The new urban quarter will be about 10 sq. km in size – roughly the same as the Berlin Mitte district. Inspired by the surrounding landscape, the park’s buildings will mirror the rock formations and green plains.

Short distances between the blocks, along with mixed uses and higher density, support walkability and energy conservation.
