City life is both hectic and handy. The shopping, cultural and recreational opportunities are many, while the minutes it takes to reach them are few. Even still, many who live in cities dream of a quiet life amongst green surroundings. In the Dresden neighbourhood of Friedrichstadt, big-city inhabitants searching for quietude no longer have to choose between the two.

The CG Group’s Weisseritz Gärten project in Cottaer Strasse, combines modern urban flair with green oases of well-being. With 92 residential units, this housing complex consists of three front buildings that blend harmoniously into the older buildings along Cottaer Strasse. Behind these, in the leafy courtyard, lie three summer houses and two townhouse complexes.

The mix of tenants will be as varied as the buildings themselves—flats ranging from 35 m² to 70 m² in size are ideal for singles and couples, while young families will find their perfect home in one of the 3.5- to 5.5-room flats or one of the single-family houses with a garden. A spacious playground in the green courtyard also provides an area for children to run and play.

Friedrichstadt is one of Dresden’s priorities in terms of urban development. Real estate experts see the greatest potential in the area because of its proximity to Dresden’s Old Town, excellent access to public transport and lavishly renovated old buildings. It‘s no wonder then that Friedrichstadt is becoming increasingly popular not only with the locals themselves, but also with newcomers. The Weisseritz Gärten will only further accelerate this positive development.

Property specification - Micro environment / Macro environment


Dresden has approximately 550,000 inhabitants. In terms of population, it is the twelfth largest city in Germany and, just after the slightly more populous city of Leipzig, is the second largest city in the state. As the state capital of Saxony, Dresden is the political and cultural centre as well as the main traffic hub in the metropolitan area of Dresden, which is considered one of the most economically dynamic regions in the Federal Republic.

Within Saxony, Dresden represents an important economic and scientific centre and is home to numerous research institutes (Fraunhofer Society, Max Planck Society, etc.) as well as many well-known companies in the fields of microelectronics, information technology, biotechnology and electrical engineering.

However, the city is also of considerable cultural importance—from 2004 to 2009, it was registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In addition to its numerous art collections, historically significant buildings from a variety of eras count themselves among the city's attractions.

The neighbourhood of Friedrichstadt lies to the west of Dresden's Old Town and the suburb of Wilsdruff—across the former Weisseritz riverbed.

This district is without a doubt the most extraordinary and highly contrasting in Dresden. It has a rich history, valuable historic buildings and the most magnificent fountain in Dresden (the Neptune Fountain), and it is the area where many important architects, scientists, educators and artists did their work. Historic buildings, important history and famous names all characterise the city as much as its time as a location for factories.

Residents of this location benefit from the connections and proximity to the city centre. Nearby federal and access roads also make for easy motor transport.
