Quartier Neckarspinnerei – Neckarspinnerei Neighbourhood
The listed site of the former Neckar spinning mill (Neckarspinnerei) belonging to textiles firm Otto in Wendlingen-Unterbohingen is to be developed into an futureproof, mixed-use neighbourhood. Even when the buildings were first built in 1861, there was a strong emphasis on marrying work life with home life. This is now to be reinterpreted with the redesign.
The valuable group of buildings are high density yet almost rural structures. This basis provides a range of possibilities for new and open mixed use. The site is to be further densified and upgraded by extending existing buildings and adding modern conversions. The banks of the Neckar River run along the entire site, also ensuring a pleasant location.
The conversion process for the Neckar spinning mill is to receive international support, from the idea to the realisation phase. There are plans for creatives, planners and entrepreneurs to work together with the people in the region to develop the neighbourhood. In addition to the clever reuse of the existing buildings and open spaces, there are plans to have good public transport links and an extensive network of cycling and pedestrian routes.
