METRO Campus of the future
We are responding to worldwide rapid urban growth by optimally and sustainably integrating our locations into the cities of tomorrow – with concepts that provide innovative solutions in response to demographic transitions along with changing environmental conditions, work surroundings and lifestyles. In a world with increasingly flexible ways of living, we provide spaces where people can meet and enjoy life.
We intend to pave the way for these approaches with an open urban design competition. Our basic idea is to use the urban restructuring of the METRO Campus area to create a diversified and lively urban district with an attractive mix of innovative living and working space. It will be a city within the city, in the heart of the Düsseldorf metropolitan region, with the international headquarters of METRO AG right at its centre. This will feature a sustainable mixture of uses, including the METRO administration, residential uses, retail, restaurants, services and leisure, combined with highly attractive open spaces.
The district is to be predominantly car-free and characterised by well-designed public parks and spaces. This will allow METRO to make a valuable contribution to society and show how economic, ecological and social objectives can all be successfully combined.
