Project description

Legal Zoning Plan no. 880 – Friedberger Landstrasse / South of Wasserpark – is currently dormant. With the Coalition Agreement “2021 – 2026 – Shaping a new Frankfurt” changed planning objectives were envisaged for the project area, which have to be approved by new resolution of the City Council. The process is still ongoing.

Reason for planning 
On the basis of resolution 9550 adopted by the City Council on February 24, 2011, the area where Bornhein, Seckbach and the “Ernst May district” intersect was subject to a preliminary study with a view to the possible implementation of an urban development measure.
As the interim findings of the study, the area in question was as per resolution 1053 adopted on February 23, 2017 formally removed the area from the scope of application of the preliminary investigations and the legal zoning planning procedure no. 880 – Friedberger Landstrasse / South of Wasserpark then launched.
Under the original planning approach, a reorganization of the existing plots of land would have been necessary in order to realize the plans. As a result, in January 2021, a reallocation process was initiated. Like the legal zoning plan, this process is likewise currently dormant.

Planning area
The geographical scope of the legal zoning plan to be compiled, no. 880 – Friedberger Landstrasse / South of Wasserpark – lies in Frankfurt’s Nordend district and comprises an area of around 16.6 hectares. The planning area is bordered to the west by Friedberger Landstrasse, in the north by Wasserpark and in the east by private areas of greenery. The southern fringe of the land is bordered by the building plots located to the north of Münzenberger Strasse and Butzbacher Strasse.

Planning objectives
In 2017, an urban development and landscape planning competition was staged for the area under planning and involved intensive civic participation. In keeping with the urban density of Frankfurt’s Nordend district, defined as it is by the Wilhelmine era, a quarter with perimeter blocks with multi-story structures boasting up to 1,500 residential units and three strips of greenery was plannedary school with at least four parallel classes and a secondary school are also to be built.
