Housing projects in the development area
Around 6,000 people now live in the Science City Adlershof. You can find an overview of the housing projects that have been completed, are under construction and are planned for the location here:
The flats are let by the project partners themselves. Currently, the majority of the flats are rented.
Please contact the housing associations, housing cooperatives or private investors directly for rental enquiries.
Residential quarter: Wohnen am Campus II / HOWOGE rental housing construction
In 2014, the residential quarter “Wohnen am Campus I” could be expanded by 2.7 hectares, as the adjacent area was converted from commercial to residential. The “Wohnen am Campus II” neighbourhood was assigned to the municipal housing company HOWOGE.
The construction of the flats has been finished since October 2022 – the quarter is completed and almost fully let.
Of the total of 612 one- to five-room flats, 252 were built as subsidised housing, 107 flats are furnished micro-apartments for students and trainees.
A daycare centre for 90 children will open in early 2023. In addition, there is a launderette, a café, a mini-market with a parcel delivery point, a sushi to go shop and a driving school in the neighbourhood.
Detailed information can be found on the HOWOGE website.
Residential quarter: Wohnen am Campus I
At the end of the 2000s, the urban structure of the development area was revised and the residential area “Wohnen am Campus I” was planned. The first flats became available successively from 2014 onwards during the ten-year planning and realisation process. On the area north of Rudower Chaussee, between Groß-Berliner Damm and Karl-Ziegler-Straße, 17 residential projects were built with a total of 1,166 residential units and 386 student housing places. The last project was completed in summer 2020.

The Johannisgärten residential area on a former Berlin Chemie site was completed in 2021. HOWOGE had 20 residential buildings with 314 rental flats built on the almost 26,000 m² site, a large day care centre with around 25 places, three commercial units, a DHL packing station and a parking garage with 121 parking spaces.
There is no car traffic in the residential area itself; the settlement area character of the two- to five-storey houses mediates between the single-family houses on Melli-Beese-Strasse and the commercial buildings on Segelfliegerdamm. The special thing about the Johannisgärten: they were built using two construction systems. Six houses in environmentally friendly timber hybrid construction, 13 in solid construction and one house in a combination of both types of construction.
Rental is only possible through the housing association HOWOGE.
The VivaCity Adlershof project was built on a 2.25-hectare mixed-use area at the Straße am Flugplatz/Eisenhutweg roundabout. In 2019, 136 flats, a retirement home with 103 places and a daycare centre with 129 places run by the Johanniter Foundation, retail, shops and commercial space were completed in direct proximity to the Johannisthal landscape park.
Living near the Landscape Park
Between 2004 and 2009, single-family homes with 386 residential units were built to the west of the “Flugfeld Johannisthal” nature and landscape park for people who appreciate a quiet and green living environment without having to forego proximity to the city centre and a good infrastructure. Here, both individual builders and building groups found appropriate space to realise their dreams.
Residential projects under construction
On the 3.2-hectare site between Eisenhutweg and the A113 motorway, the private KW-Development GmbH is building 583 flats and a day-care centre with approx. 106 places, which will be handed over to a municipal housing association after completion.
The development concept is characterised by a seven-storey noise-resistant urban structure along the motorway, urban villas staggered to four storeys towards Eisenhutweg and four to six-storey apartment blocks connected by a green corridor. Car traffic is kept out of the inner areas. Due to noise-robust construction and the goal of creating affordable housing, a complex is being created here that has inner-city quality in its structural density. Around 59 per cent of the flats will be funded by housing subsidies from the state of Berlin.
The residential project is scheduled for completion in 2026.

New urban quarter at Segelfliegerdamm
Over the next 10 years, a new urban quarter with 1,800 flats and commercial facilities will be built on the site of the former “VEB Kühlautomat” between Segelfliegerdamm, Groß-Berliner Damm and the Johannisthal Landscape Park.
History in a nutshell
Most Johannisthal residents probably associate the area on Segelfliegerdamm with VEB Kühlautomat. Between 1950 and 1996, refrigerators, cooling systems for ships and diesel engines for railway and shipbuilding were produced there. But as early as 1909, the entrepreneur and visionary Arthur Müller (1871-1935) opened Berlin’s first civilian motorised airfield here on former forest land. Later, he also had aircraft manufactured here by the Luftverkehrsgesellschaft, which was founded in 1912. A total of 5,640 aircraft left the hangars not far from today’s Segelfliegerdamm.
