Inter-Municipal Commercial and Industrial Area

Heidelberg + Leimen

The foundation of the Zweckverband Interkommunales Gewerbe- und Industriegebiet Heidelberg-Leimen (Special Purpose District Inter-Municipal Commercial and Industrial Area Heidelberg-Leimen) combines the strengths and advantages of the Cities of  Heidelberg and  Leimen, allowing us to make the most of our jointly developed and marketed areas.

Historic Legacy
Designed by the architect Neufert, the former production halls of Etex are landmarked and the only ones of their kind that still exist in Germany. Apart from Etex, Heidelberg Materials, today a company with international standing, has had a strong influence on the development of the Special-Purpose District from the beginning. Abandoned wasteland creates new opportunities to shape the commercial and industrial area in a future-oriented way and to offer attractive areas for businesses.


The Road to Our Zoning Map

As planning body of the Special-Purpose District’s territory, the Zweckverband Interkommunales Gewerbe- und Industriegbiet Heidelberg-Leimen (Special-Purpose District Inter-Municipal Commercial and Industrial Area Heidelberg-Leimen) takes over these tasks for the Cities of Heidelberg and Leimen based on a binding urban development plan.

Making use of already existing planning and buildings as a basis, a joint commercial and industrial area will be developed and reorganized, in particular its settlement structure, use and development, where indicated by urban development. Special emphasis lies on taking into account environmental issues as well as the interests of local businesses.
