IC opens THE FIZZ Berlin


International Campus AG opens student residence “THE FIZZ Berlin” 

  • Next stu­dent accom­mo­da­ti­on opens in Ber­lin’s Mit­te dis­trict, fol­lo­wing the apart­ment hou­ses in Bre­men and Frei­burg
  • 95 per cent of the 212 one- and two-room apart­ments alre­a­dy lea­sed
  • The next pro­per­ty in the Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus pipe­line, “THE FIZZ Frank­furt”, set to open its doors in the first quar­ter of 2015 

Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus AG has ope­ned “THE FIZZ Ber­lin”. The stu­dent resi­dence on Köpe­ni­cker Stra­ße in Berlin’s Mit­te dis­trict is a joint ven­ture with the Gäde­ke & Sons Group. Over 95 per cent of the 212 high-qua­li­ty, ful­ly fur­nis­hed one- and two-room apart­ments across six flo­ors have alre­a­dy been lea­sed, seve­ral weeks befo­re the semes­ters at Berlin’s uni­ver­si­ties begin. On avera­ge, the apart­ments are 21 squa­re met­res in size and are equip­ped with a kit­chenet­te and a modern bath­room. 

Horst Lie­der, CEO of Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus AG: “This is fur­ther tes­ta­ment to the fact that we are on the right path with our “THE FIZZ” con­cept and pro­duct. We are right on the but­ton with the latest trends.” Lie­der con­ti­nues: “Our loca­ti­on on Köpe­ni­cker Stra­ße in the city cent­re of Ber­lin is very up-and-coming; there’s a lot going on here. We would love to extend our deve­lo­p­ment exper­ti­se to the adja­cent site, the for­mer “Eis­fa­brik” area. We alre­a­dy have a num­ber of spe­ci­fic usa­ge con­cepts sus­tainable over the long term.” 

“THE FIZZ Ber­lin” is loca­ted at the heart of Ber­lin and offers a num­ber of com­mu­ni­ty spaces, inclu­ding semi­nar rooms, a coo­king area, a lounge as well as a laun­dry room. A house coor­di­na­tor makes sure ever­y­thing runs smooth­ly and safe­ly. The all-in rents, which include elec­tri­ci­ty, hea­ting, water, fur­nis­hings, inter­net access, use of com­mu­ni­ty spaces and all ancil­la­ry char­ges, start at €495 per month. 

Felix Gäde­ke from the Grup­pe Gäde­ke & Sons: “The seg­ment stu­dent housing has mas­si­ve, untap­ped poten­ti­al in the capi­tal. Demand for com­pact, well-desi­gned and ful­ly equip­ped resi­den­ti­al pro­per­ty is huge among stu­dents, but also among young pro­fes­sio­nals and com­mut­ers. That’s why stu­dent resi­den­cy is so attrac­ti­ve to inves­tors and the pri­va­te equi­ty seg­ment, not just in Ber­lin but across all of Germany’s metro­po­li­ses.” 

Berlin’s four uni­ver­si­ties, three art aca­de­mies, seven uni­ver­si­ties of appli­ed sci­en­ces and seve­ral-dozen pri­va­te aca­de­mies host a total of 164,728 young peo­p­le. Three of Berlin’s four uni­ver­si­ties are “Uni­ver­si­ties of Excel­lence”. Rough­ly 16 per cent of stu­dents come to Ber­lin from abroad. Halls of resi­dence in the Ger­man capi­tal offer accom­mo­da­ti­on for 9,411 stu­dents. 

After Bre­men and Frei­burg, Ber­lin is the third “THE FIZZ” loca­ti­on for Inter­na­tio­nal Cam­pus AG. Fur­ther stu­dent resi­den­ces are curr­ent­ly being deve­lo­ped in Darm­stadt, Ham­burg, Hano­ver, Frank­furt II and Frankfurt’s Gal­lus dis­trict, which is set to open in the first quar­ter of 2015.
