Berlin is growing and urgently needs new living space. For this reason, the state-owned housing companies Gewobag and WBM are building the new WATERKANT Berlin quarter directly on the Oberhavel river near the Spandauer Seebrücke. The vibrant neighbourhood is being promoted with public spaces and a transparent participation process. The new district is also setting new standards for responsible and smart living – characterised by innovation and creativity.

Recipes for happiness from Northern Europe such as “hygge” and “lagom” serve as the basis for the development of a sustainable and social neighbourhood that offers a sense of security and cosiness. The concepts are echoed in the modern architecture: simple forms in harmony with the environment and meeting places for community life. Affordable, socially compatible living with a high quality of life combined with state-of-the-art technologies for a green, efficient and connected city point the way ahead for Berlin as a smart city. This includes a holistic mobility concept and ecological climate protection, which is guaranteed by an innovative energy concept.

WATERKANT Berlin combines living quality and nature experiences with an urban lifestyle. The new neighbourhood, with its unique location on the waterfront, offers flexible living options for every phase of life and kind of life plan. No matter whether it is newcomers or established Berliners: WATERKANT is open to everyone.
