Project description

The approx. 3,615 m² large property is developed with an existing building, which was opened in 1964. The existing building will be replaced by a new building by 2020. The new building will complete the traditional city block at the corner of Kleist- / Keithstr. as a striking structure. Three building sections will be created, which will be connected to each other via a large-volume, fully glazed foyer. The lateral building sections in Kleiststr. and Keithstr. take over the eaves heights of the adjacent buildings typical for the location. A high-rise building with a height of approx. 52 metres will be positioned at the intersection of the formerly planned city motorway (Lietzenburger Str. / An der Urania) in the context of the other individual buildings. The office building will provide space for a total of 380 employees of the DGB and other tenants on a gross floor area of approx. 22,000 m². In addition to the offices, multifunctional event rooms will be created and with the foyer an open space for meetings.
