6B47 buys land in Berlin's Europacity
6B47 Germany GmbH has acquired a 1,650 m² (18,000 sq. ft.) property in Europacity on the south side of Berlin's city harbor district. The project developer will realize about 4,350 m² (47,000 sq. ft.) of new living space on the Heidestraße in the immediate vicinity of the Berlin-Spandau shipping channel. The site is one of several in an approved redevelopment plan for a site covering some 2.3 ha (5.6 acres).
The plans are for the site to be used mainly for residential purposes, but daycare center, small-scale retail, and other shops and restaurants will also be opened. The Europaviertel itself is one of the largest city quarters in Berlin. It is located between Nordhafen, Heidestraße, and Humboldthafen. Berlin's main railway station is within walking distance, making the area ideally connected to both local and long-distance transport.
