Theres not much information to be found about the Heating Plant, but theres enough information about the surrounding area that one can speculate about its history. Judging from its architecture, the building was most likely constructed sometime after the late 1940s, early 1950s. The land that it sits on was used by the Soviet Military after the end of the Second World War, and the SMAD (The Soviet Military Administration of Germany) was just around the corner. It seems most plausible that the Heating Plant was constructed to supply the soviet barracks and military installations next door. 

The heating plant used to have a chimney, but that along with several other buildings on the site have been long torn down. It seems like this Heating Plant was abandoned when the Soviet Military Administration pulled out of Berlin and Germany, and the city saw no more use for the remaining infrastructure. Its been a good few year since these images have been taken (2014), and it could very well be that the building has already been torn down or burnt to the ground and damaged like the nearby Flugzeughallen (which date all the way back to the First World War).

Speaking of decommissioned East German infrastructure, we managed to have a look inside the largest East German Nuclear Powerplant – the Kernkraftwerk Greifswald. Its in the process of being torn down (until the year 2030) – but offered a fantastic glimpse into the Soviet Nuclear Technology used to power the Eastern Block.

  1. Went here in February this year, and it’s sadly totally demolished. The nearby airplane hangars were still intact and (somewhat) accessible.
