Traces and Tracks of Past, Future and Future Past.
Tracks is located between Bülowstrasse and Schöneberger Ufer righ on the border to Kreuzberg and Tiergarten. Traces of the old, magnificent pre-War Potsdamer Strasse are omnipresent and create a fascinating contrast to its new and ever evolving face. The property itself shows clear Bauhaus aesthetics and is located right between creative offices, art galleries, cafés and the newly designed Park am Gleisdreieck. Its minimalist look celebrates the fusion of artistic design and industrial production – and is thus emblematic of the whole neighbourhood.
As Walter Gropius once stated:
“Only perfect harmony in both the technical function, as well as in the proportions of forms can produce beauty.“
Aesthetics & Function
Tracks is great opportunity – as both a domicile and as a capital investment. The apartment building was built in 1968, in a modern, functionally aesthetic Bauhaus style and boasts apartments ranging in size between a humble 29 m² and more spacious 70 m². Tracks offers a moderate pricing structure, which promises a steady increase in value. All the flats are in a well-maintained state and some flats have recently been refurbished. The refurbishments included new bathrooms and new electric wiring.
The façade has also recently undergone renovations, which included heat insulation, new windows and refurbished balconies. A new intercom system has been installed and the public stairwells were painted. The majority of the windows the stairwells are plastic-insulated and equipped with window rebate ventilators. There are also some wooden composite windows on the courtyard side. The property boasts gas central heating and the hot water supply is decentralized. The whole property now has a Grade C energy efficiency rating after being modernized.
A Neighbourhood to Explore
A derelict urban wasteland for decades and now a green oasis in the midst of the urban jungle. Spacious meadows in the Park am Gleisdreieck invite you to kick back, take a deep breath and linger. This unique and grand space allows beach volleyball players, picnic fans and nature explorers, skaters and runners time to themselves and for their passions. Start the day with yoga at dawn, have a game of ping pong later or play boules with friends in the shade, while the children play on the playground. These numerous possibilities make the Park am Gleisdreieck a hotspot between Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg and Tempelhof-Schöneberg
On an Artistic Path
No other part of Berlin has changed as much in recent history, as the neighbourhood around Potsdamer Strasse, which was once notorious for its dubious reputation. In addition to the numerous hip cafés and galleries, creative offices and new building developments now conquer the space between Schöneberger Ufer and Bülowstrasse.
The day begins with hearty breakfast and the smell of freshly roasted coffee beans at the Café Zimt & Zucker (1) located on Potsdamer Strasse. A 15-minute walk away, the Winterfeldtmarkt (2) offers the flair of a Mediterranean market as well as local produce and a broad range of delicatessen. The Restaurant Rocket & Basil (3) offers a culinary highlights with oriental notes, before Prometeo (4) takes you deep into South of Italy with its authentic Neapolitan pizza. For a night cap we head back to Potsdamer Strasse to classic West-Berlin feature – the Victoria Bar (5).
