Popular neighbourhoods with old buildings are under upgradation, the quality of life is improving. And prices are rising as a result. The southern part of the district features large estates that offer attractive housing on a grand scale.
A former airport and a new one have decisively shaped the development of the district over the last decade. After Tempelhof Airport closed in 2008, the residents of the neighbourhoods in the vicinity found that they were no longer in the flightpath of incoming aircraft. But instead were now living near the largest open space in Berlin. This made the northern subdistrict of Neukölln even more attractive and generated additional momentum for its further development. Neukölln’s proximity to Kreuzberg has also attracted a new clientèle to its highly dense neighbourhoods with old buildings: creatives, students and expats have moved in, and the subdistrict has also become popular among tourists. Rents that were once quite favourable have increased significantly and extensive refurbishing operations have been undertaken to upgrade what in some cases were rather neglected buildings.
The new BER Airport began operating in 2020 just on the other side of the border to Brandenburg. A district that once came to an abrupt end at the Berlin Wall now ends at Berlin’s new gateway to the world. Medium-term plans call for the extension of the U7 underground line to BER, which would further improve what are already good transport connections in the district.
Things are changing noticeably in Britz – the subdistrict located immediately outside the S-Bahn train line (the “Ring”). Here, perimeter block development is giving way to large housing estates. New residential housing on a grand scale was already a trend here back in the 1920s. It serves as sort of a prototype for what would become the dominant development approach after the Second World War. The so-called “Hufeisensiedlung” (Horseshoe Estate), for example, is famous even beyond the architectural world. And is now a World Heritage Site.
Like the Horseshoe Estate, the Gropiusstadt subdistrict is present since the 1960s and 1970s. It was a satellite estate at the border to Brandenburg. And is also part of the large housing estate tradition. The Gropiusstadt high-rises are home to approximately 18,500 apartments of various sizes. And have different types of amenities. All of them are bright. However, and some offer spectacular views. The vacancy rate is extremely low, in large part due to the fact that rents are relatively low. Suburban estates dominate the scene in the Buckow and Rudow subdistricts, where new residential neighbourhoods are also being developed, as sufficient space for such development is available on the outskirts of Neukölln.
The northern part of Neukölln is now one of the most sought-after locations in the city, especially among students and creatives.
