A setback for the major political parties that govern the city , which had plans to convert the area into residential and commercial areas .
The apartments available in the city are becoming less and demand more and more . It is expected that by 2025 the population will grow to 250,000 units in Berlin , which results in the need for 14,000 new homes each year.
