Place 1: FLÜWO Bauen Wohnen eG, Stuttgart: 9,489 residential units (2020)
FLÜWO was founded in Stuttgart in 1948. The aim at the time was to create housing in the city, which had been badly affected by the war. Today, the housing cooperative has 11,500 members and offers housing beyond Stuttgart. FLÜWO is represented at 31 locations in Baden-Württemberg and also in Saxony. The housing stock is concentrated in Stuttgart, Esslingen/Altbach, Mannheim, Heidelberg/Schwetzingen and in the Alb-Donau district and Ulm. Its core business is letting, managing and developing its own housing stock.
Place 2: Landes-Bau-Genossenschaft Württemberg eG, Stuttgart: 5,486 residential units (2020)
Shortly after World War 1 – in 1921 – the Landes-Bau-Genossenschaft Württemberg (LBG) was founded. From the very beginning, the aim was to provide affordable housing in the former state of Württemberg. Even today, the housing stock essentially extends to the Württemberg part of the state. In addition to its Stuttgart headquarters, LBG also has branch offices in Heilbronn, Kornwestheim, Ludwigsburg, Ulm and Friedrichshafen. These locations also mark the housing focal points of the housing cooperative.
Place 3: Gartenstadt-Genossenschaft Mannheim eG, Mannheim: 4,181 residential units (2020)
The garden city concept of the British urban planner Ebenezer Howard was the inspiration for the founding of the Gartenstadt-Genossenschaft Mannheim in 1910. The work of the cooperative was formative for Mannheim. The city owes the Gartenstadt and Almenhof districts to it. Even today, Gartenstadt is Mannheim’s greenest district. In addition to its housing activities, the cooperative also operates a savings institution with over 45 million euros in savings. The housing stock is spread over the entire Mannheim city area with a focus on Gartenstadt, Almenhof and Vogelstang.
