Impressive, historic commercial building with state-of-the-art fit-out features

Wallstraße 9-13 | 10117 Berlin

Right on the bank of Spreekanal, across from Fischerinsel and near the historic centre of Berlin lies Spindlershof, a heritage cluster of office, commercial and residential units built over a century ago. The six-storey building complex, which underwent a costly sustainability upgrade, provides about 19,600 sqm of office space of excellent specifications and is equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

Belle Époque, Start-up Scene, and Brisk Growth

Berlin. The German capital is a magnet for talent and skilled workers from all over Europe. Its eminent position in commerce, politics, art, culture, education, research as well as its bright growth prospects make Berlin a start-up and innovation haven.

The statistics suggest as much: With 40,000 new businesses registered and more than 500 start-ups formed each year, Berlin is the unrivalled capital of entrepreneurs. In terms of venture capital, Berlin accounts for almost 50 % of all investments nationwide.

The boom is no coincidence. Berlin benefits from an excellent business environment that is fuelled by a steady stream of fresh ideas, innovations and young talent from universities, research institutes and incubators. But the conventional economy is booming too. Its trajectory keeps pointing upward. A manufacturing surge in Berlin’s suburbs complements the bustling economy within the city limits, which is dominated by the IT and media sectors and by the branch offices of large corporates. As the nation’s capital, Berlin is the decision-making centre of Germany. From here, policy-makers, diplomats, interest groups and institutions shape the future of Germany and Europe.

Spindlershof is located between Friedrichstrasse and Alexanderplatz, directly on the bank of Spreekanal. The historic commercial building offers modern and sustainable work environments behind a classic façade – right in the heart of Berlin’s centre. Wallstrasse is a street connecting established players in Mitte district with young go-getters in Kreuzberg. This is where tradition faces tomorrow. Where suits clash with sneakers. Where brick meets concrete. Where money mingles with ideas. A start-up scene embedded in Belle Époque flair.

Vintage Building with Bright Future.

In 1841, the entrepreneur Wilhelm Spindler acquired the plot at Wallstrasse 12 on the bank of Spreekanal to set up the first dry-cleaning business in Germany. The company grew quickly, and its quarters soon became too small. Spindler responded by commissioning the Kayser & v. Großheim architectural firm to construct a business estate to house a variety of businesses. After World War II, the building complex was occupied by a state-run company, VEB Wärmeanlagen. It was returned to private ownership after the country’s reunification.

Around the turn of the millennium, it underwent shell-and-core refurbishment. In the years since, the commercial building has been carefully maintained and periodically subjected to costly technical upgrades. Today, its mechanical and electrical engineering meets the latest efficiency standard. As of 2023, the attic storey has been developed using efficient timber construction, with an extra floor added. This created additional exclusive office units and luxury apartments on the top floors. All of the modernisation measures focused on ESG objectives and on the optimisation of a New Work environment. It was certified with a BREEAM “Very Good” rating.
