Second digital public participation from August 31, 2021

What will become of the property on Blanckertzstrasse in Düsseldorf Ludenberg? To recap: At the beginning of the project, all interested citizens were able to submit their proposals in categories such as residential concepts, green and open space, or social infrastructure in the two-stage cooperative competition with public participation organized by BPD Immobilienentwicklung GmbH, together with the state capital Düsseldorf and Städtische Wohnungsbau-GmbH Düsseldorf (SWD).

Since August 31, 2021, the second digital citizen participation is being held. After the jury meeting at the end of August, five designs made it to the 2nd stage, which now have to face the ideas and comments of the public again.

On 20.08.2021, the first jury meeting took place in the Alte Schiedehalle at the Böhler site in Düsseldorf. The 22 judges from different fields such as architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, politics and real estate development met to evaluate the 12 submissions of the planning offices. They paid particular attention to:

  • The preservation of the tree population
  • The creation of open and green spaces
  • The traffic development concept
  • The social infrastructure with careful integration into the existing neighborhoods.

The social infrastructure with careful integration into the existing neighborhoods.
After our office had summarized the report of the preliminary examination as procedure supervisor in this competition, a pair consisting of one specialist judge and one procedural judge each examined one of the 12 designs for its quality.

In the end, after a final, joint vote, these five planning teams and their designs made it through to the next round:

  • ASTOC Architects and Planners, Cologne
  • Mronz und Schaefer, Cologne
  • konrath und wennemar architekten ingenieure, Düsseldorf
  • Thomas Schüler Architekten und Stadtplaner, Düsseldorf

Second public participation starts

From August 31, 2021, to September 20, 2021, all interested citizens can once again submit suggestions and ideas and provide them to the planning offices. After all, the planning offices have until the next meeting of the jury in December to incorporate the jury’s recommendations for action and the public’s comments.

Those who would now like to contribute to the second participation phase can do so digitally, but also analogously.


The website features all the designs along with a brief design explanation, and feedback can be left easily and directly.


The final designs can also be found at the construction fence on the competition site on Blanckertzstraße. There they can be viewed and evaluated. If one would like to leave written feedback, one can simply drop it in the mailbox on site, or send it by mail to our address:
