Scheusslicher Betonklotz. ich hoffe die Fassade wird ein wenig aufgewertet (Glas?), ansonsten steht dort Nahe dem Bahnhof ein nicht gerade attraktiver Bau.

Noch ist das Kröpcke-Center ein scheußlicher Betonklotz, da hast du Recht. Aber es wird, wie du den Visualisierungen entnehmen kannst, eine Fassade aus hellem Sandstein und Glas bekommen, was auf einen durchaus attraktiven, wenn auch monströsen Bau in Hannovers Mitte hoffen lässt.

The new building looks great and is a vast improvement on the butt ugly old building!!!!!! Sadly here in the UK they built lots of crap like the old building in the 60s/70s. Luckily we are doing the same and replacing them with modern buildings.

Jesus, this old building is so ugly I can´t even find words to express my disgust!!!

On the other hand the new building looks just gorgeous! Hopefully the final outcome will be as good as on the renderings.

A crane has been built up a week ago, a second and even taller one will be set up at the end of this month.

Love this one. I am also glad they didn't tear the highrise down to replace is with a smaller low rise building. The renovation will be perfect.

The new design is very American, reminds me a bit of New York's Times Square, and a bit of the lower portion of Chicago's Trump Tower.
