Europacity Berlin

You are probably already familiar with Europacity Berlin. After all, the already completed distinctive architectural landmarks have attracted a lot of attention, though it is often not known that they belong to our quarter. A case in point is the cube berlin near the southern entrance to the main station, a spectacular solitary office building with a facetted, reflective facade designed by the Copenhagen architectural firm 3XN.

Renowned architects as designers

Several other prominent architects have also left their mark across the district. The 50Hertz building (designed by LOVE architecture and urbanism, Graz) on the north side of Invalidenstrasse, is a good example. Even further north, several architects have created compelling designs for several building complexes at the Quartier Heidestrasse development. Berlin-based architectural firm ROBERTNEUNARCHITEKTEN™, the much sought-after ‘young savages’ of housing design, has designed a building here for mixed residential and office use.

The building ensembles that are being created on the eastern side of Heidestrasse, such as the elegant apartment blocks with green inner courtyards in the Wasserstadt Mitte district as well as several freestanding buildings, are also worth a look. Many of these apartments overlook the water and will only be a short walk from the new central square, and other neighbourhood squares.

A neighbourhood merges into the everyday life of the city

How do you do that – create an entirely new urban experience on an old wasteland? Well, you take the best of Berlin and gather it all together on 61 hectares of an area with loads of potential. Let’s take a look first at the location. Europacity will fill a gap in the northern city centre and, once complete, become an integrated part of the city, forming a connection with inner-city neighbourhoods to its east and west.

There’s also the water. The Berlin-Spandau Shipping Canal has been slumbering unnoticed for a while. Now, it will have newly designed promenades with walking and cycling paths, alongside which are the residential areas with views across the canal. The large, central ‘Otto-Weidt-Platz’ is set to become a popular meeting place, and the various residential and commercial complexes will provide services and retail for all your daily necessities.

The right place for any size business

Then there’s the diverse mix of living and working, existing side by side and inspiring each other. Also, the range of building designs provides a variety of residential and office unit typology.

Offices that establish themselves in Europacity Berlin will also benefit from being part of this urban mix. Freelancers, three-person start-ups, innovative or prestigious national and international companies all bring life, interactions and activity into the mix.

Last but not least is the proximity to important institutions, potential partners or customers – because the centre of Berlin is where you find many of the city’s federal authorities, ministries, associations and company headquarters.

Sustainable and smart

Europacity Berlin takes responsibility for the future with sustainable and efficient energy concepts. We also have the greatest density of buildings under construction in Berlin designed according to the highest green, smart building standards. One example is the 50Hertz building near Invalidenstrasse, which has a photovoltaic and wind power plant on its roof to generate green electricity.

Smart technologies also promote sustainability and make life easier for the people in Europacity. App-based room utilisation systems will be available in the offices (EDGE Grand Central and cube berlin are pioneers in this area) as well as in the Quartier Heidestrasse with its SAP Campus and in many residential buildings. While heating, cooling, blinds and other interior features can all be controlled automatically, digital services will also be used for delivering parcels, for travel within the quarter, and for communication between residents. This creates a modern residential environment that is more comfortable, healthier and more environmentally friendly.

You can already undertake a virtual exploration of Europacity with our interactive map, simply by clicking the projects individually.

Green and open spaces

Landscape architects have designed attractive green and open spaces that take many forms, incorporating such elements as benches, trees, play and leisure areas, throughout Europacity. This, and their connection to the canal, will attract many people to the central square ‘Otto-Weidt-Platz’. You can take a walk and drink coffee by the water on the promenade along the canal which forms part of the cyclists’ Berlin Wall Trail. The various small neighbourhood squares and the inner courtyards are greened and filled with charm; in addition, at Nordhafenplatz, where the view opens up, new plants and lawns are being established.

Mobility

For getting around without creating stress and pollutants, charging points for electric cars will be made available at many places in the Europacity. In Quartier Heidestrasse, drivers will also have an app-based parking management system to assist them in finding a parking space. Car-sharing services will also be trialled here, with electric cars, e-scooters and cargo bikes. And, naturally, all buildings will provide plenty of parking spaces for bikes, and pedestrians can use the area's network of paths to reach every destination on foot quickly and easily.

Europacity bridges

You can reach Europacity quickly via some new and several existing bridges. The Golda-Meir-Steg, a pedestrian and cyclist bridge which will connect the area east of the Berlin-Spandau Shipping Canal to Europacity's principal new city square, is currently under construction.

It is also possible to cross into the new city quarter via the existing Kiel Bridge by bicycle or foot. Another bridge for pedestrians and cyclists that would lead west from Europacity across the tracks towards the area around Lehrter Strasse is currently in planning.
