Explanation:
Apartment layouts provide staircase access via three main routes.

see website ref for differentiation between "Spännertyp" (staircase access) and "Gangtyp" (corridor access)

In this context, "Erschließung" should be rendered by "access". In other situations, "Erschließung" could also relate to the technical side (services, utilities such as power, water, gas etc.).
