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.

Size: approx. 16 hectares

Preparation time: 2007 to 2012 including completed development

Construction time: 2012 to 2020

Number of units:

  • 1,166 residential units, of which 60 are subsidised housing units
  • plus 386 student dormitory places

Building owners:

  • 7 private investors/developers
  • 4 housing associations
  • 3 municipal housing associations with a total of 5 sites
  • 1 private building group

  • High-quality residential streets and mixed traffic areas, parking for residents mainly in underground garages (621) and above ground (101)
  • approx. 120 parking spaces in public streets

Residential quarter: Wohnen am Campus II

In 2014, the residential quarter “Wohnen am Campus” could be expanded by 2.7 hectares, as the adjacent area was converted from a commercial to a residential area. The “Wohnen am Campus II” neighbourhood was awarded to the municipal housing association HOWOGE.

A total of 613 flats (including 108 micro-apartments for students), an underground car park with 151 parking spaces as well as 26 above-ground parking spaces, a day-care centre with approx. 75 places and commercially usable areas are to be built.


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.

VivaCity Adlershof

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.

Temporary accommodation

The six residential buildings of Helm-Projekt Adlershof GmbH & Co. KG, the “Medienfenster” project and the IGAFA guest houses provide 337 mainly temporary apartments.

Housing project at Eisenhutweg

On the 3.2-hectare site between Eisenhutweg and the A113 motorway, 580 flats and a day-care centre with approx. 70 places are to be built by the private KW-Development GmbH. The development concept is characterised by a seven-storey noise-resistant building along the motorway, urban villas and four- to six-storey residential 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. 30 percent of the flats will be rent-controlled. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2021.

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.

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.
