Emmendinger Plan

Emmendinger Plan

The concept study with the working title “Emmendinger Plan” deals with the upgrading and further development of the WEHRLE-WERK AG company premises around the existing factory halls. In addition to the new construction of the logistics center to further develop the company processes and the outdoor area, current plans also include opening up the factory premises to the city, including green spaces and buildings, in order to accommodate cultural and social institutions. In the further development and implementation of the project, we always seek close and transparent coordination with the town of Emmendingen, any property owners involved and local residents, taking into account the legitimate interests of all parties involved.

Project goals

With the “Emmendinger Plan” concept study, we want to make it possible to experience the interconnected history of the company and the town.

  • Experience the interconnected history of the company and the city
  • Integration of the former Wehrle canteen into a new, functional development
  • Design enhancement of the area through appropriate permeability of the development
  • Meeting opportunities for people living and working here
  • Coexistence of industry, trade, social facilities, gastronomy and housing
  • Ecological upgrading of the area
  • Retention of the truck exit to Hochburgerstraße
  • Pedestrian connection to Theodor-Ludwig-Straße, the market square and Markgrafenstraße

News: The “Kulturhof” in the WEHRLE Quarter

The “Kulturhof” in the WEHRLE quarter is a result of the Emmendinger Plan concept study. The term “Kulturhof” refers to the section of the WEHRLE Quarter located behind the former Krauss department store. With an open, small-scale development, the latest results of the urban climate plan are taken into account and the permeability of the site is created. The “Kulturhof” implementation project includes a childcare facility, a restaurant with a conference center, a private music school and a lounge club.

    WEHRLE-WERK AG is the owner of the parking garage site area, but not of the parking garage itself. Furthermore, it is not involved in the operation of the parking garage.

    The leasehold contract exists between WEHRLE-WERK AG and Kaufhaus Krauss GmbH & Co. KG and the town of Emmendingen (1987-2054).

    The town of Emmendingen undertook to meet the obligations arising from the leasehold contract in the event of the department store's insolvency. This included the operation and maintenance of the parking garage.
