Indeed, it isn't as reflective as shown in the renderings, but it was very cloudy and grey ... lets wait for better conditions.
Also there are some details still missing, like the horizontal structure and the printed details on the facade, maybe this will improve the result a bit.

Alexander - Berlin's Capital Tower | 150m | Mitte | Pro

Update


Official Website

more infos and renderings


Rendering

The permission to build this tower wasn't rejected because of Berlins building department. Intead Monarch wanted to build higher than 150m and they insisted on building higher than allowed ... until now.
Monarch now accepted that 150m is the limit at the Alexanderplatz and the permission should be granted quite soon. As a result they added 2 new renderings to the website of the project.
So hopefully it will start soon.

It looks better in these new render views now.

I still think it'd be much better with a soaring, tapering shape and setbacks. Even with the same floor space, just don't do those freaking facade cutouts!

Im only missing one thing here ... the stone cladding.
It now looks like a low quality plaster facade, nothing like the 360° rendering on the website.

I always expected bare concrete on this one... Hopefully they'll go for beige/ocre sandstone though (or at least a prefab lookalike).

This will never rise, lol. Seeing year after year after year new renderings is nice though. I like the one breaking through the clouds as if the cloud level was 100m.

This is how the 360° rendering looks like.
There is quite a difference between this one and the recently published renderings.

A sutble but important change for the better in many 2nd tier Berlin projects posted here appears to be a preference for more massive single-panel windows, instead of those outdated framed windows reminiscent of a past when glassmaking techniques and in particular double-glazing were nowhere as advanced. 4m-wide glass panels always look nice and make interiors awesome.

^ Suburbanist living in his own dystopian world again...
Where there's only blank glass and concrete facades, commieblock-like structures, wide roads, no human scale and no cozyness whatsoever.

The cladding has to be pretty good otherwise it'll be a proper turd.

Yes, I'm surprised by this. Of all the many many ugly buildings that could've been demolished and replaced by this unimpressive and average, but at least clean and modern new building, they demolish a perfectly nice decent looking building?? What could have resulted in a net gain for the city (one ugly building gone, one nice building gained), results instead with zero gain to the cityscape, it's just a wash (one decent building gone and replaced by another average building that is not much better).
