News on WATERKANT Berlin in Spandau
At WATERKANT Berlin it’s full speed ahead! We show you what’s going on in and around the new Berlin neighbourhood in Spandau. Find out about news, upcoming events and past events such as the groundbreaking ceremony for the new residential quarter on the waterfront.
It’s making headway!
After less than a year, the first topping-out ceremony at WATERKANT can already be celebrated! The first topping-out wreath symbolises the entire future city quarter, for which Gewobag received the DGNB pre-certificate in platinum for sustainability. Together with the district a milestone for sustainable, social and modern urban design was set.
Day of the Little Master Builders
WATERKANT Berlin, together with Senator Katrin Lompscher and District Councillor Frank Bewig, welcomed 300 Berlin children at the largest holiday participation construction site on the tenth Day of the Little Master Builders on July 3, 2019. At numerous stalls supervised by Berlin craftsmen the children were busy working and learning – and the cult figure “Bob the Master Builder” also dropped by.
Subproject 3a is taking shape
Together, we discussed ideas for WATERKANT Berlin with many interested parties in ideas workshops and and citizens events, collected information on the planners’ designs and performed the ground-breaking ceremony on site. In the meantime, we have taken a big step forward: The jury unanimously decided in favour of the design by wiechers beck Architekten / ARGE Lavaland / Treibhaus Landschaftsarchitekten for subproject 3a. You can see all the designs from the competition in the exhibition at Spandau Town Hall up to 18 January 2019.
WATERKANT is making waves
With distinction: WATERKANT Berlin has reached the final of the Immobilienmanager Awards 2019 (Real Estate Manager Award 2019) in the category “Communication”. Clearly, our campaign at the start of the project also made a lot of waves outside of Berlin. So keep your fingers crossed for the award ceremony on 21 February in Cologne.
WATERKANT is well on course!
In summer 2018, construction work began on the first 362 apartments directly on the eastern bank of the Havel between Spandauer-See-Brücke and Wasserstadtbrücke. Here are some current impressions straight from the construction site on Templinersee- and Zernseestraße.
