With the purchase of a 12,700 m² garden plot in Berlin's ward of Dahlem, Diamona & Harnisch continues on its growth course in the high-end residential real estate segment of Germany's capital.
Two historic mansions on the grounds, which are located between Altensteinstrasse, Wichernstrasse and Ehrenbergstrasse in close proximity to the Botanical Gardens, will be professionally refurbished. Moreover, new mansions whose architecture will complement the classic design of the legacy buildings are to be added.
Once completed, Paulinum-Dahlem (www.paulinum-dahlem.com) will offer a wide variety of residential formats, with apartment sizes ranging from about 50 to 200 m². The construction project involves a complex featuring various, architectonically harmonious structures. These will supplement the two historic buildings that were originally built as a school, and that will now be redeveloped at great expense and converted into condominiums including balconies or patios.
Tax benefits for listed buildings
One of the two historic mansions is listed as protected monument. "This makes the Paulinum-Dahlem highly interesting for private investors, too, as buyers stand to benefit from deductions for depreciations," explained Alexander Harnisch, Managing Director of Diamona & Harnisch.
The Paulinum-Dahlem will be the seventh residential project realized in Berlin by Diamona & Harnisch a project developer itself based in Berlin and simultaneously the company's third project in the Borough of Steglitz-Zehlendorf. "The projects Fichtenberg Carré and KönigsQuartier have shown that the borough is characterized by a keen demand for modern townhouses that combine contemporary design with energy efficient architecture. That is why we always look into the possibility of using geothermal heating," said Harnisch.
A neighborhood of patrician mansions
The Paulinum-Dahlem estate is surrounded by historic mansions close to the Botanical Gardens and the museum compound in Dahlem, and has superb transportation access to downtown Berlin. The architecture of the quarter's mansions ranges from the Renaissance to the Belle Epoch, lending a uniquely patrician touch to the district. An excellent infrastructure, plenty of greenery and rich cultural diversity make Dahlem a highly attractive residential area of extraordinary flair.
