    “We want to reduce the number of secondary locations and turn them into prime sites. That includes creating more pedestrian areas, such as Knochenhauerstrasse and Carl Ronning Strasse.” These are the words of Bremen entrepreneur Kurt Zech, who has been developing successful building projects for 40 years and also owns the Karstadt building. He is planning substantial new investments in the city centre, where he intends to create new arcades and walkways between the department stores surrounding Karstadt. For Karstadt itself, which is under a preservation order, his planned refurbishment includes a green roof and a catered roof-top terrace.

From 2019, up to 800 employees will be working in the much-needed additional office space.

    “It is going to be a sort of gate that you can see through,” is Bremen architect Frank Püffel’s description of his winning entry for the new building planned for Am Wall. The attractive two-storey arcade will run in a straight line to link a premium site on Am Wall with prime city centre locations. The Museum Passage will be wider and brighter than the previous walkway, making it inviting to pedestrians and a more obvious access point to the centre.
