There will be a lot of building taking place in Berlin in the coming years. Berlin is growing and it needs new flats for the people who live here today, and also for those who will be coming to the city in the coming years. The infrastructure required for these new flats also needs to be built: schools, daycare centres, roads and bridges, universities, museums and theatres. Berlin’s great advantage is that there is plenty of space to build on. We, the competent Senate administration, create the planning foundations for the construction projects, are responsible for incentive programmes and also do some building ourselves. We support building culture on a large scale, both in new construction and in the existing building stock.
