First tenants move into DC Tower

First residents move into Austria's highest tower

A cosmetic surgery, a rooftop bar and a restaurant are among the first tenants of the highest building in Austria, the DC Tower by the Danube river in Vienna.

The space in the tower is already 50% full of tenants and is expected to reach 95% full within two years.

The building from architect Dominique Perrault is 250 metres and 60 floors high with 93,600 square metres available for rent in total. High up near the top, the 52nd floor in a 300 square metre space is now home to cosmetic surgery run by surgeon Artur Worseg who admits that 'vanity' was one of the reasons why he was keen to secure a space in the futuristic looking building.

Although there is no surgery scheduled to take place in the building yet Worseg is hoping the flashy location will attract wealthy visitors from Russia and the Middle East.

The building includes high tech lifts where touch screens and a computerised voice direct you to the correct life for your visit. Once inside, it takes you straight there without the need to press any buttons.

The rooftop bar and restaurant will open to customers in February.
