GEG – Grundstücksentwicklung Klinikum Bremen-Mitte GmbH & Co. KG

In July 2016, Grundstücksentwicklung Klinikum Bremen-Mitte (GEG) fired the starting shot to launch the selling procedure for the first plot of land in the ‘New Hulsberg Quarter’. A new health centre with approx. 5,000 sqm gross floor area is to be built here on a plot measuring approx. 1,900 sqm, right beside what is now the main entrance to the Klinikum Bremen-Mitte hospital (KBM). In Q1/2017, a buyer will be awarded the sale, while parallel to that, the development plan for the quarter as a whole, covering approx. 14 hectares, will reach maturity and approval. Marketing of the various plots of land will then go into a higher gear. In Q3/2017, two further plots will be put up for sale for housing construction. 
The ‘New Hulsberg Quarter’ is Bremen’s biggest inner-city conversion area. By the time the KBM has moved into its new hospital building in 2019, approximately 14 hectares of land will be available for redevelopment as a residential quarter. Expectations are that, by the mid-2020s, about 1,000 residential units will have been built and that numerous existing buildings will be put to new and different uses. The project involves a volume of approx. 200,000 sqm gross floor area that will be developed by private investors.
