Project description

Reason for planning
In the north of Frankfurt there is an urgent need for sites for a secondary school.Concentrating the two planned sites for the schools in the geographical scope of the new legal zoning plan no. 923 is intended to create synergies between the two schools in the use of communal facilities and make the land available more quickly.

Development area
The development area is in the north of Frankfurt on the southern perimeter of the Nieder-Eschbach district. In the southwest it directly abuts the Bonames district, and in the northeast it borders on the green belt.
In the north and south, the development area is surrounded by housing and in the southeast by the over-ground LRT tracks of the U2 and U9 lines, as well as the road by the name of Auf der Steinern Strasse. There is agricultural land to the northeast and on the other side of the over-ground LRT tracks. To the west there are two parcels of land with allotments. The geographical scope covers approx. 11.3 hectares.


Planning objectives
Since August Jaspert Schule in Bonames and Michael Grzimek Schule in Nieder-Eschbach are no longer able to cater to the need for elementary school places resulting from the ongoing increase in the number of inhabitants and the planned new developments in the vicinity, it has become imperative that an additional elementary school be built. The planned site lies between the two existing schools and for this reason is ideally suited for a new school.
There is likewise a shortfall in high school places in the north of Frankfurt and this urgently requires mitigation. The Gymnasium Nord high school was recently established to this end and has already opened on a provisional site at Muckermannstrasse 1 in the Westhausen district. Its final location will now no longer be, as previously planned, to the south of the rail track and thus within the geographical scope of legal zoning plan no. 516 - Am Eschbachtal - Harheimer Weg, but rather to the north of the rail track in the development area of legal zoning plan no. 923.
The aim behind concentrating the two planned school sites in the geographical scope of legal zoning plan no. 923 is to make the land available more quickly and therefore enable the two schools to be commissioned more swiftly.
Given the on-going pressing demand for housing the intention is to create additional neighborhoods near the schools with accommodation for different sections of the population. There are plans to ensure that 30 % of the envisaged gross surface area is used for subsidized housing. The resulting need for daycare places for children of pre-school age will be met by establishing a childcare center inside the development area.
Access to the development area will be provided by construction of the first section of the continuous peripheral road that forms part of legal zoning plan no 516. The location directly next to the planned new U2 and U9 over-ground LRT stop will provide excellent public transport connections for both schools and the remaining area for construction.

Planning progress
The development area previously came within the geographical scope of legal zoning plan no. 516 - Am Eschbachtal - Harheimer Weg.
Resolution 3491 passed by the City Council on December 13, 2018 involved a decision to draw up a legal zoning plan no. 923 – Northwest Auf der Steinern Strasse – that independently covered the area. Legal zoning plan no. 516 will be continued with a correspondingly smaller geographical scope.
For spring 2019 there are plans for early public participation in the planning process; locals will be given an an opportunity to find out about the status of the planning and voice suggestions and concerns.
