Austrian real estate investor CA Immo has completed a high-rise in Europaplatz, Berlin ahead of schedule and under budget.
The price tag for the 23,000 m2 Hochhaus am Europaplatz is around €150 mln.
Designed by allmannwappner Architekten, the building is 84 meters tall and has 22 floors. It features a modern conference center, cafeteria, and two roof terraces, while the ground floor has a spacious lobby, multi-story atrium, and restaurant.
The property was fully leased to the auditing and consultancy firm KPMG before construction even began and has been handed over.
Keegan Viscius, CEO of CA Immo: ‘At 84 meters high, Hochaus am Europaplatz is a landmark building in the submarket and another step forward in the continued revitalisation of this urban quarter. With this development, we have completed a nearly net zero building with the technology, specification, certification, and sustainability features to provide an exceptional Berlin headquarters for KPMG – a longstanding tenant of the submarket and valued client of CA Immo.’
The new building was built to strict sustainability standards and CA Immo will seek DGNB Gold certification.
Its CO2 balance over the entire life cycle is 15% below the current recommendations of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
The legal requirements for primary energy consumption during operations will be undercut by around 15%, making the building a Nearly Zero Energy Building according to the EU Commission's definition.
The CO2 emissions forecast for the building's operation is almost 40% below the current reference value.
The Hochhaus am Europaplatz is the tenth building built by CA Immo in the Europacity quarter, a new urban, mixed-use quarter being developed on an area of around 60 hectares directly adjacent to Berlin's main railway station.
The foundation stone has recently been laid at Nordhafen, which has already been fully leased to Deutsche Kreditbank (DKB) and will be completed by the end of 2025.
