Focus on high-rises – New perspectives
It’s not about breaking more height records, but about combining ecologically sensible vertical construction with vibrant mixed use. We need the right mix of the asset classes residential, office, retail, hospitality and logistics – together with socially balanced concepts – to create urban centers in our major cities that are both attractive and livable.
The high-rise building as a vertical district will be a building block on the way to the city of the future. In this "The Sky’s the Limit – Focus on High-Rises" dossier, our high-rise experts examine what can be done, and what needs to be borne in mind along the way.
Portfolio holders and project developers face a wide range of challenges, especially in the case of high-rise buildings:
- High-rise buildings currently under construction implement highly innovative concepts from the very start of planning. But what about high-rise buildings that are already showing their age? How can we ensure that high-rise buildings remain attractive in the long term?
- Resources are becoming scarcer worldwide, while material prices are rising: The construction of buildings – particularly high-rise buildings – uses huge amounts of resources. How can Cradle to Cradle and Urban Mining provide solutions?
- Contemporary high-rise buildings are designed for flexible space allocation to enable a wide range of uses – today’s coliving or serviced apartments can become tomorrow’s offices or coworking space. What has to be considered during planning to ensure that the owner is in a position to respond successfully to any future market changes.
