This is Frankfurter Allee, once East Germany's grand boulevard and the backdrop to communist parades, the Allee stretches out to the west of Frankfurter Tor and is the impressive setting for this exclusive penthouse. This is an historic address, shortlisted as a potential UNESCO world cultural heritage site: Frankfurter Allee. Like Karl-Marx-Allee, this noble boulevard is lined with what are affectionately known as “gingerbread buildings”. Built in the 1950s, these apartment complexes emerged from the architectural traditions of socialist classicism and have since been granted heritage protection status. “Block G”, known among locals as one of “Stalin's buildings”, was originally designed by the architect Hanns Hopp, who adopted elements of the Berliner Classicism typified by Karl-Friedrich Schinkel. Irrespective of these earlier influences, the politics of the age dictated that the architecture conforms with Stalinist monumentalism, as was true for all of the buildings along what was once called “Stalinallee”. This prestigious boulevard was ultimately designed by six different architects: Prof. Hermann Henselmann, Egon Hartmann, Richard Paulick, Kurt W. Leucht, Hanns Hopp and Karl Souradny. Friedrichshain is one of Berlin's most vibrant quarters. Its “gingerbread buildings” are popular among the creative class and are home to a number of major international artists and the showrooms of influential photography galleries. Friedrichshain gains much of its charm from being a well-established and authentic district. Boxhagener Platz typifies this, offering a wide range of restaurants and cafés, along with organic supermarkets, post offices, flower shops, bakeries, antique stores, a weekly farmers' market, small cobblers, dry-cleaning, and toy stores – authentic neighbourhood life and everything today's lifestyles demand. The district also has a number of large shopping centers, and Alexanderplatz is no more than a few minutes away. The penthouse on Frankfurter Tor is ideally situated to provide ready access to Berlin's public transportation system, with nearby stations for the U5 su
