Success Requires Flexibility.


Flexibility and mobility are the recipes for a prosperous future. They already come into play when you pick a location. The Flexgate complex offers both, due to its great transport links. It is located directly next to the new BER airport. The commute to downtown Berlin takes about 30 minutes only.

The architecture is inspired by the needs of present-day companies: 14,297 sqm of efficient state-of-the-art office space are just what tenants want. Open-plan, private and combination offices – the interior fit-out is structured in ways that will permit any kind of partition plan. The built-in flexibility will also permit subsequent alterations. In July 2022, the first tenants of FLEXGATE began to move in.

Flexgate also gives you greater leeway in terms of pricing. Rents are reasonable and well below the inner-city average. And at 240%, the town of Schönefeld boasts the lowest trade tax multiplier anywhere in Germany.

Berlin Meets Growth Region:


Berlin’s economy is growing. For years, the greater Berlin area has been getting top scores in Germany’s growth rankings. The dynamic is quite impressive. Since 2014, Berlin’s gross domestic product has grown considerably faster than that of Germany as a whole. In 2019 alone, the city reported 2.6% growth whereas the GDP in the rest of the country increased by 0.6%.

Another clear sign is the number of roughly 40,000 start-ups per year. Berlin is aiming high. The robust growth dynamic is also reflected on the labour market – nowhere else in Germany have so many new jobs been created. All of these figures show: Berlin has lost none of its appeal. It is a forward-looking place. Businesses find ideal conditions for prospering in the city.

The obvious flipside of growth: Floor space becomes a rare commodity. Prices keep going up. Creative solutions are called for. Solutions like Flexgate. Here, the locational advantages of Berlin are matched by a unique and large location with a bright future: the airport corridor.

With Tesla into the Future:


BER and Gatelands are locate inside the commercial centre of the Berlin-Brandenburg metro region. It is a forward-looking place. Brandenburg is the envy of Europe for becoming home to Tesla’s first European Gigafactory. American lithium-ion battery manufacturer Microvast recently opened its first European manufacturing base and Europe head office in Ludwigsfelde south of Berlin.

The combined gravitational pull of Berlin’s new airport and the inflow of high-tech manufacturers is tremendous. Overall, banks and business developers in the immediate vicinity of BER predict a need for 85,000 new jobs and 2,400 companies moving here before 2035.

Where Business Takes off:


Soon, Berlin’s new airport will handle around 34 million passengers annually again. Its capacity could be expanded to a maximum of 55 million air travellers annually under the BER master plan for 2040. Around 50,000 new jobs will be created by BER. In fact, some forecasts predict as many as 85,000 new jobs in the airport’s greater area between now and 2035.

The economic significance of the airport is therefore enormous. The corridor extending from the airport to the inner city is expected to see massive economic growth. Flexgate exploits this dynamic. After all, it is just minutes away from the BER airport gates.

  • 193 destinations
  • 58 countries
  • 90 airlines and 55 million passengers by 2040
  • More arrivals and departures than at any other airport
  • 140 ha of development land around the airport
  • 40,000 new residents in towns in the immediately surrounding area

(all figures provided by FBB, 2019)

Gatelands Kienberg Business Park:


Gateland and Flexgate paved the way. On more than 100,000 sqm, the future is already under development at the Gatelands Business Park. Several properties are already completed or under construction: The “Northgate” multi-storey car park is open for business, while the B&B Hotel Berlin Airport is already undergoing a refurbishment. The Moxy Hotel and “The Unique” – Green Living & Working are about to open for business. Construction of the Airport Office One will commence shortly.

With its infrastructure fully in place, this business park provides 100,000 sqm for an attractive mix of uses including offices, hotels, services and retail – forming a self-contained microcosm. Rather than representing an uninspiring collection of offices, it will become a vibrant and liveable quarter.

The Flexgate Concept:


Efficient, effective and flexible – the new building follows a clear concept. The units are supposed to adapt to your objectives. The interior fit-out is to support your work. At the same time, the seven-storey building meets state-of-the-art standards in terms of form, function and sustainability.

Units of 424 sqm can be structured as private, combination or open-plan offices. No matter what configuration you choose, it will be complemented by meeting rooms, quiet zones, break rooms and a kitchenette along with high-end entryways. Fit-out features include optimal sound and noise abatement, state-of-the-art M&E engineering including Cat 7 cabling, as well as dis-trict heating, LED lighting and exclusive roof terraces.

  • 14,297 sqm GIF of gross lettable area on 7 floors
  • Flexible units of 424 sqm available
  • Kitchenettes included
  • Modern noise abatement
  • Under-floor cavities, Cat 7 cabling and LED lighting

DGNB Gold certificate:


Sustainable construction pays off – especially for businesses. It boosts employee satisfaction and productivity. It also brings down the sick leave ratio. And it does so demonstrably, permanently and significantly. According to internationally recognised surveys, the sick leave ratio drops by up to 5% while the productivity increases measurably by 3% to 5%. At the same time, a welcoming ambience is a building’s equivalent of a “soft skill” that is conducive to a healthy workplace climate, which plays an ever more important role in the war for talents.

With this in mind, Flexgate was optimised from the start for all three dimensions of sustainability – environmental, economical, and social. Everything from water-saving fittings, to low-emission materials, and all the way to a charging infrastructure for electric vehicles was factored in. The effort was well worth it. The DGNB German Sustainable Building Council awarded its GOLD certificate to Flexgate.

  • Consistent optimisation of the carbon footprint and environmental life cycle
  • Environmentally friendly construction for low-level emissions
  • Carefully chosen materials for high air quality
  • Air quality measurements to continue beyond date of completion
  • Healthy indoor climate and optimal admission of daylight
  • Excellent infrastructure for bicycles and electric mobility

At a Glance:


14,297 sqm in gross lettable area on 7 floors

Flexgate will amaze you with its efficiency. In terms of fit-out and layout, the attractive offices are fully tailored to the needs of modern companies. The brief for the architects: to give such companies more freedom to manoeuvre by providing flexible office units and new interior design options.

Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
The data controller has integrated Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to Internet sites. A web analytics service collects, among other things, data on the website a user accessed immediately before visiting our website (i.e. the referrer), which subpages of our website the user has accessed and how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. Web analytics is mainly used to optimise a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

Google Analytics is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the suffix “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this suffix, Google shortens and anonymises the IP address of users who access our website from a member state of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google Analytics will use this data to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information collected to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the user’s device. For more information on cookies, see above. By creating the cookie, Google is able to analyse your use of our website. Each time a visitor accesses one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics plug-in has been integrated, the user’s browser is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics plug-in to transmit data to Google for the purposes of online analysis. During this technical process, personal data, such as the user’s IP address, is transmitted to Google. Google uses this data, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently uses this data to invoice for its services.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the time our website was accessed, the location from which it was accessed and the frequency of visits to our website by the specific user. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

You may refuse the use of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by using the appropriate settings in your browser and thus permanently refuse the use of cookies. This prevents Google from placing a cookie on your device. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via your Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, you can object to and prevent the collection and processing of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on from the link This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information on visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics.

The use of Google Maps and the data and information collected via Google Maps is subject to Google’s Terms of Service and Google’s additional Terms of Service for Google Maps

Data protection for job applicants
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing job applications. This processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits their application documents to us by electronic means, for example by email or via a job application form on our website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data he or she has transmitted to us will be stored for the purpose of preparing and concluding the employment relationship in compliance with statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, his or her application documents will be automatically erased two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part stand in the way of erasure. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

Rights of data subjects As a data subject, you have the right:
(1) to request information regarding your personal data we process in accordance with Article 15 of the GDPR. In particular, you can request information relating to the processing; the categories of personal data we store and process; the categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed; the planned retention period; the existence of your right to have your personal data rectified or erased or to have restrictions placed on the processing of your personal data; the right to object to such processing; the existence of your right to lodge a complaint; the origin of your data, if not collected by us; and the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, where applicable, meaningful information on their details;
(2) to request the rectification or completion of any inaccurate or incomplete personal data we store or process in accordance with Article 16 of the GDPR;
(3) to request the erasure of your personal data we store and process, unless such processing is necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to fulfil a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims in accordance with Article 17 of the GDPR;
(4) to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data in accordance with Article 18 of the GDPR if you dispute the accuracy of the data; if the processing is unlawful, but you refuse to have it erased; and if we no longer require the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or if you have filed an objection against the processing of your personal data in accordance with Article 21 of the GDPR;
(5) to receive your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to have those data transmitted to another data controller without hindrance in accordance with Article 20 of the GDPR;
(6) to revoke your consent to us at any time in accordance with Article 7 (3) of the GDPR. As a result, we will no longer process any of the personal data you have transmitted to us that is covered by your withdrawal of consent; and
(7) to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in accordance with Article 77 of the GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your habitual place of residence or work, or our office.

Right to object
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR, including profiling based on these provisions.

If you exercise your right to object, we will not process your data further, unless there are legitimate grounds for us to do so that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If your data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you may object to such processing at any time. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to direct marketing.

If you object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.

You have the right to object to the processing of your data for information society services by means of automated procedures using technical specifications, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.

Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:

(1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and the data controller,
(2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, or
(3) is based on your explicit consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9 (1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9 (2) a) or g) applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests are in place.

In the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the data controller, the right to express your point of view and to contest the decision.

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.

Data security
Like many other websites, we use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. Usually this is 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can see whether a page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form from the icon of a closed padlock displayed in your browser’s status bar.

We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss and destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. We continuously improve our security measures in line with technological advances.

Validity and changes to this data protection statement
This data protection statement is currently valid and was last revised in May 2018.
