On 21 June, the city of Marl will provide information about current developments in the planned industrial and commercial area. The administration wants to talk to citizens.
Marl’s mayor Werner Arndt invites interested citizens to another citizens’ dialogue on the planned gate.ruhr industrial and commercial area on 21 June. It starts at 7 pm in the Pauluskirche. Registrations are now possible.
City plans five themed islands
The city of Marl and the gate.ruhr project company would like to inform the public about the current state of affairs at gate.ruhr. The event is scheduled to last about two hours. Mayor Werner Arndt will welcome the citizens at the beginning. “We want to continue to provide open, modern and transparent information about developments at gate.ruhr,” says Werner Arndt. After a brief introduction to the overall project, the dialogue with the citizens will begin directly. The city is planning five theme islands that can be visited: traffic, environment, planning, construction phase and marketing. “There we would like to get into conversation with the citizens and residents, take suggestions and respond to questions,” says Werner Arndt. The talks will later be summarised and discussed in a plenary session.
Registrations for the gate.ruhr citizens’ dialogue on Tuesday, 21 June 2022, at 7 p.m. in the Pauluskirche (Römerstraße 61, 45772 Marl) are now possible by calling (+49 2365) 99-6700 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. On the evening of the event, participants are asked to observe the recommended hygiene and infection protection regulations of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and to stay at home if they show typical signs of illness. Participants are asked to voluntarily wear mouth and nose protection.
gate.ruhr: 1,000 jobs for Marl and the region
The city of Marl and RAG Montan Immobilien GmbH, the developer of mining sites, want to attract innovative companies to the site of the former Auguste Victoria 3/7 mine. Up to 1,000 additional jobs and apprenticeships are to be created there over the next few years, opening up new prospects for the future, especially for future generations.
- Marl presents itself at the real estate fair as a prime location
- Exchange with international parties from business and urban planning
After last year’s break due to Covid, the city is once again making national and international contacts this week at Europe’s largest real estate fair, Expo Real. In Munich, Marl presents itself and gate.ruhr as a prime location.
gate.ruhr is a unique opportunity: for committed companies, the economy and the people in the region. The planned location for industry and commerce has plenty of potential. Interested investors were once again able to see this for themselves during the “Investor Tour Ruhr”.
„It is in the interest of the NRW government to develop the site further“, Prof Dr Andreas Pinkwart, North Rhine-Westphalian Minister for Economic Affairs, declared after visiting the former coal mining pit Auguste Victoria 3/7 in Marl. Within the coming years, the business and industrial project „gate.ruhr“ will be developed here with supra-regional circulation.
„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.
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.
The Ruhr Valley urgently needs space for industry and businesses in order to create more jobs. But in this densely populated area, large industrial sites are scarce or only useable after an immense effort.
