Future for Neue Mitte Oberhausen

FUTURE FOR NEUE MITTE OBERHAUSEN. On behalf of the City of Oberhausen, De Zwarte Hond developed an urban development framework plan for the Neue Mitte Oberhausen. The strategy for the spatial and sustainable development of Oberhausen's New Centre is based on three core ideas: a green-blue park landscape which is primarily reserved for cyclists and pedestrians that forms a second site, besides the street, for residential and commercial use; high-quality residential and workplace-related public transport; dense and mixed-use neighbourhoods that follow the principle of the 15-minute city in which all everyday journeys can be made in less than 15 minutes.

The urban development framework plan is currently being analysed at the local political level. Read more in this recently published article by WAZ (in German).
