Cooperation between the CG Group and Kondor Wessels enters a third round: the two successful enterprises teamed up for the Carré Charlotte project and are set to start a third residential complex shortly. October 2012 will see the start of construction for Carré Raimar, comprising 209 apartments
with over 17,200 square metres of residential space. In addition, the complex will contain 1,100 square metres of commercial space and an underground car park with 128 parking spaces, with a total investment volume of € 60 million.
The history of the sites and buildings always forms the basis for the project development. This often means interpreting the historical elements in today’s context, and sometimes involves simply copying a century-old concept.
In case of Carré Raimar in Berlin-Charlottenburg, which is located on block surrounded by Wilmersdorfer Straße, Bismarckstraße and Rückertstraße, there is a double reference to history. The project firstly gives back to the city what it lost through demolition as a result of war damage sixty years ago, in particular wonderful interior court yards. A bare wall facing Rückertstraße is currently the only reminder that part of the carré was originally located here. At the moment, there is a car park on the open area behind an ugly wall. The gap will be closed in future, and the block will once again be completed. This is the optimal solution for this micro-location in the immediate neighbourhood of the Wilmersdorf-Arkaden and other infrastructure from which future residents will benefit.
The second historical reference is the name Carré Raimar itself. This is derived from of the pseudonyms of Friedrich Rückert, an 19th Century German poet who also published under the name of Freimund Raimar. Rückert was also interested in aesthetics and was a member of the Freemason’s Lodge Karl zum Rautenkranz. Rückertstraße, in which Carré Raimar will be constructed as a new building, inspired the CG Group to name its property in this way, bearing homage to Rückert and Berlin. Construction will commence in Autumn 2012. The site comprises 9,500 square metres of space, currently occupied by the car park and two historic listed buildings. The existing old building on Bismarckstraße is currently the subject of predominantly commercial use. In future, attractive commercial premises will be located on the
ground floor and the first floor, whereas the other upper floors will be devoted to high-quality apartments. The remaining open area will be filled by new buildings as part of the project planned by the Leipzig Architects Fuchshuber and Peter Homuth in conjunction with the Architect Ivan Reimann of Müller Reimann in Berlin. This Berlin prime location will command net rents of between 11€ and 14€.
