Berlin LSP : Urban Tech Republic

  1. 1. The Future of Berlin TXL.
  2. 2. Tegel Airport might be closing, but its appeal will long outlive the last take-off and landing. The site will then be developed as a research and industrial estate: an experimental laboratory for the city of the future. Entrepreneurs, students, investors, industrialists and scientists will all come together here to plan and develop tomorrow’s cities. Berlin TXL will become a hub for designing, manufacturing and exporting urban technologies. The ideas and designs created here will be in demand not only in Berlin, but also in cities around the world. The long-term plan- ning phase is complete and the master plan has been given the official green light. Berlin has modified the zoning to accommodate the new blueprints, and the development plans are already being processed. An Urban Tech Republic (UTR) is about to emerge in the centre of Berlin. There’s hardly a city in the world better suited than this creative metropolis. And within the city itself, there’s no better site than Berlin TXL.

  4. 4. 04 05Introduction Tomorrow’s cities Will people live on Mars? Maybe. But we might be living in space stations here on Earth. Berlin TXL. A future project for the UN. Our planet’s future lies in cities. Every week, 1.5 million people move to con- urbations. And in the next four decades we’ll have built more cities than in the past 4,000 years. Then 70% of the world’s population will inhabit 3% of the planet’s surface area. Successful urban planning faces real challenges. We’ll need new solutions for managing mo- bility, energy and resources. And we’ll also need new materials and intelligent systems to develop and manage these solutions. In short, we need urban tech- nologies. The sort of technologies that will make tomorrow’s cities inhabitable. 
  5. 5. 06 07Urban Technologies Berlin TXL We don’t know what tomorrow’s cities will look like, but we know where they will be built. Berlin TXL. The new urban DNA. Tegel Airport is about to transform into a science and industrial park for future urban technologies. New mobility concepts will be explored here. Tomorrow’s energy sources will be tested here. Innovative ideas for water management and new infra- structure solutions will be created here. Recycling will be revolutionised. Intelligent information technologies will be developed. And new materials will be invented. But real things will also be manufactured here. In Berlin TXL, the Urban Tech Republic.
  6. 6. 08 09Urban Technologies Bringing science, business and industry together Berlin TXL will be home to a new species: The specialist from another world. Berlin TXL. The concept behind the UTR. Isn’t it great when somebody has a really good idea? It’s even better when they meet somebody who knows how to make it happen. And best of all is when somebody nearby realises how to improve on that first idea. Berlin TXL is the birthplace for new ideas, bringing together students, entrepre- neurs, industrialists and scientists so that they can learn from each other. Together they can create something new. This sort of cooperation is the cornerstone of the Urban Tech Republic (UTR). What’s more, the process is guided by the prin- ciples of democracy. To get things done properly, there really is no better place than this capital city – a space where you can test your ideas right away. It’s the perfect launch pad to the cities of the future all around the world.
  7. 7. 10 11Urban Technologies Fields Energy Mobility Water Recycling Materials ICT Berlin TXL will not only bring together specialists. It will also link different fields of research. Together, they can work more effectively to benefit us all. The infrastructure of tomorrow’s city rests on four key pillars: energy, mobility, water and recycling. These are supported by innovative materials and intelligent information and communications technologies (ICT). New products need new materials, and new systems need new technologies. So that ideas are put into action. Down to the smallest detail. Right from the start. Each field is a world of its own. Combined, they form a universe of opportunities. Berlin TXL. Exploring new fields in the UTR.
  8. 8. 12 13Urban Technologies Energy Will our energy come from another star tomorrow? No, it will still come from the sun. Berlin TXL. Another step towards less CO2. Our world needs new energy – positive energy: renewables. Let’s face it, burning coal to make electricity is more than outdated. But nuclear power can’t be the solution either. To change the status quo will take more than good intentions. Technological expertise is the driving force behind the energy revolution. Berlin TXL will be a location like no other for developing and testing tomorrow’s energy concepts. This is where companies, uni- versities and start-ups will discover new energy sources and ways to meet our demand for energy. We all know we can tap more renewable energy sources than just the sun. With federal research agencies and the seat of government, Berlin is one of the best locations for the forthcoming energy transition. This isn’t all just hot air. This is where it’s happening.
  9. 9. 14 15Urban Technologies Mobility Will spaceships land in Tegel sometime? No, but they might be taking off from here. Berlin TXL. Finding alternatives to SUVs. Is a spaceship something we could one day use for public transport? Why don’t we take a look and see. Until we know more, road traffic regu- lations will continue to apply at Berlin TXL. But new mobility concepts will be developed and tried out – and with good reason. In 2011, the United States alone wasted approximately 7.2 billion litres of fuel in traffic jams. It’s high time we got things moving. Berlin is also the capital of e-mobility. Europe’s largest mass-transit market is right on the doorstep. All in all, ideal conditions for developing tomorrow’s mobility concepts.
  10. 10. 16 17Urban Technologies Water Humans are 70% water. Time to do something for those who have none. Berlin TXL. For better H2O. They say water is the oil of the 21st century. And Berlin has more than enough. The quality is excel- lent, too. Yet 1.1 billion people in the world have insufficient access to clean drinking water. We need to answer some serious questions. How do you recycle water efficiently? What sort of infrastructure do water pipelines need? Can you turn salt water into fresh water – affordably? It’s a good thing if you don’t have to answer questions like these on your own. Berlin is home to Germany’s largest water supplier. They know a thing or two about water. Incidentally, have you drunk enough water today?
  11. 11. 18 19Urban Technologies Recycling We all know plastics are made from oil, but how about turning plastics into fuel? Berlin TXL. New ways to recycle PVC. Rubbish sometimes brings out an inventive streak, espe- cially if you have too much of it. But how do you dispose of it properly? That’s a question being asked all over the world these days. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise when you consider how scarce resources have become –and the costs involved in proper waste disposal. Berlin TXL is also a lab and testing ground for new recycling methods. The results are better when people collaborate. For ex- ample, when leading research institutes get together with Germany’s largest waste disposal company. And both can be found where there’s the most waste: in the capital.
  12. 12. 20 21Urban Technologies Materials and ICT How smart will tomorrow’s city be? Give it a few years and maybe it could answer for itself. Berlin TXL. Tomorrow’s ICT. The world’s most innovative information and communication technologies (ICT) will come from Berlin TXL. From energy management apps and smart grids to systems that improve the flow of traf- fic. At the end of the day, it’s all about intelligent control systems that can be applied in any field. These systems don’t just make things more efficient and sustainable. They also make things more comfortable for all of us. But what materials will tomorrow’s technologies require? Berlin TXL will have its own special section for developing and ex- ploring uses for new materials. Mater- ials that are extremely lightweight, extremely resilient, highly conductive and smart – depending on what you want to do with them. ICT and novel materials are like software and hard- ware. The advantage is you can use them for everything, which is perfect for the city of the future. So it won’t just be smart; it’ll also be well made.
  13. 13. 22 23Urban Technologies Economic potential 2025: A €4.4 Future technologies are the market of the future. Starting any time now. trillion market. It’s good if you know today what’ll be important tomorrow – such as urban technologies. They’re a growing market for a future that will be defined by a rise in globalisation, a lack of resources and extreme urbanisation. So it’s obvious we need new solutions and new technologies for tomor- row’s cities. Urban technologies will be an esti- mated €4.4 trillion market by 2025. A lot is going to happen. We can already look forward to a better future with better opportunities. And if you’ve invested wisely, you can also look forward to some good returns.
  14. 14. Urban technologies aren’t just in demand in Germany. The whole world needs them. And you can be sure that if something’s of interest to Berlin, Shanghai will most definitely want to know about it, too. And Singa- pore. And Mumbai. And Dubai. The expertise and cutting-edge technologies coming out of Berlin TXL can also be relevant for other cities. Of course, it also works the other way round. Why not import innova- tive technology from India? Ultimately, in a networked world, exchanging ideas is crucial. Now is the time to claim your stake on the global market. And Berlin TXL is the perfect place to start. 24 25Global Market Expertise from Berlin TXL Berlin TXL has good connections to one destination in particular: the global market. Berlin TXL. As global as the WWW.
  15. 15. 26 27Berlin The place to be Would aliens land in the USA? Not if they knew about Berlin. Berlin TXL. The place to B. Wild, loud, imaginative, diverse, intense, inspir- ing, exciting – that’s  Berlin. Everyone wants to be here. This international metropolis is packed with creativity and is a magnet for new talent. And no wonder: there’s always something going on here. The city is constantly changing, and there’s something new popping up wherever and when- ever you take a look. Ideas, networks, companies; in backyards and factories, on the Web and in cafés. With 38 universities and colleges, 70 re- search institutes and 22 technology parks, you won’t find as many qualified and motivated young people anywhere else in Germany. And nowhere else are so many new companies founded. Now is the time to become part of the new Berlin.
  16. 16. 28 29Berlin University and career starters An airport is where business people come and go. No change, then, for Berlin TXL. Berlin TXL. From start-up to DAX. Berlin is a city that reinvents itself on a daily basis. The city isn’t just attracting more visitors by the day. It’s also increasingly interesting for entrepreneurs. Forty thousand new enterprises were launched here in 2012. And counting. At Berlin TXL start-ups have plenty of extra room. Up to 800 companies can sit down with university researchers and industrial firms; students can work side by side with engineers – this is where virtual concepts meet the real world. Together, they all create something completely new. Berlin is the capital of start-ups, and will continue to be so. So, instead of ‘poor and sexy’, how about: ‘Berlin is successful and sexy’?
  17. 17. Berlin is a paradise for students. And for recruiters. Berlin TXL. Destination for MSCs. Berlin is a university capital and a magnet for stu- dents, who are all made to feel very welcome here. Investments in research and development are at 3.7% of total expenditure, far above the national average. And with more than 140,000 students in the city, Berlin has a highly qualified workforce. At Berlin TXL, 5,000 students will liven up the new campus – exchanging ideas and connecting. To discover new things. And to be discovered. 30 31Berlin Founders and start-ups
  18. 18. 32 33Berlin TXL Location, location, location Berlin is at the heart of Europe. And TXL at the heart of Berlin. Industrial areas are normally situated outside of town. Hard to get to; hard to get back from – assuming you manage to find them in the first place. Berlin TXL is different. It is a huge, modern industrial estate right in the middle of the city. Already complete with an infrastructure fit for an airport. And the architecture is cool and iconic. It was built as a global hub, used by 20 million travellers every year. And right by the ring road. The city centre and federal government are only 15 minutes away. With a specialised workforce the size you would expect from a city like this. The new BER international airport is only 25 minutes away. Berlin TXL is an international address that is easy to reach. Everyone knows where it is, and things will stay that way. 15minutesto the seat of government.

  20. 20. 36 37Berlin TXL Testing grounds The first personal computer was built in a garage. What could you develop in a hangar? 495 hatotal area of Berlin TXL.
  21. 21. 38 39Berlin TXL Testing grounds Where’s the best place to start a pilot project? An airport, of course. Berlin TXL. Ideas over 2 MI2 . There are plenty of good ideas out there. The trick is how to make them come to life. Firstly, they need to be tested. And what could be better than a site as large as an airport? Ten hectares of the Berlin TXL grounds will be used solely for testing. It makes sense when you consider that 800 companies, institutes and research facilities will come and work here, together with 5,000 stu- dents. The whole airport will be one huge testing ground. With plenty of room for your ideas, too.
  22. 22. 40 41Berlin TXL Base camp Where it all begins: Terminal D. Berlin TXL. Idea to VC. The Urban Tech Republic’s base camp is now open for business. Ideas can be brought to the table, the first exchanges can take place and pilot projects can begin. Whether start-ups, students, investors, industrialists, or scientists, their first meeting point will be in Terminal D. They can come as individuals or as companies, for a day or longer. They will have offices to work in and workshops to test their ideas. Now is the time to join Berlin TXL and make your mark. It’s time for boarding.

  24. 24. 44 45Berlin TXL Creative space Creativity thrives in open spaces. And Berlin TXL has more than enough space to go round. 150,000m2 of development space. Berlin is a city of creative people and start-ups – all in search of somewhere inspiring that they can make their own. However, as established ideas gain domin- ance, this sort of space is becoming increasingly scarce. But at Berlin TXL, there is plenty of room for ideas and experiments. A lot is raw and unfinished. Traces of previous use are still evident and give the site its distinct identity. It’s the sort of place where you can still shape the future. Things will go ahead quickly once the airport closes. Around 150,000 m2 of building space is ready to be filled in the short term. Complete with features such as gates with conveyor belts and passenger walkways, hangars with crane trolleys and lots of room, workshops with platforms and direct access to the airfield. Property is also available for purchase, with units ranging from 3,000 m2 to 200,000 m2 – for work, research, development, and even for living. Airline offices and lounges will also be available for rent. So take your seat. After all, who wants an old factory floor when you can have an airport?

  29. 29. 54 55Berlin TXL Master plan and planning process So how did ALL THIS start? What will happen to Berlin TXL once the airport closes? It’s a question that has been on everyone’s lips since 2008. It took several rounds of workshops for six international teams of architects and urban and landscape planners to develop the initial plans and ideas. In various meetings, these plans were then put to additional experts and the public in Berlin, who added their own ideas. In 2011 the Berlin Senate announced the results of the planning process together with the matching zoning plan. A further series of workshops with the planning team finalised the master plan in 2012. And in 2013 the Berlin Senate came to a final agreement. At the same time, development proceedings started. These ensure that the construction plans for the site’s future use can begin once the airport is returned to its owners, Germany (BImA) and Berlin. U E2 v D W B K A/A2 E3 H I N1 N2 Z3 111

  33. 33. 62 63History and Glamour Top address The best foundation for the future is a glorious past. Berlin TXL. From Madonna to JFK. On 26 June 1963, John F. Kennedy landed at Berlin Tegel. Shortly afterwards, he announced that he, too, was a Berliner. Today, that wouldn’t be so exceptional. They say people leave one suitcase behind in Berlin – for when they next return. Chances are their luggage first saw the capital at Berlin TXL. And it’s not just politicians, business leaders and rock stars who come here. Berlin TXL has been the gateway to the world for 20 million people each year. So if you plan your future here, you’re planning it in a place with a glorious past.
