Land zoned for development is hard to find in Berlin-Mitte. Yet we found this spot for a new front building with 24 flats and a back building for another 14 flats – plus a greened inner courtyard with playground and private gardens for the ground floor units. A place to come home to and to kick back. The upper floors come with spacious balconies and patios. There is no reason why infill densification cannot be elegant and liveable. In this case, a perfect downtown sanctuary benefits from the proximity of parks and everything this inner-city district has to offer, including short distances to other downtown districts like Wedding and Pankow.
