SPINELLI . Quarter

Developing the city while creating living space and a home from a vision.

The future is here

SPINELLI is creating a lively and versatile urban quarter with a strong identity on 80 hectares of current conversion area.

The urban flair in the middle of greenery and the versatile recreational activities "on the promenade" or in the associated park exert a special charm. A wide range of housing, shopping facilities, educational institutions and sports clubs offer a wide variety of activities in the immediate vicinity. Direct access to the city centre and the surrounding districts make it a place that offers a sustainable and connected life for future residents. As a neighbourhood, residential area and park landscape, it meets the requirements of the future while being harmoniously integrated into the existing Käfertal and Feudenheim districts, thus supplementing, enriching and developing them as a living space.
