Apartments for every generation: launch of the new building project "BUWOG Regattahof"


With the "BUWOG Regattahof" residential project, a new section is being built in the 52° Nord quarter of southeast Berlin. BUWOG will build a total of 77 condominiums for various phases of life here by 2021.

"BUWOG Regattahof" consists of three buildings and is located on Regattastrasse in the district of Grünau. The ensemble is being built in a classic, monolithic design, with the façades partly clad in larch. All three buildings have staggered floors on which the apartments benefit from rooftop terraces.

In the midst of the ensemble there is a courtyard garden, a contemporary interpretation of the courtyard idea. The courtyard garden has an interesting terraced common area with a private playground and opportunities for meeting, communicating and for urban gardening. Alexander Happ, managing director of BUWOG Bauträger GmbH: "We're building a home for a variety of housing styles and generations who live together with, not next to, one another".

The mix of condominiums with one to three rooms of approximately 28 sqm to 98 sqm is aimed at opening up the new construction project to a wide range of target groups. For example, the micro-apartments being built are well suited for students, singles or young professionals, but also for single elderly people who want to move into a small apartment. These micro-apartments are distinguished by an intelligent layout, which makes the units look significantly larger, thus also attractive as an investment. The classic two-room apartments in Regattahof feature layouts with more floor space and combined living and dining areas, which are suitable for couples. The generous three-room apartments, in turn, are especially appropriate for families and their additional demand for space.

All of the apartments have balconies or terraces. At "BUWOG Regattahof" as well as in the entire sustainable quarter of 52° Nord there are parking spaces with charging stations to purchase, if desired. There is also a free station in the quarter.

"BUWOG Regattahof" is the latest segment in the 52° Nord district. On a 100,000 sqm site in Treptow-Köpenick, BUWOG is building a sustainable quarter with around 1,000 rental apartments, condominiums and a daycare centre. A 600 metre-long promenade planned specifically by BUWOG runs along the banks of the Dahme. At the heart of the quarter is the 6,000 sqm pool, in which the rainwater from the surrounding houses flows and is biologically cleansed with substrate filters and lateral vegetation. The water improves the microclimate and forms a natural biotope. Local heat is generated decentrally in the quarter in a combined heat and power plant with a primary energy factor of zero.


BUWOG now looks back on 68 years of expertise in the residential property business. In Germany BUWOG Bauträger GmbH is currently focused on Berlin, Hamburg and Leipzig in the area of property development and has a development pipeline of around 10,000 residential units. BUWOG is a subsidiary of Vonovia SE, Europe's leading residential company, which is located in Bochum (Germany).
