TGS Technologie- und Gründerzentrum Spreeknie
More than 100 years ago at this site, the founding of AEG set the stage for industrial development in Berlin. Today the Technologie- und Gründerzentrum Spreeknie (TGS) is a location for high tech companies.
This large-scale project is located in a large commercial location for research, production and services. With 20,000 m² of main usable space, TGS is one of the largest technology centers and business incubators in Germany.
TGS feels a sense of responsibility towards newly founded technology companies and start-ups from ICT, environmental technology, solar and automated technology.
The area spreads over 74 hectares along the banks of the Spree and comprises the Ober- and Niederschönweide neighborhoods. Emil Rathenau wrote industry history here when he founded AEG. Today Oberschönweide is a modern location for research, production and service.
Both sides of the river are characterized by mixed use. Commercial yards stand next to production locations, shopping centers alongside ateliers and offices, modern construction next to memorial protected industrial architecture.
The HTW Berlin - University of Applied Sciences here is another plus for the location.
Today there is constant change behind the yellow brick walls where the Kabelwerk Oberspree (KWO) in the Rathenau-Hallen was once located, and the traditional industrial space has become a modern business location. The present focus is on R&D, service and film and media. The Wilhelminenhofstraße is now a center for culture, technology, new small businesses and teaching.
Wilhelminenhofstraße 83-85 – once the home of the AEG Transformatorenfabrik (TRO) today belongs to Toruro GmbH & Co. KG. The approximately 23,000 m² large area has become an ensemble of buildings which were built between 1898 and 1941. The entire area is under monument protection.
