‘The old “new west” of Berlin is a neighbourhood that has grown over more than 100 years and, with its functioning blend of working, living, shopping, culture and leisure, has become the epitome of a European metropolis. For some years now, these existing qualities have come to the fore as can be seen in the high level of investment around Breitscheidplatz. We are delighted to be involved in this development and to do our part with UPPER WEST, in both urban and economical terms.’
CEO of STRABAG Real Estate
‘UPPER WEST completes the urban gateway setting at the entrance to Kantstrasse. Its white facade has the elegance of a net-like skin and makes the tower look like a monolithic sculpture.’
Architect for the urban design
The tower offices provide approximately 1.000 square meters per floor of flexibly and individually designable areas. From the 19th to the 32nd upper floors one enjoys during work a marvellous view over town. Whether individual offices for focussed working or a dynamic team-orientated open-office-structure: all tenant requirements can be answered to.
The office space at Kurfürstendamm 11 reside in an unique location. Right here the famous boulevard begins. The flexible floor plans with up to 1,200 square meters per floor can be individually customised to tenant requirements.
A melting pot deluxe. The most famous shopping streets in Germany meet at UPPER WEST: Kurfürstendamm and Tauentzien with KaDeWe. Around 300 shops with over 200,000 square metres of sales floor tempt Berliners and tourists at the most popular shopping spot in town. In UPPER WEST, around 3,900 square metres of retail space are available from the first floor down to the first basement floor.
The Motel One flagship will be the largest hotel in the Group to date, with around 580 rooms over 18 floors. On the balcony of the breakfast restaurant on the 10th floor, you can enjoy the dynamism of the city even in the morning; then in the evening in the lounge, you can let the impressions of the day sink in.
‘Berlin, like London or Paris, is one of Europe’s top destinations and also promises potential for further growth in the future.’
Dieter Müller, CEO of the Motel One Group
In the Skybar 110 metres up, the view is impressive. Around 1,000 square metres above the city’s rooftops – a good place for inspiration and thinking outside the box over lunch or a business dinner.

‘City West is on the up.’
It’s not only urban-development senator Michael Müller who thinks so. The cityscape is indeed changing at the moment, mostly vertically. Following Zoofenster, UPPER WEST is set to be one of the tallest skyscrapers to reach for the heavens, dominating the western centre of Berlin. From up there, you get a spectacular view of t he city and of this so diverse neighbourhood. You find yourself in the middle of a district that has been renowned far beyond city limits for over a hundred years, a place that embodies Berlin flair like no other. Then known as the ‚‘new west’, it is popular today as a place to live, work, play and shop in the bustling centre of western Berlin.
The worst-kept secret – local and international starlets get together at the Paris Bar, diagonally opposite Stilwerk.
