33 Rampische Strasse & Palais Hoym

Any news of these two buildings? When, or has construction begun?

Btw, what about reconstructing the Rehfeldhaus? It would be a magnificent venue for smaller events or would serve as a really cozy café or something. In addition, it would add a nice lowrise-layer to the Altmarkt / old market square, the complexity it somehow seems to lack currently. It would also add nicely to the Stalinist ensemble. Is there anything that'd block such ambitions?

The structure you mention was built in 1913, replacing a baroque structure in the center this photo:

It is highly unlikely that it will be rebuilt, since there is a brand-new building where it once stood.

I hope that building is going to be demolished in 20 years.......... Why only reconstructing the Neumarkt if also another square needs a few reconstructions too? I hope the Stalinist buildings are going to be demolished within 20/30 years and on the place of them fine reconstructions of the Altmarkt.

The Altmarkt has already been reconstructed with modern buildings, alongside the Stalinist buildings. Here is a view from the Frauenkirche. The red-roofed building on the far right stands where the Löwen-Apotheke was.

Considering that the buildings in the left-center of the image I posted were just completed, it will probably never happen. I wonder how long the Stalin-era buildings will last.
Does anyone know what their condition is these days? I haven't been inside one since 1993.

Those "Stalin-era" buildings are actually a blessing in the midst of all the other ugly commibocks AND the modern additions that form Dresden's core.
I think they are quite beautiful and they weren't built in some "Stalin-Style" but they're closely based on Dresden Baroque.

Yes, i also wanted to say that! Its not bad at all! Sure, it always may be better, but if we have in mind what Dresden survived during WWII...

So, its ok!

Stalin-era Altmarkt Buidlings

They sure look better than the modernist insertions in the Neumarkt reconstruction!

I think they shouldn't build the new hotel next to the Kreuzkirche, which I think it looks a bit like an Lego-building. Instead of that they should've build some reconstructions which gaved a bit of it's former glory back. Then the Stalinist buildings could stand to remember the post-war rebuilding of Dresden.
Now they've just put some blocky building which has some things which reminds of old Dresden. I just don't like it and never will and hope it's going to be other reconstructions soon. The Altmarkt deserves better then that.


PS: Are they also going to reconstruct the Neustadter Markt and Hauptstraße? Maybe we should start an thread for that

the newly completed buildings at the southern edge of the altmarkt are indeed a poor reflection of classic Dresden architecture. The good news, however, is that since these buildings have almost NO exterior ornamentation or facade relief, new owners in years to come can simply change the facades quite easily to create a much better look. The same idea has been discussed regarding the KulturPalast.
