How will we live in the future? How can we promote social community in the city? These are all questions that we face every day and address with innovative projects and housing options.
The “Assisted Living at Langwassersee” project offers senior citizens a barrier-free flat and social assistance from the Bavarian Red Cross (BRK) of Nuremberg. A total of 150 publicly subsidised flats for senior citizens are available, which are rented out by wbg at the suggestion of the Nuremberg Social Welfare Office. In addition to the rental flats, 86 condominiums suitable for senior citizens were also built (and already sold), which are also attached to the “Assisted Living” complex. The housing complex is located in a quiet, almost traffic-free environment directly at the Langwassersee lake, surrounded by an abundance of green. If you’re interested in assisted living in Langwasser, call the ImmoCenter at 0911/80 04-18 00 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This special housing project has attracted nationwide attention. Behind the Olga project are 11 ladies who had intentionally made the choice to live together in their old age. Their goal is to live independently and self-reliantly for as long as possible. Each in her own barrier-free flat, but still with mutual support and assistance. The ladies approached wbg with this idea and found a receptive ear. After the building in Chemnitzer Straße was included in wbg’s modernisation plan, a suitable property was found for the project. It’s located on the edge of the Nordostbahnhof housing complex in a quiet cul-de-sac lined with trees.
As a further development of the housing project "OLGA" ("Oldies live actively together"), the Plauener Straße housing initiative (WIPS) promotes intergenerational living and brings together single people, married couples and families of different ages. The housing project is located in the residential area near Nuremberg's Nordostbahnhof. The WIPS have about 20 rented flats of approx. 50-110 sqm at their disposal, as well as places for joint activities. The flats are partly financed according to EOF guidelines and partly freely financed.
The model project of the Supreme Building Authority in the Bavarian Ministry of the Interior aimed to provide living space for all generations and for all life circumstances. The ambitious goal of wbg was not only to equip the project to be barrier-free, but also to bring WAL to life. The aim was to create a spirit of cooperation and togetherness in the 41 flats at Dresdner Strasse 7-11. Young and old alike should feel at home there. wbg laid the foundations for social interaction in the design of the outdoor facilities as well as in the community room and the information boards. And with success: Joint music and games evenings, collective excursions, Sunday brunch or yoga classes are on the WAL residents’ agenda.
