ECB coordination office

The ECB´s relocation to the site of the former wholesale market will necessitate comprehensive measures in the vicinity of the new location, too. In view of the complexity of these measures, the considerable number of people involved, and the tight deadlines leading up to the ECB´s planned relocation, an “ECB Coordination Office” was set up and attached to the City’s Planning, Building, Housing and Real Estate Department.

The Coordination Office was established in July 2005. In addition to the existing Urban Planning project team, the Green, Road Construction and Access and Memorial project teams started work in conjunction with the Coordination Office. With the participation of the municipal departments involved the project teams under the management of the relevant department responsible are themselves exclusively responsible for the implementation for a series of measures until the ECB´s relocation.
