Schumacher Quartier will offer more than 5,000 homes for more than 10,000 people, together with the attendant shopping facilities and public amenities. What’s planned is an education campus with two universities as well as sports facilities and youth centers, and six daycare centers in addition. And the best thing about it: All of this is there for everyone as well. Because Schumacher Quartier combines different forms of construction and use.

Schumacher Quartier is designed not only to be socially mixed but also sustainable. It is built using renewable raw materials such as wood. And in addition low-emission recycled materials are utilized, as is also the case with renewable energy sources, rainwater on the sponge-city principle, and environmentally conscious mobility. From the outset we also include species diversity (biodiversity) in terms of both design and construction in our thinking.

Directly next to Schumacher Quartier is the Urban Tech Republic, an innovation park for urban technologies. The green technologies of the future developed and produced here in the Urban Tech Republic will be put to use in Schumacher Quartier.

This creates a neighborhood that is both climate-neutral and climate-resilient. In other words, it takes tomorrow’s climate challenges into account today.

Good for the climate, good for everyone

All of this is good for the climate but also for residents. There will be hardly any traffic, better air quality, low energy costs, and a whole lot of free space besides as 30 hectares surrounding Schumacher Quartier are reserved for public green areas, playgrounds, and city squares. What’s more, it’s located right next to the new, semi-natural recreation area, Tegeler Stadtheide.
