The Copa Cagrana Quai on the Danube Island presents a fantastic opportunity for the creation of an important piece of the urban realm in Vienna. The adjacency to the UN City and the new DC towers and the area of dense urban structure surrounding it, plus the new desirability of residential quarters along the river, and the fantastic level of accessibility which is provided by public transport, suggests that this could become one of the most significant riverfront locations in Vienna in the future. Unfortunately, the opportunity seems to have been endangered by the haphazard nature of the ongoing developments which do not seem to have been properly coordinated to take advantage of this opportunity.
