Tauentzien Street renovation

Doing this again in case people don't read the German forum:

CITY WEST
Tauentzien wird zur Flanierpromenade ausgebaut
Mittwoch, 10. Februar 2010 19:07 - Von Brigitte Schmiemann

Berlins Einkaufsmeile Nummer eins, die Tauentzienstraße, wird vom angestaubten Flair der 80er-Jahre befreit. Eine veränderte Verkehrsführung und ein neu gestalteter Mittelstreifen sollen künftig Fußgänger zum Bummeln einladen. Die Kosten: rund 610.000 Euro. Einen Teil davon muss die BVG zahlen.

Der neue Tauentzien: Vor allem der Mittelstreifen soll aufgewertet und für Fußgänger attraktiver werden

They'll change the traffic routing and redesign the park stripe in the middle of the street.

Will that cool sculpture still stay there?
Of course it'll stay, it's a sculptural icon.


That's how it looks today:

They should also exchange the lamp posts in this area with the historical ones (famous Schupmann-Kandelaber) they have at Ku'Damm:

Recently reconstructed Schinkelplatz (a square just across the Berlin Cathedral and future City Palace - it's dedicated to the great German classicist/historicist architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel):

Yeah i keep asking myself the same question, i last visited the city in february, and i could see construction sites pretty much everywhere i went.


But i guess most of those sites are low profile projects that arent really worth updating about like smaller residential buildings and such. Or maybe a duplicate thread about Berlin exists? that would explain why there is so little activity in this thread though i haven't been able to find one myself ( the search function in here is really crappy).

would still appreciate construction updates from people who actually live in the city instead of just discussing project plans. I've seen a lot of projects throught the thread that really haven't been followed up on...

You guys are right: there is a lot of contruction going on in Berlin, but somehow our forumers from Berlin don't update as much as forumers from other cities/countries do. Even in the Berlin thread (in German) there is only few update activity. Unfortunately.

Too bad I'm living in the Netherlands at the moment, but as soon as I'm in Berlin again for a longer period, I'll do some updates.

You are right, theres actually a lot going on. Quite a few high profile projects too, like the new Berlin Brandenburg International Airport or the huuuge German Federal Intelligence Service headquarter, Museumisland, Zoofenster, Hackesche Quarter and soon Humboldtforum/City Palace, expansion of the Government Quarter, completion of Leipziger Platz and numerous smaller projects.
But Germans somehow don't tend to be that interested in their capital, or better said, don't seem to be interested to promote their capital.
Theres are some threads in the German section though:

To answer your question and others...

There already is a very competent german forum for architecture, so people are less inclined to post here in SSC. you are right, there are and have been hundreds of 'low profile' projects, many gaps in the inner city district have finally been closed in the last two decades.

^ Damn those spammers.



Considering Berlin: There really is something going on in the German capital now.
We'll introduce some great projects on the next page of this thread.

Berlin: Vivico launches work on Total headquarters

Today, Vivico Real Estate will begin excavation work for construction of the first office high-rise in the Europacity project opposite the main train station. The 69 m tall “Tour Total,” with around 18,000 sqm of gross above-ground floor space, is to serve as the German headquarters for the French petroleum concern, Total. The contract for the structure's shell is to be awarded in October; completion of the sustainable design is scheduled for the third quarter of 2012. A silver certificate from the German Sustainable Building Council is being targeted. According to previous announcements, the investment volume amounts to approximately €70mn. During the coming 15 years, six urban quarters with a total usable area of some 600,000 sqm are to be developed on the around 40 hectare Europacity area located between Invalidenstrasse and Perleberger Strasse. One third of the space is projected for up to 1,800 apartments.

Booming Berlin, ja!

Great news for the Alexanderplatz area (see German thread)!

New projects planned at Alex (red), map:

Fresh renderings of planned highrises, fitting the traditional early modern style of Alexanderplatz buildings:

Another traditional modernist highrise just around the corner (at Stralauer Strasse), construction starts soon, ought to be finished by the end of 2012 (see German thread):

It's a hotel with 170 rooms and 13'000 sqm of shops.
