"wer billig baut, baut teuer" -thats what happened. ("if you want to build inexpensively, you are gonna build expensively").

in the beginning, the building was said to cost 1 billion anyway, but then the ecb decided to try it cheaper. now heres the result.

Yes I had that also in mind. And its probably right. Still mind blowing how far you can get with that amount of money in different regions of the world. Wonder how much the floor area of the buildings differ.

The article zwaborn send (thank you for that) says that the first price was said 7 years ago and prices rises in that period. And due to static reinforcement of the market hall. Didn't know about that.

That's unfortunately true. The Elbphilharmony is the prominent but not the only example.

The costs are not exploding. They generally start with a completely unrealistic low price tag to get through the political circus. What we see is convergence of fantasy and reality.

In Italy too, we call it corruption. But maybe it's not this case!

This building looks good from some angles; hideous from others.

why is this listed as 220m? I thought it's 185m + Antenna. Or is it a spire now?
