Construction and start-up: topping out ceremony in “Wallhöfe” in Ratingen

There is bad news from Ratingern City right now. So the topping out ceremony at Wallhöfe on Tuesday was of little consolation. Because in addition to housing, the company Tecklenburg from Straelen will also create commercial space here.

Before the ceremony could go on, the problem was, of course, the women’s soccer championship. The German team is finally trained by Martina Voss-Tecklenburg and by then has already reached the semi-finals. “My wife was sometimes referred to as the” contractor’s wife. ” But at the moment I am only “the husband of the national team coach” – admitted Hermann Tecklenburg with a smile. By the way, he flew to London for every match of the German team, so he certainly will not make an exception in the Sunday final.

catering business

The guests found themselves in the “Wallhöfe” complex, where a restaurant will be located in the future. At this point, three small premises for this branch were to be built, but now there is a tenant who wants to use the “big picture”.

Edeka will be at this level too, so there is no doubt that this grocery store also provided catering for the topping out ceremony. The next neighbors will be the lottery and Santander Bank. From Düsseldorfer Platz you will see the Aldi and Woolworth stores.

In his speech, Hermann Tecklenburg praised the “particularly good location” of the “Wallhöfe” project: “Ratingen is alive!” Mayor Klaus Pesch stressed that this building complex will be an enrichment for the city – not only because of the shops, but because city life is also possible here. The gradual decline of the Hertie house, which for a long time prevented any new development at that point, was only a distant memory.

“Exposed location”

This is how Tecklenburg describes the project itself: “The new building district will be built in an exposed location in the city center at the corner of Düsseldorfer Straße Wallstraße and harmoniously integrated into the urban environment in the heart of Ratingen. The open structure of the project forms the urban axis connecting the pedestrianized Düsseldorf Street and the main bus station (ZOB) and will be the new entrance to the old town. Within a few minutes you can walk to the Ratingen shopping streets, the old town and the Market Square, which invites you to linger In the immediate vicinity there are also cultural facilities such as the town hall, city theater, but also schools, kindergartens and the town hall. place, but also invites you to relax. In terms of transport, you are very well connected with the A3, A44 and A52 motorways in all directions. Gen-Mitte with the main bus station (ZOB) is a transfer point in the city center of Ratingen. Düsseldorf is around 20 minutes away by car, underground and S-Bahn.

The building complex consists of a basement and five residential buildings above it. There is a lot of space in the basement and in the first basement for various points of sale. A boulevard leads to the commercial premises on the ground floor. Edeka, Aldi and Woolworth have already established themselves this quarter as part of a large retail space of approximately 5,500 square meters. Parking spaces for commercial use are located on the second basement level.

Parking space in the underground car park

This underground car park can be driven into and out of Düsseldorfer Platz. Each of the five apartment buildings (AE) is accessible via the basement. This allows residential buildings to create their own address and be perceived accordingly. From the east, the quarter borders on the city park with a playground for children. A new municipal underground car park with additional parking spaces is being built under the park (housing estate car park).

The Wallhöfe project brings a new and additional quality of life to Ratingen and is aimed at people who want to feel comfortable in Ratingen and appreciate the short distances in the heart of the city. “
