Starting signal for Zukunftsquartier Neulichterfelde

The decision by the Steglitz-Zehlendorf district council to approve development plan 6-30 clears the way for the "Neulichterfelde" future quarter.

With the timely subsequent announcement in the Berliner Amtsblatt, all formal requirements have been met and the development plan comes into force.

After a long process, the Berliner Groth Group can now begin the first stage of further planning, site clearance and development. The approx. 97-hectare Neulichterfelde quarter (including the Lichterfelder Weidelandschaft) in the Steglitz-Zehlendorf district will be built on the former American military training area "Parks Range". Around 2,500 apartments are planned between Anhalter Bahn and Osdorfer Strasse, including around 540 subsidized apartments, around 1,540 rental and owner-occupied apartments and around 420 terraced houses. The district also includes three daycare centers, an elementary school with a sports hall and sports field, a youth facility and a town square with retail and commercial space. The subsidized rental apartments are managed by the
by the state-owned housing association DEGEWO AG.

Architectural design and district development

The basis for the district development is the master plan by Casanova + Hernandez Architects from Rotterdam, who won the first architecture workshop. In the subsequent in-depth workshops, KSV Krüger Schubert Vandreike Planung und Kommunikation GmbH, Christoph Kohl Architekten GmbH and Hemprich Tophof Gesellschaft von Architekten mbH came out on top.

On an area of around 36 hectares, five to six-storey residential buildings will be built along the planned streets, closing the edges of the blocks. Spacious playgrounds and green areas will be created at the same time. Towards the approximately 61-hectare Lichterfelder Weidelandschaft, the residential buildings will be flatter and merge into terraced housing. The heart of "Neulichterfelde", which will one day be home to up to 6,000 Berliners as well as new Berliners, will be the central town square directly at Lichterfelde Süd S-Bahn station. The investment sum for the quarter is around 900 million euros.

Thomas Groth, Managing Director of the Groth Group: "We are very pleased to have finally reached this milestone. Berlin urgently needs apartments and the Neulichterfelde project, with its planned 2,500 units, can make a major contribution to easing the housing market in the south-west of the city."

Antonia Heiming, Managing Director of the Groth Group: "After we acquired the plot in 2012 and started the first urban planning workshops for the development back in 2013, the time has finally come and we can start implementing the project."
