Redeveloped Tegel Airport (TXL) – “The future site of Berlin” Urban Tech Republic (UTR) sign on anchor tenants
Today, the first technology-focused companies have signed their leases at the former German airport. Approximately 17,222 square feet of offices and workshops as well as approximately 64,583 square feet of experimental space are already in use today.
BerlinVay-based Vay Technology GmbH is already using workshops and garages as well as experimental areas on the former traffic lane for its remote-controlled cars. Thomas von der Oheco-founder and CEO of Vay: “Vay is developing teledrive technology that allows customers to control an electric vehicle via an app, which stops in minutes – driverless and remotely controlled. Since September, we have been testing our system in Berlin TXL We had the pleasure of being the first tenants of the former Berlin the airport, as we find ideal conditions at this test site. The size of the space and the associated equipment impose no limits on our mobility company with global ambitions.”
BIT GmbH, a young technology company that carries out research and development projects on behalf of Berlin institutions in fields such as battery development and 3D printing, also moved in. Benjamin Wette explains: “We were looking for a larger experimental space for prototyping; we were very cramped in our old site. Here we have a better environment, and the research and industrial park under construction with its many new opportunities for cooperation is the ideal atmosphere for us.”
According to Gudrun bag, managing director of Tegel Projekt GmbH, the main builder of UTR, these first companies show the importance of such a location. Tegel Airport will become a crucial hub for R&D in Berlin and will strengthen from Berlin business and scientific community.
