Topping-out ceremony for the Berlin project "PURE" at the East Side Gallery

"PURE Living Berlin" closes the last gap in the new quarter at the East Side Gallery. The project, designed by the well-known Berlin architectural office Hemprich Tophof, with its wave-like natural stone façade, takes up the theme of water and thus does justice to its proximity to the Spree River. "PURE" offers 185 new condominiums, from a one-room apartment with 29 m² to a 4-room apartment with up to 126 m².

Around 100 employees, guests and media representatives attended the topping-out ceremony at the construction site.  The property developer, PREMIUM Immobilien Group, the general contractor, Schrobsdorff Bau AG and ZIEGERT - Bank- und Immobilienconsulting GmbH, welcomed their guests and expressed their thanks to those involved in the project.

Werner Höft, Managing Director of PREMIUM Immobilien Deutschland GmbH: "I am very pleased, we are fully on schedule with PURE Living Berlin. On August 22, 2019, we celebrated the laying of the foundation stone at this point and despite the corona situation from spring onwards, construction is progressing on schedule. The clearly and consistently structured project process and its implementation reflects the basic understanding of all parties involved regarding efficient project development.

Sven Henkes, Managing Director of ZIEGERT - Bank- und Immobilienconsulting GmbH: "The construction progress of the PURE project is remarkable and only possible through the interaction of top architecture, excellent execution and holistic project development by PREMIUM. The location represents the transformation of Berlin like no other: Here modernity and history are combined. The coming together of people from all over the world creates a unique liveliness, only a few meters away from the remains of the Berlin Wall, 30 years after reunification."

There were also words of praise from Schrobsdorff Bau AG, the commissioned general contractor. Dietmar Witt, CEO of Schrobsdorff Bau AG: "12 months ago there was only Berlin sand here, and now this imposing building stands here. 18,000 cubic meters of earth were moved, 12,000 cubic meters of concrete were installed, and almost 1,800 tons of steel were used. A big thank you to the construction team on site, who made a smooth and on-schedule completion possible". Michael Schrobsdorff, owner of Schrobsdorff Bau AG, added: "Here we experience real building culture. PREMIUM is an extraordinary builder-owner, with whom cooperation is ideal and brings joy. I am also happy that the construction site has remained accident-free and I am sure that it will still remain".

Two foremen of Schrobsdorff Bau AG - Mr. Löffler and Mr. Bockwolt - spoke the solemn carpenter's verdict and asked for blessing for the future house. After the topping-out wreath had been lifted, the PREMIUM Group invited to food and drink.

After two years in sales, more than 70 percent of the apartments have already been sold or reserved. The interest of national and international customers is very good. The apartments are suitable both as capital investment and for owner-occupiers who appreciate the proximity to the Spree, Alexanderplatz and major employers such as Zalando, Coca-Cola and Daimler. Special comfort is provided by the in-house concierge service in the lobby-like entrance area; an exclusive place of tranquility is the green inner courtyard.

Despite the Corona challenges, PREMIUM and ZIEGERT can assure the completion of "PURE" is fully on schedule. The apartments will be ready for occupancy from summer 2021.
