WBS 70 (Wohnungsbauserie 70th series) is a type of dwelling that was built in the German Democratic Republic using slab construction. It was developed in the early 1970s by the German Academy of Architecture and the Technical University of Dresden. In 1973, the first block in the city was Neubrandenburg built and this house is now a historical monument. Of the approximately 1.52 million dwellings constructed in slab construction to 1990, the Type 70 WBS is widespread, accounting for up to 42 percent of housing constructed in the East.

In Berlin-Hellersdorf, there is a museum at Heller Strasse 179 open to visitors of the apartment type WBS 70th. The 61-square-metre three-room apartment was furnished with original household items manufactured in the GDR.
