A new flagship store for Primark

City Plaza is the centrepiece of a large urban redevelopment project which links Wuppertal’s railway station to the town centre. In order to create a seamless and pedestrian-friendly link, a highway had to be lowered by 6m, and a new bridge built, flanked on both sides by retail pavilions. City Plaza marks the rail gateway to Wuppertal’s city centre, forming part of an assembly of impressive historical buildings which define the remodelled square in front of the railway station.

Creative curved façade design

City Plaza’s curved facade is clad with brass panels which alternate with the glass of the curtain wall, lifting the area's look and feel alongside major improvements to the surrounding public realm.

Chapman Taylor’s Düsseldorf studio, together with the investor, Signature Capital, won a prestigious German polis award for City Plaza in the regenerated town centres category in 2016.
