Project description

Reason for planning
To offset the growing need for housing, the City of Frankfurt seeks to make sufficient land available for new homes  to be built. In the south of the Fechenheim district, legal zoning plan B 698 “North of Dieburger Strasse” will play a role in this regard, as it provides for land for residential use. The surrounding local recreation facilities and parkland lay ideal foundations for the development of an attractive residential area.
The legal zoning plan “North of Dieburger Strasse” provides the legal basis for the construction of approx. 250 housing units. Of these, 30 percent will be subsidized housing, which will also help meet the current need for rent-supported apartments.

Development area
The development area is in the south of the district of Fechenheim and embracers a total surface area of approx. 9 hectares. In the south it is bordered by Dieburger Strasse and the adjacent buildings along the road. In the northwest the commercial zone will adjoin Ferdinand Porsche Strasse. In the northeast the development area is bordered by the “Mainperle” allotment gardens. With the exception of the buildings along the road (used primarily for residential purposes) and some commercial building to the rear. The area in question will primarily be defined by gardens and green zones.


Planning objectives

The aim of legal zoning plan B 698 – North of Dieburger Strasse is to provide the legal planning basis for the orderly development of a residential area, taking the existing commercial premises into consideration. The envisaged structure of the urban fabric and usages is based on the existing buildings in the zone. The immediate vicinity is also considered in order to guarantee compatibility between housing and commercial uses
The key underlying idea behind the development of the area is to create housing and increase the use of property for residential purposes as a whole. Moreover, the plan is to build a childcare center in the northwest of the area. To ensure a smooth transition to the adjoining “Ferdinand Porsche Strasse” commercial estate, an urban district is being developed in the west with the emphasis on commercial usages. The plan also lays the legal basis for the existence to the north of the Fechenheim green corridor, which provides a link between the bend in the River Main in the south and the “Seckbacker Ried” marshland in the north. Thanks to this enhancement, a local recreation zone for future residents and indeed the entire population of Fechenheim will arise. Furthermore, the legal zoning plan will ensure that the “Mainperle” allotment gardens are legally safeguarded against incursion.

Project progress

In 2013, prior to planning measures, the architectural practice BS+ prepared an urban development proposal for the development area, on the basis of which the general public participated at an early stage (in spring 2013 at the meeting of Local Consultative Council 11), as did the local authorities and public agencies. On June 26, 2014 the City Council subsequently adopted a resolution to draw up legal zoning plan B 698.

On the basis of the urban development proposal the draft of the legal zoning plan was drawn up. It took into account both the findings of several expert opinions and the remarks and suggestions tabled by citizens and the public agencies on the back of their early participation in the process. Public presentation of the planning is currently being prepared.

Given the current structure of the parcels of land in the development area, it is necessary to re-parcel land in accordance with sections 45ff of the German Building Code (BauGB) in order to create meaningfully configured plots of land that can be used for construction purposes.

The City Council has with its resolutions of Aug. 31, 2017, and Aug. 23, 2018, instructed the re-parceling of the land. The re-parceling agency initiated by resolution of Sept. 14, 2018 (announcement in Gazette no. 39 on Sept. 25, 2018) the re-parceling procedure. Once the land use plan comes into force, the re-parceling agency can, after consultation with the owners of the properties, compile the re-parceling plan as the result of the reorganization of the parcels of land.
