A CHANCE FOR MARL AND THE REGION

Economy needs change and demands courage. The end of an era creates space for something new. The former coal mine Auguste Victoria transforms into an area with a radiant reputation:

gate.ruhr – the gate to the Ruhr Valley.

Together we are taking on the task of developing the more than 90-hectare site in a magnificent location, quickly and efficiently. We want to breathe new life into the land, give it a new purpose, a new identity – as an industrial and business estate for Marl and the region.

 

This development rests on three pillars: We want to create jobs and thus apprenticeship opportunities for future generations, we want to be responsible for the environment and last but not least, we want to look after the people who live in closest proximity to the site.

On this website, we will keep you informed about gate.ruhr and invite you to come along on our path into the future. You too can be part of our vision!

„AV“ BECOMES GATE.RUHR: ALLOTMENT TO START IN THE NORTH

14. November 2017 | Rubriken: Uncategorized

„AV 3/7“ – which stands for Auguste Victoria 3/7 – becomes gate.ruhr: The development of the new Victoria is progressing big forward steps. The structural plan has already finalised, as well as an innovative concept to restore the area, where the Northern sector of the former coal mining site will be developed into an industrial and business location at record speed. The site is attracting a lot of interest amongst potential investors: „We get a lot of inquiries at the moment“, says Marl’s Lord Mayor, Werner Arndt. „Which is why we are keeping to our ambitious schedule and are beginning the development in the Northern part of the site.“

On May 17, 2017 approximately 60 visitors explored the site of the former coal mine called Auguste Victoria 3/7, under expert guidance. The excursion led the participants not only in the  steps of the past but also showed them a path to the future: Dr Manfred Gehrke, city council Marl, and Volker Duddek, RAG Montan Immobilien, gave the guests a look at the plans for the former coal mine site, where the industrial and business location called gate.ruhr is planned to be developed.

TURNING OVER THE STUCK PILE – AN INNOVATIVE PROCEDURE

The gate.ruhr project is also innovative on a different level: To get two parts of the site in the North quickly and cost-effectively to the same level, the site developers plan to shift masses of earth.
