„The approx. 2,000 tenants of the GSG are a very special and diverse mixture of the Berlin middle class. If you were to expose all of our tenants on a deserted island, you probably would not have to worry about your future, as the potential for synergies and collaboration is so diverse. This is not only fascinating, but probably unique in its form in Berlin.“

Sebastian Blecke

Over 50 years experience

For over 50 years, Gewerbesiedlungs-Gesellschaft (GSG) has been a well-known part of Berlin’s economy. Student protests and squatters, the fall of the Wall and the government relocation, New Economy and its crash, cluster strategy and startup boom – catchphrases such as these represent not only the exciting history of Berlin but also that of GSG over the last fifty years.

The continuous work of GSG is closely linked to the development of the city and, in particular, to that of the Berlin industry. GSG has always been an important part of Berlin’s urban and economic development. In over 40 locations GSG Berlin offers small and medium-sized businesses, which form the backbone of Berlin’s economy, the right space to realize their business ideas. Not infrequently, products and services “made in Berlin” emerge, which often extend beyond the borders of the capital.

We are tenants in the Köpenicker Straße since February 2014 and enjoy the nice neighborhood and the good cooperation with the GSG. Other people are convinced: In the meantime, two other partner companies from the IT sector have leased themselves here.

Jan WeberingAvenga Germany GmbH

The rooms of our architectural office are professionally looked after by the GSG and are embedded in a pleasant and inspiring neighborhood - a typical Kreuzberg mix - we like to work here!

Thomas HilligHillig Architekten

We found the necessary space for the continuous expansion of our service in the spacious and bright office of the GSG Berlin. In our open-plan office there is an optimal exchange between developers and creatives. The perfect floor for new ideas!

Benjamin ThymOfferista Group GmbH

We feel very comfortable here in the GSG-Hof. The place is awesome for us. On the one hand, the historic ambience of AEG, a German traditional company, where quality products were made by hand and then our high technology. That's an impressive combination.

Reinhard LembkeSPECS Surface Nano Analysis GmbH

Bright, large, modern rooms, good transport links, spacious loading areas between the individual houses in the business park, a good and reasonably priced canteen, modern internet connections make the work pleasant for everyone. The cheap rent was a major reason to choose Plauener Straße.

Guido ErstlingSchulbuchhandlung Erstling

We founded our company for the production of capillary tube mats for surface temperature control in 1996 and moved in immediately. The smaller units of 1,000 m² and the generosity and brightness of the rooms were ideal for building a small, medium-sized company. "The 1,000 m² have now grown to 2,500 m², turning the start-up into a global market leader.

Albrecht BaukeBeKa Heiz- und Kühlmatten GmbH

Decisive for the location were the good infrastructure, the proximity to pharmaceutical wholesaling and the favorable rental conditions of GSG Berlin. After exactly 5 years here at the GSG-Hof, we are still very satisfied with our decision. We have also frequently used the good range of services, for example renting seminar rooms. In addition, I live up to my close connection with the city district here.

Konstantin PrimbasAPONEO Apotheke

The GSG has supported the Carnival of Cultures for many years with generous areas for rehearsals, workshops and warehouses. This support is essential for the KdK, because creativity needs space to develop and unfold.

Nadja MauWerkstatt der Kulturen

For a year now we have been operating our warehouse / production for the assembly of offices and banks on the Plauener Straße and are always thrilled with the infrastructure and the pleasant environment. Self-sufficient was yesterday - here makes networking fun and the help of the neighbors is very good. It was a good decision!

Olaf Struckos-os office solutions GmbH

GSG Berlin supported us in the redesign of a press shop into a customer center with a showroom for copy/print systems and IT. We have been tenants for 20 years now and especially appreciate the location right next to the city highway. So our technicians are fast with the customer.

Ehrig GmbH Büro-Systemhaus

EGAS Elektronik has experienced at least four or five development spurts in its 18 years of existence and appreciates the GSG-Hof Wolfener Straße as a modern location with an excellent connected industry.

EGAS Elektronik GmbH

In search of a 'landing field' there was no alternative to the GSG Berlin: presentation of ideal rooms (surface and ceiling height with respect to flight simulator), perfect condition and permanently good service, e.g. caretaker.

Daniel JaeckelJetSim Flightsimulation & Flighttraining – Berlin

We have tripled the number of employees within two years and the commercial space tenfold. Good city - fair landlady!

Paul LöhndorfProviant Berlin

At GSG-Hof Helmholtzstraße we have found the ideal space for our company. The ambience of the listed old building, the central location and the proximity to the airport were good arguments for the location. As a company in the field of renewable energies, we attach particular importance to sustainability. The fact that we were allowed to choose our 'green' electricity provider ourselves was another positive aspect.
