Residential high-rises were built in many places in the 1970s to deal with the housing shortage prevalent at the time, although this was done without averting the urban fabric. Just 20 years later, needs had drastically changed. Small areas in the northern Ruhr area in particular suffered not only from a declining population but also in some cases from these “eyesores”. The Schillerpark high-rise estate at the edge of Oer-Erkenschwick’s inner city stood in stark contrast to smaller-scale residential structures elsewhere in the city.
