St.Wendel-Oberlinxweiler:  Social housing for socially disadvantaged and displaced persons by LEG Saar

Creating affordable living space also for refugees is a major topic for Saarland communities. However, the market for suitable accommodations is nearly exhausted and in St. Wendel, demand for corresponding housing is generally very big.
After LEG Saar´s proposal to also build social housing on the basis of functional descriptions in St.Wendel, the city now reacted promptly on one of its properties. So, a three-storey multi-party house with 12 subsidized apartments is just being erected west of the Marienkrankenhaus St.Wendel. The project is managed by LEG Saar Landesentwicklungsgesellschaft Saarland.

The company expects a short construction period. The completion of the multi-party house – start of construction was in June 2016 – is planned for mid November already. The investment volume is 1.5 million euros.
