Great updates, but is another mall in Berlin necessary?

Thanks for all these updates!

I always feel I have to preface my criticisms with the fact that I LOVE Berlin and it's my favorite city so people don't think I'm trolling, but I have to agree with the comments mentioning that so many of Berlin's projects are BOXY (and white).

Not sure why this is. There are so many other shapes buildings can be. And what is wrong with a roof that is not flat?? Always flat roofs. Hmm

I'm just afraid in 50 years time will Berlin be a sea of white boxes?

Also, I thought Berlin had tapped out the shopping mall construction with Mall of Berlin, but yet they are building more. Wow.

Yeah, I really don't understand those huge shopping malls popping up all around the city. I thought they would die out after the debacle of Mall of Berlin (atleast it was debacle last time I read something about it, I don't know if the situation has improved).

Also, I think Berlin's architecture is finally starting to evolve into something else than white boxes, although there is still so much of those being built all around the city. We see all kinds of New Classical projects all around the city, and some of the modern stuff is stunnning, as well. I just hope that Berlin's architecture will completely reinvent itself when time comes for redevelopment of Alexanderplatz and Old Town area (reconstructions here would be amazing). Then we will be able to mention Berlin as an equal to London and Paris in both beauty and elegance.

A big part of the projects in the making right now are quite boxy.
It's kind of a "characteristic" of nowadays architectural style of Berlin.
Every one has to decide if he think its good or bad, i think some are ... others aren't.

The construction of this building is divided into two separate parts.
The first one topped out and the cladding takes place right now.
The second part will follow after the completion of the first part.

And I hope Alexanderplatz will preserve the massive-DDR-feeling and continue that way because it's so unique and cool area. You don't need to build history again and do some neo-classic buildings everywhere. When there is already dozens of districts like that in other cities and Berlin. It's boring. Berlin is dynamic and needs to look to future and embrace the extremely rich history of the city and all parts of it, as it will do I believe.

I would like to see something like Potsdamer Platz, where you have all those different buildings, built with different materials, some evoking historical styles and some looking contemporary and innovative. I don't especially like Kollhoff's 1993 proposal, even though I like his high-rises. I just think it would be too much Art-Decoesque without a reason.

That being said, I do believe some architecturally important buildings should be reconstructed, especially those built in 19th and 20th century. There were so many gems ahead of their time, it's unbelievable. For instance, Tietz department store in Leipziger Strasse.
