Building in Wolfsburg

Before the dream home is built, there is usually a lot to do - from selecting the plot of land to obtaining the necessary permits and finally the actual construction work.

Development plans

Just as a house is planned down to the last detail, potential building areas must also be selected, evaluated and planned. Several months of urban land use planning pass before a building area is created. Here, the urban planning department not only takes care of the formal specifications and planning, but also ensures that the public's concerns about planned construction projects are taken into account.

Building areas

In addition to residential inner-city projects that tend to offer rental and owner-occupied apartments close to the center, urban construction areas tend to be implemented in the local districts and offer opportunities for classic single-family home construction. However, there are also more projects being implemented here that offer townhome, chain or duplex opportunities. You are still undecided which district is the right one for your own home?

Land purchase

For the dream of your own four walls, you first need to find the right piece of land. A wide variety of factors play a role when deciding on a building plot: Where should the plot be located? How far away from the workplace should it be? What kind of landscape character should it have? Do you prefer a quiet location? How important is the accessibility for you? Are you or your family members dependent on public transport? What infrastructure, e.g. kindergarten, school, other educational institutions, stores, doctors should be accessible and at what distance?

As soon as you have reserved your desired property, the next step is the purchase of the property. Here, there is a lot to consider in order to be able to calculate the costs for the building project correctly. Find out about the purchase price and development costs of urban building plots.
