Museum Island won't be finshed until 2025. But again, this is the schedule right now, maybe add one or two or maybe three years to that. But at least the State Opera should be open by 2020. But again...you never know with Berlin.

It's rather sad actually. I will be about 40 when I can for the first time in my life experience my captital city in a relatively complete state.
Thanks.

Speaking of how things take long, I actually have an airplane ticket from 6 years ago in 2010 that was printed with Berlin Brandenburg International Airport as my destination. It was changed back to Tegel after the fact. Here we are now in 2016 and the airport is still not open. lol

This is a great thread. I'm really interested to see new hotel projects in Berlin. Does anyone have any insight into the projects that are out there?

I just come back from an extended week-end in Berlin.

Well now I kinda want to move and find a job there... (and I'm not joking, although, I'd probably need to see what it's like in winter).

The city is fascinating and sure has a long way to go but overall I had an amazing experience. Cool people, nice restaurants and interesting mix of architecture. (Only problem is I couldn't get into Berghain).
I really enjoyed the S-bahn. It's a wonderful piece of infrastructure, the stations are works of art and I love how they managed to integrate so many shops inside and outside so that they're totally part of the city and don't function as barriers like railroads usually do in most cities, it's brilliant.
I also love how they are rebuilding some lost monuments. It's totally different from the French approach and I wish we could rebuild some stuff that were lost as well.

Glad you liked it! Don't worry about Berghain lol. My brother and his girlfriend live there and bitch about Berghain because they get in a lot, but every once and a while are turned down. I even saw an app that was created to calculate your chances of getting into Berghain. Personally, I've been there 5 times and got in every time, but I should just stop now so I can brag I've never been turned-down. lol. I'm sure my time is coming.

Just got back from a week in Berlin. The city is amazing. The S-Bahn and U-Bahn is quite a work of art. The stations are truly a work of art. We stayed in the former East Berlin, and there are trams there. Construction everywhere.
One amazing site is the Berliner Dom, aka: Berlin Cathedral. Damaged during the war are restored in the 70's. I would love to retire there for a few years.

^ Great to hear you liked it! But why just go there to retire? Work and live there!

I like the cladding. For a Libeskind building, it's actually tolerable.

That being said, the surrounding buildings are kinda sad. I assume those are "modernized" historicist/Art Noveau buildings. Berlin should really push their residents to restore their original appearance, the city would look much, much better.

Yes, they are "entstuckte" de-stuccoed Gründerzeit style buildings.
Art Nouveau was comparatively rare in Berlin. One would also rather refer to it as "Jugendstil". That's what that style is also called in English.

It's certainly more interesting and in my opinion even more attractive than the sad de-stuccoed buildings surrounding it.

Are there any Berliners on this forum except for Ludi, noisrevid and maxxe that can update this thread regularly and with smaller housing projects? London and Paris thread are updated on a daily basis and they show all kinds of projects, small or big. Here, we only see the biggest or most interesting only. I'm not trying to be rude to anyone that actually try to bring some projects here, especially Tiaren and erbse, since they don't even live in Berlin. We've seen so many amazing projects under construction or in planning on this thread, but we don't see them being finished. Berlin is undergoing a new construction boom, but we aren't able to see it. I wish this thread would again show us all kinds of beautiful small projects happening all around Berlin, not just Upper West and the Stadtschloss, especially since those two have their own English threads.

Thank you sooo much for this amazing update. I don't think there has ever been such a large update covering so many projects. Really appreciate your effort.

Commenting on the buildings, I have to say that there are a number of quite crappy projects. I expected more of those New Classical buildings, although most of what I've seen is rather good and interesting.
