The Upper Eastside Berlin stands on one of Berlin's most prominent street corners, where Friedrichstrasse meets Unter den Linden. It offers upmarket residential and commercial space right where the heart of Berlin has been beating for the last 100 years, where the vibrant bustle of Germany's capital city merges with the charm of its international guests to create an atmosphere of excitement and inspiration.
With their design for the Upper Eastside Berlin, the architectural offices von Gerkan, Marg und Partner (gmp), Kahlfeldt and Burelli strived to retain the unique character of this locality while at the same time providing a leading-edge place to work. Their intensive collaboration gave rise to five highly individual buildings that together make up a harmonious singularity. The ensemble has 18,000 square metres of exclusive office space and 200 underground parking spaces.
In December 2013, the Upper Eastside Berlin was awarded the BREEAM certification with top grades in the categories Building (very good) and Operation (good).
BREAAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is the oldest and most widespread certification system for sustainable building. BREEAM has been evaluating the planning, execution and usage phase and the entire life cycle of buildings since 2008.
