The medieval city of Weilburg, near Frankfurt, is planning to develop a retail, residential, and park space, which will be called Rathaus Terraces.

Now, the fact that there even exists a medieval city should be interesting enough on its own. But funny enough, the Rathaus Terraces is set to replace a parking structure (now I ask you, why would a medieval city need parking in the first place?). At any rate, the Rathaus Terraces designed by ACME will feature green roofs, natural ventilation, and daylightingâ€"all authentic medieval elements, I presume. Large format retail will be oriented towards the city center to attract passerbys.
