The opening of the Bayerische Bahnhof in Leipzig was the inspiration of the metropolitan integration of the former Petersvorstadt. Today this city part is directly bounded by the town centre in the South. The train station was in use for regional transport until 2011. With the commissioning of the city tunnel in December 2013, the former areas of the railway were now available for an appropriate development according to current and modern requirements. The quarter offers an excellent transport connection and is going to become a new urban city part.

Bayerischer Bahnhof Leipzig
The areaPortikus / Bayerischer Platz (subfield 1) gains back its historical cubage. The original and war-damaged arrival hall will be reconstructed based on the existing departure concourse according to monument-preserving aspects. So the original arrival hall will be newly constructed in an adapted form. Later the ensemble will be supplemented through a high point on the side of the Straße des 18. Oktobers. This ensemble will mark the completion of the planning of the Straße des 18. Oktobers.
From there a new district will evolve in the morning middle of Leipzig, about ten walking minutes away from the city centre. This district will be a place to live and work, for leisure and recovery as well as offer a city part park in the central point.
Area (gross building area): about 20.500 m² Beginning of constructions: 2021 A project of Stadtbau AG
