The first industrial estate in Austria was established at Vienna-Liesing in 1991, which was followed by the Vienna-West industrial park, the Business Park Vienna on Wienerberg hill, the Concorde Business Park at Schwechat, Lower Austria, further projects at Brunn am Gebirge and at Ennsdorf, "Civitas Nova" at Wiener Neustadt and the concept of a trans-national) industrial park in Gmuend-Cěske Velenice.
