Berlin, 24 September 2019. SAP, the world's leading producer of enterprise software applications, signed the lease in the Quartier Heidestrasse in the Berlin Europacity. The listed company with headquarters in Walldorf leased around 30,000 square meters in the smart building ensemble QH Track and will install a digital campus with up to 1,200 employees there
Location of SAP underlines the Quartier’s campus character
MIX IT LIKE BERLIN, that’s the motto of Quartier Heidestrasse. Here a lively, urbane, digital and sustainable quartier will be created in which all forms of modern work, life and living can be combined.
Thomas Bergander, General Manager of Quartier Heidestraße GmbH, explained on the occasion of the contract closing: “We are very happy that SAP will move into our QH Track office building in the Quartier Heidestrasse. This decision means that a digital hub will be created which not only fits our concept of a smart and digital Quartier perfectly but it also means that the employees of SAP will have a great impact on the lively campus atmosphere of the Quartier Heidestrasse.“
„SAP loves Berlin. We and our customers can no longer imagine a world without the capital and its tech- ecosystem. That applies as much to innovations in the future as to Berlin as an important labour market. Berlin, unlike any other capital, has an energy that radiates beyond Europe,” said SAP technology chief executive and Berlin resident Jürgen Müller.
Michael Müller, Berlin’s governing mayor, emphasises: “SAP played a major role in Berlin’s transformation since reunification and the development into the digital capital in the past years, and has grown here steadily. The decision to develop a common campus in the Quartier Heidestrasse is altogether fantastic news for the employees in Berlin and the city itself as well as a strong signal for the city of science and research. I am very happy about the new centre of the digital economy in the heart of the city and wish all SAP all the best for the project.“
Best networked: Smart technologies for a Quartier with comfort
QH Track marks the western entrance to the new quartier. It is composed of nine buildings with five to 14 storeys with heights up to 55 meters as well as a total length of approximately 550 meters. QH Track creates a total of some 104,000 square meters of high quality office space. All of the building elements for the complex are to be finished in 2023.
QH Track is distinguished by the integration in the digital platform of the Quartier Heidestrasse. This unique quartier platform, networking very different uses for residential, retail, and offices, will be the
brain of the quartier and follow the principle: simplify processes, add value, increase comfort and promote neighbourhoods.
