The aim of this project was that, including participation of residents, landlords and businesses, the inner- city quarter ‚Scheelen- und Osterstraße‘ in Hildesheim should regain more of a profile. Via a process including all stakeholders Cityfoerster developed a vision and a design concept for the public realm, which can be implemented in phases. The project is mainly based on the efficient collaboration of the city of Hildesheim, it’s marketing agency, the society HBA as well as local residents group: During frequent public consultations design stages where presented, discussed and schemes to be realized ascertained. An essential aspect of the long- term success of the project is the resident’s acceptance and financial support. Through stakeholder meetings the resident’s aspirations where systematically incorporated into the design progress. Furthermore effective actions and press- coverage created a high degree of publicity, which generated acceptance as well as financial engagement of all residents and stakeholders.
