Master plan 3.0
The foundation stone was laid by the master plan of the British star architect Sir Nicholas Grimshaw. Under his lead, residents and entrepreneurs developed an urban development vision for their city which in 2016 culminated in the mg+ Wachsende Stadt urban development strategy. Grimshaw focused on the city’s two centres – Gladbach and Rheydt – and on its unique location in the middle of the green region of the Lower Rhine with its excellent connections to the national transport hubs.
