The new neighborhood is situated between the Reichswald forest and the former Reichsparteitag site. In response to traffic noise, it features a largely closed perimeter development surrounded by a forest-like belt. Inside the perimeter the buildings as well as the courtyards are of smaller scale. Shops and social facilities are grouped around a central square. A group of listed houses is integrated into the new structure. Coming from the east a small high-rise at Regensburger Straße marks the entrance to the city of Nuremberg.
Kinks in plan and a stepped development of the building heights underline the theme of individual "town houses".
Two buildings containing a parking garage and offices provide noise protection against the railway tracks.
