Bye bye bus depot Weidestrasse – a district is being gentrified

For decades the district of Barmbeck-Süd was characterised by the bus depot that added nothing to the attractiveness of the urban landscape. However, there will be an end to this in two years time at the latest. The bus depot is then to be moved to Ohlsdorf.

STEG has already been initiating the actual planning process for some months with preparatory surveys and events. In this context a public information event took place in the Cultural Centre Barmbek Basch, Wohldorfer Strasse 30, 22081 Hamburg on 8th June 2016.

The aim was to also give the citizens a chance to influence the planning processes. At the same time there was also a transparency that had been initiated in advance by individual surveys by various residents’ groups, also land owners. An in-depth planning workshop was subsequently set up in Basch on 12th July.

The minutes of the planning workshop see below (to enlarge/download click on centered title-button).

The realisation of an urban competition is planned for autumn 2016 for the approx. 28,000 metre area. Based on this the actual planning procedure is to start at the beginning of 2017.
