Postareal Böblingen – Böblingen Post Office Site
The Post Office Site in Böblingen is situated at a key location between the train station and the pedestrianised area. At this decisive location at the entry to downtown Böblingen (the ›Unterstadt‹), the site could play a central role in adding value to Böblingen’s town centre. At present the area is used entirely for commercial purposes. With IBA’27, the municipal property company Böblinger Baugesellschaft wants to work together with Böblingen’s urban community to develop a high-density, mixed-use urban component. An open, international urban planning competition will explore architectural possibilities, and the winners should then work together to develop the project at a later stage. The entire process from planning to commissioning will be accompanied by a dialogue with institutions, the town council, business owners and residents.
