- Investment in the future of work in connection with manufacturing, researching, learning, and residential living in the new "Siemensstadt 2.0"
- Biggest single investment in the history of Siemens in Berlin
A commitment to Berlin and Germany: at the time-honored Siemens industrial estate in Berlin's Spandau district, Siemens AG plans to make its biggest single investment ever in the company's history in Berlin. In the coming years, up to €600 million are to be invested in a new world of working and living: Siemensstadt ("Siemens City") 2.0. This project, which covers an area of 70 hectares, aims to transform this large industrial area into a modern, urban district of the future for a diverse range of purposes. A further goal is to strengthen selected key technologies and innovation fields in collaboration with the scientific and business communities. To make this possible, this section of Berlin is to become home to centers of research and expertise, to start-up incubators and to research and scientific institutes as well as their partner companies.
Building for the future
The thriving district “Siemensstadt” was created on the Nonnenwiesen with thousands of jobs, residences, cultural and social institutions and, above all, a clear vision in mind: to shape the future. This vision is now going to be brought back to life on historical ground.
