Enormous structural changes
Marzahn-Hellersdorf is a district that has undergone enormous structural changes in recent years. It has transformed into a district with a versatile, economically strong and family-friendly city and living space.
Hellersdorf's urban structure is characterised by large prefabricated housing estates, which were built during the GDR period after 1980 as a result of a major project. Today the settlements have been almost completely renovated, modernised and landscaped. The stigma of living in the "Platte" no longer exists and in times of housing shortage the attractiveness of the residential location Hellersdorf increases again.
The single-family house areas in Kaulsdorf and Mahlsdorf form the contrast to the large settlements in Hellersdorf, where a rural to suburban rather than urban atmosphere prevails. Since 1997, the people of Hellersdorf have been proud of their newly built district centre "Helle Mitte", which offers a multiplex cinema in addition to numerous retail chains and cafés. The Hellersdorfer Promenade not only forms a pedestrian zone in the middle of the prefabricated housing estates, but also represents a neighbourhood management area of the Berlin Senate Department for Urban Development. Positive impulses for the improvement of the quality of life and the neighbourhood life are set here.
The situation in Marzahn is similar to Hellersdorf. Here one finds a heterogeneous building structure of prefabricated buildings and single-family house locations. Biesdorf and Friedrichsfelde-Ost have a garden city character and together with Mahlsdorf and Kaulsdorf form the largest connected single-family house area in Berlin.
Real estate prices in Hellersdorf
According to the Office of Statistics, the housing stock in Marzahn-Hellersdorf is about 130,000 apartments, of which about 100,000 are prefabricated housing estates in the large housing developments in Berlin. At just under 14 percent, the ownership rate is in line with the Berlin average. The vacancy rate today is less than 3 percent.
In the districts of Kaulsdorf, Mahlsdorf and Biesdorf there is a construction boom. By contrast, the housing market in Hellersdorf is relatively quiet. Existing apartments are mainly held by housing companies and large, institutional owners, which is why sales in this segment are also low. In Marzahn-Hellersdorf, the lowest rents for Berlin properties are achieved in the city as a whole. The highest household power is achieved in Kaulsdorf. Compared to Berlin, Kaulsdorf ranks among the top ten in terms of household power.

Technologies of the future, Cleantech Business Park and IGA
Marzahn-Hellersdorf counts as an innovative base for industry and health-research. Companies profit from the location factors thanks to the well-developed infrastructure, public transport system (BVG) and access to the highway.
Around 2.500 companies are settled at “Berlin eastside”, which is the biggest connected industrial- business park in Berlin with 1.200 hectare. The area is shared with the district Lichtenberg.
Next to it the Cleantech Business Park opened in September 2015. With 90 hectare it is the largest industrial park in Berlin. The park has been especially built for manufacturing businesses in the Cleantech sector. Ecological factors have already been considered at the exploitation of the area. The goal is the fusion of economic growth with climate and environment protection.
The “Gärten der Welt” in Marzahn-Hellersdorf, with more than 800.000 visitors a year, are exhibiting Chinese, Japanese, Oriental, Balinese and Europe gardening art. In line with the international gardening exhibit (“IGA”) in 2017 the English Garden was opened.
Hellersdorf: High quality of life and family friendly
Residents in Helelrsdorf are "happy" and in good health. It has not always been that way: between 1990 and 2009 suffered from high vacancies and an overaged population. The worst year was in 1997, when approximately 28.000 people moved away and only 17.000 moved to the district. Today around 262.000 people are living in the district, with 2.500 “New-Hellersdorfers” moving here every year. Younger people have a positive impact on the district.
With the many families moving to Hellersdorf, including children between 9 and 18 years, the birthrate in the district is also rising again. The low-priced apartments and the well-developed social infrastructure are especially appreciated by young families. Hellersdorf offers a variety of kindergartens and schools close to the houses and apartments.
