PORR builds "Schlossquartier" in Kiel

In mid-December 2015, the property development company Norddeutsche Grundstücksentwicklungs-gesellschaft commissioned Porr Deutschland GmbH, carried out equally by the large scale civil engineering projects department of Frankfurt and Vienna, to construct 82 rental flats and 131 owner-occupied flats in an exquisite location in the city of Kiel. The contract covers the turnkey construction of the residential buildings as well as the excavation pit and the execution planning. The volume of the order is around 40 million euros. 

The plot is located between the historic Schlossstraße (“Castle Street”), Kiel Castle and St. Nikolai’s church. 6 residential buildings, with 6-7 storeys each including a stepped storey, will enhance the attractiveness of Kiel city centre and are to be constructed on the plot, which is around 7,560.m2 in size. Offices and commercial units are planned for the ground floor. 

The group of buildings with a gross floor space of approx. 27,740 m2 will have an underground car park of about 6,467 m2 in size, providing 185 parking spaces. 

The facing chosen for the interlinked building, comprising 2 buildings designated for rental flats and 3 for owner-occupied flats, makes it blend in harmoniously with its surroundings in the old town of Kiel. The solitary tower at Schlossplatz (“Castle Square”) offers space for a further 36 generously sized owner-occupied flats. In addition, the flats will have balconies/loggias or patios on the ground floor or rooftop terraces on the stepped storeys, which significantly enhance living quality.
As far as sustainability is concerned, the residential buildings will be built in accordance with the energy standard Efficiency House 70. In addition, the building project will fulfil the LEED gold certification requirements (Leed Core Shell 2009 V3 – Group Certification on Campus).  

The project is planned for completion by the end of November 2017.
