Laying of the foundation stone for Wasserstadt Mitte
The foundation stone laying ceremony for the residential quarter, Wasserstadt Mitte, was held 20 September 2017. This project from Adler Real Estate AG is being developed by KAURI CAB, and located east of Heidestrasse on the Berlin-Spandau canal between Nordhafen and Europacity‘s new central square. The residential quarter is located to the north in a quiet part of Europacity and is due for completion in 2019. The six new buildings under construction have a gross floor area of approx. 72,000 square metres, comprising over 750 apartments with green inner courtyards, and spaces for retail, foodservices, and business. Some of the residential units will be built as modern micro-living studios, while others will be studio apartments that overlook the square, family apartments with private gardens, and loft apartments with water frontages. The focal point of Wasserstadt Mitte is the historic grain storage testing facility. This historically significant building, with its striking red brick facade, is to be repurposed after a renovation, and will set the aesthetic guideline for the whole Wasserstadt Mitte project.
