact cities”, where existing routes cutting across the cityscape are replaced by a single intelligent thoroughfare. The development projects masterminded by 6B47 Real Estate Investors AG also add significant value to urban infrastructure by attracting cutting-edge retail and hospitality concepts around the base of the properties and creating spaces where people can come together and meet.
Only sustainable projects retain their value
Housing – a rare commodity?
Smart property development results in contemporary living concepts
Property development projects should meet all manner of different requirements for modern living concepts (such as work-related mobility) in terms of their fitout, architecture and utilization options.
In concrete terms, for example: someone who is away from home from Monday to Friday for work is unlikely to need a massive high-end kitchen in a one-bedroom apartment. In this case, infrastructure that included a range of shops and leisure facilities, or perhaps even a small balcony, might be particularly important. In an ideal scenario, the project developer will also benefit financially from offering users precisely these options. This is where a property developer needs to demonstrate creativity and expertise in order to craft contemporary spaces for users to live in that are adapted to their needs and will prove their worth over the long term thanks to their flexible design.
Where social engagement meets support of the arts
Besides this tangible emergency aid measure and other sponsorship arrangements, we also set great store by providing a space for the art wherever possible, Such as in the form of temporary exhibitions within our development projects. For instance, we have already collaborated on several occasions with the Viennese artist Martin Grandits, including with a pop-up studio in the “Althan Quarter” in 2021.
6B47 supports the following initiatives
Get a hearing
6B47 Real Estate Investors AG supports the “Get a hearing” organisation, which devotes itself to the needs of children with hearing loss (www.getahearing.com). The company is the principal sponsor of its annual charity concert to raise funds for hearing aids for children who urgently need them but who cannot get the costs covered by health insurance. 6B47 also provides staff to help organise the concert.
Jugend am Werk
6B47 commissions “Jugend am Werk” (“Young People at Work”) to carry out various manual tasks such as putting together or packaging free gifts for trade fairs. Among other things, the “Jugend am Werk” charity gives people with a disability the opportunity to do worthwhile work at sheltered-employment workshops and thereby aid their integration into the world of work.
SOS Kinderdorf - sponsoring a home
6B47 Real Estate Investors AG sponsors a home in the Seestadt Aspern neighbourhood of Vienna for a group of nine children aged between six and fourteen. The children have a temporary home and are given round-the-clock support by trained teachers. Their biological parents, siblings and other caregivers are actively involved in their care in an active, respectful manner.
6B47 not only creates spaces for people to live in. We are proud to support Hektar Nektar’s “Projekt 2028” and thereby play an important role in helping to preserve habitats for bees. Sustainability is key to everything we do day in, day out, and this underlying principle is also reflected in the projects that we sponsor.
TU Wien and Stanford University
6B47 has partnered with TU Wien and Stanford University for the Real Estate Innovation Challenge. Education and research have to be supported and funded if people are to keep on coming up with innovative projects. This was why 6B47 joined forces with TU Wien and Stanford University in the Real Estate Innovation Challenge in order to study innovations in the property industry. In 2023, the three partners are working on a project entitled “ESG in practice – what are the important KPIs for tenants and shareholders?” 6B47 has already taken part in a number of workshops and made some of its properties available to the students from the US and Austria to aid their research.
