Georg-Knorr-Park, a former industrial and production site in Berlin’s Marzahn district, is to be transformed into a lively residential and commercial neighbourhood. The 9-hectare site, which is characterised by an ensemble of heritage buildings surrounded by urban infrastructure and commercial industry, will encompass 152,000 square metres, including 1,400 affordable rental apartments and 90,000 square metres of office and commercial space.

Christoph Felger, partner and design director at David Chipperfield Architects Berlin, says:
“We architects have been discussing together with clients and politicians the urgency of affordable housing for years here in Berlin. I am therefore very pleased that with the concept for the Georg-Knorr-Park we are able to make a 250,000 square metre contribution to this very important social building task.”

David Chipperfield says, “The conversion of Georg-Knorr-Park is a great opportunity to build a significant new residential quarter in Berlin’s Marzahn district providing not only affordable apartments of high quality but also an environment of well-planned open spaces and a sense of community.”
