Urban Coop Berlin: Second Round for Cooperative Housing Project “Schöneberger Linse”

Urban coop berlin has been invited to the second round of the comprehensive concept selection process for the “Schöneberger Linse” in Berlin. The criteria for the final selection will be in particular innovative programme and architectural solutions, besides the usual commercial factors.

Urban Coop Berlin, of which we are a member, will start to develop on the base of the preference assessment of our aspiring members of the cooperative.

The “Schöneberger Linse” neighbourhood is envisioned as a model project in the South of Berlin. The 1,180 m² site will provide 900 apartments next to Berlin’s second largest train station Südkreuz. For the first time, the seat of Berlin plans to involve a mix of stakeholders as developers collaborating on a single site: building initiatives, cooperatives, investment groups and municipal housing agencies, to “ensure a stable neighbourhood development with a sustainable social and programmatic mix”.
