Ok, but unemployment rate drop during several last years isn't caused by public sector job offers, is it? Maybe it's true that Berlin can be that mythical "Start-up mecca"? On the other hand, a lot of new jobs seems to be unstable and only temporary ones...

That's the thing, the statistics aren't very specific. Many "jobs" are low-paid or just internships. The startup sector has yet to proof that it can create substantial growth. As long as living costs are still low, people can get along with few money though.

Berlin's top 200 major employers

The research/science, hightech and engineering sector is rather strong in Berlin. I'm myself employing people in this sector in Berlin.

While there are various semi-public/public institutions among Berlin's top employers like in many other metropolises (traffic network, hospitals, mailing), there's also major private players, such as Siemens, Mercedes, Vattenfall, Telekom, Gegenbauer, Bayer, Deutsche Bank, Axel Springer, Zaland-o (still considered a startup), ebay, Groupon, Bombardier, Lufthansa, VW and Allianz. The creative and hightech industries and various startups gain more influence on the job market as we speak and already create loads of real jobs. The internet industry alone grew by 30% compared to 2012.

You can check the biggest employers here: Berlin’s top 200 major employers

Ok, so you guys are basically saying that compared to Ruhr (heavy industry), Frankfurt (financial services) or Hamburg (logistics) Berlin isn't any kind of major player on the German market?

How about medicine and high-tech (still fledgling) sectors?
Germany should be very happy that country is so federalised.
Berlin can be very upset from the same reason.
But in a perspective of, let's say, 20-30 years Berlin should fully take the role of the central city which leads whole country (what doesn't mean that overwhelms it as London or Paris do).

According to La Vie visualisations, a lot of renders presenting Berlin real estate projects shows green roofs - can we assume that these buildings will have terraces there?

The small buildings in traditional style looks cool. It´s important, that a city build in various styles, not in mono. Berlin is cool.

Berlin will never play a role as dominating city in Germany. It doesn't have the major companies and the major industries in its walls. Decission makers sit somewhere else. Of course not anymore in the Ruhr area but in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Munich. Those areas are the power house of Germany today and will be its power house also in future.

But Berlin is an interesting city which attracts young professionals. That's why Berlin has been the capital of the poor for the longest time. And that's why it will get important divisions of southern German companies.

In Medias and creative Industry Berlin is at least overall on eyeline with Duesseldorf and Hamburg, while both others still create a shitload of more money per employee and the earnings are a lot of higher there in this sector.

Berlin might catch up to other German cities one day but it will never dominate.

No city in Germany will ever dominate the whole country.
That's the beauty of Federal Republic.

Construction site behind Humboldt Box is of course Humboldt-Forum but could you say more about cranes in the second plan?

Germany never had a dominant city so I can't see what's the problem about Berlin not having that role. It's not as if Frankfurt, Hamburg or Munich are the central city.

It had already been a bit controversial the shift of German capital from Bonn to Berlin in 1990. Many (formerly West German) politicians believe Bonn shouldn't be abandoned just like that and didn't believe Berlin had conditions to be the capital already at the time, and wanted a "staged" transfer that would only be completed 10 years later.

Not really true. In the Twenties Berlin had more than 4 million inhabitants (the fourth largest city in the world). In addition to being the political and social heart of Germany, most of the banks (that are now in Frankfurt), most of the publishers (that are now in Hamburg) and most of the large companies (that are now scattered around Germany) were headquartered in Berlin. Berlin was by far the most important, metropolitan city in Germany and on par with London, New York and Paris.

Germans, especially those who live in other regions than Berlin don't seem to have much enthusiasm for their capital city. This phenomena is also evident here on this blog. Foreigners/ expats are usually more optimistic and appreciative about the way the city is evolving and growing. Community planners tend to look at unimployment, low birthrates and the lack of traditional industry when making assessments about the future. Factors such as globalization, urbanization, the draw of vibrant world cities and new technologies seem to be udervalued.
