This is a capital Eszett.  Which just happens not to exist in German.
Germans do not use this character, it is not available on German
keyboards, and the German spelling rules have you replace ß with SS.
And, surprise surprise, STRASSE is the example the Council for German
Orthography used ([0] page 29, §25 E3).
