any have already moved to KunstCampus, the new residential riverside right next to the Berlin-Spandau Ship Canal. Others are working at the impressive Tour Total Tower or the 50Hertz building, whilst visitors fl ock to one of the many hotels that have opened up at Europacity to explore the new district.

Whoever takes a stroll through Europacity cannot help but realise: this is where urbanity thrives; where a vibrant neighbourhood is emerging in the centre of the city. Remarkable architecture is taking shape at every corner. The new buildings provide space for about 3,000 apartments and some 16,500 work places – surrounded by ample green areas and the banks of the Berlin-Spandau Ship Canal. Heidestraße already gives a hint of its future boulevard fl air – with broad pedestrian walkways lined by trees on both sides.

Europacity does not only convince urban planners, but also the people who live, work, shop and spend their free time here. The same goes for Weidt Park Corner in the green heart of Europacity, which provides space for offi ces, restaurants and retail outlets in a prominent location and behind a striking façade.

n the 19th century, the area around Heidestraße was one of Berlin’s major railway and cargo handling locations. Fast forward to 2019 and Heidestraße will soon have transformed into a bustling boulevard, where residents go shopping and employees from nearby offices enjoy their lunch at a restaurant. A lively mix of young professionals heading to their next meeting and those who take their time to stroll along Heidestraße just a little bit longer.

It’s the ideal location for an office and commercial building such as Weidt Park Corner, which also features gastronomic options on the ground floor. Situated on Heidestraße, which connects the new district with the neighbouring quarters and leads to Otto Weidt Square, where trees and benches invite you to linger. From here, a few footsteps take you to the banks of the Berlin-Spandau Ship Canal; the main train station is within short walking distance, offering a wide range of public and long-distance transport.

t is surprising that no US blockbuster has been made about Otto Weidt. But now the town square of Europacity carries his name. Otto Weidt Square is not far from the former workshop in Rosenthalerstraße, which today is the museum “Otto Weidt’s Workshop for the Blind”. It tells the touching story of the broom and brush manufacturer, who – during the Second World War – managed to protect his mainly blind, deaf and mostly Jewish employees from deportation by hiring them at his workshop. He also hid some of them and thus secured their survival.

Others he secretly provided with food supplies. Even after the war, Weidt, who was blind himself, supported the construction of a Jewish orphanage and a retirement home for concentration camp survivors. It is no coincidence that Otto Weidt Square bears the name of this dedicated manufacturer. According to Senate Building Director Regula Lüscher, it is intended as a public space that allows for orientation and identifi cation with the district. The open space close to residential areas is supposed to connect people and give a human face to the social interaction at Europacity.

Otto Weidt – a courageous manufacturer who saved many lives.
