The experiment was a success! At least that's my assessment after visiting one of the most luxurious new building projects in Berlin-Mitte, but back to the beginning of the story.
In the years since the fall of the Berlin Wall, Berlin has had several cycles of the real estate market and after 30 years of reunification of a divided city, it is now finally a real estate market as it should be in a cosmopolitan city. The price screw has turned particularly quickly in recent years and still only knows one direction - up. Trendy districts come and go, but the demand for real estate remains unbroken. Berlin-Mitte in particular was and is in the focus of buyers, often from abroad, but also among well-heeled new Berliners from Germany who are primarily looking for and like the often described Berlin metropolitan lifestyle. Berlin is and remains hip, even if like every other pulsating big city it goes through phases of the oh-so-hip hipster culture. But with almost 4 million inhabitants and the many different influences, it never gets boring.
