Tossehof Gelsenkirchen

Built in accordance with the guiding principles of 1970s urban development, the Tossehof was a desirable residential estate with good shopping facilities in green surroundings. By the end of the 1980s however, vacant flats and a onesided occupancy strategy created a high level of resident dissatisfaction and a bad image for the neighbourhood.
Since the end of 2006, the city of Gelsenkirchen, together with the ggw and other project partners involved in the “Stadtumbau West” support programme, have been focussed on a comprehensive plan of action to upgrade the local residential area. In essence, this plan entailed dismantling and modernising the existing ggw buildings, improving the open areas, revitalising the shopping centre and establishing a neighbourhood management service.
The dismantling of the ggw residential buildings on Kopernikusstrasse was completed at the end of 2008. It is planned, that 103 publicly funded flats should be ready for new occupants by the summer of 2010. The planning of these flats especially took the need for small, barrier-free flats into consideration.
Since April 2009, two job creation projects, the “carekauf” supermarket and a Caritas Café, have improved the provision of local supplies for residents and the local neighbourhood management office ensures prompt support for the community and encourages neighbourliness.
Further structural improvement measures are due for completion by 2012 and plans are also being made to involve private investors in supporting modernisation projects.
