Things were more colorful and a bit louder than usual at Wohnpark Mariendorf – the State-owned housing company Gewobag celebrated the completion of 137 additional apartments and four commercial units with a neighborhood party. In doing so, an extensive district development of Gewobag was completed.
The residential park Mariendorf was modernized between 2016 and 2019 and transformed into a “Smart City”. Subsequently, three new residential buildings with 137 apartments were built from 2020, which complement the existing residential park with target group-oriented offers.
Snezana Michaelis, member of the Gewobag board:
“We are pleased to be actively helping shape our city for the future with new affordable housing. The topics of new construction, neighborhood and mobility are our focus - the Mariendorf residential park makes an important contribution to ensuring that housing remains affordable for all Berliners: Gewobag offers around 50% of the new apartments at subsidized rents. Cooperation with a social organization ensures that the offer to our tenants is expanded. This enables the tenants of our existing district to live independently in their traditional surroundings for a particularly long time.”
The residential park is located on Rathausstrasse in Mariendorf, in the district of Tempelhof-Schoeneberg. Within three years, Gewobag has renovated the existing neighborhood with 734 apartments and created an additional 73 apartments by adding more stories. The comprehensive district development includes an energy supply via a combined heat and power plant and photovoltaic system, charging infrastructure for electric cars and the company’s own car-sharing product “SpreeAuto”. The outdoor facilities were extensively redesigned and offer a very good quality of stay for the neighborly togetherness.
