People drawn to the metropolis and looking for a dynamic, creative and multicultural life should look no further than Berlin’s borough of Neukölln.
Located in the southern part of the city, it borders on the boroughs of Schöneberg-Tempelhof, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg and Treptow-Köpenick and on the state of Brandenburg in the south. While a sprawling borough, “Neukölln” is commonly understood to refer to the vibrant, densely built-up northern part that straddles the boundary to Kreuzberg, an equally lively district. The shared characteristics have caused people to coin the portmanteau term “Kreuzkölln” and it captures the spirit of the quarter around Silbersteinstrasses as well. What transpires here is more than your standard urban lifestyle: the Arab takeaway shop rubs shoulders with creative media start-ups, the vegan store coexists with the traditional butcher shop, and the jazz club is every bit a part of it as the puppet theatre museum. Seeming opposites are peacefully reconciled to their differences. Diversity is alive and well in the heart of Berlin!
The architecture of Neukölln is a similarly motley affair. Belle Époque buildings in the northern part alternate with the tower blocks of Gropiusstadt and family-home housing estates all the way in the south. Historic and modern façades define the diversity of the borough in the same way that its residents with their various nationalities liven up the streets and squares.
Old and New in a Charming Blend
Neukölln has evolved in every way into a trendy district and simultaneously preserves its cultural and urban planning traditions. This special character trait is uniquely reflected in the striking new building on Silbersteinstrasse. At the site between the rapid-transit stations “Hermannstrasse” and “Neukölln,” modern architecture is under development that signifies a new sense of home: Spacious, generous dimensions paired with all amenities.
The conspicuous multi-unit dwelling being raised here will stand out due to its timeless elegance, and will provide accommodation for singles, couples and families who wish to make a home for themselves in a popular, trendsetting metropolis. Having a flat in Neukölln is more than just have a place to stay. It is a way of life that kicks in when you close the front door behind you and set out to explore one quarter after another.
