Berlin Properties Marzahn-Hellersdorf 2024

Berlin is discussing about skyscrapers. Marzahn and Hellersdorf have them. The negative image has long been over, the silhouette is cleverly staged and many new district centres have arisen.


From trash to trend

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the image of the prefab housing developments was very poor and anchored with the name Marzahn-Hellersdorf, even though the large housing developments made only part of the building structure in the district. That's history. Active neighbourhood management, uninterrupted modernisation and the creation of green spaces and active district centres have triggered structural and sustainable changes. Today, the district benefits from its heterogeneous development structure of prefabricated buildings and single-family house locations. The green centre between the two districts will be formed by the park of the International Garden Exhibition IGA in 2017, with cable car. GEWOBAG has created a tourist attraction with the Skywalk on one of the 70 metre high skyscraper towers. The formerly grey facades are used for artworks and poems to reflect the vivid cultural exchange in the neighbourhood.

Marzahn-Hellersdorf has one of the largest so called "future locations" in Berlin with the 90 ha area of the CleanTech Business Park. Inner-city areas for manufacturing industry are limited in Berlin and will accelerate the positive development of the district. The CleanTech Business Park is primarily aimed at companies from the recycling, water industry and chemical industry. Knorr-Bremse Aktiengesellschaft produces braking systems for rails and commercial vehicles. The company has been listed on the stock exchange since 2018 and has just over 1,000 employees in Berlin. "Marzahn Impuls" is another commercial hub with various industries and training locations. Companies and residents feel a strong bond to the district and the demand for high-quality housing will grow with the growth of the commercial locations. Besides family houses, condominiums are the trend segment for the next few years.

Apartment buildings

The market for apartment buildings in Marzahn-Hellersdorf is smaller than in other districts. House sizes are mostly between 300 and 400 m². Nevertheless, the price dynamics are great and have a clear upward trend with interesting entry-level prices.

New construction Marzahn-Hellersdorf

GDR blocks and Prussian villages? Marzahn-Hellersdorf is much more. More and more elegant and modern architecture is now appearing in the characteristic Marzahn high-rise silhouette from the 1970s in the GDR, with its approximately 100,000 apartments. We have researched over 40 new construction projects since 2019, with construction sums ranging from "a few" million to around 60 million.

In Lion-Feuchtwanger-Strasse, EUROBODEN is currently developing a remarkable project. Remarkable because the project developer stands for architecturally extraordinary and elaborate designs. The residential complex consisting of two six-story row buildings looks remarkably like buildings of the French modernism. The construction sum for this flagship project amounts to 25 million euros for around 120 residential units. 

At the construction site along Kastanienallee, GESOBAU is building a residential quarter with around 450 apartments in the first phase. Later, up to 1,500 apartments are to be developed here. 

The vibrant construction activity in Marzahn-Hellersdorf indicates that a paradigm shift is taking place, based on the needs of the metropolitan society in the decades to come. 

Neighbourhoods in Marzahn-Hellersdorf

Marzahn-Hellersdorf is on the one hand characterized by its large settlements from the 1970s to the 1980s, and on the other hand by its huge single-family house quarters in the immediate vicinity and in the south and east of the district, in Biesdorf, Kaulsdorf, Mahlsdorf and Hellersdorf. The slab buildings were privatised only occasionally, which explains the very small existing housing market when measured against the available space. The focus of demand in both subdistricts is on the family house market. Measured in terms of area, the house market is also limited and is unable to meet the high demand. The quarters in Hellersdorf are now expanding beyond the Berlin border into the nearby Märkisch-Oderland.
