Project description

Reason for planning
The objective of establishing the development plan is to realign the boundaries on the town’s edge north of the “Neuer Friedhof” cemetery and obtain planning permission for a general residential zone. Since we are expecting Frankfurt’s population to continue to increase over the coming years, the development plan has been formulated to stay abreast of the growing demand for residential space in the metropolitan area.

Development district
The “Südlich Am Riedsteg” development zone is located in Frankfurt’s Nieder-Erlenbach district to the north of the city. Spanning an area of some 6.9 hectares, the zone in question is situated vis-à-vis “Am Fuchsloch” commercial estate.

The spatial ambit is bounded by “Alt-Erlenbach” street in the west, “Am Riedsteg” country lane in the north, an allotment site with “Mühlweg” country lane in the east and “Neuer Friedhof” cemetery in the south. A small strip of land that was formerly part of the cemetery has been included in the ambit of the new zone.

Planning objectives
In the residential estate the focus will be on constructing both detached family homes alongside multi-storey apartment blocks. This mix is intended to offer different groups of the population different types of housing. To cover the urgent need for affordable housing, 30% of the total space is designated for publicly subsidized housing. Moreover, areas have been set aside for communal or cooperative housing projects. Since the district of Nieder-Erlenbach does not yet have a sports hall of its own and this is urgently needed for local clubs to train, a sports hall will be included in the planning. The planned sports hall will be erected in combination with a children’s daycare facility in one and the same building, with the childcare center being located on the ground floor.
