At Wilhelmsburg, buildings with a special design and conceptual quality are being constructed that set new standards in urban development.

Now, additional plots at Neuenfelder Straße will be developed. Together with Hamburg’s municipal real estate management and real property (LIG), IBA Hamburg has concluded a call for tender, with PRIMUS / KerVita and steg/Holger Cassens contracted for the construction project. The three plots are located right next to the State Ministry for Urban Development and the Environment in the triangle of Drateln- and Neuenfelder Straße and form a link to the IBA project of Dratelnstraße, currently in competition.

A total of 400 flats and student apartments will be built in the next two years. Construction is scheduled to start in summer 2016.
