Post-corona city – reorientation of city centre development in Kiel

For Kiel Marketing, we are developing spatial profiles for the post-pandemic “reprogramming” of Kiel’s city centre.

The ongoing transformation of the city centre is to be geared more towards production, creativity and new user groups. Together with Belius GmbH, we are analysing the current space available.

We are sharpening the future narratives and developing new profiling subspaces and their interactions with the region as a whole. Analyses, mappings and creative workshops help the state capital of Kiel to further develop its city centre.
