A new quarter is evolving. In the middle in and for Leipzig.
Actors-Constellation of the project
In 2011 an open space and urban competition for the „Stadtraum Bayerischer Bahnhof” was conducted. The condition was to develop a sustainable, urban and open space concept, which is the foundation for further development steps (master planning, urban land-use planning). The special focus has become the idea of a district park, which is the foundation for the area development. The architects Wessendorf Architektur Städtebau and Atelier Loidl Landschaftsarchitekten won the competition. Based on their concept, further development of the area started.
For the implementation of development in the urban room Bayerischer Bahnhof there are common planning goals. Due to the ownership structure, the city of Leipzig is negotiating with the two project sponsors Stadtbau AG und der BUWOG Bauträger GmbH.
