going urbanana!

The banana-shaped urban jungle that extends from the Ruhr Area and Düsseldorf to Cologne is so inimitable and at the same time multifaceted that you should urgently consider paying a visit to this western region of Germany

Our projects are our flagship. They make urbanana what it is: a creative playground with unlimited possibilities to realise your ideas. Get to know some of the personalities who have found their home or place of work here.

No matter whether your heart beats for art, music, digital, new business ideas or all of the above: We feel for you. Show us what you think and get in touch with us. You can also find news about our projects on our social media channels.
