Rampische Strasse 33 will totally be an authentical reconstruction, don't worry.

(Btw, the developer - USD Immobilien - calls the project "Palais am Neumarkt II")

There were plans for reconstructing the row at the street as early as 1956:

For political and financial reasons, this wasn't carried out by the commies.
Instead, they've torn down the remaining ruins of the buildings in '56.

The whole visualization somehow looks stretched out, so I guess it'll appear more like the original.


I'll ask the developer about this roof issue.

Yeah, it's living units. And a café/restaurant/shop in the ground floor, obviously.

The roof is probably stretched to give them more GFA...

Reconstruction of Dresden's old city is really prodigious, but my question is from where have Germany funds for this expensive renewal of Dresden ( and other ex-NDR cities) in these hard times and economic mess in whole Europe?

The German economy is doing comparatively well. All the money that used to be lent to the periphery is now going to Germany.

That area that is just vacant land, I take it that will one day be reconstructed right? That last photo is pretty damn impressive as to what they have done so far, rebuilding an entire city, incredible! And here we are in America still ripping up our old buildings and tearing them down. Europe is so far ahead of America, makes me so jealous.

It's a computer distortion. This image is from about the same angle:

Yes, that is Quartier VII (I) and (II) just north of Kulturplalast (see map below). It will eventually be reconstructed, I would guess relatively soon (next year) as its blocked off and undergoing some preliminary preparation.



We North Americans do not value our history or heritage the same way Europeans do. I presume because we have such a short history and in many cases our buildings/cities were thrown up haphazardly in an era of concrete and steel. There are movements in Canada to preserve heritage buildings, and there are instances in Europe of tearing down heritage buildings so the gap in mindset regarding preservation isnt as far as this thread would indicate.

I think Dresden is a special case considering the circumstances that lead to its destruction. Neumarkt is an open wound that is healing through this process.

If only you could leave the "Nasty non-Germans wasting all our money" nationalism in the DLM and let the great photos of Dresden speak for themselves because the pictures are great.

Dresden is making great progress and from all what I've seen they really are decently successful in rebuilding a real city centre, not just some empty facades. But then, I've still never been there myself. Maybe I'll wait until the Neumarkt ist finished

Could you perhaps point out where exactly you see a nationalist sentiment in my post? I was just stating a matter of fact...investors are now looking for safe havens like Germany. You really do have a problem with reading comprehension apparently cause this isn't the first time you have read things into my posts.

You're right Kampflamm. And this is especially right for the real estate sector.

Investments in private property have almost quadrupled in many parts of (esp.) East Germany, in particular in my home region of Mecklenburg, in Berlin and in Dresden.

It appears that the the artists in all three instances rendered the roof area quite poorly.

Wrong number of windows, ridiculously stretched out, or bent at some weird left leaning angle instead of being symmetrical

Why so much difficulty drawing pictures of this building?

Let us hope that whoever draws the blueprints has good eyes

According to what I've read it's not just the visualization, they really want to build it with these fugly proportions (more space = more profit)! Which means they will not only destroy one of the best Baroque buildings of Dresden, but also one of Dresdens most famous views.
