Builder from Braunschweig

“Wohnen am Jakobsgraben” is the name of the project that customer Manolito Meyer of HMS Bauinvest 32/34 GmbH in Braunschweig and architect Nicolai Thiele presented on Wednesday to the members of the urban development committee. These are the areas of the former cardboard box factory and the waste behind it, which could be purchased by private individuals.

The last state-owned company (VEB) in Brandenburg disappears and around 100 apartments are built instead of the cardboard factory on Bauhofstraße.

The city adds a piece of land

A total of 6,290 square meters was originally purchased. Multi-story residential buildings were to be built along the existing provisional road. However, the layout of the plots was such that there would be a shift between the buildings. The collapse of the new road was also unfavorable. The builder acquired another 1,170 square meters from the city and thus has a total area of ​​almost 7,500 square meters, of which exactly half will be built.

Apartments of various sizes

“This is a preliminary design and the aim is to create a mix of flats ranging in size from 55 to 112 square meters. Ultimately, there may be around 100 apartments, ”says architect Thiele. Along the axis to the bridge, also at the rear, an articulated shape of several individual houses is created. The ends are “closed” creating a green inner courtyard with numerous path connections.

Living courtyard

“The design of the building should result in a vertical accentuation of the city’s silhouette, which will allow a rich architectural image and at the same time a diverse range of different types of apartments,” says Thiele. “Balconies, loggias and terraces will connect the apartments with an inner courtyard and contribute to a living community.”

This is what the new quarter could look like in advance.

This is what the new quarter could look like in advance.

In order to enliven the neighboring square on Jakobsgraben, a solitary commercial building is planned on the ground floor as a transition between public and built-up space. All houses stand on a half-flooded “underground garage” storey, above which there are three storeys. The individual building on Graben has four floors, with a quiet commercial space on the ground floor.

Little shops on Bauhofstrasse

“A Meyer customer can also envision small shops, such as a bakery or a kiosk, being built along Bauhofstraße, for example, to contribute to the recovery.”

The issue of sustainable development is also of great importance. Environmentally friendly building materials should be used, as well as reused materials. The roof surfaces are intensely green and equipped with photovoltaic systems. The electricity generated is stored centrally in a battery system and used to operate technical systems such as ventilation systems, heat pumps, lighting, potable water heating, as well as e-bikes and e-cars. The apartments are heated with air / water heat pumps, which do not require accumulation installations.

More life in the neighborhood

Mayor Michael Müller (non-party) praised: “The project will be another important impetus for the development of the Jakobsgraben district. I am particularly pleased that after we launched the “Jakobsbrücke” almost a year and a half ago, it has breathed even more life into the district. And the location speaks for itself: at Jakobsgraben, a kindergarten in front of the door, shopping around the corner, in the city center, and the tram will take you to the main train station in no time. City life and life at its best ”.

Years of work, but successful

Success has many fathers. Free voter city councilor Norbert Langerwisch has long been on the way to getting good use of the fallow lands. “When I see a project like this, I can only say that the years of work have paid off. I like it in every way and it is in line with my motto that photovoltaics should be on rooftops, not green spaces. “

The builder knows the city well

Together with the Berlin real estate seller Ernst Ehrenkönig, Meyer was convinced to become involved in Brandenburg an der Havel. The client is even planning further projects in Havelstadt. Which is ultimately not completely unknown to him. For example, with Brimmo GmbH, he has already built a residential and service building with the main tenant, Barmer, on Sankt-Annen-Straße.
