Turnkey construction of the “Spöttinger Höfe” and “Am Papierbogen” building sections

In Landsberg am Lech, around 57,000m2 of former industrial land is being converted into a new urban quarter for 1,500 people. Project developer ehret + klein awarded the Munich branch of PORR GmbH & Co. KGaA the contract for the turnkey construction of two of the total of eleven construction phases. In building complex A2, “Spöttinger Höfe”, 36 privately financed and 16 subsidised owner-occupier flats are being built on 6 floors, along with 2 commercial spaces on the ground floor and an underground car park. On construction site A1, “Am Papierbogen”, 92 flats are distributed over 5 floors, of which 51 apartments are permanently available for low-income households and families. The PORR subsidiary pde Integrale Planung GmbH was responsible for the execution planning for architecture and building services.

A prime example of sustainable urban development

The Lady Herkomer footbridge, set to open in the summer of 2021, will allow pedestrians and cyclists to cross over from Landsberg’s idyllic city centre to the other side of the Lech River. Here, where paper and later ploughs were once manufactured, 658 flats, a cultural centre, a 4-star hotel, two daycare centres, and numerous spaces for shops, medical practices, offices, and restaurants have been under construction since the groundbreaking ceremony in 2018.

Sustainability also played a major role in the urban development concept: The new district will be nearly car-free and will have plenty of green spaces. Bus and rail connections as well as car and bike sharing services ensure numerous mobility options.

Flats for all phases of life

The range of flats is versatile and extends from single apartments and family apartments to lofts and townhouses. The floor plans of the “Am Papierbogen” flats are also variable, and the units fit together like building blocks. Thanks to the threshold-free construction, they will be suitable for older people to use without any problems. The Spöttinger Höfe flats are also barrier-free and designed as open floor plans. Modern urban living is implemented to perfection here: a view of the countryside, no street noise, and local supplies for daily household needs.
