In order to increase the attractiveness of the conurbation Ruhr Area as a residential and industrial site the Land government of Nordrhein-Westfalen (NW) in 1979 has passed the “Aktionsprogramm Ruhr”. One emphasis of the political urban development concept in the course of the program is the “Grundstücksfonds Ruhr” (GFR); its task: reactivation of abandoned mining and industry sites for the urban development. “In order to excite the Ruhr Area’s plot market, to do away with plot defiles in individual cases and to reorder the gross cases of devasted landscape, abandoned work sites are acquired by the “Fonds” and are dressed and kept ready for a new structural utilization, being determined by municipal planning authorities” (Land Development Report, NW, 1982).
