The Neukölln population used to consist, among other groups, of strong ones supporting the far right; even neo-nazi. Now, there is a very heavy turkish influx there, yet as a white, I never feeled threatened or insecure while walking there.

My personal impression is that Kreuzberg, lying between Neukölln and central Berlin is more loaded. Groups (I hesitate saying gangs) of african immigrants roam begging or trying to sell you stuff, making you feel uncomfortable and "small in your shoes" if "cought in a corner". This, even if Kreuzberg has gotten a reputation of a multiculturalism with positive connotation in the media (it´s no ghetto, white hipsters also are attracted to it).

It is sad, because pre-war Kreuzberg was one of the nicest, most stylish parts of the city.

BAM picked for two Berlin office schemes

BAM Deutschland has been appointed to build two office schemes with a combined value of over €30m (£25m) in Berlin, Germany.

The East Side Office phases 2 and 3 are part of the city’s Postbahnhof project. The new contracts follow last year’s win of phase 1, which will be completed shortly.

The project involves the construction of six to nine office floors with a total floor area of approximately 16,500m2. Underground parking is also included in the scheme.

The site is near Ostbahnhof Station and East Side Gallery – a section of the Berlin Wall with paintings by artists. The offices have unobstructed views of the Spree River.

Client for the work is NDC Real Estate Management and the offices have been designed by Thomas Müller - Ivan Reimann Architekten. BAM has commissioned the detailed design from WEP-Effingner Partner Architekten.

Both new phases are due for delivery in September 2018.

How good is Berlin's soil for construction?

I'm pretty sure Berlin has very poor soil (sand) with a very high water table. It used to be a swamp.

That is what piling machines are for. Pound the piles down until they can support enough weight. The upper portion of the soil is clay and dirt, but there is probably dense rock below it.

Berlin is, like most of North-Eastern Germany, shaped by the last glacial movements.
The region of the capital was/is dominated by rivers, lakes, swamps and muddy or sandy soil. So it's quite difficult to build towers as compared to rocky Manhattan. But I think London has somewhat similar difficult conditions. Not to think of coastal places in the desert like Dubai and Jeddah.

It hasn't stopped them in Chicago. They started with "raft foundations" that spread the weight across every inch of the site and then started using ridiculously deep foundations and piles, up to 300 feet deep. Also, for what New York City gains in close bedrock, they suffer with having to drill through the famous Schist rock with literal jackhammers mounted on excavators to dig foundations. If there is a will, there is a way.

I suppose more than being difficult, it's the cost. Having to use piles can dramatically increase the cost of a building.
