I/D Cologne – the new quarter in Cologne’s Schanzenviertel – creates space for around 7,000 jobs. By 2026, eleven buildings with around 160,000 m² gross floor area will be built. dip handed over the ultra-modern car park with around 900 parking spaces to Art-Invest Real Estate and OSMAB Holding AG on schedule.

The innovative multi-storey car park has a promising security concept, contactless payment systems using license plate recognition and additional e-charging stations. In addition to comprehensive camera surveillance and several emergency call buttons, the security concept also includes bright lighting, which is now one of the basic requirements for new car park buildings.

“The building is a further step towards the urban upgrading of the district. It offers everything that makes a stay comfortable and pleasant. With its attractive and trend-setting design as well as the well thought-out security concept, it undoubtedly sets standards in the construction industry.”
Arne Hilbert, Managing Director of Art-Invest Real Estate (translated from German)
