Even though it's part of a considerable metro area, I would say Bremen is a second-tier city. Not really on the same level as Berlin/Hamburg/Munich/Frankfurt.

Bremen is governed by statist Social Democrats for ages. It ranks last in most statistics for good (or rather bad) reasons. It underperforms heavily, given its possible strengths. There's larger investments at Überseequartier, but well. It needs to be brought back to Hanseatic glory by a liberal-conservative gov that understands you can't just live from hand to mouth. Or at least get the necessary decision makers and companies aboard.

Basically the same procedure Berlin needed to undergo in the past two decades, almost successfully (potentially halted by the upcoming super-annoying RedRedGreen coalition).

What are the chances of RRG coalition occurring?

That architectural style is very common in Southern Europe. Rome and Naples have thousands of apartment buildings like that.

It's also a common architectural expression for early German modernism like Expressionism and New Objectivity.
A bit like a combination of Berlin's UNESCO heritage of Modernism Housing Estates.

That last project turned out very nice. I love the warmness of the brick.

I wasn't talking about the federal German government actually, but yes, that'd be even more harmful for the whole country. But Berlin gets a red-red-green coalition in 2016 already, due to the elections this September.

Do you think they be bad for Berlin? You have parties like AfD that can stop them. I hope not, but if worse comes to worse, then the Greens and ex-commies would be voted out for good.

I think it depends from city to city. Hamburg's booming, yet it's governed by SPD. As a matter of fact, it's been governed by SPD for most of its post-war history. But, you probably have more insight on the matter. I can only speak for Dutch cities, where Amsterdam has been governed by Labor since 1957 and well, it's been driven by large scale investments since I can remember.

The SPD isn't that bad either, the Linke (Lefts) and Grüne (Greens) are very anti-investment though. They are basically against everything.
They are for example strictly against highrises of any kind and they honestly rather proposed a kindergarten and playgrounds on the site of an upcoming highrise on Alexanderplatz.
They also have no sense for art and culture and have a long history of opposing everything that could make the city a bit nicer and prettier. When the reconstruction of the City Palace was discussed they proposed to just leave it's site as a Bolzplatz (sports ground)...in the historic heart of Berlin. They also oppose bringing back preserved, historic monuments back to their original place, just because. They do have a great disdain for Germany's/Berlin's history pre 1945.

It's ironic how "progressive" parties can be so regressive.

Oh, I just love those idiotic parties and their supporters that think, if they build kindergartens and playgrounds, our lives would be much better. We have one of those here in Croatia, they were the fourth most popular party this election. The only strategy of those parties is just bitching about pretty much everything, without actually offering any (reasonable) solution. The leaders are usually untalented, unambitious idiots that are capable enough to pull masses of other idiots in realising their stupid ideas and plans. I think that every society should give those parties just one month to lead their country, just so we can get rid of them after everyone realises how incompetent those idiots are. I should calm down now, or I'm gonna get a heart attack.

Anyway, I hope that Berlin won't follow Bremen and similar towns, the city is finally starting to boom again after what seemed as a rather calm "2000s" after the "roaring 90s". Paris and London need a real threat, Milan is starting to pull itself together, and there's never been a better time for Berlin to step in.

Someone claimed that lot of Green Party voters are transplants from Southern Germany. Is that true?

Today, after 72 years, the reconstructed carillion of the Parochial Church was playing for the first time again:
