GeWoSued is a housing-cooperative owning about 2.600 appartments and family homes at twelve locations in the North, East and South of Berlin. The cooperative was founded in 1919.
GeWoSued offers housing at moderate costs for all ages and lifestyles. GeWoSued strives to keep the service charges low by encouraging the dwellers to contact the employees directly. For the employees dwellers are not tenants but users.
GeWoSued is anxious to lower the carbon footprint of all its housing units by thermal insulation and combinations of decentral heat and power plants with photovoltaics.
As some of its older buildings are listed as monuments of the cooperative housing movement in the early 20th century, GeWoSued strives to preserve the traditional building techniques and to develop them further for housing in the 21st century.
