#9 Real Estate as a Driver of Change

The title seems almost a contradiction as we see the housing and affordability crisis mainly driven by extractive real estate business models in many metropolitan areas around the globe.

But this is not carved in stone. We can truly sense into the soul of a property and feel into what that space within its given surrounding really wants to serve for. And create the circumstances that enable a broad variety of stakeholders to cocreate a place full of abundance including the arts and take sustainability really to the next level.  

Welcome to explore the episode with Frank Sippel, Founder of Real Future, and developer of a bunch of alternative real estate projects such as Holzmarkt and Malzfabrik.

We explore how real estate can be a very hands-on, palpable driver of change, especially doubling down on the new piece to be developed at Fürstenberg an der Havel, only 50 minutes from Berlin central station. Here at Röblinsee, Real Future will build a mixed-use quarter with all its outstanding potential for high location attractiveness. Living, actively on and near the water is the central credo of Quarter Havelfabrik.

Further information on the development of Havelfabrik can be found here.

We truly need groups of groups that share a common North Star, all while they still pursue their own goals, obviously. This is an undertaking that has never been done before on a global scale. But we know leaps in history are possible, from the abolition of slavery, the women’s liberations movement, the end of Apartheid, the fall of the Berlin wall.
