The sun is out, faces are aglow, and eyes sparkle with anticipation: On Friday, 08 June 2018, the Spandauer Ufer limited partnership invited the public to join it for a look back at the past year-and-a-half before looking forward at the years to come. In the former car wash, visitors ...
This time, the old car wash is opening its gates to the public: On Friday, the latest planning state for the urban quarter development will be presented for the first time since the start of the workshop process in November 2016.

At the Centre and Very Close to Things.
FINDING THE AMENITIES OF DAY-TO-DAY LIFE IN THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY. Having restaurants, cafés, gyms, schools, doctors’ offices and retailers within walking distance. Quickly letting or taking care of things during your lunch break. A well-functioning neighbourhood. Taking your coffee on the riverbank on Sunday morning – that is our idea of working and living in the city. That is precisely what SPANDAUER UFER is all about.
THE VISION: an urban neighbourhood with everything you need in life and direct access to downtown Berlin, one of Germany’s most fascinating metropolises.
Welcome to the New Spandau!
BERLIN IS GROWING, AND SPANDAU IS UP AND COMING! Embedded in Berlin’s green belt, conveniently connected to the inner city, and with a lengthy promenade along the River Havel, Spandau is a borough that has increasingly moved into focus lately.
The SPANDAUER UFER project is about to create an architectonic landmark in a prominent location that will symbolise the new spirit of the prospering, up-and-coming borough of Spandau.
Right on the riverbank, near the railway station, city hall, a shopping centre and the historic town centre, a new quarter is under development whose typical local mix of uses will combine residential, commercial, hotel, office accommodation with cafés, restaurants and retailers to ensure a high-quality living and working environment.
In urban-planning terms, the new quarter simultaneously closes a major gap in Spandau’s promenade along the River Havel to re-connect the historic town centre with the green riverbank and thereby to enhance urban life in the heart of the borough by adding a waterfront site.
Berlin’s West at its Finest.
LOCATED RIGHT ACROSS FROM SPANDAU’S RAILWAY STATION, SPANDAUER UFER HAS THE FINEST TRANSPORT CONNECTIVITY ANYWHERE IN WEST BERLIN, including rapid transit, underground and bus services – the perfect place for living and working.
Come on Foot Lest You Miss It.
THE MOST RENOWNED SIGHTS AND ATTRACTIONS OF THE BOROUGH ARE LOCATED IN THE IMMEDIATE VICINITY OF THE NEW QUARTER.
10 minutes to the Citadel
1 minute to train station
1 minute to Spandau Arcaden
1 minute to City hall
Landmark for Berlin’s Western Edge: the UFERTURM Tower.
ACROSS FROM CITY HALL AND HAVING THE SAME OVERALL HEIGHT (80 M), THE “SPANDAUER UFERTURM” TOWER WILL BE THE NEW QUARTER’S SHOWPIECE:
As dominant building envelope of the UFER complex, the tower will be the visible sign of the quarter’s urban character.
The expansive and tall first two floors will provide generous spaces for retail and gastronomy, supplemented by a balcony overlooking the River Havel and its promenade.
Above are altogether 19 office floors, the top ones with spectacular views. You can look as far as the top of Teufelsberg, the Citadel and across the Scharfe Lanke lakeside area toward Potsdam.
The upper floors overlook the quarter’s well-frequented square, the promenade and river, and the wider area beyond Spandau.
Intelligent, Integrated, Innovative. An Energy Concept Worthy of the Name.
THE SCENIC GREEN RIVERBANK IS NATURALLY ONE OF THE QUARTER’S MAJOR HIGHLIGHTS. BUT THE RIVER HAS SO MUCH MORE TO OFFER: WATER AS COMMODITY.
Consistent networking and a smart, integrated energy concept exploit the advantages of the riverside location in efficient and yet resource- conserving ways. For starters, the entire quarter with all its various use options and opportunities will be chilled to 100% using the water of the River Havel.
Inversely, the energy needed for heating is secured to about 40% by intelligently recovering heat from the wastewater pressure pipe. The remaining energy need is covered via the district heating connection. This way, water and greenery become definitive components for a sustainable, self-sufficient quarter. WELCOME TO THE FUTURE.
A Cosmopolitan Waterfront Affair.
THE HAVEL RIVERBANK AS DESIGN COMPASS:
Architecture and building envelope are aligned with lines of sight that open toward the Havel whose riverbank promenade serves as gateway to the quarter and as connection to the adjacent historic centre.
Analogously, the building façades pick up on the urban context and directly reference the borough of Spandau, its historic core and the Citadel: colours, materials and the variation of depths and ledges are reinterpreted in modern ways in the SPANDAUER UFER buildings.
More Green. More Room. More Possibilities.
FROM THE “GREEN LOUNGE” ON THE QUARTER’S SQUARE TO THE RIVERSIDE BALCONY AND ALL THE WAY TO THE PROMENADE, you will find intense greening with plenty of trees and shrubs everywhere on the grounds of SPANDAUER UFER.
The site is being turned into an urban sanctuary for relaxing, working out and just taking it easy.
A number of playing and leisure options, including a climbing wall, will make the quarter a new riverside hot spot for getting together.
Diversity for a Richly Varied Coexistence.
SPANDAUER UFER WILL BE OCCUPIED BY A WIDE MIX OF USES.
The floor space divides among the use types residential, office, hotel, retail, doctors, restaurants, cafés and – last but not least – a gym with a direct view of the river.
The 60-metre tower will be used as four-star hotel / longstay accommodation.
