The KLINGSÖHR Group and DERECO Asset Management celebrated the topping-out ceremony for the SHED project in Berlin-Neukölln together with around 400 guests. The guests could enjoy the unique location on the water. "Neukölln is one of the fastest growing districts with high demand for office and commercial space. The SHED offers the same or even better building quality and at the same time, with an average of 25 euros per square meter, significantly lower rents than in Berlin-Mitte or Charlottenburg," explains Stefan Klingsöhr, managing partner of the KLINGSÖHR group of companies. The construction work is on schedule. Completion is planned for 2023. The investment volume amounts to around 250 million euros. The project is being financed by Berliner Sparkasse.
The SHED building ensemble will offer around 35,000 square meters of space for offices, laboratories, low-emission production or start-ups over more than 15,500 square meters of land. SRH Berlin University of Applied Sciences leased more than 13,000 square meters from an early stage. The future SRH campus in Neukölln offers space for 3,500 students from 100 nations. The university is expected to move in the 2023/2024 winter semester.
"I am very pleased that SRH is turning Neukölln into a university location. The SHED location and the mix of uses stand for innovation and, thanks to their diversity, fit into the Neukölln district. The building complex blends harmoniously into its urban surroundings," says Martin Hikel, district mayor of Neukölln.
Climate protection at SHED
The SHED also contributes to climate protection in Berlin in many ways. The specially adapted architecture of the roof construction ensures that the photovoltaic system installed on it is ideally positioned towards the south and can therefore cover almost the entire basic requirement of the building, depending on the weather. In addition, so-called prestressed concrete hollow core slabs were used in the construction, which use fewer resources than conventional concrete slabs, thus making a measurable contribution to climate protection.
The SHED is located at the future site NEUE UFER in a unique waterfront location on the Neuköllner Schifffahrtskanal.
"We were quickly convinced by the location on the shipping channel and recognized the great potential. However, when we bought the land and started the project, it was under difficult circumstances," adds Tassu Degen, managing partner of DERECO. "Corona-related uncertainty in the market was high and many players held back from large projects. Fortunately, we have a strong partner at our side in KLINGSÖHR, and were also able to overcome difficulties in the construction phase together."
The location offers perfect transport connections. The Sonnenallee S-Bahn station and several bus stops can be reached on foot in just a few minutes. The A100 motorway is close and BER airport can be reached quickly. The “Y-Trasse” cycle expressway is also nearby.
