Schumacher Quartier as Smart City
Model project: Schumacher Quartier is the project of reference in Berlin for climate- adapted and water-sensitive urban development.
Mobility concept: Schumacher Quartier becomes a car-free district with its own bicycle lanes and bicycle highways. District garages on the outskirts serve as mobility hubs with provision for public transportation, bike- and car-sharing, and e-mobility. In addition, the innovation park will be connected to the regional network for cycling and public transportation.
Energy concept: A low-energy network, unique in the world for its size, supplies Berlin TXL with sustainable heating and cooling. The result is a digitalized marketplace for thermal energy with prosumers, who both consume and produce energy.
FUTR Hub: A networked digital infrastructure will be built in Berlin TXL with the FUTR Hub high-performance IT platform. Urban data will be integrated into the FUTR Hub for smart environmental monitoring, traffic, and energy and rainwater management, as well as intelligent control systems for technical infrastructure, and the processes for facility management at the site will be mapped.
Sustainable construction: The aim is to be certified according to the criteria of the DGNB (German Sustainable Building Council). Moreover, with Schuhmacher Quartier the largest timber-constructed district in the world will become a reality.
In Schumacher Quartier and the immediate vicinity there will be around 30 hectares of public green spaces, playgrounds, and public squares, for example a district park for the residents.
Landscaping west of Schumacher Quartier totaling more than 200 ha will be incorporated into the existing local recreation area on the far side of the former airport grounds and offers space for sport and play as well as discovering nature for all Berlin residents.
A landscape park forms the transition between the Urban Tech Republic and the adjacent Schumacher Quartier district to the east.
