The residential complex featuring studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments will be built near Berlin’s famous Bronholmer Strasse, a street the border-crossing at which was the first to open back to the time of West and East Berlin reunification.

All the apartments have a terrace or a balcony and open layouts of kitchens equipped with cook tops and ovens, exhaust hoods, refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines. Kitchen furniture may be selected to fit the design concept.

The apartments will be furnished with sanitaryware by well-known manufacturers, laminated or natural oak parquet flooring, and tile finishing in the bathrooms.

Location and transportation

The residential complex is located on the borderline between Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg. The residential complex lies within an 8-minute walk from the railway station Bornholmer Strasse of the Berlin S-Bahn and within a 13-minute ride form Berlin’s Central Railway Station (Berlin Hauptbahnhof). 

Mitte (which means “middle” in German) is the geographical and political centre of Berlin. Mitte has mature infrastructure and many sights to see, such as Potsdamer Platz, Reichstag or Parliament Building, and Brandenburg Gate. The numerous sites within several kilometres around the residential complex are enough to build the cultural heritage of a city. 


There are many things to do and see in Prenzlauer Berg too. 

Alongside with the historic street Bornholm Strasse, there is

  • Mauerpark near here — a beloved place for long walks to admire the cherry blossoms of the sakura trees that were presented by Japan after reunification of Germany. Farmers’ markets are held weekly in the vicinity.
  • Schönhauser Allee is high street in Prenzlauer Berg and a focal point for fashionable shops and cafés in agreeable 19-century buildings. 
  • The Kulturbrauerei is an ancient brewery complex that occupies an entire neighbourhood and is now turned into a cultural centre for people of all ages.

The residential complex Bornholm is located close enough to vibrant life, yet at a certain distance from it to ensure a safe night’s sleep.

Surrounding infrastructure

There are kindergartens, schools, and minimarkets within a walking distance from the residential complex. There are cafés and restaurant, pharmacies, a gas station, a Lidl supermarket, and the Charité hospital near the residential complex. The street is lined with low-rise developments built in 1960s–1970s with a small quiet green area in between. 


The six-storeyed building will be a development with a modern design concept. A white and black exterior of the plaster façade will be well-balanced and complemented by the balconies with glass railings. French windows will be imbuing the apartments with fresh air and sunlight and will add an elegant, neat, and ethereal touch to the building exterior.

Private amenities

There will be bicycle parking areas designated for the building. Retail and office spaces are designed on the ground floor, so residents will be enjoying a pleasant pair of a coffee and a croissant in a nearby café.

The residential complex Bornholm is a good chance to move to a new point of attraction in Berlin.
