Quartiersentwicklung am Weberplatz in Essen

As part of sustainable urban development, the area located in the redevelopment area was to be redesigned in terms of urban planning and quality uses and surrounding areas were to be developed. 

The Rottstraße neighborhood is located in the northern city center of Essen in the area of tension between the pedestrian zone to the east and south, the shopping center at Limbecker Platz to the west and the university to the north. 

The neighborhood forms a developmental bridgehead to the new urban development areas in the northern part of the city and the former railroad facilities; the pedestrian zone is only one block away from the area in each direction.
