Is new rental flats in Berlin only a dream? Aldi thinks it isn’t impossible to do
The housing market in Berlin is particularly attractive and the demand never ceases to grow up, City officials say Berlin will need around 200,000 new homes by 2030 to cope with a projected population increase from 3.5 million to 4 million only in the central neighborhood of the city.
This is a big problem for the city of Berlin but also for the people that want to move to the German capital. The solution isn’t easy and the rhythm of the constructions is already at the maximum, so it becomes really relevant the research of alternative solutions.
A great idea comes from Aldi, the German grocer. Budget supermarket Aldi has announced plans to build more than 2,000 rental apartments above its stores and it will be rolled out in at least 30 locations in Berlin at first, in response to rapid population growth and increased demand for affordable housing in the German capital.
Actually, Aldi is launching the first branch of the project with more than 200 apartments in two east Berlin locations: the working class-turned-hipster district of Neukölln and Lichtenberg, home to the former headquarters of the Stasi. The homes are due to be ready to move into by mid-2019 and will be rented for between 6.5 and 10 euros per square meter, according to the article in Berliner Morgenpost.
