Building block of the Europacity
In the Wasserstadt Mitte residential quarter around 700 apartments of various sizes were created on more than 50,000 square meters of rental space. The quarter is located in the Berlin-Mitte district, not far from the main train station, directly on the bank of the Berlin-Spandau shipping canal. It consists of four urban modules which, together with the historic Kornversuchsspeicher, form an important building block of the new Europacity, a mixed urban quarter with residential, commercial and cultural uses.
The Northern end
The extensive residential block ‘Riverside’ opens onto the water and forms the northern end with around 200 apartments. It is thus an important component of the entire Europacity development area. The overarching, urban scale is just as present in the building as the differentiated spatial staggering and depth of the facades with balconies, loggias and terraces as an attractive offer for the residents. The central location in the city, the direct connection to the waterfront promenade of the Schiffahrtskanal and the Nordhafenpark right in front of the entrance door form the framework for a variety of apartments of different layouts and spatial concepts up to co-living. They are individually typologically readable and gathered under a common roof.
Living in the Water City
Europacity is an important project of Berlin’s urban development in a central urban location, on an area of around 61 hectares. A total of around 3,000 apartments and approximately 16,500 jobs are being built here. The new residential block will give the Europacity district an accentuated structure as a finishing touch on the northern harbor. Together with the neighboring new buildings and the historic granary as a place for art and culture, the new residential building forms the Wasserstadt Mitte.
