Indeed.
The old design would have been a highlight for that area and Berlin ... a real eyecatcher.
But the new design isn't that bad. I like it anyway.

A new slightly different visualisation was published on the Eike Becker webside.
The building itself didn't change at all, there is just a change in the colourway.

Proposed start of the construction is next years autumn.

A new high resolution rendering.
There are not much differents to be seen, but some interesting details in the facade.

a decent building, but with the twist it would have been special.

This building is quite beautiful. It could have been really awesome with the twist line the ones in Malmo, Moscow, and Dubai!

I don't really like the design, there are so many similar buildings around the world.

I agree! And I don't like this 'leaning tower wannabe' look.

There are a lot of similar buildings around the world ... But not in Berlin.
It is going to be a solid highrise ... Not bad at all, even without the twist.

I was in Berlin but I can't remember where is this Postbahnhof. Anyway I don't like the idea of placing this building there.

It's the DDR at work again with a slight adjustment to the window treatment. Another opportunity lost.

That said, thankfully the twisted design got voted down, or it would have been DDR at work on hallucinogenics.

The entrance does not match at all. Wish they kept the original design!
