More and more people are saying "yes" to Düsseldorf: The population of North Rhine-Westphalia's state capital continues to grow. With around 646,000 inhabitants, the metropolis on the Rhine is now the second-largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia and the seventh-largest city in Germany. More than 10 million people live in the catchment area of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan region - that is roughly one-eighth of the population of Germany. Contrary to demographic trends in Germany as a whole, population growth across almost all age groups is forecast for Düsseldorf. According to current projections, around 704,000 people will live in Düsseldorf in 2040 - compared with the reference year 2018, this corresponds to a growth of around 14%.
The METRO Campus is directly connected to Düsseldorf city center via Grafenberger Allee and offers space for modern residential development concepts, office space, retail, gastronomy, educational facilities (consisting of kindergartens and an elementary school), studios, workshops, parks and gardens as well as mobility hubs and care facilities. With its diverse infrastructure, the METRO Campus of the Future reflects the flexible living and working culture of the 21st century. The METRO Campus opens up to the city, the neighborhood and the people who live and work here. It becomes part of a larger whole. An urban anchor in the Düsseldorf metropolitan region, a gateway to the campus area, a place full of ideas, new living and working worlds for all generations.
The best of 3 worlds
Flingern, Grafenberg and Düsseltal. These are 3 neighborhoods that could hardly be more different. Each of them has its own very special charm. And each in its own way fulfills the expectations and needs of the residents. Normally, you must choose one type of surrounding flair. Not so with METRO Campus: thanks to its incomparable location at the intersection of the Düsseldorf districts of Flingern, Düsseltal and Grafenberg, the area is a most welcome exception in terms of versatility - and benefits fully from the different advantages of the respective districts.
With the METRO Campus, a new urban district is being created in the heart of Düsseldorf. The urban development tender process and the resulting winning design correspond 1:1 with the vision underlying the METRO Campus: to create a sensitive and well-thought-out neighbourhood development whose infrastructure consistently considers everything that constitutes an independent quarter for living, working and enjoying.
Infrastructure and mobility at their best
The METRO Campus lives the vision of a neighbourhood with fewer cars and an efficient development concept. Residents, professionals, and visitors benefit from a well-thought-out mobility solution, which is ensured thanks to the very good connections to the public transport network that already in place. Individual mobility needs are met by a wide range of car and bike sharing services, as well as pick-up-stations and bicycle garages in the form of mobility hubs in the neighborhood. The public spaces are primarily available to pedestrians and cyclists and are designed with areas of blue-green infrastructure.
