Start of demolition works on the former Höll Area

The first excavators have already arrived. By end of the year, the former sausage factory shall be completely demolished, thus clearing the path for a new usage of the ground. By 2017, a lively center of town with shops, apartments (including barrier-free apartments), and a new marketplace shall be created here.

After the demolition, Illingen-based investor Brauturmgalerie, the community of Illingen and state-owned LEG Saar (another SHS subsidiary) as project manager will develop and use the area. All in all, roughly 35 million euros shall be invested, with 6 million euros being borne by the community of Illingen, around half being paid by a private investor, and the remaining sum being financed by regional, federal and EU subsidies.
