Construction of new building complex at Europacity, Berlin Main Railway Station
A building complex for hotel and office use will be built directly next to the main station in Berlin by the end of 2019. The hotel building, which has already been leased to the Spanish hotel chain Barceló, is being built on the eastern part of the construction site by HG IMMOBILIEN. The four-star Barceló Hotel will offer 283 double rooms and suites. It will also include a publicly accessible conference center and an open dining and bar area. Grand Central Berlin, a nine-story multi-tenant office building approximately 22,600 m² (243,000 sq. ft.) gross floor space is being built by OVG Real Estate. While the first preparatory works were carried out on the site in 2015-16, construction has now started on the underground parking garage and the buildings on the 5,157 m² (55,509 sq. ft.) Invalidenstraße property between the Tiergartentunnel, Clara-Jaschke-Straße, and Emma-Herwegh-Straße directly adjacent to Berlin main station.
