Parts of it will be open to the public, containing the foundations of the original palace, even some rooms with intact historic wall and floor tiling. The parts not open to the public will be used as archives, storage and for the building technology.

This area likely won't turn into such a pedestrian zone. Though traffic will be more limited and it'll be more pedestrian-friendly to connect the existing museums and the City Palace with its outer-European collections.

What is the tall building that kills a view for Marienkirche from that point (making its background)? Was it built in GDR time or later?

I just like the Berlin city palace animated architecture. It'll be a huge building after the construction work has been finishes.

Yes, it's a GDR monstrosity. It was built as the Hotel Stadt Berlin, part of East Germany's Interhotel chain in the late 60s. It was reclad in the early 2000s, but it still looks terrible.

Will any of the interiors be reconstructed?

I realize money is the issue here, but I hope that even if they don't reconstruct some interiors that at least the room proportions are built in a manner that a full reconstruction is possible at a later date.

It is a normal highrise building with a glass facade. I wouldn't call it a monstrosity.

I definitely would, along with the rest of Alexanderplatz and the surrounding area.

With regards to the Park Inn building specifically, the podium is horrible. I'd love to see it completely demolished.

It may be not a monstrosity itself but the way it, well, interacts with Marienkirche is horrible. There would be no problem if it's built somewhere else.

When I first saw Alexanderplatz I felt myself at home (in a bad way). It's an absolutely Soviet area reminding not even the centre of Moscow but its outskirts.

The two buildings left and right in front of the Fernsehturm for instance, Berolinahaus and Alexanderhaus (early 30s).

Interesting. They look like 1950s GDR buildings.

The rest of the square, the most offensive parts, are post-WWII, though.

I personally find them horrible. Very cold and imposing (and not in a good way). I don't usually say this, but I wish they had been completely destroyed during the war, even if they had been replaced with typical GDR shit that we see on the rest of the plaza. At least then there'd be a chance of having them torn down for something more pleasant.
