(Berlin, 13. May 2020) – Hines, the international real estate firm, has fully let the commercial space in the city quarter Südkreuz (“Stadtquartier Südkreuz”) prior to its completion. With the revitalization of Schöneberger Linse neighbourhood, Hines is currently developing a new urban quarter in the middle of Berlin. In addition to 664 apartments, 10,300 square metres of high-quality office and commercial space is being created in a separate building. Long-term leases have now also been signed for the last commercial units. A space of 113 square metres is currently being used as a letting office, since the marketing of apartments in the city quarter Südkreuz has just begun.
The anchor tenant of the commercial property is energy supplier “ENGIE Deutschland”. In addition to the rented space of 4,700 square metres, the company will also occupy an area of around 1,150 square metres on the ground floor. A new tenant is “Autobahn GmbH des Bundes”, which will relocate their capital city branch office to the city quarter Südkreuz. The federal government company that administers the motorways in Germany has leased over 1,900 square metres on the 5th and 6th floors of the building. With exception of a remaining unit on the 6th floor, all premises are scheduled to be handed over to the tenants in June.
Hines is also developing a completely new quarter on more than 20,000 square metres close to the city centre in Schöneberg with a wide-ranging offer of community amenities. The long-term objective is to enhance the district’s attractiveness. The quarter is also ideally connected to the A100 motorway, the Südkreuz railway station for local and long-distance travel and the future BER airport. The Berlin city centre can be reached by public transport within minutes. The future tenants will enjoy an aesthetic concept, especially due to the variations in the façade elements of the individual buildings. In addition, a DGNB Gold Certificate from the German Sustainable Building Council for particularly sustainable construction is being pursued.
