Theodor-Loos-Weg: Foundation stone laid

At Theodor-Loos-Weg, where until recently a parking garage stood, there will be 116 affordable rental apartments between 45 and 120 m² by 2021. The price per square meter will be less than 10 Euros rent. The aim is to create a mixed tenant structure: singles should feel just as comfortable here as seniors or young families. On the ground floors are areas for commercial and catering provided. The tower and town house are connected by a pavilion. With a variety of community services such as concierge, library, communal kitchen, greenhouse, café and a cinema he is to become the central meeting place of the neighborhood.

 

There is currently a lot of social explosives in the topic of housing. The approximately 2,000 housing cooperatives in Germany defuse this conflict. The more than 5 million people living in the 2.2 million housing cooperatives are not only tenants, but also co-owners of the cooperative. You benefit from affordable rents, lifelong housing rights and social cohesion. The Civil Servants Association Berlin is one of the oldest cooperatives in Berlin and can look back on more than 115 years of history. The portfolio contains 8,300 apartments in which 17,000 people live. The cooperative model shows that safe and affordable housing, sustainability and social participation are possible for all. Self-determined, self-managed, self-responsible and architecturally high-quality - this is what the future of living can look like.
