Squares, intersections and subway stations are potential catalysts for an urban mix of residents, workers and visitors. There are many such places in Berlin’s Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg borough to which many different people are drawn. The subway station, Prinzenstrasse, is hardly one of them. It is not a melting pot or meeting place, just a transit point to hurry between Kottbusser Tor and Halleschem Tor on the city’s U-Bahn.
Prinzessinnen Tor will change all of this. This sustainable development will bring modern offices above the station, retail spaces within it and green infrastructure around it, encouraging cycling and walking.
Prinzessinnen Tor will be a new mixed-use social hub for this undiscovered city corner, with direct connection to Berlin’s popular Alexandersplatz.
The scheme is being designed by internationally-renowned Eike Becker Architekten. The practice works at the interface between architecture and urban planning, using innovative materials and technology.
