Kurfürstenstraße 142/143

Kurfürstenstraße 142/143 is a residential tower project formed as a community of like minded people working in Berlin’s cultural sector. Each unit, regardless of its size, features double-height (5m) living spaces and lower split level spaces (2,5m). With a large garden, generous lobbies, basement storage, and a shared rooftop, a special feature of the building is the large operable triple-glazed windows in each unit. The building, which has commercial spaces on the ground level, is located in the center of Berlin’s gallery district. On the corner of Kurfürstenstraße and Frobenstraße, the building is a mere 15m from the U1 Kurfürstenstraße station. 

Expected completion date: summer of 2021.


Information on available apartments are provided here.

Note on the apartment numbers: the building is composed of six (6) interlocking towers. The apartment numbers indicate both the tower number and the level of the apartment’s entrance. For example, Apartment 6.2 is in tower 6, and you enter on the second floor.
