Berlin, 4 February 2020 – The housing company ADO Properties just let a commercial unit of around 2,000 square metres in Berlin’s Tempelhof district to the retail company STOFF & STIL which will offer a large selection of fabrics as yard goods, patterns, wool,
knitting instructions, sewing and knitting accessories and a varied assortment of hobby merchandise needed for creative DIY crafts. The branch moved into the premises on 30 January 2020. Its grand opening is scheduled 21 February.
Carsten Stöhr, Country Manager Germany at Stoff & Stil: “We are delighted to be moving into this impressive building. The mezzanine space has inspired us for the first to expand our current concept time at this site. Under the name ‘Selfmade,’ we will not just offer
material and accessories, but also host workshops, shows and other events. We are excited to see how our customers will respond to the new format.”
Danny Havel, Head of Letting Department at ADO Properties, added: “The concept of ‘Selfmade’ makes optimal use of the existing commercial accommodation and the layout specifics of the building. Moreover, it brings added value to the neighbourhood with its
café and the planned events. The successful letting on a long-term lease demonstrates not only the appeal of the historic commercial premises but also the competence of our letting team.”
Out of a gross lettable area of around 2,000 square metres, roughly 1,500 square metres represent retail area, distributed across ground floor and mezzanine. The basement is taken up by storage areas. In the rear of the building, 25 car parking spots are available
to customers, accessed via a passageway from Tempelhofer Damm. The opulent ballroom bears the architectural features typical for an amusement venue around the year 1900. The upper floor is dominated by large arched windows while the entrance is topped
by a richly ornamented pediment. Within the framework of the most recent renovation, plaster elements and mural were uncovered and restored inside the building.The address Friedrich-Karl-Strasse 1-3 is located in the immediate vicinity of the inland port of
Tempelhof and conveniently accessible via the U6 underground line and the B96 federal route.
