D-Dusseldorf DGNB Certification for Le Quartier Central
Le Quartier Central, designed by ASTOC received a DGNB Certificate in silver for new Mixed City Districts. The DGNB System provides an objective description and assessment of the sustainability of buildings and urban districts. Quality is assessed comprehensively over the entire life cycle of the building. The DGNB Certification System can be applied internationally.

The site of the Neue Düsseldorfer Stadtquartiere (New Urban Quarters of Düsseldorf) lies close to the city center in the district of Derendorf. Following a workshop in 2000, the project has very steadily and purposefully developed. The narrow, necktie-shaped site is divided into several building areas by alternating building strips. This frees up space for various public and open spaces, known as the so-called Stadtgärten (city gardens). The spatial and built structure is guided by the buildings of the neighboring Wilhelminian period and is divided into different densities, with the silhouette of a high-rise building in the southern part. The multifunctional usage concept offers ideal conditions to create a lively urban quarter.
