  • This modern, attractive multi-family complex is located at Washington Square. Forty-two residential units are organized in four buildings connected by a common underground parking garage. The complex is at Washington Square, on the former site of WAN Ifra (world press organization). Washington Square marks the transition from the Martinsviertel district, with its Wilhelminian-style developments, to the villa-like Komponistenviertel.

    This extremely attractive residential area is only a few hundred meters south of Löwentor (historic Lions Gate park entrance), the Rosenhöhe Park (landscaped English-style rose garden), and the Mathildenhöhe (area that includes private villas built by Jugendstil architects). Also close: Oberfeld, an agricultural area within the city limits.
