About the LWB

Introducing the LWB

With more than 35,300 apartments, Leipziger Wohnungs- und Baugesellschaft mbH (LWB) is the largest municipal housing company in Saxony. Our tenants and we are "at home in Leipzig", an attractive city with charm and appeal. Leipzig has been growing for years and we are growing with it.

More than just a roof over your head

As a strategic partner of the city of Leipzig, we implement urban and housing development goals. This ranges from supplying broad sections of the population with housing to support the city in creating social infrastructure. Because living is more for us than just a roof over our heads, we assume responsibility for our neighbourhoods and their inhabitants in many ways. There we help charitable associations and initiatives that are committed to good neighbourly relations and thus help to make living feel good.

Client for the region

Since its foundation in 1990, our company has invested around one and a half billion euros in the maintenance and development of the portfolio. Assets that we not only manage and secure, but also increase on behalf of our citizens. This has benefited and continues to benefit not least the regional economy. We award most of our contracts to companies and craftsmen in and around Leipzig.

Innovative and environmentally conscious

With our 49 solar systems on the roofs of our houses, we contribute to environmentally friendly energy generation. Through the energy-efficient refurbishment and family and senior-friendly modernisation of the Kreuzstraßenviertel district, we were able to implement a model project that serves as a model for future projects. Breaking new ground: This was also our goal in a joint project with Leipzig scientists. We tested whether a special facade coating would help to improve the air.

From slab to monument

Our houses are as diverse as our tenants. The buildings, which date from all construction periods from the end of the 19th century onwards, accommodate tenants from all over the world. Young families with several children feel at home with us, as do senior citizens, singles or students.
