Could you imagine Frankfurt skyscrapers next to Piazza Navona in Rome?
Actually yes i can imagine this quite well. Of course not for Rome, but Frankfurt proves that it can be great. The combination of old and new in Frankfurt makes this city a speacial beauty!

But as said before, lets now stick to the topic.

Is the Hotel Stadt Leipzig in the Neustadt area under renovation and, if it is, are there any pictures?

I thought there was a lengthy update of Hotel Stadt Leipziger a few pages back on this thread but I can't find it. Here's a link to a site with pics, dated February 2015. It doesn't look like a whole lot is going on, but the pictures are great.

Hotel Stadt Leipzig

Those photos of the Hotel Stadt Leipziger make it look like a strong wind would knock it down. Whoever decides to renovate it, it's going to take a lot of work and a lot of money.

Can't wait to see Jüdenhof finished along with Rampische Strasse and Landhausstrasse. This will more or less signal the completion of the aldstadt. I would have loved these two streets to be filled only with "old" buildings and connected through some kind of arcade like this:

Churchill was a criminal for ordering the intentional destruction of German cities. It was unnecessary and driven purely by revenge. In this sense, Churchill was no better than Hitler. The war was over by February 1945. The bombing of Dresden (and other German cities in the winter and spring of 1945) were acts of hatred and revenge.

Equating the violence of Dresden (or other German cities) by the Allies with the violence of the Axis does not make one an apologist for the Axis.

Yes, it is the Kulturpalast, or more appropriately called "Walmart Dresden version". All they need to do is paste some underwear sale posters in the windows to be complete.

Why are you so critical about Kulturpalast?! It is so rich in details, its cultural value for whole Europe is gigantic and it is probably better known than Empire State Building. And the design is just awesome and sophisticated... I don't understand why would someone replace it with Baroque buildings that can be found anywhere in the world, with an ugly and boring design. Kulturpalast is the real reason why tourists visit Dresden and it's obvious that modern architecture is way more popular with tourists than some old, boring, bland and talentless architecture. That's the reason why modern cities like Rotterdam have way more tourists than, say, Paris or Rome.

Sarcasm is implied.

Good one. People always mention Berlin as an example when talking about modern architecture, BUT people go to Berlin because of the culture. And many people's favorite area is Prenzlauer Berg with its old architecture and cafes. Yes, some people think that modern architecture in Berlin is exciting. But, it's more landmarks than housing blocks.

I believe Dresden's inner core should be with buildings like this too. Hopefully Jüdenhof, Rampische Strasse and Landhausstrasse will only have these kinds of buildings.

Titan Man, I started reading your post with eyes widened in disbelief, and finished with a grin.

Yesterday, I showed my partner the pictures WhiteMagic posted. He pointed to the Kultur Palast and asked, "Why is that ugly building there?"

And what was your answer?

Well, once the Neumarkt area is finished, Dresden will receive much more tourists and they will dislike a cheap, ugly and boxy building in the middle of the old town, so maybe that will trigger its demolition.
