The innovative St. Marx district is the home of the Vienna Biocenter (VBC), which was established in the late 80’s. Since then, the VBC continues to expand and to offer flexible offices and laboratory units that set new standards for contemporary workspaces. The 90,000 m2 of modern offices and lab facilities for life sciences research include academic and industrial research institutes such as the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP), the Institute of Molecular Biotechnology (IMBA), the Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology (GMI), the University of Applied Sciences - Department Molecular Biotechnology (FH Campus Wien), and the Max F. Perutz Laboratories (MFPL), a joint venture of the University of Vienna and the Medical University of Vienna. In addition, the VBC is a hot spot for enterprises in the field of life sciences and science communication.
A unique location, the VBC harmonises perfectly with this recently revitalised area of the city, formerly Vienna’s main cattlemarket and abattoir. The wider site features the heritage-listed Stiertor (Bulls' Gate) and livestock auction hall and the Campus Child Care Facility that is run by the Wiener Kinderfreunde. The "Media Quarter Marx", MQM for short, is located to the south east of the stiertor. The list of companies based at MQM reads like a who’s who of Vienna’s creative industries. To the north of Viehmarktgasse is the "Karree St. Marx" where 450 new apartments will be built between 2008 and 2015. With short walking distances between buildings, an aesthetically appealing and networked design for all external spaces, along with green areas featuring contemporary signage, the MarxBox area provides everything the heart could desire in terms of work, life and leisure.
St. Marx is conveniently located between the historic city centre and Vienna International Airport, both of which are just a short distance away by public transportation. The nearby park connects people, technology and science while offering visitors a place to retreat - and perhaps even trigger new ideas for research projects.
