Raised at the start of the twentieth century, this corner building with its inner courtyard is defined by its waterfront location. It represents a typical Berlin period building, and has two entranceways – one from the street Neues Ufer, and the other from the avenue Kaiserin-Augusta-Allee – plus the access to the side building. The attic has not been developed yet, and the building's corner is topped by a conspicuous, nearly square tower.
The ground floor of the building is occupied by three commercial units. The 32 residential units spread across the ground floor and the four upper floors, have spacious floor plans, but some of the flats have been subjected to structural alterations in decades past to meet the requirements of their day and age. Virtually all flats come with a balcony, facing either the street or the courtyard. The building has a rather well-appointed appearance, and one of the highlights embraced by the residents as a gathering place is the painstakingly landscaped inner courtyard. The charm of this Belle Époch building is explained primarily by the wealth of historic detail such as the original wall panelling and floor tiling of the entrance areas, whose patterns and ornaments have been largely preserved, as well as the ornamental stucco ceilings. Both the building's front doors and the apartment entrance doors have mostly survived in their original state. The flats are equipped with gas-fired self-contained heating units, the gas meter being located inside the flats along with the electric meter.
LOCATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
Moabit has been a part of the borough of Mitte-Tiergarten since Berlin's administrative reform of 2013, and is thus officially part of the town centre. Due to its location between two arms of the Spree River, Moabit forms an island of sorts that is characterised by extensive riverbank locations. The location's convenient access is one of the reasons why it was initially favoured by businesses and factories during the industrial revolution in the nineteenth century. The industrial structures were interspersed with cheap tenement housing for the labour force, and to this day, the district is defined by perimeter block developments consisting of multi-family dwellings. The phenomenon is particularly conspicuous on Kaiserin-Augusta-Allee and Neues Ufer.
Lately, however, the central location and the typical period building structure of the district have made it a sought location. Both rent rates and purchase prices have been trending upward in recent years, reflecting the strong demand. Moabit benefits from the then-as-now swift price growth in downtown Berlin.
The property is located directly next to a canal (Charlottenburger Verbindungskanal) and close to its confluence with the Spree River. The well-developed promenades along the waterways will take you all the way downtown, if you feel like an extended walk. The square on the opposite bank, Goslarer Platz, is a great spot for hanging out during the summer time. The sprawling parklands of the Charlottenburg Palace grounds are a 15-minute walk away.
