The kitzingen city council has formed its opinion. If it has its way, the S& Z real estate e.K. And the S& Z invest gmbh from bad neustadt an der saale was awarded the contract to buy the roughly 200 hectares of the harvey barracks. However, the decision as to who will actually benefit is up to the owner of the former military site: the bundesanstalt fur immobilienaufgaben (bima).
A total of eleven interested parties submitted bids, three of which were shortlisted by bima. Since the development of the harvey barracks can be decisive for the future of the city, bima and the city of kitzingen agreed that the city will make a recommendation for sale. To enable the council to form an opinion, representatives of all three bidders made non-public presentations to the city council and provided details of their respective ideas for use. On thursday evening, the council now named its favorite bidder in private: S& Z.
"The decision has been made with a rough majority. We recommend that bima continue the sales negotiations with the S& Z group to run", informed the head of the building department oliver graumann yesterday on request. This group strives for a commercial use, which also focuses on regenerative energies.
Hundreds of jobs?
Klaus Ziegler of S& Z could not be reached yesterday. His brother wolfgang ziegler would not say anything about the kitzingen project because he was not the main person responsible for it.
According to sources with integrity, the S& Z group supported by wurzburg-based roos geo consult (geotechnical and geosciences) and dettelbach-based PD drilling and sounding company. The aim is to create an energy and technology park in kitzingen, including a biogas and gas purification plant, a soil treatment plant (during the necessary clearance of explosive ordnance and remediation of contaminated sites), a basic center, research and development areas, production and installation areas for renewable energies, a test track for propulsion technology and the special landing field that has been decided upon. 500 to 1000 jobs could be created. The concept envisages using part of the FFH area for photovoltaics.
The recommendation made by the city council is not binding on bima. The operation of the airfield as a special landing field is therefore and because of the necessary approval procedures not yet in dry cloth; in general, however, it seems to integrate well.
According to larissa komnick, bima should have concluded the sales negotiations by late summer. Then it will be clear whether the kitzingen favorite will be chosen.
