Concept & Planning


Environment and sustainability are given special consideration in the Spreepark of the future. All planning and construction measures must take ecological aspects into consideration.

Sustainability concept: transformation with responsibility

Thanks to a comprehensive sustainability concept, the Spreepark is being transformed in an efficient and resource-conserving manner. In addition to careful and forward-looking development in the classic areas of ecology, economy and social affairs, the concept also provides for further high standards for technical quality, process quality and site quality. Sustainable development includes taking into account the habitat requirements of the local animal and plant species, the use of existing buildings ("grey energy") and the implementation of an innovative transport concept that supports the mobility transition. Comprehensive rainwater management and the extensive use of renewable energy in future operations will result in both climate-related and economic benefits for the future. On the one hand, the socio-cultural component was strengthened by the extensive dialogue with citizens, particularly in the multi-year participatory planning process. At the same time, the Spreepark will offer low-threshold art, culture and nature experiences close to the city centre and easily accessible - for all generations.

The trial operation in the Spreepark laboratory also provides the opportunity to incorporate sustainable ideas and needs that arise during the development process into the realisation and subsequent operation.

Demonstrably sustainable

As the first public park in Germany, the Spreepark project has received the pre-certificate from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) in platinum. The desired platinum certificate is awarded to construction projects that meet above-average criteria for sustainable implementation.
