Topping out ceremony IKEA
On Thursday, 26th November 2020, the ceiling above the 6th floor was concreted all day long. 590 m³ of concrete were used, that is about 62 trucks that delivered the concrete that day.
So it is done: the last ceiling has been concreted and the shell of the building is complete. Before Christmas, we are now heading for the finale and in August of next year – 2021 – the completion of the entire building is already expected.
Already in mid-October, the facade lifting platforms were installed and the construction of the building shell began.
Future customers, the neighbourhood and all those who perhaps simply want to enjoy the view in Mariahilf have a lot to look forward to in the new IKEA at Westbahnhof station: the seven-storey furniture store with an all-round green façade not only offers the popular IKEA shopping experience, but also a green terrace accessible to the general public.
