As a city, Mönchengladbach is like a living organism. With character and charm, with strengths and weaknesses, just like the people who live here. And it is constantly changing: old things fade and make way for the new. EWMG provides support for the development of Mönchengladbach, revitalises unused areas and makes them attractive for investors. A classic example is the Nordpark. EWMG has developed this 160-hectare area for living and working, for sports and leisure activities. With the Borussia-Park, the HockeyPark, the extensively restored early 20th-century buildings of the former Erziehungsanstalt (a residential home for young people) and many well-known companies, the Nordpark is one of Mönchengladbach’s major flagships.
And the success story continues. Not only in the Nordpark. Throughout the city area, living and working spaces are being created – as promised by the urban development strategy mg+ Wachsende Stadt. The inner-city projects Maria Hilf terraces and Seestadt mg+ are giving Mönchengladbach a new face: vibrant, future-oriented and diverse.
That is EWMG’s mission.
New living and working spaces
EWMG provides the city administration with competent support for the development of residential and business areas. The company develops utilization concepts and framework plans. It purchases and develops land, builds roads, and establishes connections to the power, water and wastewater systems. Specialists from EWMG provide support for marketing developed residential building plots, keep in touch with investors and guide project owners through the entire construction phase. Business properties are marketed by WFMG, the city’s business development company.
Giving people a home
It is by no means easy to find your way in life and everyone needs a place where they can put down roots. EWMG can provide support: in its own name and also on behalf of the city administration, the company sells land to private and business customers – commission-free. EWMG also offers a portfolio of attractive properties for all generations and income brackets.
Laying the foundations for special properties
The city administration and EWMG cooperate for the planning of special properties. EWMG purchases land for the realisation of public-sector projects, creates new ideas for development and utilization, and establishes a basis for subsequent building rights. Examples include the SparkassenPark or the Minto shopping centre which has a sales area of about 26,000 square metres and was chosen as Germany’s most beautiful shopping centre in the autumn of 2016.
