Echt Wedding

Fin de siècle in the heart of Wedding

This historic multi-tenant building dates back to 1900 and is located on Müllerstraße, 1 in the northern part of Berlin Mitte. Right next door: the hustle and bustle of the “Leo” square. That is the nickname given to Leopoldplatz, an extensive 4.5-hectare square that was established around the Old Nazareth Church built between 1832 and 1835. Müllerstraße – named after some 25 mills that used to be located here – is the central traffic axis around Leopoldplatz and the main shopping street in the district of Wedding.

Shops, U-Bahn stations and plenty of cafés and restaurants are within walking distance. So are the green spaces of the expansive Schillerpark. The refurbishment will bring the park even closer: a new pedestrian path through the charming courtyards of the property will connect the green area, a protected garden monument, with Müllerstraße. The ensemble will hence be integrated into the surrounding urban network.

The five-storey property features a prestigious red brick façade with decorative white bay windows and balconies. Room heights of over 3.20 m, beautiful, vaulted ceilings and other well-preserved details combine fin-de-siècle charm with modern finishings. The plans envisage an uncon- ventional language of form and materials along with a conscious, respectful approach towards the historic building.
