Ernsting’s family moving into Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße / Tegel Quartier

The German textile retailer Ernsting’s family is going to open a 220 sqm large store in spring this year at the groundfloor of the newly built pedestrian zone Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße / Tegel Quartier.

Berlin, 25th April 2022

Regional manager Dirk Alsleben is already looking forward to the opening event:

“Ernsting’s family has lots of regular customers who come to shop with us since many years for themselves and their family – every year we continue to grow. We are very happy and proud to contribute to the remarkable success with our new store in the district Berlin-Tegel and the customers there”.

Ernsting’s family is especially popular amongst mothers: The colorful variety of products ranges from modern home accessories to the latest, constantly changing fashion-highlights for babies, children, adolescents, women, and even underwear for men. Ernsting's family places emphasis on the highest quality standards at surprisingly fair prices, so that the shopping experience for the family is especially pleasing.

Ernsting’s family is one of the largest cross-channel-supplier among all German textile retailers, with around 1,900 stores in Germany and Austria, an online-presence that has already been awarded several times and around 12.000 employees in total. In the fiscal year 2020/21 Ernsting’s family recorded a turnover of around 1.04 billion euros. The company with its headquarter in Coesfeld (Westfalen) is offering fashion and accessories for the whole family with a focus on underwear, women’s and children’s clothing. Good quality at surprisingly low prices is the premise of the company, continuously opening up new distribution channels and sales locations within a social and ecological responsibility.

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. The architectural offices Max Dudler, Pechtold, Ortner & Ortner and Rautenbach were involved in designing the new Fußgängerzone Gorkistraße.

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”, says Harald Gerome Huth, CEO and Managing Director of HGHI Holding GmbH. Common retailers like REWE, P&C or dm as well as the office tenant Deutsche Rentenversicherung Bund are tenants of the future oriented pedestrian zone. 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.
