In the Vogelsand development area in Rauental, around 38 single-family houses and 24 semi-detached houses are to be built on an area of around 3.8 hectares on the southern edge of the village. Three multi-family houses are also planned, in which senior-friendly living is possible. The apartment buildings will have underground parking. The development of the construction area is scheduled for completion in 2024.
The plan is to connect the residential quarter to the sports fields and the Oberwald forest via a landscaped pedestrian path. This will also serve as a fresh air corridor. The inclusion of nature plays a major role in the planning of the new development area. Special focus is placed on the protection of species.
The planning of the new development area was undertaken by the architectural and urban planning office PETRI Planung from Baden-Baden and the Gesellschaft für kommunale Baulanderschließung (GkB) from Karlsruhe. The municipal council approved the urban development concept on May 22, 2022
Currently, the development plan is being prepared for publication.
