Reopening of the famous Markthalle Tegel at Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße / Tegel Quartier on the 21st October 2021

Berlin, 15th October 2021

As part of the major HGHI-project “Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße / Tegel Quartier” (Gorkistraße 11-21, 13507 Berlin) in the district Reinickendorf/Tegel, the famous market hall “Markthalle Tegel” will open its doors only a few meters away from its old location in a brand-new look with around 28 stands.

Now equipped with two entrances, one via Gorkistraße 16-20 and newly also via Grußdorfstraße 5/6, the customers now have an even better access to the barrier-free market hall at the ground floor. The longstanding, broad offer consists of fresh food like fruit, vegetable, fish and meat as well as stands with specialities and delicacies. The Markthalle Tegel opens Monday to Saturday from 8 am until 8 pm.

With respect to the modernisation of the Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße / Tegel Quartier the Markthalle Tegel, which is dealing in different goods back since 1908 and looks back to over 100 years of history, is an important part of the project development. It is essential for the pedestrian zone Gorkistraße and a common meeting point for young and old. Markthalle Tegel is well known even beyond the boundaries of Tegel, attracting many potential clients from other districts of Berlin to Gorkistraße. Therefore, it is a place where the personal contact between customers and sellers plays a very important role. The market hall impresses with a versatile mix of tenants and elaborate interior details, resembling food markets of southern countries.

“For many residents of Tegel the Markthalle Tegel was an important part of the pedestrian zone Gorkistraße. For this reason, we wanted to create something special with our new market hall. By developing a modern design combined with the historical flair, we tried to ensure keeping the tradition of this shopping location. We very much hope that the residents of Berlin will like our newly designed market hall”, says Harald Gerome Huth, owner and Managing Director of HGHI Holding GmbH.

All tenants of the market hall are happily anticipating:

“As a long-standing family business and long-term tenant of the market hall in Tegel, we are full of enthuthiasm and are looking forward to contribute our part to the diverse and unique atmosphere of Markthalle Tegel through our fresh fruit and vegetable and our high-quality cheese specialities”, says Bettina Sommer, who even operates two stands at Markthalle Tegel: one selling fruit & vegetable and one with cheese specialities.

Marco Stark, owner of the butcher Fleischerei Stark emphasises: “We are proud to be part of Markthalle Tegel again and are especially happy to impress all our devoted customers, who have been with us in Tegel since years, with our broad assortment of meat and sausage specialities”.

“Finally, the waiting comes to an end! We are happy to delight our customers again, after such a long time, with our amazing products”, says family Dieckmann who operate the stand Fisch Tegel.

A shopping street reinvents itself: about the HGHI-project Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße / Tegel Quartier

The unparallel project throughout Germany stands for the extensive modernisation and enhancement of the around 250 m long pedestrian area Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße, including the former shopping center “Tegel-Center”, the former shopping center “Hertie” as well as the long-standing market hall “Markthalle Tegel”. The revitalisation of the Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße is one of the biggest projects in the history of HGHI and consists of four different construction phases in total.

On a total floor area of around 90,000 sqm HGHI is building around 36,000 sqm retail space and 28,000 sqm office space. More than 80% of all rental spaces is already leased, a significant success for the project. Common retailers like REWE, P&C or dm as well as the office tenant Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund are tenants at the HGHI project. In addition to the already existing brands, the new Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße / Tegel Quartier will offer a huge variety of shopping possibilities with more than 100 retail shops in total.

The shopping street is located in the north of Berlin, precisely the district Tegel, the lively center of the area Reinickendorf. The infrastructure links to Berlin transport network are excellent. In only 5 minutes by car you reach the motorway A111. The projects own car park provides around 320 parking spaces. Due to its immediate vicinity (1 minute by foot) to the railway and metro as well as numerous bus lines, the shopping street has an outstanding connection to the public transport service. And as cycling in the city is getting more and more attractive, HGHI created a covered parking space for bicycles with over 200 spaces in the direct vicinity to the project.

In celebration of the partly finished project a soft opening already took place in July 2021 with the official inauguration and opening of some shops like REWE or dm. From autumn onwards this year customers will be able to go shopping in two thirds of all shops. The completion of the project is scheduled for 2022. The project development with its new and versatile shopping possibilities will increase the attractiveness of the entire northern part of Berlin.
