we design tomorrow

From individual projects to urban integrated city and tourism districts, we rethink places where people are the focus. Our development projects include the living, working, hotel, vacation and tourism clusters. They are USPs for new sustainability, technology and well-being solutions and shape the future of intelligent building. The global reach of our company gives us vision and expertise, our organizational partners give us insights and nuances that are refined locally – together they create successful values.

Connect things. The little things will only be noticed by a few. We take care of them all – equally. With F&W Blackpencil, every interaction is exceptional every day, regardless of development class or region. We never stop looking for ways to create value for our customers and partners. From everyday activities to once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Placemaking to programming. Our approach starts with the incremental – and goes to the exponential.

We deal with different development options from unmodernized commercial buildings, plots of land, roof areas with building potential to interesting plots of land that are not yet ready for construction. Over the years we have planned many properties and conversions with or without building permits – and played a key role in the planning of numerous commercial and residential conversions. Thanks to our long-standing network of experts, which we know both in the industry and as customers, we can develop railings for increasingly difficult-to-find buildings.

We use our 30 years of expertise and in-depth knowledge of the Berlin and international real estate market as well as our extensive contact base to identify buildings and development areas with one or both of the following characteristics:

Opportunities that enable us to use our expertise in architecture, planning and construction to add value.

We apply clear, strategic thinking and forensic, hands-on management to enhance the value of the properties we develop. This can be improving top-line performance by improving the conditions of use or expanding the area, improving the NOI by increasing efficiency or using our planning and development expertise in the event of a change in use or refurbishment of a property.

Opportunities that offer potential for “above average growth”.

This may be due to changing supply-demand characteristics in a particular sector or sub-market, increased investment in local infrastructure, or changing social or demographic trends.
