New Entertainment Center at Potsdamer Platz

Potsdamer Platz in Berlin will become an arcade game haven this summer. Gamestate will launch an entertainment center inside the Arkaden mall, which will open as a high-street venue after a two-year period of restructuring and modernizing.

On around 1,200 sq m Gamestate will offer classics and new games at more than 60 arcade stations. Potsdamer Platz will be the second Gamestate location in Germany, after the one in Oberhausen, and the largest one in Europe.

“Potsdamer Platz is a cultural and tourist hotspot in Berlin – and therefore the perfect place for us: centrally located, surrounded by cinemas, theaters and museums, and soon with a new shopping and entertainment concept,” commented Roel Veltmeijer, CEO of Veltmeijer Group, a Dutch family business that owns the Gamestate brand, among other things.

Karl L. Wambach, Executive Vice President Europe of Brookfield Properties and the manager of Quartier Potsdamer Platz, added: “Our objective is to create a diversified and exciting leisure attraction for different age groups. Especially young people and families with children used to have few options to choose from here. But with Gamestate and Mattel aboard now, this is about to change.”

“Potsdamer Platz will become the largest Gamestate location anywhere in Europe! We look forward to seeing this innovative entertainment concept from the Netherlands come to the center of Berlin,” added Jonathan Doughty, Project Director Leasing Services, on behalf of ECE Marketplaces, and Member of the ACROSS Advisory Board.

Besides Gamestate and Mattel, the new Arkaden will feature Manifesto Market, a food hub concept on around 4,400 sq m, and the popular ice cream parlour, Caffè e Gelato, besides others. The completely redesigned Arkaden mall will start to gradually open after mid-year 2022 – with all new occupiers expected to be open for business by next year. Brookfield Properties, the company managing Quartier Potsdamer Platz, collaborates with the shopping center specialist ECE to implement an attractive retail and entertainment concept that complements the location.
