The beautiful old building is located at the corner of Florastr. and Heynstr. in the Berlin district of Pankow as a corner development with four floors.
The attic with a floor space of approx. 430 m² is expandable over 2 floors. The possible gross floor area is approx. 845 m² and usable living space is 677.22 m². The legally binding preliminary building permit has been available since May 2019. It allows the building structure and the construction of 2 floors.
Afterwards an individual building permit for the floor plan of the apartment can be applied for. In the current planning, 5 main apartments are planned, with sizes between 95 m² and 185 m². An elevator and a roof terrace are also possible. According to the current planning, all apartments will be connected to the elevator via a pergola. A second lift might be possible depending on the planning office. The preliminary building permit has not yet been issued and must now be applied for and it can changed again individually by the buyer according to wanted requirements. A building application has therefore not yet been submitted by the current owner.
With the issue of the building permit together with surveying, fire protection and statics, the construction can be started. For the later conversion of the units currently listed in the land register as partial ownership into residential property and the adjustment of the certificate of completion and the declaration of division, the consent of all co-owners of the WEG is required. The WEG currently consists of 12 owners, none of whom oppose the project. The certificate of consent has already been drafted and is to be signed at the next WEG meeting. Negotiations have been held with the co-owners so that the owner of the roof, who is in the process of extending the building, will also paint the staircases and superficially renovate the street-side façade. The costs for the measures, which the buyer takes over as obligation, amount to approx. 60.000 € - 80.000 €.
The building with its interesting clinker brick façade was completely renovated in the 80s. About 3/4 of the apartments in the building were completely renovated and rented out. The part of the fresh and waste water line running through the apartment was always replaced. The common property was partially renovated in the years 2013-2014. The measures on the common property included new electrical installation, new intercom system, renovation of the waste area, bicycle parking, entrance areas, etc. On the ground floor there is a popular ice cream parlour, a stylish café for coffee and cake and a charming corner shop. The building is located in the Pankow-Zentrum environmental protection area.

The Florakiez has developed a very lively scene in recent years and is a sought-after residential area for young couples and families. The building is in an ideal location between two large historical parks, the Volkspark Schönholzer Heide and Schönhausen. Around 1900 Pankow was a district of the upper middle class. After the Wall was built, the neighborhood developed into the favorite district of the GDR oligarchy - partly because of its proximity to Schönhausen Palace, the residence of the GDR president, and because of the high density of embassies of the country's allies. Historically, the district has a very good building infrastructure. The S- and U-Bahn station Pankow is only a few walking minutes away and several bus lines stop directly in front of the house. You can quickly reach the neighboring district of Prenzlauer Berg, the heart of the Berlin scene, where you will find an almost infinite variety of leisure and cultural activities. The Potsdamer Platz Oranienburgerstraße can be reached in 8-13 minutes by S-Bahn.
