The base is already there (the "mitte" Saturn building).
Besides, a sandstone cladding clearly suits Alexanderplatz the best.

I expected a tad of better proportions. Though it's already sort of Art-Decoesque, it could have been a little more consequent with its convex lines and the facade streams. A crown would help to make it look more slender.

Another render of the Hines Tower at Alex by Frank Gehry:

Its footprint is designed to resemble a cloverleaf. Good luck.

Erbse, you sould take a closer look. The tower clearely has its own base anexed to the Saturn building. And it looks just odd the way it is shown here. I wouldn't say anything if it would just sit on top of Saturn, but it doesnt. Sandstone is well suited to alexanderplatz, that right, but we already have only this material or close colors on Alex. Something different would please the eye very well and it woold make a great oponent to the kolhoff tower on skyline view. Plus, red brick would give the building an impressionist apperiance that would look like somthing that has german heritage and is not just copy pasted out of another metropolis! Some more relating to our history is exactely what we need in the center of our capital and nothing else!

HIGHRISE DEVELOPMENTS: FUTURE CITY EAST - FUTURE CITY WEST

FUTURE CITY EAST (ALEXANDERPLATZ):

Picture by "Noisrevid", first posted at:
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...#post110948301

FUTURE CITY WEST (ZOO):

Source: http://berlin-city-west.de/upper-west
Adaptions to original Photo by me.

Here, we see City east (left and in the background) and City west (right and more in front) within one perspective.
Not all proposed or likely highrise Projects are included, but "Upper west" (under construction)
and the Hines Tower (construction start this year) have been inserted.
Between east and west, you see the two dominant highrises of the Potzdamer platz, from which the topmost Picture must have been taken.
