Our goal is the sustainable development of livable urban neighbourhoods. For this purpose, we have bundled our expertise in new construction in an independent platform managed by the QUARTERBACK group.
‘By strategically grouping together project management, we’re creating a centre of excellence for new construction. This is our response to rising demand for sustainable, high-quality living space in German metropolitan areas.’
Chief Development Officer
When creating living space, we prioritise careful urban planning and climate-friendly construction. And we take the existing building culture into account. We’re also spelling it out in black and white: going forward, all of our new construction projects will be certified by the German Society for Sustainable Construction (DGNB). And we won’t settle for anything less than “Gold” status.
QUARTERBACK will implement all of Deutsche Wohnen’s new construction projects. We plan to build around 18,000 new residential units together in the years to come – with a specific focus on the Berlin, Dresden/Leipzig, Munich and Stuttgart metropolitan areas. Nine thousand residential units are planned for our portfolio alone. We are investing around EUR 4.3 billion in these. New construction projects are also planned in the Nursing and Assisted Living sector.
Selected new development
On plot by the banks of the river Dahme, over 150,000 m² in area, around 1,200 apartments are taking shape, split between 64 different blocks. As well as the apartments, a nursery is also being built in the Marienufer neighbourhood. The development also includes the old Villa Bolle owned by Carl Bolle, the founder and owner of the traditional dairy of the same name. Following a fire, the villa is now a ruin that Deutsche Wohnen plans to rebuild. In the new constructions, we are putting a great deal of emphasis on sustainability, as we are also seeking certification according to the criteria of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
Within walking distance of the Zwinger and the Semper Opera House a new residential neighbourhood is being built. In order to begin work on the new construction,
the previous buildings were demolished in a laborious process: two eight-storey office buildings and a low-rise building which was a canteen for VEB Energiebau Radebeul, as well as the bunker underneath. The large-scale commercial buildings are now being replaced by around 480 apartments and around 2,200 m² of commercial space. This project is also being built in line with the NaWoh evaluation system. Work on the foundations is due to start in the autumn. The first apartments should be ready to receive tenants by 2023.
Munich: HOFMARK am Olympiapark
HOFMARK is a new and vibrant neighbourhood, integrated into an urban environment with its own unique identity and exciting mix of living and working. The site, with its “campus” feel, will offer ultra-modern office spaces, 216 apartments, a nursery and vast green space.
Stuttgart: Rosenstein Mitte
The new Rosenstein Mitte development is a mix of offices, retail, privately financed homes and micro-apartments. A total of 262 apartments will be available in total. As part of the planned new district Rosensteinviertel in Stuttgart’s north, the project benefits from urban infrastructure and a mobility concept with outstanding public transport connections and an extensive cycle network. The property is surrounded by green space and the river Neckar is also just a few minutes away.
More new development projects
In cooperation with the Brandenburg capital and ProPotsdam, Deutsche Wohnen is building around 1,800 apartments on the former barracks in Krampnitz over the next few years. The sustainable neighbourhood is part of a new city district which will offer space for around 10,000 people to live and work. Potsdam town council is currently preparing the infrastructure concept, because the new neighbourhood is intended to have as few cars as possible.
The new Westend neighbourhood one of the biggest rental-property development projects in the Berlin district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf. It replaces an old, simpler development from the 1950s, which was originally built as temporary accommodation for members of the US and British armed forces. The project is planned to include 661 new apartments in total, 369 of them with controlled rents.
