BERLIN | Alexander Tower | 150m | Prep

The Alexa office tower is planned with 150 meters next to the department store Alexa and would one of the first buildings of the so-called city crown, which provides up to 10 skyscrapers around the Alexanderplatz. The master plan of architects Kollhoff and Timmermann was approved in 1993.

City works administrator? Let's rather switch to something like Senior Construction Director, Construction Director of the Berlin Senate or Chief Building Director.

Anyway, looks like Kollhoff's Berlinhattan vision finally becomes real. Good luck, Berlin!

I'm still rooting for the classy initial design by Ortner & Ortner Architects shown above, would be great at that location.

MIXED NUTS

Here is an alternative design for the plot.

Source: http://www.deutsches-architektur-for...t=4497&page=17 Posted by: AeG

This is how the Tower (left) will Play with the Hines-Tower (middle) and the Park Inn (right)

Source: http://www.deutsches-architektur-for...t=4497&page=17 Posted by: Desktopstarrer

A Vision of a much bolder development at Alex. Park Inn is the small boxy structure which reflects the sun strongly left of the TV-Tower.

Nice! Berlin is a great city but now it feels like something is missing without a proper skyline.

I hope Berlin never has a fragmented Skyline as the one shown above. The city needs to focus development around existing cores such as Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz to keep the skyline organized.

You are right, but the trend in Berlin is unfortunately in the other direction.
Thus, the high-rise buildings are scattered throughout the city.

The two highest skyscrapers planned,
Estrel and the Hochhaus am Tiergarten are both outside the centers Alexanderplatz and Potsdamer Platz.

"Hochhaus am Tiergarten" isn't planned. It was just a proposition by architecture students. The Technical University also claims this so far pretty much unused plot of land for their own expansion plans. Their main library was the start in 2004.

In reality, the current development is much MORE scattered than on that Picture. That was more like an "Extended Alexanderplatz"

I once wished to see the Potzdamer PLatz develop further as centerpiece of a new Berlin Skyline, but quite realistically, that Train has left the platform. I can´t see which plots in a reasonable vicinty of the Potzdamer PLatz are now available, everything around having been build as small-towers or in "Traufhöhe".

Concerning Alex, I personally don´t see Alex as fit in the role as the ONE dominant contemporary center of Berlin. It lies a Little to far east, to Close to the Museumsinsel and ist historical monuments and is far too difficult to developed as a new vision (bar the possibility of making flat everything which was erected during the DDR-reign, which is unrealistic and maybe undesirable).

My opinion is that a scattered Skyline could suit Berlin well. The scatteredness makes more visible the city´s geographical size, thus adding to its metropolitan character. Berlin once competed with London and Paris (then 4 Million inhabitants), but now lag behind both of their current +10 mill with a mere 3,5 mill. This, as commonly known, is one main reason Berlin has not developed a Skyline, since there was no pressure upwards due to lack of space. The political Situation of the cold war era was another reason.

What appears to be developing in Berlin is a development of multiple, but more minor Centers (Potzdamer PLatz, Alex and Zoo) in Addition to scattred, single Towers. I personally find that trend to be both "organic" and appealing. A little bit like in LA, but to a lesser extent, it gives a sense of scope, expansiveness and relaxed sophistication.

I always liked the first design, it fits both Berlin as a whole and in particular the neighbourhood of Alexanderplatz. And the sphere on top is corresponding well with the one on the TV-tower , I hope they will stay with this concept more or less.

Monarch Group wants to build the next Tower

September they want to make a building application to the city goverment, next year they gonna start if if everything goes well.

The draft / architect isnt sure for now, some sources say, MonArch only wants some little changes at the old Ortner + Ortner draft and other sources say, that MonArch wants to start a ne competition.

presenting plans in Cannes at MIPIM

"We will present the project in March at the real estate fair in Cannes ," announced Ulrich Regener , MonArch branch manager in Germany , in relation to "ND" . Apparently , the company is looking for other investors and users for the project. According Regener large-scale retail is possible in the 35 meter high pedestal region of the skyscraper , about a residential, hotel or office use. Was decided upon yet , nor on the draft , to be ultimately realized. In Baukollegium , a private advisory panel , which meets Senatsbaudirektorin , several variants of the tower were presented.

I hope they realise the Ortner + Ortner draft shown here before...

But there are also other drafts and with different cubature like the Gehry-Tower planed by Hines...
