“We love leisure” is the motto of ECE’s new placemaking strategy which is being implemented consequently at Potsdamer Platz Arkaden Berlin. Further centers will follow soon.

20 years after the initial development of Potsdamer Platz, a new era for the site is dawning. In the last few years, a comprehensive and far reaching program of office refurbishment and letting has taken place, resulting in a significant increase in the working population on site and the creation of some exciting and engaging work places.

In addition to the successful refurbishment and leasing program of the office estate, ECE is redefining the shopping, food and leisure experiences at Arkaden and around the whole estate. A site-wide plan of foodservice development, closely linked to the substantial leisure components, has been created to deliver a unique and powerful location for people to enjoy. This is complemented by a placemaking strategy for the streets and access areas around the estate, to further develop this asset. The new foodservice and leisure elements are being planned now and ECE is continuously working to bring new and interesting tenants and partners to Potsdamer Platz.

Jonathan Doughty, Global Head of Foodservice, Leisure and Placemaking at ECE, said: “We collaborate with food operators, international tenants, and leisure operators now to plan the future offer for the estate, so it is a great time to get in touch with the team–if you want an outstanding location in Berlin, this is a stunning opportunity.”
