Berlin Tegel Airport will be closed no more than six months after the opening of the new international airport for Berlin and Brandenburg in Berlin-Schönefeld (BER). Over the next 20 years, the site will then see the construction of a research and industrial park for Urban Technologies: Berlin TXL – the Urban Tech Republic.
The focus of Berlin TXL will be on the things that will keep alive the growing metropolitan centres of the 21st century: the efficient use of energy, sustainable building, environmentally-compatible mobility, recycling, the networked control of systems, clean water, and the use of new materials. The most important facts are summed up here.
