The nationwide developer of residential and commercial real estate CG Elementum AG has ceremoniously placed the topping-out wreath for an apartment building at Limburger Straße 34-36 in Leipzig in the presence of the builders involved. The building complex is one of numerous sub-projects within the ecobuilding district development “Plagwitzer Höfe”.
In the 6-storey building with 105 rental flats and 6,624 m² of total rental space, two- to four-room flats with living areas between 40 and 105 m² are being built. All flats are equipped with a balcony, loggia or terrace. The building is connected to a communal green space in the inner courtyard. In addition, 79 underground parking spaces will be provided, ten of which are electrified. Completion is planned for summer 2024.
The apartment building is CG Elementum’s pilot project using precast concrete elements. The construction system, which is manufactured according to industry standard 4.0, provides greater planning reliability and a reduction in work steps. This will realise great savings potentials.
“We are delighted to have reached another milestone here in the Plagwitzer Höfe quarter. This topping-out ceremony is for the first building that we are constructing predominantly with precast concrete elements,” said Ulf Graichen, CEO of CG Elementum AG, on the sidelines of the topping-out ceremony. “This construction method not only saves us time and resources, but also sets standards for sustainable building.”
One of CG Elementum AG’s core competencies is the sustainable development of real estate and entire neighbourhoods with the best possible reduction of CO2 emissions. To achieve this, the company relies on various measures in planning, construction and operation with its ecobuilding product. These include the preservation and conversion of derelict buildings, the realisation of innovative neighbourhood concepts and the implementation of intelligent energy solutions. CG Elementum was quick to implement a sustainable energy supply with renewable energies in the Plagwitzer Höfe and integrated Leipzig’s largest photovoltaic system there, which is being successively expanded.
Only about three kilometres west of Leipzig’s city centre, the Plagwitzer Höfe are located in the urban district of Plagwitz, which has developed into a trendy quarter in Leipzig in recent years. Since 2007, a large number of modern new and old buildings have been developed and redeveloped here in contiguous areas. This has already provided more than 80,000 m² of residential and commercial space.
