Vienna's first and largest shopping street forms the border between the 6th and 7th municipal districts. Here, the city's first department stores opened and soon became crowd pullers. This IG Immobilien property houses the Thalia flagship store as well as top-of-the-range offices and flats.

In 1904, the landowner Karl Hörander had the architect Ludwig Schwartz build the hotel and residential house "Hotel Palace" level with Zieglergasse. Ten years later, the flats were substantially refurbished and extended. In 1933, the business spaces on the ground floor were converted into a hotel café with gambling halls. However, a short time later, the hotel changed owner. The bombs of the Second World War did not spare the "Hotel Palace" and left a trail of destruction. Huge detonation holes from the first floor right into the roof made a comprehensive refurbishment unavoidable. In 1947, the hotel celebrated its grand reopening.
However, as early as 1954, the Austrian Football Association replaced the hotel with an entirely new building. The representative community centre served as administration and assembly building. In 1986, the Football Association moved towards the Prater and the Ernst-Happel Stadium.
In the building on Mariahilfer Straße 99, IG Immobilien is renting out flats, offices and retail spaces on six floors. Since its renovation in 2001, the building complex is shining in new splendour.
In 2005, the building was given an additional upgrade: part of the loft was converted and turned into four exclusive penthouse flats with a spectacular view across the city. The location on one of Vienna's most vibrant shopping streets deserves a special mention. The building lies in direct proximity to all forms of public transport and convinces with its quality interior.
There is also a city apartment for temporary living available - more information: www.ig-city-apartments.com
