Innovative mobility concept of Gewobag

The diversity of our city is also reflected in the mobility of Berliners. Multimodal transport offers are increasingly changing the habits of getting around. public transport ridership is increasing, as is the number of cyclists. A wide variety of sharing services – from scooters to cargo bikes to cars – are being made available in increasing numbers. as good alternatives develop, owning a car becomes less important. gewobag supports this positive development of sustainable and space-efficient urban development by developing its own innovative mobility concepts for tenants.

To develop new and innovative mobility services, we are constantly on the lookout for interesting partners in the fields of parking, charging, and sharing. We offer a wide range of opportunities for cooperation with both startups and established companies. We welcome your ideas and offers.

Selected current pilot projects

Mobility hubs
Together with BVG, we are developing and implementing mobility hubs in our portfolio. These are places where we offer added value for the tenants in our neighborhoods through sharing services (car, scooter, bike sharing), but also through other services (charging infrastructure, parcel stations). In this way, we improve the service for our tenants and at the same time make a valuable contribution to sustainable urban development.

In april 2019, berlin’s first jelbi station already opened on one of our sites in kreuzberg. Further hubs will soon follow at the jakob-kaiser-platz subway station and at the landsberger allee/petersburger strabe streetcar junction.

Charging infrastructure
we combine living and e-mobility. In the so-called "berlin model" – the provision of charging stations accessible to all electromobilists in the city – we are cooperating with allego, an expert in charging station infrastructure. The charging stations being built on our properties are open to the public and available for e-fueling for everyone.

gewobag is a Berlin project partner in the EU-funded MEISTER project. In this project from the horizon 2020 research and innovation program, new mobility solutions and services are being developed to simplify electromobility and make the energy supply to vehicles intelligent.

As one of the largest and most progressive housing companies in germany, we are working hard to develop and integrate additional services and communication channels that can be offered through digital channels. As a result, we hope to add value for our tenants and improve communication and management processes.

We are open to new partnerships with startups and already established companies for the successful development and implementation of digital models. We are also generally open to cooperations with universities.

Care services

Our tenants and their satisfaction are always the focus of our actions. To enable them to live independently in their familiar surroundings in old age, we want to work with partners to develop concepts in the area of care services.

Already existing concepts such as the classic senior living or our residential!active house in zobelitz street will be supplemented in the future with other offers. We are currently working on concepts for day care and outpatient care in people’s own homes.

In order to develop further offers for our tenants, we are interested in cooperating with outpatient care service providers who fit in with the values and statutes of our company. We are also interested in innovations relating to age-appropriate living, z.B. In products from the field of ambient assisted living (AAL). We look forward to hearing from you.


Parcel volumes are steadily increasing. due to the growing ecommerce sector this trend will continue in the coming years. In line with the trend, we are investigating the topic of storage and parcel stations in order to offer our tenants additional services in this area as well. As part of a pilot project, we equipped the new construction of student accommodation at amrumer strabe 16 and 36 with combined letter and parcel boxes. We are looking for entrepreneurial and innovative contacts for a possible roll-out of parcel box systems in existing vehicles.

Other new business areas
