More space means more building opportunities. Many global cities face major shortages of land for new construction.

Berlin's surrounding region called Brandenburg is virtually empty (pop. density 84/km2 - 220/sq mi), so there's loads and loads of opportunities to expand the metropolis for decades, centuries.

Btw, if you're interested in development around Berlin, check the respective subforum for the Berlin Area (incl. Potsdam), it's rather new:

Virtually empty is slightly exaggerated. Most of the scandinavian countries have a population density of appr. 25/km2.

The advantage with the population decline of the former prussian heartland due to being part of the DDR is that many small towns and places are preserved much in their pre-war shape. Now, after 26 years time for restaurations, you sometimes get a glimpse back to an age of different taste.

True that @regenerated old towns. I'm rather glad most of them didn't experience the ruthless expanding modernism of the
post-war period like western cities/towns did.

Though regarding the density, it's only slightly higher in the few centers dotted in the middle of nowhere
and in the immediate Berlin agglomeration, the rest of Brandenburg is indeed pretty much a 'white canvas',
with densities similar to that of the Scandinavian countryside.

The tower topped out and the cladding finished.
The construction is now concentrating on the inside of the tower.

New Renderings


The hotel in the complex is listed separately on the website of Pysall architects. Click
There are new renderings of the facade on that page.
They are not very detailed, but they give a good impression of how the facade will probably look in the future.

Heydt Eins turned out incredibly good, just like the renders. Perfect classical New Berlin Style
Nöfer is such a talented architectural office.

It looks quite good but there are some things that could have been better.
like the western part of the building. It kind of looks like the architects forgot to design it ... it looks unfinished.

Hopefully that gray exterior walls won't be concrete, but a textured glass facade?!
