Two new tenants for the TechnoCampus in Berlin’s Siemensstadt
Axa IM Alts was able to land two tenants for one of the two new building sections of the TechnoCampus Berlin, which is currently being developed on the site of the former Wernerwerk XV at Siemensdamm 58 – 65 in the district of Spandau. The German headquarters of the Danish grocer Netto and the pharmaceutical company CRS will fly their flag at the location next year.
Both new tenants will move into the so-called Bauteil F, a rectangular building with three to seven floors. The Danish retailer Netto is expected to move its German headquarters to the upper floors of the new building at the end of 2023. Netto has signed a contract for an area of 3,400 sqm. The remaining 2,400 sqm in Building F will be used by Clinical Research Services (CRS). The research-based pharmaceutical company is moving into offices and laboratory space at Siemensdamm and has signed a 15-year lease, according to Axa IM Alts.
Campus with 63,000 sqm of rental space
The main owner of the TechnoCampus is AXA IM Alts, the real estate asset manager of the Axa insurance group. A minority stake is held by the company Caleus TechnoCampus, in which Axa IM Alts acquired the majority shares in 2018. After completion of the two new buildings, which comprise around 20,000 sqm of lettable space, the TechnoCampus will have around 63,000 sqm of total lettable space spread across three building sections.
The TCHOBAN VOSS office designed the new buildings
The designs for the extension buildings on the campus come from the Berlin architectural firm TCHOBAN VOSS. The centrepiece of today’s TechnoCampus is the historic building of the former Wernerwerk XV. Built in the 1920s, the structure with its red clinker brick façade used to belong to the Siemens factories in the Spandau district of Siemensstadt. The multi-winged building has been brought up to the state of the art in the past and offers flexibly divisible space. Tenants include Lufthansa Systems, VHV Versicherung and Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund. The latter moved into 14,000 sqm of office space in the prestigious old building on Siemensdamm in northwest Berlin only last year.
