Partial reallocation plan for the Greenville project in Karlsruhe comes into force

• Construction activities can continue with immediate effect once it comes into force
• The aim is to increase the quota for subsidised housing by up to 40 per cent
• CO2-neutral management of the entire site planned

The nationwide company CG Elementum AG, which specialises in sustainable construction, can now continue with the development of the Greenville project in Karlsruhe’s Nordstadt district. The prerequisite for this is the partial reallocation plan, which is now legally valid. Originally, the partial reallocation plan was due to come into force in spring 2023. This delay was caused by objections in the development plan procedure.

“We are delighted to be able to press ahead with the Greenville project. In doing so, we are making an important contribution to providing necessary living space. The aim is to manage the neighbourhood in a CO2-neutral way,” says Ulf Graichen, CEO/CDO of CG Elementum AG.

Das Bebauungsplanverfahren ist im Frühjahr 2023 (Rechtskraft Satzungsbeschluss B-Plan war der 16.12.2022) eThe development plan procedure was successfully completed in spring 2023 (legal validity of the resolution on the development plan was 16 December 2022). This is a prerequisite for submitting building applications, unless competition procedures are specified as a prerequisite. Corresponding building permits are required before construction activities can begin. The building applications for various construction sites are in progress and are being coordinated with the building regulations office. CG Elementum AG has arranged competition procedures for various construction sites. The competition procedure for construction site 12 was successfully concluded in July 2023. We are now in the planning phase here. In order to start construction, the project partners Gröner Group are also in consultation with the project partner Quarterback, which has acquired building plots 6 and 2.1.

CG Elementum AG had previously completed all planned preparatory construction measures and associated demolition work. No further preparatory construction work is planned at this time and will only be carried out in connection with corresponding construction activities on the individual construction sites. In the meantime, standardisation proceedings have been initiated against the development plan by a third party. Once these proceedings have been clarified or concluded, construction activities can continue. We assume that the City of Karlsruhe will resolve the proceedings in the short term.

A quota for subsidised and affordable housing has been agreed for the project as part of the development plan process. CG Elementum AG is examining whether this proportion can be significantly increased as part of further project development. The aim is to create up to 40 per cent subsidised or affordable housing. Subsidies will be provided as part of the subsidy programmes provided by the federal and state governments for such projects. 

ecobuilding AG, the sister company of our holding company Gröner Group AG, has been commissioned to present an energy concept for the site. The aim is to ensure CO2-neutral management of the entire site and thus realise a sustainable project development. Here, too, recourse will be made to funding within the framework of the applicable KfW programmes.
