The approx. 4.5 ha large area is to be sold for development. For this purpose, combined urban development and investor competition are being held to seek out a coherent urban development and architectural development and utilization concept, that an investor is ready to enter into purchase negotiations with the owners and, within the event of a positive conclusion to the talks, to develop the location in accordance with the concept.

•Integration of the new development into the prevailing development structure

•Strengthening the residential and commercial function within the vicinity of the central downtown area
