Planning with foresight and civic involvement
Sustainable Urban Development
The „Long-term Plan“ is intended to become Freiburg‘s guideline plan for long-term urban development and the management of its open spaces. It identifies key areas for potential urban development, such as the expansion of residential areas or how to deal with open spaces.
Freiburg has great momentum for growth as an attractive place to live and work. However, the city also faces new challenges with this positive growth. The massive demand for affordable housing requires – beyond inner-city development – the construction of a new residential district for around 10,000 people.
Maintaining a healthy and balanced urban climate is becoming an increasingly important task in times of climate change. This applies especially to the burgeoning City of Freiburg.
The two most recent quarters Rieselfeld and Vauban are well known for their ecological architecture.
