Topping-out ceremony at EDGE East Side Tower
October 18, 2022
The topping-out ceremony for the EDGE East Side Tower, located in Berlin’s district of Friedrichshain, took place on October 12th, 2022, and as a result, another landmark in Berlin has reached its final height of 140 metres. After less than three years of construction, the building has 37 floors and a total area of more than 80,500 m². A fantastic achievement by everyone involved!
Andreas Geisel, Berlin’s senator for Urban Development, and Coen van Oostrom, founder and CEO of EDGE Technologies, performed the traditional ceremony, which was duly celebrated with many guests.
The high-rise building was designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG), which we actively support as a local architect. The East Side Tower is still under construction and is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. The topping-out ceremony marked an important milestone.
