Europacity – a long orphaned piece of Berlin history – is being brought to life. Where express trains departed in the 19th century and steam locomotives were filled with water and coal, a completely new urban quarter for around 16,500 people is now being built on an area of around 40 hectares north of Berlin’s main train station. Climate-friendly and sustainable, green and generous. For people in all stages of life.

The proportions of this development area are enormous: Europacity is seven times the size of the Potsdamer Platz. The new urban quarter will have a major impact on Berlin and be of relevance for Berlin as a whole. Four different planning areas with different focal points of use ensure that architectural and design diversity is achieved.

One of the four planning areas of Europacity is the Heidestrasse quarter, which will include apartments, office spaces, a hotel, and a daycare centre, as well as restaurants and retail – and will thus play an important role in the life of the entire new urban quarter. Along Heidestraße, Europacity’s central thoroughfare, stores will offer everything you need for everyday life, while restaurants, cafés, and bars will create a big-city atmosphere at the new neighborhood squares. The Heidestrasse quarter is creating a new neighbourhood – for Europacity and beyond.


What would Berlin be without its neighbourhoods! They are the small oases that offer everything that makes this city unique and vibrant. This is where life happens and people meet. Where we can not only live, but also be human. This will be the Heidestrasse neighbourhood: a neighbourhood full of liveliness, culture, and joie de vivre. With people who feel comfortable and who live their lives here. Neighbors who feel at home here and make the neighbourhood their own.
