Building permission granted for Schanzäckerstrasse residential development in Nuremberg

The mixed-use, residential-led Schanzäckerstrasse scheme has been granted Building Permission in the German city of Nuremberg.

Chapman Taylor was appointed by BAYIKO (Bayerisches Immobilien Kontor GmbH) to design a five-storey residential and commercial building at Schanzäckerstrasse. The 7,800 m² GFA development will include 55 residential units of between one and four rooms each as well as two commercial units which will create a lively street frontage.

The building consists of three individual “houses“ which are differentiated in the façade by contrasting colours so that the exterior visually complements the prevailing scale of buildings in the wider district.

The site for the new building is located in the city’s attractive Gostenhof district, which borders Nuremberg’s Old Town to the south-west. The district has developed into a trendy district (“GoHo”) since the 1980s due to the arrival of many new pubs and cafés, artists’ studios, small alternative shops and start-ups, and it is now a popular place to live for students and young families.

The building plot currently only includes a one-storey car dealership and will be redensified by the construction of the five-storey residential and commercial building in a way which complements its central location and which closes the gap in the block.

The site sits opposite the Kohlenhof urban development project currently being developed on the former railway tracks, where new office, retail and commercial space and a large public park are being created on 11 hectares of fallow land.

Completion is scheduled for autumn 2022.
