The development plan process for the UmweltQuartier on Nordwestring in Nuremberg is currently underway in coordination with the City of Nuremberg. UmweltBank's aim is to build a sustainable and liveable urban quarter to high ecological and social standards. In addition to residential buildings in timber hybrid construction, a student residence, a daycare center, commercial space and spacious, publicly accessible play and green areas are also planned.

Quartier 4 envisages three point blocks in timber hybrid construction. The basic structure of the building consists of load-bearing wall bulkheads made of cross-laminated timber, which are braced by a reinforced concrete core. On the short sides, the bulkheads also form the outer walls; on the long sides, the façade is non-load-bearing, which allows for easy projections and recesses. The non-load-bearing timber façade has a modular structure. The individual modules differ depending on their function: balcony railing, parapet, solar panel, window strip - these mosaic tiles create a varied yet orderly façade appearance.
