The BUWOG SPEICHERBALLETT neighbourhood is growing: construction of the new HAVEL-SPEICHER has begun


The new BUWOG SPEICHERBALLETT neighbourhood is being constructed in Berlin-Spandau. With the HAVEL-SPEICHER element, BUWOG is now developing another 46 condominiums with sustainable qualities. Completion is scheduled for 2023.

As part of the new BUWOG SPEICHERBALLETT residential quarter, the exceptional new HAVEL-SPEICHER is being constructed on the banks of the Havel, completing the ensemble of listed warehouses. The original three historic warehouses were built in the 1930s and stood empty for years. While the two southern warehouses are currently being refurbished in accordance with preservation requirements, the northern, windowless warehouse was demolished. HAVEL-SPEICHER, a new build designed in close consultation with the state conservation authority, is being built in its place. The building is based on the historic cubature, thus the original external dimensions are faithfully reproduced. The language of the façade is also based on the two listed warehouses. The project is being developed by renowned architectural firm GFB Alvarez & Schepers of Berlin.

The ensemble is idyllically located on the water and surrounded by greenery. Along the banks of the Havel, a publicly accessible promenade beckons visitors for a jog or stroll.

Besides the preservation of historical monuments, the focus is also on sustainability: in the development of the neighbourhood, BUWOG is consistent in its focus on energy efficiency and the conservation of resources. Intelligent water management ensures that rainwater is collected in underground cisterns and can be used, for example, for watering gardens and flushing toilets. Photovoltaic systems on a number of rooftops generate electricity from solar power. Charging points for electric cars are installed in the underground car parks to encourage electric mobility. To ensure an intergenerational quality of life, the car-free neighbourhood will have barrier-free and landscaped outdoor areas featuring seating and play areas and – in a later construction phase – the neighbourhood's own daycare centre.

In the new HAVEL-SPEICHER, condominiums of two to four rooms and floor areas of approximately 50 to 102 square metres are being built. Whether a single-storey apartment or a maisonette on the top floor, all 46 barrier-free flats will have balconies, terraces or private gardens as well as large windows with direct, unobstructed views of the river Havel and Eiswerder island across the way.
