Welcome to Uhlandpalais in Charlottenburg!
“City West”, the downtown area that includes Kurfürstendamm and Tauentzienstrasse with the glitzy KaDeWe department store, has traditionally been considered the bourgeois heartland of West Berlin.
The classic period building on Uhlandstrasse in Berlin-Charlottenburg mirrors the posh charm that downtown West Berlin or “City West” is known for. To get here, you turn off the Kurfürstendamm high-street boulevard onto a quiet side street with old-growth trees and tantalising cafés and boutique stores. The quarter around Uhlandstrasse is one of the city’s most popular areas, both for promenading and spending time. It is equally appealing to locals and tourists.
The very entrance of Uhlandpalais, raised in 1899/1900, with the typical ceiling paintings and stairwells of its day create a manorial atmosphere. The five-storey multi-unit dwelling divides into a front building, two side buildings and a back building, grouped around a handsomely designed inner courtyard. The front and back buildings are equipped with lifts that provide convenient access to the upper floors.
Uhlandpalais—it’s all in the name! This baroque-revival building from the Belle Époque will amaze you with its stately period flats, four loft apartments and four commercial units. You will feel the charm of Old Berlin as soon as you lay eyes on the stucco façade with its relief-adorned columns, ornaments and intricately structured pediments.
Striking Condominiums in Downtown West Berlin
The spaciously proportioned flats of 3 to 9 bedrooms come with loggias, Juliet balconies or roof terraces. Footprints between 108 and 310 square metres and ceiling heights of up to four metres lend a particularly spacious and bright atmosphere to the flats. The exclusivity of the flats is accentuated by the plaster ceilings and wooden flooring that have been preserved in their original state in most places. Upscale details such as the original brass door fittings and the ornamental glass preserved in some of the double-panel coffered doors turn these apartments into veritable gems. The large double-cased windows admit plenty of daylight into the welcoming interiors.
Cinemas, theatres and galleries have been an established presence here for decades, and some count among the city’s cultural landmarks. Paired with a diversified blend of culinary offers that range from coffee roasting companies to gourmet restaurants, it is an area that attracts people from everywhere. In the near future, the former Ku’damm Karree directly outside the building will open for business under its new name Fürst, donning new architecture and featuring a selection of modern stores, a gym, a preschool, and office units. The area gets a youthful touch by the ubiquitous presence of students from the nearby University of Arts and the University of Technology.
