Berlin Properties Spandau 2024

Spandau is a district with an industrial past and a promising future. The symbiosis of land reserves, jobs, and important future hubs like TXL Urban Tech Republic are solid location qualities. Spandau is increasingly taking on an important role as a link to the northwest in the Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan region. A look at the other side of the map with Köpenick in the southeast of Berlin shows how fantastically urban economic areas can develop. Those who seize the opportunity now can purchase an apartment in Spandau for an average price of 3,940 EUR/m².

Berlin-Spandau

Spandau 2.0: The Phoenix of Berlin's Northwest

Forget the old industrial shell: Spandau is about to make an extraordinary comeback. Wedged into the north-west of Berlin and closely linked to the thriving Brandenburg region, this Berlin district is turning its apparent disadvantages into advantages. The lack of official "future locations" has not stopped it from becoming a future magnet for investment and innovation.

This is not a slow development, but a complete reinvention. Vacant industrial sites are transforming into chic residential neighbourhoods, and derelict land holds plenty of potential. Gartenfelder Island is the latest flagship of this transformation, shining a spotlight on an often overlooked part of the city. The closure of TXL Airport has further driven this metamorphosis and set the stage for major projects that will redefine Spandau's role in Berlin's future.

Family Home Market in Spandau Nearly Matches the Volume of Apartment Market

In the past 12 months, we have recorded approximately 970 property listings in this segment. The current average asking price stands at approximately 4,500 EUR/m². The price correction compared to the same period last year is -9.20 %. This can be attributed not only to the high interest rates challenging many young families but also to the often basic technical condition of the homes. In the new construction segment, catalog homes are currently offered at an average price of around 5,000 EUR/m². This narrows the price gap between old and new buildings, giving a slight advantage to new, energy-efficient constructions.

Trend

After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the district impatiently awaited the forecasted economic upswing, which is now fully underway due to the revitalization of large areas, the pending repurposing of the TXL airport, and the development of the Siemens Campus. What was once undervalued as industrial wasteland is now viewed as urban development opportunities and being re-conceptualized. Old industrial areas are being repurposed for residential use. The opening of the Havel riverbanks for large housing projects is just the beginning. In addition, Spandau offers a highly attractive counterpoint to the increasing densification within the Berlin Ring. Such an abundance of greenery, water, and recreational value is rare in Berlin. The trend towards remote working will play an important role in Spandau's development: living green while working remotely. Spandau is well on its way to expanding its role as a popular local recreation area in this regard.

Early adopters who invest in Spandau at attractive prices are likely to benefit from this in the future.

Apartment buildings in Berlin Spandau

Spandau is shedding its image as a bargain district for rental houses and is undergoing a calm development of purchase prices that is appropriate to local population and neighborhood structures. In central Spandau and the surrounding neighborhoods, prices in the construction year class from 1900 to 1949 are currently still the highest. Owners of old buildings in good condition were recently able to register noticeable price increases. Currently, both asking prices and notarized purchase prices are declining due to interest rates. We recommend timely rent development for Spandau to compensate for any factor dips that may arise.

Migration

There are still no signs of the large projects in Spandau and Reinickendorf-Tegel being measurable in the migration flows. The growth of the district, however, is already being driven more by domestic inflows than by external movements. The large projects at Kurt-Schumacher-Damm (Reinickendorf) and on Gartenfelder Insel will be communal. Suburban Spandau is recording losses into its suburban area. Most of the departures occurred in 2017 to the Havelland district.
