Thomas Bergander, Managing Director of Quartier Heidestrasse GmbH, explains at the conclusion of the contract: “We are very pleased that SAP will move into our QH Track office building in Quartier Heidestrasse. This decision will create a digital hub here that not only fits perfectly into our concept of a smart and digital quarter, but much more.

“SAP loves Berlin. The capital and its tech ecosystem are indispensable for us and our customers. This applies both to the innovations of the future and to Berlin as an important job market. Berlin has a charisma that extends beyond Europe like no other capital city,” says Jürgen Müller, SAP’s Chief Technology Officer and Berlin resident by choice.

Michael Müller, Governing Mayor of Berlin, emphasizes: “SAP has played a key role in shaping Berlin’s transformation since reunification and its development into a digital capital in recent years, and has grown steadily here. The decision to develop a joint campus in the Heidestrasse neighborhood is fantastic news for employees in Berlin and the city as a whole, and a strong signal for Berlin as a city of science and research. I am very pleased about the new centre for the digital economy in the heart of the city and wish SAP all the best for the project.”

OPTIMALLY NETWORKED: SMART TECHNOLOGIES FOR A NEIGHBORHOOD WITH COMFORT
