Leipzig’s rail and industrial wasteland will become the most innovative part of the city

With an area of over 20ha, one of the largest inner-city development areas is currently getting ready for the planning phase. Due to its size and proximity to the city centre, the area that was once a Prussian freight yard is now of the utmost relevance to Leipzig’s urban development.

The deed of purchase for the well-connected property was signed, sealed and delivered at the beginning of 2016. The intended revitalisation will transform the unused commercial space into a lively, urban and future-oriented neighbourhood.

The planned mix of residential and cultural usage, small businesses and retail shops, offices, services and restaurants will integrate and maintain the historically significant aspects of the building. In the interest of a cooperative planning approach, Leipzig’s Department of Urban Development and Construction will work closely with a designated collective of workshops to monitor the process: the Design Panel for the City of Leipzig has organised architectural workshops for specific parts of the building area to accompany an urban planning workshop for the entire area.
