Hopefully this is going to be some sort of transparent.
Very difficult to say what it's going to be ... looks like some camouflage cloth hanging in front of the building

Yes!! I am literally celebrating over here that the ugly, cheap monstrocity is finally falling. I hope the other ones will follow suit!

Also, glad for the classy Patzschke rising there instead.

There is a sea of these cheap, fugly commies that are completely identical, so I think it will take some time to take them down, but I'm optimistic as they're located right next to the city's most important parts, I guess they'll be the first to go down (together with those around Alexanderplatz) once Berlin rebuilds the remaining empty plots it has.

Anyway, how hard was to buy and demolish this building? Who owned it?

OMA back at it again with the Axel Springer Campus. Their first submission showed a building with white cladding on the outside. Now with the new renders it already turned grey. Knowing OMA we shouldn't even look surprised if the cladding is going to turn out black in the end.

Compare the following render with the new one on the previous page...

Yes, it looks even better than the renders. Night pics will surely be stunning.

Why Berlin is Europe's property investment hotspot

Berlin’s burgeoning tech sector is spurring a new swathe residential development in the city, as international investors realise the income potential inherent in the local market.

Recently rated as the top investment destination for global venture capitalists, Berlin is increasingly popular with technology, media and telecoms (TMT) start up firms, attracted by low commercial rent prices and a conducive business environment.

Indeed a recent report by PWC and the Urban Land Institute declared that the German capital offers the most attractive investment and development opportunities in Europe.

Several areas of the city are undergoing large-scale regeneration projects, aimed at courting both domestic and international companies. For example, Media Spree will be an entire new urban city quarter for with an estimated 40,000 new jobs (predominantly in the tech sector) and 8,500 residents.

Areas such as Mitte, Kreuzberg, or Friedrichshain, traditionally considered rough and edgy, are quickly becoming chic, thanks to this influx of affluent workers who want to live in central locations.

Ziegert has been responsible for marketing 900 apartments in these areas and demand is definitely increasing.

Across Berlin, apartment prices have doubled from their modest 2008 levels of 1,500 euros per square meter up to an average of 3,000 euros today. Until recently, Berlin hadn’t been considered particularly appealing for real estate investments.

Population growth was sluggish as was the economy – as Berlin’s former mayor Klaus Wowereit frequently used to say, the city was was “poor but sexy”.

Whilst still sexy, Berlin is no longer considered to be poor, with economic growth in the capital outpacing the German national average over the last decade.

Even during the global financial crisis, Berlin’s economy managed to grow by around 1% per annum, as the city’s population increased with new residents attracted by improving living standards, good infrastructure and a dynamic cultural and social scene.

Berlin is the largest major city with the lowest property prices in Germany. This is in stark contrast to other major German cities such as Munich, where buyers are unlikely to find a property for less than €5,000 per sqm in the Bavarian city. In Berlin, properties with this price are still considered luxurious.

Germany: Berlin’s war on gentrification



Last summer, the residents of Wrangelstrasse 66, an apartment block in the trendy Berlin district of Kreuzberg, received an alarming letter from the owner. The whole house was to be sold to a Luxembourg-registered company called Riva Residential. The tenants had two choices: either buy their flats themselves or face an expensive renovation and higher rents.

In desperation, they appealed to their local council for help — and got lucky. Councillors discovered an obscure legal tool known as a “pre-emptive right of purchase” that allows them to swoop in and stop buildings from being flogged off to private investors.

They bought the house for €3.7m and sold it on to a state-owned housing company. Wrangelstrasse 66 is now in public ownership and its tenants can stay.

“We have to do something to save public housing stock and ensure that the social structure of these neighbourhoods isn’t completely destroyed,” says Hans Panhoff, the Kreuzberg councillor who spearheaded the deal.

What happened on Wrangelstrasse is not an isolated incident. It is part of a broad campaign by the Berlin authorities to tame the wildest excesses of the real estate market and protect the rights of tenants, who make up a staggering 85 per cent of the population — compared with only 35 per cent in Britain.

The aim is to prevent Germany’s capital ending up with the same kind of housing crisis as London. “We want Berlin to remain a place where average earners can afford to live,” says Matthias Kollatz-Ahnen, the city’s finance chief. “And rumour has it that that’s no longer the case in London.”

...

Everyone loves Berlin

Just like in London, Berlin is a landlord’s market. But it wasn’t always like that. Split in two by its eponymous wall, it used to be a rundown, shabby city that was a haven for squatters, artists and bohemians.

Finding a cheap flat to rent was never a problem. At one point last decade there was such a large surplus of public housing that the city actually sold off 80,000 council flats.

The situation has changed radically in the past five years, however. Berlin, which welcomed 12m visitors in 2015 alone, is now the capital of a country at the peak of its power and influence.

Some 40,000 people are moving here every year, attracted by its thriving tech start-up scene, creative buzz and relatively low cost of living. They are in addition to the 54,000 refugees who poured into the city last year.

Experts say Berlin must build an additional 25,000 homes every year to keep up with the growth in its population. But last year, only 8,000 were constructed, city officials say.

This will definitely be one of the better cube-shaped buildings out there, if the glass facade is done well.

I just hope they'll have public facilities like a cafe/restaurant and some shop/s at the ground, and maybe a rooftop bar and terrace on top, that'd be cool at this location.

I think it looks grey and dull. :/ Ironic that it is called "Grandaire". There's literally nothing grand about it.
