On 8 July, work to expand the ‘Wällerichen’ commercial area began with a symbolic groundbreaking ceremony, with Minister of Economic Affairs Anke Rehlinger in attendance. LEG Saar is helping the municipality of Tholey to expand this area in Hasborn-Dautweiler. This SHS subsidiary is responsible for the technical management of the project.
Part of the ‘Wällerichen’ plot was developed a few years ago, and various medium-sized companies have since moved in. This commercial area is near the A1 and therefore offers very attractive logistics for local companies.
The next step relates to a usable area similar in size to a football field. In accordance with the land-use plan for the current project covering around 9,000 m2, sewer and terracing work was completed to develop the area.
The construction project, with a total cost of around 2.2 million euros, is being handled via an escrow account managed by LEG Saar. The Ministry of Economic Affairs will subsidise the project up to 95% of the project’s deficit eligible for funding.
The construction work will most likely finish in the summer of 2022, followed by planting the following autumn.
CEO Valentin Holzer is delighted that things are picking up in Hasborn: ‘LEG Saar, as partner to the municipalities of Saarland, is once again providing effective project management. Together, we are driving the development of our state.’
