The Berlin Model (built, u/c and future)

The Berlin Model in Berlin


The following are pictures taken from the Berlin Town Hall Model Room (way back in Easter this year - been so busy that I aint been able to find time to post all these pictures and lots more). White models indicate buildings already built, the wood-colour blocks indicate buildings either built, u/c or future proposals after 1990-2000. The main future proposals being around Alexanderplatz (where all those towers are)...currently only masking blocks, but general dimensions for the very long term (Berlin has a very high vacancy rate for the moment and near future).

Beautiful scale model. Maybe it is not a strange thought to lower the office towers or to design them as residential. And to difference them in height.

Berlin is a great city, I am really impressed by the developments the last decade!

Thanks for the pictures.

yes, thanks a lot for the pictures. There are really a lot of projects. Hope everything will be built in near future, especially the skyscrapers!

looks great, but a small question:

how tall will the tallest towers be?

The tallest towers will be at Alexanderplatz with 150 m.
The other skyscrapers are 100-150 m. It´s very sad, we need +200

Right, but the constructions at the Alexander Platz just have started. The construction of the first tower should start in 2008-2009.

That's quite the scale model, though the trees are a bit big compared to the photos.
