Making Space for Berlin to Grow
Within six months after the opening the new international airport for Berlin and Brandenburg in Berlin-Schönefeld (BER), Berlin-Tegel Airport is to be closed down. The site will then be converted over the following years to create a research and industrial park for urban technologies: Berlin TXL – The Urban Tech Republic, and a new residential quarter: the Schumacher Quarter. Land Berlin has entrusted the Tegel Projekt GmbH with the development and management of Berlin TXL – The Urban Tech Republic and the Schumacher Quarter. The state-owned company is working on the further development of the master plan, the brand development, planning for the building construction, the technical and transport infrastructure and energy services, as well as operative preparations and the public promotion of the project.
