Project description

Reason for planning
The City of Frankfurt has launched the 2011 Residential Land Development Program (RLDP) in a bid to make sufficient land available for building purposes and thus meet the growing need for residential space in Frankfurt. The most recent version (Resolution of the City Council of January 27, 2012, B 36) includes an approx. 8.8-hectare site north of Dieburger Strasse in the south of Fechenheim, which has potential for some 200 dwellings.
Only the few remaining free plots of land along Dieburger Strasse can be developed under existing building laws (in accordance with section 34 BauGB). No formal building law exists covering the properties on the rear, however, meaning that an integral urban planning concept and development plan are first required.

Development district
The ambit of development plan no. 698 – North of Dieburger Strasse is located in Frankfurt’s Fechenheim district north of the bend in the River Main and comprises a site of approx. 8.8 hectares. The southern perimeter is Dieburger Strasse. In the northwest the site borders on the commercial properties on Ferdinand Porsche Strasse before it follows the extension of Konstanzer Strasse (ambit of development plan no. 873 – in preparation). Adjacent in the northeast is the allotment garden complex of KGV Mainperle e.V. (development plan no. 605) and the existing structures in Fechenheim town center.

Planning objectives
Development plan no. 698 aims to establish the legal foundations for the due development of a new residential and mixed-use area north of Dieburger Strasse. The objective: The ensuing construction and utilization structure will emulate the existing buildings and surroundings to ensure a harmonious side-by-side of residential and commercial zones.
In addition, the idea is to secure the planning basis for the section of the Fechenheim greenbelt close to the residential area as an element linking the bend in the Main to the Seckbacher Ried
. On this basis, it will be possible to upgrade the area in line with the urban development concept innate in Grünzug Fechenheim (2010).

Project progress
The development plan proposal was inspired by an urban design concept drawn up by the planners at BS+, which forms the basis for the overall plan (ill. 1 and 2). A structuring concept which also forms part of the resolution to establish the development plan proper was developed. The City Council adopted the relevant resolution on June 26, 2014. 
The first public hearing took place in accordance with section 3 (1) 
BauGB on April 15, 2013 as part of the meeting of Local Consultative Council 11.

Early consultation with the public authorities and other public interest parties in accordance with section 4 (1)  BauGB took place from June 26, 2013 to July 26, 2013. The development plan proposal is currently being advanced in consideration of the suggestions made by citizens and authorities and will subsequently be prepared for public disclosure.
