Terraced house here – large housing estate there; This is how Pankow grows

“A city as big as Stendal is moving here.” This is how Berlin’s Senator for Building Andreas Geisel (SDP) explains why housing construction is a top priority in Pankow. The latest growth forecasts say that 37,000 people will make Berlin’s already largest district their home by 2040. If the equivalent of a city like Stendal moves to Pankow, !then the 450,000 population mark will be broken here. Then Berlin’s growth centre would have more than twice the population of Erfurt, the capital of Thuringia.
