DIEAG receives planning permission for hotel conversion of Mizar Gate Office complex

  • Refurbishment of two of three buildings for future tenant NOVUM Hospitality begins
  • Completion scheduled for Q1 2025
  • 94% occupancy in the complex, with 1,135 sqm of office space still available to let


The DIEAG Group (DIEAG) is commencing the conversion and expansion of two of the three properties in the Mizar Gate Office complex for hotel use by NOVUM Hospitality. Planning permission for the conversion has now been granted. The lease for 12,405 sqm in Buildings A and C was already signed in March 2023. Under the long-stay brand “acora – Living in the City,” 186 serviced apartments will be created in Building C. In Building A, 158 rooms will be realised for the lifestyle hotel “the niu Pax.” Completion and handover to the tenant is scheduled for the first quarter of 2025. Ganter Architekten, based in Bernau near Berlin, and DIEfabrik GmbH, Oldenburg, are the architects for the conversion and expansion work.


Maik Andrack, Head of Letting at DIEAG, says: “With the conversion of the project, which was originally planned as a pure office complex, we have reacted early to the emerging market changes and, together with the Novum Hospitality Group, are creating a sustainable tenant mix with two attractive residential concepts for the Neu-Schönefeld location.”

The complex, consisting of an office building (“Building B”) and two hotel properties (“Building A” and “Building C”), is currently 94 per cent let. Andrack continues: “The tenants in Building B include well-known companies such as Molex, Züblin, e.distherm Carrier and Swagelok, who have made a long-term commitment to the location. This leaves only 1,135 sqm of lettable space available in units of between 300 and 650 sqm, for which we are currently in promising discussions.”

David Etmenan, Chief Executive Officer & Owner NOVUM Hospitality, says: “The use of two different accommodation concepts at the Neu-Schönefeld site meets the existing demand from both short and long-term travelers. Our lifestyle brand ‘the niu’ comprises an attractive upper midscale hotel concept. Our new ‘the niu Pax’ welcomes its guests in 158 modern guest rooms. The ‘acora Berlin Airport Living the City’ offers modern living and working spaces in the form of 186 serviced apartments, combined with lively community spaces for long-term travelers. Both buildings are scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2025.”

Tenants and future hotel users will have a total of 240 parking spaces at their disposal, 89 of which are in the underground garage and 151 above ground. In addition, the connection capacities for a total of 10 dual charging points will be installed. Thanks to the city highway and well-developed public transport connections, Berlin’s city center and the Berliner Ring can be reached quickly.
