Some 20 years after the opening of the Sony Center am Potsdamer Platz, owner Oxford Properties Group, a leading global real estate investor, asset manager and business builder, announces its plans to invest over €200 million to update and transform the historic destination. Oxford is working together with the original design team from JAHN Architecture and PWP Landscape Architecture on the new masterplan which respects the Sony Center’s architectural importance for locals and visitors. The redevelopment plans aim to place a greater focus on human-centric aspects of the Sony Center campus including optimising workplaces for health and wellbeing, world-class retail and future-focused amenity. This will be complemented by an annual programme of events in sport, culture and entertainment that will be accessible not only for the Sony Center office community, but also for Berliners and visitors. Initial work began earlier this year, while major construction activity is due to start in January, with the majority of the development expected to complete by the end of 2023.
