|Residential space in sqm||2.130|
In the corner of Melatengürtel / Grüner Weg on the
project property “WEKO“ a residential building with a total of 93
student apartments on four floors and a staggered storey is being
erected on approx. 1,300 sqm. The apartments are between 20-25 sqm and
fully furnished. A planned library, a recreation room, a laundry room as
well as underground parking spaces and parking spaces for bicycles may
not be missing in the everyday life of the students as well.
The development measures will be carried out by Stefan Frey AG, that has meanwhile taken over the shares of Convalor in the project company. After the demolition of vacant halls of the former office furniture factory “WEKO“, the construction has began in 2017 after the building permit has been granted. The apartments are expected to be completed by August 2018 with the objective of letting the students move into their apartment on time for the winter term.
Especially Cologne is one of the German university cities where high school students have a particularly hard time finding an accommodation during their studies. More and more property developers are trying to close this gap with centrally located apartments.
