City of Bergisch Gladbach adopts decision on development plan “Wohnen an der Strunde”

The nationwide developer of ecologically and energetically forward-looking real estate CG Elementum AG has reached an important milestone for the "Wohnen an der Strunde" project in Bergisch Gladbach.

On June 8, 2022, the City Council passed the necessary resolution on the preparation of the revision and extension of the development plan for the site of the former Wachendorff paper mill. The B-Plan is to be drawn up in an accelerated procedure in accordance with §13a BauGB. 

With the “Wohnen an der Strunde” project in Bergisch Gladbach’s western district of Gronau, CG Elementum is planning the development of a lively and mixed urban quarter. On a total gross floor area of around 66,000 m², offers for senior living, a daycare center, an elementary school as well as commercial and residential areas will be created. Historic industrial buildings and energy-efficient new buildings will then complement each other there. 

“With the adoption of the zoning resolution, we have reached a milestone and can begin to profitably implement our sustainability concept for the site,” explains Marcus Zischg, member of the Management Board (CTO, CSO) of CG Elementum and adds: “In addition to the use of sustainable materials for the building structure, an almost CO2-free energy supply is planned for the new buildings. To this end, photovoltaic surfaces totaling around 18,500 m² are to be installed on the roofs of the buildings, among other things.” 

The preliminary landscaping work and the demolition of the first buildings will begin before the end of summer 2022. In the coming year 2023, the existing buildings will be revitalized, while construction is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2023 on the north and east sites and in the winter of 2023 on the south and west sites. The first tenants and users are scheduled to move in during the winter of 2025/2026.
