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.
Information event about the further planning of the neighbourhood development
We would like to inform you as interested parties about the further sub-projects, the planned construction process and the mobility concept of WATERKANT and invite you to the information event. Afterwards, we will be available to answer your questions.
We will meet on 26 February 2020 from 6:30-7:30 pm in the Gothic Hall in the Berlin Citadel, Am Juliusturm 64, 13599 Berlin (access to the hall is barrier-free; access to the citadel is via historic, rugged pavement). The meeting will be held in German.
In order to get a certain amount of planning security, we’d be grateful if you could register in advance by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 21, 2020. You can also register free of charge by calling our Service Center at 0800 4708-800.
Award-winning communication: WATERKANT Berlin honoured with two Fox Awards
WATERKANT Berlin, currently the largest new construction project of Gewobag and WBM, received the Fox Award 2019 in the category of construction and real estate for outstanding image communication. The concept and implementation of the external communication were also honoured with a silver Fox Award.
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.
Bürgerbeteiligung 2017 EN
Seit letztem Jahr lädt die Gewobag in Kooperation mit der WBM BürgerInnen und AnwohnerInnen zu regelmäßigen Infoveranstaltungen ein, um alle Beteiligten kontinuierlich über die geplante Quartiersentwicklung und den Bauablauf zu informieren. Bisheriger Höhepunkt war die Ideenwerkstatt im November 2017, bei der gemeinsam Ideen für die Auslobung des städtebaulichen Wettbewerbs für das dritte Teilprojekt gesammelt wurden und über die Gestaltung der Freiflächen abgestimmt wurde.
Info day on the start of construction
On 5 September 2018, interested parties were able to gain a first impression of the new quarter on Spandau’s Havel riverside promenade and enjoy the beautiful view with fish & chips, waffles and drinks.
Besides information about the construction project, a lot more was provided for the more than 300 visitors of all ages: balloon art, a photo box, children’s make-up, food trucks and beach chairs with a view of the Havel made the info day a unique event.
2nd citizens’ event
In October 2018, more than 60 interested parties came to the Spandau Citadel for the presentation the anonymous competition entries. Here, a total of six designs for the area south of Rhenaniastrasse and east of Daumstrasse were presented to the public for the first time. The attendees put their questions and expressed their opinions on the designs. These could be seen on site on movable walls and in model form and formed the centrepiece for the subsequent tour. There was also an opportunity to examine the designs directly and to make comments.
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.
