Here, as well as on the approximately 45 hectare area of the Schöneweide marshalling yard ("Gleislinse"), which was closed in 1998, the Science and Technology Park has ideal space for further growth.

Adlershof is not just a place of work. Single-family homes, rented and owner-occupied apartments, townhouses and student apartments have been built. At the end of 2021, around 4,800 people were already living in the Adlershof development area. Further residential developments are currently in construction.
