Look at the second tunnel of the Scandic hotel, the blank wall at High Park, and the elevated area under the red building in the first picture. Are there infos about a new s-bahn or u-bahn line / expansion?
That second tunnel is for the planned S-Bahn line 21. Wiki: English / German

Berlin homebuilders eye new opportunities in city’s western half



When it is completed later this year, the penthouse apartment of Eisenzahn 1 will be among the most expensive in Berlin. Priced at €8.5m, this three-bedroom, full-floor home will overlook the bustling shops and cafés on the Kurfürstendamm, perhaps the grandest thoroughfare in the old West Berlin during the cold war and a street barely touched by developers since the Wall came down in 1989.

For more than 25 years, homebuilders have been pouring money into the eastern half of the city, building smart new homes in areas that were crumbling and shabby when reunification took place.

Now, with prices at record highs in the old East Berlin and developable land in short supply, developers are turning to the city’s western half, which has found itself in the grip of a building boom.

Eisenzahn 1 joins more than 30 new residential projects under construction or recently completed in west Berlin, according to permits issued by the Senatsverwaltung für Stadtentwicklung und Umwelt, the city building authority.

“The increase marks one of the busiest periods for new construction in decades in the west and illustrates developers’ eagerness to expand beyond the former east,” says Alexander Harnisch, managing partner at Diamona & Harnisch, a developer.

The company recently broke ground on Carré Voltaire, a 127-unit apartment block on Kurfürstenstrasse in the western district of Schöneberg. Apartments in the white stone building range in size from 53 sq metres to 256 sq metres and are priced from €4,400 to €7,400 a sq metre.

Other upmarket projects under construction in the west include High West, a development of nearly 200 apartments in the upmarket district of Wilmersdorf.

Though it won’t be complete until 2018, a penthouse with unobstructed city views has already sold, says developer Ziegert Bank- und Immobilienconsulting. Apartments range in price from €4,200 to €13,000 a sq metre.

Many of Berlin’s western districts have felt rather affluent for a generation. All the time the Wall stood, western neighbourhoods such as Charlottenburg, Schöneberg and Spandau flourished in relation to areas in the east.

After reunification in 1990, as the German government poured billions of Deutschmarks into rebuilding a then crumbling East Berlin, the western half of the city remained a popular tourist destination, thanks to its tranquil squares, museums and cultural spots, including Charlottenburg Palace, the Deutsche Oper opera house and the Tiergarten, the city’s most popular park.

The surge in construction comes amid rising real estate values in the west. Property prices in the 12 districts that make up western Berlin were up 12 per cent year on year in the fourth quarter of 2015, according to Immobilien Scout, Germany’s biggest online property agency. Prices have risen 74 per cent since 2009, the company says.

Much of the rise is being fuelled by young people, attracted by the city’s creative atmosphere and social scene, says Axel Martin Schmitz, head of project development at Ralf Schmitz, the company behind Eisenzahn 1.

“Berlin’s population is growing rapidly and that’s creating the strongest housing demand the city has seen in years,” he says.

While the bulk of Berlin’s new building activity is now taking place in the west, the central Mitte district — once part of East Berlin — with landmarks such as the Brandenburg Gate and Berlin Cathedral, is still seeing some significant development, with celebrity architects behind two projects under construction in the area.

Hochtief to build €200m Berlin scheme

Hochtief has been appointed as general contractor for the construction of Mercedes Platz in Berlin, Germany.

The Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG) is client for the Mercedes Platz development, which is in front of the Mercedes-Benz Arena. The aim is for it to become the heart of the growing urban quarter adjacent to the East Side Gallery.

Ground-breaking will take place in early June for the project, which involves a total investment of about €200m (£158m). Completion is due in autumn 2018.

AEG’s vice president real estate and development Michael Kötter said: “We are delighted that in Hochtief we have acquired a reliable partner with great experience of major projects for the construction of Mercedes Platz. Our agreement ensures that the project will be completed on time and within budget.”

Thilo Warlich, Branch Manager of Hochtief Building Berlin: “We are honored by the trust Anschutz has placed in us to build Mercedes Platz. We have already prepared thoroughly for the project in an effective pre-construction phase, and implemented technical optimisations. We look forward to this exciting construction challenge and an excellent working relationship with Anschutz.”

Offshore investment funds exploit Berlin's housing shortage

A British offshore investment fund, set up specifically to exploit Berlin's property market, is using unnecessary refurbishments to boost rent prices by up to 80 percent, according to tenants of three buildings in the city's central Kreuzberg district.

Both residents and opposition politicians in the German capital are calling the case an example of how property speculators are able to use environmental loopholes to bypass Berlin's rent cap and exacerbate the shortage of affordable housing in the city, where rents have risen by up to seven percent in the past two years.

Jersey-based property fund Taliesin, which owns Eisenbahnstrasse 44 and two adjacent buildings on Muskauerstrasse, wants to clad the walls of the buildings with insulation and replace all the windows, at a cost of nearly 26,000 euros ($30,000).

This would exempt the building from Berlin's rent cap, which was introduced last June. The costs would be passed on to the tenants. According to the calculations of 13-year tenant Giles Schumm, this will result in an 80-percent rent increase for some residents, which few will be able to afford.

A handful of the tenants made their fears public early this month, organizing a protest on the street outside their homes and holding banners that read: "Thousands of Berliners driven out - Politicians, where are you?" and "Homes for people, not property for profit!"

Construction begins of Arup-designed micro apartments



Construction began last week of modular micro apartments designed to help solve student housing issues in Berlin, Germany.

The concept, developed by Arup, Berlinovo Immobilien and others, was created because of the high demand for affordable student housing in Berlin.

The first construction project on Storkower Straße in the district of Lichtenberg is part of a plan that aims to build a total of 2,500 apartments by 2020.

The development will provide approximately 2,400m² of living space with 129 micro apartments - which come fully equipped with a kitchenette and bathroom and have a floor area of 16m² - and will be completed by the start of next year’s summer semester.

The project was designed following a modular construction concept for micro apartments. The “technically optimised prototype” (TOP) can be implemented with different building materials including concrete, steel and also timber, which allows for a larger circle of potential bidders for the construction.

Arup said that the technique significantly reduces the construction time in comparison to conventionally built buildings and allows for flexible alternative use during a life expectancy of 40 years and more.

Today’s student accommodation could easily be converted to senior homes of tomorrow, said Arup. Another possible application of the modular construction concept could be to provide refugee accommodation.

“Our technically optimized prototype is ideal for such an application,” said Jan Kertscher, project manager at Arup Berlin. “Refugee accommodation could be built within a very short time period and used immediately. A long-term alternative use would easily be possible due to the high degree of flexibility.”

The project is called Maison Ouest and is located at Ansbacher Straße 30 / Passauer Straße 38.
It's quite close to the famed KaDeWe department store.

This one is now complete.
