This project has been in the works since 2017 with the hopes that it can better address the problems of housing shortages, car pollution, and many other issues that come with the modern world and the need for sustainability.

The Schumacher Quartier project hopes to provide more than 5,000 homes for over 10,000 people. It will also have the corresponding number of amenities needed, such as daycare centers, schools, shopping facilities, and tons of greenery. Meanwhile, another 4,000 homes are also being planned for the other neighboring areas.

Moreover, a charter agreed on the following seven guidelines when it comes to the development of the project. These include urban living spaces, housing for everyone, urban green space and public areas, open educational landscape, climate-friendly and water-sensitive urban development, district with environmentally-friendly mobility guaranteed, and communication, participation, and transparency.
