The Brucklyn Apartments Erlangen: möblierte Lifestyle-Apartements im Quartier Brucklyn zum Wohnen auf Zeit

The Brucklyn Apartments

The lifestyle apartments in THE BRUCKLYN are primarily rented by students and professionals from the surrounding firms but also by people connected with the university and business on a temporary stay in the area. The fixtures and fittings of the apartments with balcony or terrace are of particularly high quality and display great attention to detail. They contain an ultra-modern kitchenette, an exclusive shower bath, fast Internet and smart home systems. Tenants additionally benefit from many unusual in-house lifestyle extras: a gym bathed in natural light with spa area, a luxurious sauna, a rooftop terrace with outdoor pool, a football and basketball court, a private library, a design community kitchen and a cinema.

The entire indoor architecture is defined by the exceptional and brightly coloured design of rooms and furniture and the mostly tailor-made pioneering premium products made from especially high-quality materials.

A bistro in THE BRUCKLYN is planned.


The coming years will see the development of a high-quality boarding house/hotel intended for stays over the medium and long term. Also scheduled is the FACTORY, which will offer large office and laboratory spaces for start-ups. Rounding off the quarter will be dwellings, restaurants, bistros and a children’s daycare facility in the building called LIVING.

Quartier Brucklyn Logo


A new and unique work and lifestyle concept is to be realized through the BRUCKLYN quarter within the district of Erlangen-Bruck. It is intended for people who have high aspirations of themselves, their lives and the way in which they reside, live and work. Included in this concept are inspiring residential, working and community spaces of premium quality and with a good design, a premium level of accompanying services for both private and professional life, a high degree of networking amongst the occupants, short routes and flexible mobility. And of course a genuine sustainability concept.

“Our tenants place the highest demands on themselves and on how they reside, live and work. We offer our premium range of services at highly attractive academic and commercial locations to cater for this innovative, environmentally aware, connected working pattern and lifestyle. This future-shaping real estate concept has been proving its worth for years and undergoes further optimization with each project.”

Locational benefits of Erlangen

Erlangen is a growing commercial and academic location. As a patent centre, Erlangen attracts both national and international inventive minds. Awarded second place for innovation in the Reuters ranking, Friedrich-Alexander-University appeals to up-and-coming young students with high aspirations. It is a place where many innovations arise that lead on to companies and start-ups. Furthermore, many young professionals, temporary employees and consultants live here and work in the large companies nearby such as Framatome, Siemens and Siemens Campus, Adidas, Puma and Schaeffler.


A district with perfect transport connections: 200 m to the urban rail station, 5 minutes to the centre, 1 km to the motorway, 20 minutes to Nuremberg.  Branches of top companies such as Framatome, Siemens, Adidas, Puma and Schaeffler are located in the vicinity.

Quartier Brucklyn Erlangen: Auszeichnung für Nachhaltigkeit mit dem Handelsblatt Energy Awards 2017


The ambitious target for the neighbourhood is to increase energy efficiency and comfort to a maximum level for its tenants while achieving near-on CO2 neutrality. Even now, 80% of electricity is already generated from renewable energies.

These values are attained through the intelligent interplay of sustainable production, storage and distribution of energy.

Energy is generated via a perfect interlinking of the most innovative energy concepts such as combined heating and power stations, concrete core activation, geothermal energy or photovoltaic systems.

This is achieved by connecting the sectors of heating, cooling, electricity generation and mobility via a local heating, power and data network. A hydrogen storage system and electric mobility optimize the energy flows.

The KfW40 building, which is energy-optimized with the highest-quality materials, and its tenants, who are equipped with smart home systems, are digitally connected, which allows for the optimum use of resources. Heating, cooling and electricity are produced and stored locally within the neighbourhood in an energy centre via cogeneration of heat and power. To supplement this, there are photovoltaic units on all roofs and a geothermal probe for regenerative heating and cooling. In summer, an absorption process transforms heat into cooling.

The energy is distributed optimally via a local heating, power and data network. Heat accumulators and batteries balance out the load variations. As a global first, a liquid organic hydrogen carrier is being used for storage within the context of the building, which enables energy to be stored with no limits.

The inclusion of e-mobility into this multisector system through electrical and data technology creates further synergies. Vehicles are charged according to user criteria (vehicle booking, availability) and current status (load requirement, storage levels). As a result, vehicle batteries function as peak load storage facilities.

For this innovative and visionary energy concept, the BRUCKLYN neighbourhood received the Handelsblatt Energy Award 2017 in the category of Smart Infrastructure.
