URBAN DEVELOPMENT: NEW URBAN QUARTER IN LANDSBERG AM LECH

The Am Papierbach urban development

In Landsberg am Lech, we are currently breathing new life into a former industrial site where paper was once made, and where a plow factory was operated from 1891 to 2011. We are creating an entire new urban development in the immediate vicinity of one of Bavaria's most beautiful city centers. It will enable the two parts of the city, situated on opposite sides of the Lech River, to grow even closer together and further enhance the already high quality of life.

From a former industrial site to a place worth living

Apartments, offices, retail spaces, restaurants, cafes and bars, and space for childcare and cultural facilities will be built on the former production site's approximately 57,000 square meters. A total of 14 competitions have been launched in this context, including an urban planning ideas competition in 2015 and, since 2016, a number of architectural competitions for the individual lots in which leading international architecture firms have taken part.

Our Am Papierbach project on the west bank of the Lech River, with its symbolic bridge across the Lech, will enable the western part of the city and the eastern part, including the historical part of town, to grow together. The urban development will not only establish a link between the two parts of the city but also between tradition and modernity. Demolition work began in the middle of 2017. The Karl Schrem Building will remain intact and serve as a visible testament to the former plow factory, thus evoking the history of the site.

„The fact that today a new urban development is being created in close proximity to the historical part of the town is a particularly pleasing development.“

Mathias Neuner, Lord Mayor of Landsberg am Lech

Visionary urban development

ehret+klein is making a contribution to realizing the vision of a "Model City Landsberg 2025" with its urban development. The project incorporates a resource-conserving energy concept, a mobility concept with e-car sharing and bike sharing in concert with a reduction in private car traffic, and parking space management.
"The fact that today a new urban development is being created in close proximity to the historical part of the town is a particularly pleasing development," says Mathias Neuner, Lord Mayor of Landsberg am Lech.
