BUILDING PERMISSION GRANTED FOR OFFICE ENSEMBLE "QH TRACK" IN THE QUARTIER HEIDESTRASSE

Berlin, May 28, 2019. Development in the Heidestrasse quarter is picking up speed rapidly: Planning permission has been granted for the planned QH Track office ensemble. In total, QH Track comprises approximately 104,000 square feet of office space. With the building permit, construction on the project has started as planned.

  • 104,000 square feet of smart and flexible office space is planned in QH Track
  • In the future, companies of all sizes will find space here – from coworking communities and start-ups to large corporations with their own address formation
  • Construction started; completion planned from 2021 to 2023

QH Track is one of the largest construction projects for a contiguous office ensemble in the capital city of Berlin. Nine different buildings are planned, which, thanks to their different shapes, offer the possibility of creating individual and prestigious office addresses in the heart of Berlin. In the future, the office buildings will accommodate companies of all sizes – from coworking communities and start-ups to large corporations. QH Track provides space for a total of approximately 8,500 workstations.

The design for QH Track comes from the Swiss architectural firm EM2N. The design calls for five office towers with varying heights between 11 and 14 stories. They are connected by four office buildings, each six stories high, resulting in an elongated and varied office block. The architecture is characterized by a clear appearance, with generous glass surfaces providing optimal lighting for all office areas.

Quartier Heidestrasse is a forward-looking neighborhood that aims to make life and work more pleasant and easier for people through the use of smart technologies. All buildings in the entire quarter will be equipped with intelligent technologies and consistently networked with each other – this is unique in Germany. Each building has its own digital nervous system for controlling such things as heating, lighting, elevators, air conditioning, the occupancy of parking spaces in the underground garage, and the booking of meeting rooms.

QH Track’s special features also include a sky bar overlooking the city atop one of the towers. There will be 460 parking spaces in an underground garage, including one in four with an electric charging station.

The Heidestrasse neighborhood is located north of Berlin’s main train station and is one of the city’s major development areas. Here, on an area of around 8.5 hectares, an urban mix is being created with modern residential and office buildings, restaurants and retail spaces, public squares and green areas. Several construction phases are planned with a total of 159,500 square meters of office and commercial space and around 920 apartments.
The foundation stone for the QH Core local shopping center was already laid in September 2018, and construction is already on the third Upper Stories floor. In January 2019, the district issued a building permit for the QH Spring subproject with 258 rental apartments, including 215 subsidized ones, a daycare center with 130 places, and a hotel.

QH Track’s nine buildings are now being constructed in stages starting this year. The completion of the buildings will take place from 2021, the overall completion of the office ensemble is planned for the year 2023
