176 m would be pretty epic in Berlin. Slowly but surely Berlin is getting somewhere in terms of skyscrapers.

Berlin seems to be an up and coming city, I know it is a centre for popular modern culture, music, art etc, and now it's become europe's second biggest technology start up centre after London, all these factors combined will surely increase demand for high rise office and residential towers, good times for Berlin, try and break the Anglo and American monopoly on popular modern culture

Wonderful news. Estrel together with the Hines Tower are already two skyscrapers in active planning. 2015 is a wonderful year for Berlin if nothing goes wrong.

Langsam, langsam, aber sicher, that's what my dad always told me.

........and here, apparently, we may very soon look forward to the second unravelling of a highrise architectural competition for Berlin within only a few weeks. Exciting

As far as I understand, the new, tallest building of Berlin will rise directly behind the existing building mass as shown on this Picture:

Invited Competition Estrel Tower Berlin - 1st Prize

Complimenting the existing Estrel Hotel, the largest in Germany, a new hotel tower and conference center will establish a new gateway to the center of Berlin from the soon to be completed Schönefeld International Airport. The tower at 175 meters (578 feet) will be the tallest high-rise in Berlin to date. Located on the Sonnenalle at the intersection of the Ship Canal, S-Bahn and Autobahn the site is a threshold between the heterogeneous industrial/ residential periphery and the historical neighborhoods of Neukölln. Free from the historical constraints of the center the project is an ensemble of elements revolving around the sloped silhouette of the tower with its roof terrace orienting to the city.

In response to the existing Estrel Hotel and resembling the children’s game “Tangram” the proposal is organized into a series of extruded triangulated volumes of different sizes and heights mediating the tower into the low-rise surrounding neighborhoods. This cascading family of forms, from high to low-scaled, radiates to form two strong orientations: to the street side (Sonnenallee) and to the water side (Ship Canal). Functions are distributed into the different sized volumes including the hotel, an office building, park house, glass-roofed hotel entrance atrium, and the low-flat conference center. This programmatic clarity allows easy phasing variations, which is important for such a large scale development. A ground floor promenade begins with the hotel drop-off which continues into the hotel atrium and on to an arcade fronting the conference center.

Facades compliment the idea of “similar but distinct” building volumes and are articulated to enhance the verticality of the individual parts of the ensemble in metal and glass.
