Killesberghöhe – from exhibition centre to urban hub


Killesberg enjoys a unique status in terms of urban development. It is a premium residential site, boasting an art academy, recreational area and the Weissenhof Estate. The name will be familiar to any architect worth his salt. This makes it not only a valuable USP but also, and most importantly, a benchmark and responsibility for future generations.

Fürst Developments‘ Killesberg Project focused on the site character and development in a modern context. You will not find any architectural mediocrity at Killesberg. Directly adjacent to a milestone in modern architectural history, the bar was set very high for planners and designers. One reason why four award-winning architects were selected for the job of planning: Ortner & Ortner Baukunst, KCAP Architects & Planners, Baumschlager Eberle and David Chipperfield Architects.

Killesberghöhe offers apartments at Höhenpark, shops, office space, a medical centre, Stuttgart‘s leading furniture store, an exclusive gym and spa, and an attractive underground car park with extra-large parking spaces. A non-denominational childcare centre with 110 places (0–6 years) rounds off the district‘s infrastructure offering. The underground station is linked directly to the shops. Perfect local services and quality of life for an entire urban district.

The Killesberghöhe district was awarded a gold certificate by the DGNB for sustainable project development.
