Attic Apartments and Terraced Flats for Sale at the UNIQ Kreuzberg

Here is your opportunity to buy a new flat directly by the canalside in the very heart of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. Built in 1975, the apartment complex occupies a superb residential location in one of Berlin’s trendiest boroughs. The property is located on the corner of Johanniterstrasse 3-6 and Brachvogelstrasse 3, directly between the Urbankrankenhaus hospital, Mehringdamm and Landwehrkanal.

The neighbourhood is defined specifically by its proximity to the trendy quarters of Kreuzberg, including to the Bergmannkiez quarter just three blocks over. Located across the canal is Kreuzberg’s public outdoor swimming pool along with a number of museums and galleries, perfect for culture buffs. Like few other boroughs, Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg symbolises style, freedom and individuality. But like the rest of Berlin, Kreuzberg is a melting pot and subject to rapid growth. It is just the place for a clever real estate investment equally rewarding for investors and owner-occupiers.


UNIQ Kreuzberg – Property Description

The defining feature of the subject property on Johanniterstrasse is its tranquillity. Although it lies in the middle of the city, its curved design and its location by the canalside invest it with a peacefulness you will appreciate when returning from the bustling inner city. Light, air and greenery will therefore be prioritised during the redevelopment of the complex. The horseshoe-shaped apartment complex, which opens up toward the canal, is grouped around a sunny yard defined by trees, green areas, balconies and patios.

The sinuous aesthetics and the straightforward colour scheme of the housing complex will be retained even as attic flats are added. The new top floor will perfectly harmonise with the lines of the existing building sections. The design team of Fabian Freytag Studios chose an unobtrusive grey that contrasts with the bright white of the façade in a minimalist way and handsomely complements it. The purist-classic design plan underlines its urban quality of living.


Flats on Existing Floors Refurbished to High Standard

The diverse apartments available for sale vary from a cosy 1.5-bedroom single-occupancy flat all the way to a family-friendly 5-bedroom flat. The floor plans are as bespoke and rich in character as the whole building and indeed the borough itself. The meandering shape of the property creates both convoluted flats and perfectly rectangular ones. In conjunction with the new-build construction, the existing floor will undergo refurbishment measures. The heating systems, thermal insulation and windows will all be upgraded. Moreover, all of the flats on the regular floor come with a balcony each and thus give their residents a chance to try their hand at urban gardening.

Buying a New Top-Floor Condominium

In conjunction with the addition of an extra floor to the existing residential building, all new penthouse flats will be equipped with a number of modern amenities. These include integrated, motorised roller blinds, sound-proof apartment entrance doors, underfloor heating and, in some units, bathrooms that include both shower and tub. The floors will have impact noise insulation and coverings of either board flooring or parquetry. The terraces that all of the attic apartments feature will have a particularly attractive design. The recessed façade makes it possible to create an unobservable private sphere despite the extensive glazing, which admits plenty of daylight into the interior. The top floor is further enhanced by extensive green roofing. Naturally, the existing lifts will be extended to ascend all the way to the attic. In short, your new attic flat in Kreuzberg offers a full range of home amenities. Moreover, a combined heat and power plant will be installed for the attic floor.


Finding Your Next Flat in Kreuzberg

The property is part of the finest residential location in Berlin’s trendy borough of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg. The existing period building will be topped up to add a beautiful attic floor. It will divide into 14 attic apartments that range from 55 to 98 square metres of dwelling floor area. Units available will include five 2-bedroom flats, seven 3-bedroom flats, one studio flat and a 2.5-bedroom flat. The complex thus offers optimal dwelling options for diverse domestic arrangements. Available parking spots are also allocated to the new attic flats. It is yet another qualitative advantage you get to enjoy when opting for an apartment on the attic floor of the housing complex on Johanniterstrasse.
