Since 2018, LWB has been sprucing up its properties in Leipzig-Grünau. In total, the municipal company has approximately 3,400 apartments in Leipzig’s newest district.
At this stage, among other things, the addition of the new balcony parapets is being prepared. To date, nothing stands in the way of the planned completion in December 2021. Despite Coronavirus-related protection measures, the various building professions have made good progress.
The high-rise building with a total of 115 apartments is a major construction site, both inside and out. In addition to the renovation work, 23 vacant apartments are being converted. The building primarily consists of small apartments. These are also popular with senior citizens because of the care facilities situated close to home.
The house is completely encased. Renovation work is now in full swing on both the exterior and interior.
The “role model” for the refurbishment project is the “Punkthochhaus” high-rise building at Titaniaweg 5. Extensive work is scheduled until the end of 2021. At the beginning of the year, among other things, the old balcony parapets were removed, and the balcony doors were blocked off with a panel due to safety reasons.
November 2020: renovation work drawing to an end
Despite a slight delay caused by the corona pandemic, our renovation work should be completed as scheduled by the end of the year. This progress is due to our strong cooperation with the construction companies and our tenants, who have shown a great deal of understanding for the unavoidable interference. Once the work has been completed in the 93 apartments and two commercial units, the final renovation stage will involve painting work in the corridors, stairs and cellar areas, as well as construction work at the entrance and the development of an access road for the fire brigade.
June 2020: the redevelopment work is being carried out according to schedule.
The redevelopment work in Titaniaweg 5 is being carried out according to schedule. What’s more, this is all being done in spite of the difficulties that the Corona pandemic has brought with it. The work is due to be finished by the end of 2020. Steps are being taken in the 93 flats present in the building as well as on and around the building. This ranges from redevelopment of the façade and the balconies, equipping them with entry points that are flush to the floor right up to insulation and roofing work. The windows are also being replaced, the heating is being optimized and the wiring is being replaced.
The standalone high-rise building contains bedsits and flats with up to three rooms that are equipped with a balcony; they range from 34 to 83 square metres in size. The ground floor houses space for offices and doctor’s practices.
