John Thompson to redevelop historic German city

  • Comment
Housing regeneration specialist John Thompson & Partners is to masterplan the redevelopment of the historic city of Lübeck in Germany - a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Working in tandem with Copenhagen-based Gehl Architects, the practice - under the new banner JTP Cities - will develop a 'strategic vision and masterplan' for Lübeck's old town.

The project will start with a collaborative planning process including the city authorities, the local community and key stakeholders including Karstadt - Germany's biggest department store.

Lübeck, with a population of 215,000, is the second-largest city is the north-German region of Schleswig-Holstein.

According to JTP Cities, the scheme will 'promote the city's international tourism and retail offer whilst simultaneously accommodating local business and residential needs.'
