Tiergarten: Buying a Flat in a Sought Part of Town
Berlin is considered one of the most popular metropolises in Europe: young, dynamic, international. In evidence of its appeal, the city reports positive demographic growth year after year. But as its population rises, so does demand for housing and specifically the desire for homeownership in a city you feel at home in. Now, as then, the demand is particularly keen for condominiums in the popular inner-city locations. One of these coveted districts is Berlin-Tiergarten where locals as well as new arrivals hunt for property, be it for owner-occupancy or as buy-to-let investment.
The acquisition of a condominium is still considered the optimal long-term investment with a view to a carefree retirement. Choosing the right part of Berlin for buying property is not easy. Each district, be it Tiergarten, Charlottenburg, Kreuzberg or Mitte has its distinct character. Seeing the condominiums in the building on the corner of Flotowstrasse and Bachstrasse in the Hansaviertel neighbourhood of Tiergarten could make it easier to decide.
The modern condominiums in this ensemble of buildings, raised in 1984, occupy an excellent location in the Hansaviertel quarter of Tiergarten district in the centre of Berlin’s inner city. As a residential area, Hansaviertel is defined by several architectural eras. The southern edge of the sub-district is fringed by Strasse des 17. Juni and dominated by campus buildings and several government authorities. The property with its apartments and their bespoke floor plans will appeal specifically to people who are looking for a flat in a location that is both central and quiet. Here, the modern way of life, easy accessibility through rapid transit and underground stations within walking distance combine with a balanced infrastructure.
Condominium for Sale: Tiergarten between Riverbank and Canalside
People seeking to buy a condominium in Berlin tend to have the choice between a period flat or a new-build one. It is not an obvious choice, because modern new-build apartments with bespoke floor plans are just as coveted as exclusive flats in historic buildings. Particularly popular are properties—intended either as buy-to-let investment or for owner-occupancy—located in the heart of the inner city. The ensemble of recently constructed buildings on the corner of Flotowstrasse 1 and Bachstrasse in Berlin-Tiergarten offers modern condominiums in a central location for either purpose.
Raised in 1984, the housing estate in the Hansaviertel neighbourhood of Tiergarten stands out with its conspicuous architecture. The bespoke design of façades and floor plans are the signature features of these residential buildings created for the 1979-1987 IBA Berlin International Building Exhibition. Available for sale now in this well-appointed property are flats of 2 to 4 bedrooms on 64 to 95 square metres of residential floor area arranged in unique floor plans. The large window expanses admit plenty of daylight into the interiors of these condominiums. The majority of the apartments feature conservatories whose floor-length windows make them the perfect place for spending cosy hours in the sunlight any time of year. Other apartments come with a balcony. The backside of the building features stylistically striking pergolas. All of the flats have tub-equipped bathrooms and separate kitchens while some also have extra guest WCs and storage rooms. Particularly convenient are the surface parking spots along the street frontage that are part of the property and secured by a barrier. They are reserved for residents of the building as private parking spaces.
