Alexander – a new unique development near Kurfürstendamm

Boasting its own park-like garden, our latest premium development is named after the famous thinker and explorer
Alexander von Humboldt, a man who travelled the world yet always came back to his roots in Berlin.

In desirable Wilmersdorf just a few minutes’ walk from Kurfürstendamm lies Ludwigkirchplatz, a piazza boasting a charming, almost southern European vibe. It’s here that we are currently developing our new ALEXANDER building, one of our most exciting Berlin projects to date. A striking property that will blend beautifully with its attractive surroundings, it features a façade whose dark brickwork, contrasted with a pale base, echoes the local tradition of brick-built architecture.

Situated on Emser Strasse, ALEXANDER is a outstanding, seven-storey building whose 42 stylish homes offer carefully planned layouts, exceptional build quality and first-class fixtures and fittings. The units range from flats for discerning singles to larger apartments and spacious penthouses as well as a separate coach house in the courtyard garden. Floor areas range from 50 to 1,000 square metres, while ten of the units even boast direct lift access.

Attractively planted deep front gardens increase privacy at this urban development while offering a foretaste of one of its undisputed highlights: the large courtyard garden to the rear of the building. A peaceful sanctuary in the heart of the city, it comprises a jardin botanique complete with water feature and a mix of native and exotic plantings – palm-like tree ferns, catalpas, arrow bamboo, grasses and fragrant flowers – that combine to create a verdant urban oasis.

A luxuriant mix of native and exotic plants, ALEXANDER’s unique courtyard garden is a tranquil urban oasis. To the right is the coach house, conceived as a standalone dwelling

“The contemplation of geographical charts exercised an irresistible spell and placed me in intimate relation with the most distant countries.”

The development was named after the famous researcher, thinker and explorer Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859), a man who travelled the world yet returned time and again to his roots in Berlin. Even the foyers and staircases take their cue from Humboldt’s expeditions, which began in 1799 with a five-year excursion across Latin America: ceiling fans, cabinets filled with collectables, opulent wall designs in warm velvety tones, fine natural stone and exclusive designer tiles from the US thus add up to a luxurious aesthetic with a touch of the exotic. A building that reaches around the world, skilfully blending diverse influences, styles, eras, materials and colours, ALEXANDER boasts an enduring and intriguingly timeless look of which Humboldt himself would surely approve. For today’s cosmopolitans, it could just be the perfect home.
