PEDESTRIANIZATION FOR REVITALISATION
A new era in the City of Squares began in April with the completion of the renovation of Planken, Mannheim's most important promenade. Featuring a stylish pavement, new lighting and modern seating facilities, the boulevard between Paradeplatz and Wasserturm radiates new splendour. This has had a direct effect on the surroundings of Paradeplatz as well as at the end of Kurpfalzstraße due to the disappearance of construction sites. Both locations have developed very well this year due to contract extensions and new lettings. For example, Deichmann is extending the contract for its 1,000 m² shoe store in Kurpfalzstraße, and fast food chain Pizza Hut has secured a new location on Planken. However, the renovation of Planken is not the only project to be completed in 2019. The K1 Karree project in Kurpfalzstraße will also be completed and opened in September 2019.
