ADO Immobilien Management GmbH Supports the FACE Family Centre on Wilhelmsruher Damm in Berlin-Reinickendorff

  • ADO grants rent-free use of the new rooms for entire first year
  • Grand opening on 11 October with Uwe Brockhausen, Borough Councillor for Business, Health, Integration and Social Services, in attendance
  • Other extensive activities for the promotion of a sound residential environment and stable neighbourhoods in Reinickendorf and Spandau

Berlin, 10 October 2018 – The Berlin-based housing company ADO Immobilien Management GmbH, a subsidiary of ADO Properties, supports the FACE Family Centre in Berlin’s borough of Reinickendorf by waiving an entire year’s rent for the premises occupied by FACE. The centre will open on Thursday, 11 October 2018, between 13.00 and 16.30 CEST with Uwe Brockhausen, Reinickendorf’s Borough Councillor for Business, Health, Integration and Social Services, in attendance, and will host a street party on the Rollberge town square near Titiseestrasse 3 in 13469 Berlin. 

The family centre, which is sponsored by two protestant parishes, had to vacate its former premises because the building was found to be contaminated with asbestos. It will be razed and replaced with a new building. As fall-back solution, the FACE Family Centre moved into commercial accommodation owned by ADO in the immediate vicinity of its former location, and ADO will be charging no rent during the first year.

Eyal Horn, Managing Director of ADO Immobilien Management GmbH, had this to say: “For years, the FACE Family Centre has supported families in the Rollbergsiedlung neighbourhood and its surrounding areas with its diverse service options. We are happy to be able to help the centre by letting them have the use of these premises and enable them to continue their work while the new building is being raised. By waiving the rent for one year, we want to support the work of FACE and do what we can to cushion the cost burden created by the relocation and the fit-out of new facilities and to allow FACE to keep doing its work.”

Extensive Social Activities Elsewhere in Reinickendorf and Spandau

In addition to its support for FACE, the social commitments of ADO include numerous other projects that contribute to a sound residential environment and stable neighbourhoods in housing estates in the boroughs of Reinickendorf and Spandau in Berlin. In June, for example, the company sponsored the community clean-up project and the district street party in the Staaken sub-district in the borough of Spandau (Heerstrasse Nord) and the block party in the Rollbergsiedlung housing estate in Reinickendorf. In September, ADO took part in another community clean-up and planting drive in Staaken to mark the onset of fall. On top of that, ADO started reinstating the amateur football pitch at the corner of Sandstrasse and Blasewitzer Ring in Staaken, which will get a new cover and a new kicking cage. ADO has earmarked a total amount of c. 40,000 euros for the purpose.

Manuela Modenberg, who heads the Reinickendorf / Spandau office of ADO Immobilien Management GmbH and is thus responsible for the housing estates concerned, stated: “As lessor of a large number of flats in Reinickendorf and Spandau, it is perfectly natural for us to look beyond the mere upkeep of the building stock and to be actively committed to creating an attractive residential environment and stable neighbourhoods. In this context, we regularly support neighbourhood initiatives and institutions that are actively engaged in this field.”
