The “Mercedes Platz” will be the heart of the new quarter between the Mercedes-Benz-Arena (currently the O2 Arena) and Muehlenstrasse which runs parallel to the River Spree at the Eastside Gallery in Berlin-Friedrichshain. The Client is the Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG).
AUKETT + HEESE are responsible for Design and Execution of the buildings on a site with 20.000 sq.m. area. 

A multifunctional hall (“Music Box”) for 4.000 visitors, a cinema complex with 2.500 seats and 14 screens, a lifestyle bowling concept as well as restaurants, bars, two hotels and an office building, together with a gross area of 60,000 sq.m., and with 400 car-parking spaces in an underground car-park, will be built by 2018. The public space – the “Platz” – is divided into an urban square in the south at Muehlenstrasse, and the event square in the north.
