Taking Berlin to New Heights with the New Estrel Tower

Father and son duo are transforming the city's skyline and creating a modern, innovative hotel & event space

BERLIN, June 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Opening in 2025, the impressive Estrel Tower is rising at a breathtaking pace. Back in the mid-1990s, Ekkehard Streletzki became esteemed as a Berlin visionary for his creation of the Estrel Hotel in a not-yet developed sector of the city. Today his son Maxim is at the helm of an inspiring skyscraper project.

In addition to 525 hotel rooms, apartments and state-of-the-art meeting/office/co-working spaces, a 2,000m² (21,500 sq.ft.) event space will be built into Tower’s base. At the heart of the structure is the open-plan atrium filled with plants and natural light. Spanning the 43rd and 44th floors, a farm-to-table restaurant will serve food directly from the source. Another highlight is the top floor Skybar with an impressive outdoor terrace offering panoramic views of Berlin.

Sustainability has been central to planning. In addition to green roofs with solar panels and wildflower meadows in the outdoor areas, the building’s facade has special vertical fins that adapt to the sun’s rays and regulate the building’s temperature. Interior design uses regional wood and recycled materials, and considerable parking spaces are reserved for bicycles. The overall concept is in keeping with the visionary tradition of the Streletzki family and is sure to be appreciated by all who frequent the property.

When asked what impact he envisions the Tower will have, Maxim commented, “Of course, we strive for a positive effect on the area. This is where the city starts, and the Tower marks that border like a gateway to the city.”
