The residential properties were built in 2008 and 2009 comprising a total living space of approx. 16,060 m². 144 units are split into various building types such as duplexes, semi-detached and row houses as well as apartment houses.

The Teltow town is in the southern suburban area of Berlin, enjoying a direct fast train connection to the Berlin's city center as well as to the airport. Being the neighboring community to Berlin, young families in particular find Teltow attractive. The positive migration balance of 30 to 50-year-olds with children results in rising demand for single-family homes in this attractive location.
The properties are in Teltow's district Mühlendorf, a family-friendly housing area with a nursery and a primary school reachable on foot. Mühlendorf is characterized by a generous landscape architecture demonstrated by e.g. a small rain-fed lake in the direct property neighborhood.
