The conversion of the building into a residential tower can now begin. Maybe
Postbank, formerly one of the bigger German retail bank, has begun the move from the Kreuz GQ to its new offices in Moabit. The conversion of the building can now start, after sold its 89-meter high office tower on Hallesches Ufer to real estate investor CG Immobilien two years ago.
According to the article of the Tagesspiegel, CG Immobilien planned to convert the Office building into a residential tower with around 300 micro-apartments. The apartments will be a kind of ranging in size from 42 to 82 square meters and the tower will also have areas for socializing and marketplaces. A side from that, the Postbank employees are now working from the former Interior Ministry building on the banks of the Spree in Moabit.
Living, working or studying in Berlin is fashionable and has been a kind of ‘vogue’ now, especially since the German capital is still quite cheap (not at all and the trending is so expensive) among the World metropolises.
The CG Group has specialized in the redesign of former office towers in new residential areas throughout Germany. In addition to tower apartments on the Landwehrkanal, around 500 more apartments are planned for the quarter. The CG Group has certainly a clear idea in mind, they said that “from 2017 onwards, a new era will begin for the post office”.
