Karstadt to Open a New Department Store in the Gropius Passagen in Berlin

In autumn 2018, Karstadt announced that it will open a new department store in the Gropius Passagen in Berlin. For its future store, the department store group has signed a long-term lease with the capital's biggest shopping centre, which, as part of a joint venture with TH Real Estate, belongs to the portfolio of Unibail-Rodamco Germany and is also run by the company itself. Karstadt will, to all intents and purposes, be moving into the space that, until the summer of last year, was occupied by Galeria Kaufhof. The new department store in the Gropius Passagen covers 7,900 m2 of sales space on three storeys and is designed as a networked marketplace. The property is expected to be handed over to the tenant - Karstadt Warenhaus GmbH - by July 2018 at the latest, with the grand opening scheduled for as early as October 2018.

Karstadt to Open New Department Store by 2018

Karstadt will open a new department store by 2018 at the latest. A long-term lease for this future branch was concluded with HGHI Holding GmbH. The new branch will be situated in a prime location that is very popular with customers and well connected to U-Bahn and S-Bahn lines. The new department store in the Gorkistrasse pedestrian zone covers 8,800 m of sales space on four storeys and is designed as a local marketplace. The property is expected to be finished by 2018 at the latest and will then be handed over to Karstadt Warenhaus GmbH as the tenant. The new branch will open approximately two months later. The Tegel Center and the 350-metre pedestrian zone on Gorkistrasse will be modernised to a large extent by HGHI Holding GmbH to offer this district an attractive shopping experience. Over 100 shops will be built here on approximately 50,000 m of sales space. With its immediate proximity to U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations, this location also has excellent local public transport connections.
