With BOX SEVEN, a new lively urban quarter with many facets and possibilities is being created on the approximately 26,000 square meter site of a former commercial area. The harmonious mix of modern living, green surroundings, individual architecture and its own small infrastructure makes the quarter stand out and fits it harmoniously into the grown structures of the surrounding neighborhood. The heart of the area is the large public urban garden, around which six small individual quarters (A to F) are developed. Designed in a classic-modern architectural style with the character of individual houses, the six- to seven-story buildings blend harmoniously into the surrounding area, which is characterized by its Wilhelminian style.
Hardly any other square in Berlin is as colorful and vibrant. In addition to the children’s playground with paddling pool and the sunbathing lawn, where the young scene likes to meet today, the “Boxi” is especially loved for its markets: The weekly market has been around since 1905 – today it takes place on Saturdays and offers fresh regional goods in particular, but also many international specialties. The flea market is also popular, where junk fans can browse extensively every Sunday and purchase various creative and curious rarities.
