Our location in Germany
Our office at Rungestr. 25, 10179 Berlin, Germany is located in “The former cigarette factory Josetti, now Josetti-Höfe, at Rungestraße No. 22-25 in Berlin Mitte, built 1906 to 1907. The vast complex with several inner yards extends up to the river Spree. The four-story facade with three five-story risalits follows the curved run of the street. The complex was used by the cigarette factory up to WWII and later by the GDR computer chip manufacturer Robotron, the State Office for Unsettled Property Questions and (unitl 2006) the “Dokument Cinema”, among others. Apartments, offices and small service enterprises (media, culture, fashion, design, etc.) are now located here. The building complex has been designated a historic landmark. On the left, the corner of Jannowitzcenter can be seen.” (Unmodified citation from Jörg Zägel – CC BY-SA 3.0 from Wikipedia) In the last decade it was fully redeveloped in order to meet modern standards. In the course of the redevelopment works, the total office space in the building was expanded to 14,600 sqm. Besides the German branch of Süle Law Firm, Josetti Höfe´s current tenants are well-known companies from the media and finance sectors. The building is a protected monument.
