Groundbreaking ceremony for the ZENTRUM FÜR ZUKUNFTSTECHNOLOGIEN [Center for Future Technologies] in Wildau
With the ground-breaking ceremony on November 2, the start signal was given for the construction of the ZENTRUM FÜR ZUKUNFTSTECHNOLOGIEN [Center for Future Technologies] on Ludwig-Witthöft-Straße in Wildau and construction work for what is now the fifth Technology Center in the Wildau Technology and Science Park can now start.
The four-story building complex with approximately 7,000 square meters of office and hall space will be ready for occupancy in the second half of 2020. Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Dahme-Spreewald mbH is investing around 20 million euros in the project as a wholly owned subsidiary of the District of Dahme-Spreewald.
For Economic Affairs Officer Heiko Jahn, the ground-breaking ceremony is further proof of the progressing and gratifying development in the Wildau Science and Technology Park. “With the ZENTRUM FÜR ZUKUNFTSTECHNOLOGIEN [Center for Future Technologies], up to 200 high-quality jobs will once again be created, giving us an additional boost as a technology location in the area around BER,” says Heiko Jahn.
The Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft Dahme-Spreewald mbH will again prove its efficiency as the owner of the property. “I’m pleased that the urban development gap in the center of the area has now been closed and that the location is additionally enhanced by an architecturally sophisticated new building,” says managing director Gerhard Janßen. The ZENTRUM FÜR ZUKUNFTSTECHNOLOGIEN [Center for Future Technologies] will ideally complement the space offered by the existing technology centers and provide special advantages given its direct proximity to the Wildau Technical University of Applied Sciences.
As a general planner, the internationally renowned ASSMANN BERATEN + PLANEN AG came out on top. They developed an innovative property that meets the highest standards of high-tech production and service, but that also integrates as well as possible into the given structure of the existing buildings. “Generously dimensioned production halls and attractive office space with functional and flexible floor plans create optimal spaces for the individual needs of future tenants,” explains Wolfgang Dorsch.
Each leased unit will be self-sufficient. A continuous strip of light from windows on the outer facade and a nicely designed inner courtyard will create particularly bright rooms. Future users, such as FTT Florida Turbine Technologies, have also been involved in the planning process.
