Well, at least a certain commitment to urban development is not an issue in Cologne anymore, it seems.
As for new classical architecture, I think we are not yet there. But since the eternal rival Düsseldorf is speeding up it's building activity in that style, that's probably just a matter of time.

Deutzer Hafen
Innenstadt / Deutz

This project took the next step a few days ago as the developer has bought the land. Since the industrial habour is still in use, the remaining companies got a deadline until the end of 2020 to resettle their businesses. The developer then wants to immediately start building the new quarter.

  • architects: Cobe Architects (Copenhagen/Berlin)
  • developer: moderne stadt (Cologne)
  • residential properties for 4,500 people (30% social housing)
  • 5,000 workplaces

Here are the renders - including some that have not yet been shown here - of what the area is meant to look like after completion:



A nice gimmick is the free-to-use infinity pool flowing into the port basin.

MiQua
Innenstadt / Altstadt-Nord

MiQua is the name of a museum project which was formerly known as Jewish Museum and Archaeological Zone. The new name is a compound (Mitten im Quartier) and is meant to remind of "mikvah".
The project will make accessible the results of many years of excavations in front of the town hall. The 10.000 m² large area contains remnants of the medieval Jewish quarter and from Roman times such as the praetorium of CCAA.
The visitors will be able to enter the excavation area through a new museum building which will include archaeological finds. After that, they can proceed to a 600m underground tour through the up to 2000 years old foundation walls.

The museum building is designed by Wandel Lorch Architekten and is currently under construction. It's facade will partly be made of spolia from various finds in Cologne.

Bundeskanzlerplatz
Bonn

This project is actually in Bonn but I'll put that in here since we don't have a thread about Bonn. Bonn is more or less a suburb of Cologne anyway.

The location is next to the World Conference Center where the meeting of the G20 foreign ministers took place earlier this week.

  • architects: JSWD Architekten (Cologne)
  • height: 100m
  • floor space: 60.600 m²
  • utilisation: offices
  • completion: 2020

I hope they build that tower. They took a plain white gridded box and made it a masterpiece! With the quality of German facade materials, it should look quite great in Bonn.

I/D Cologne
Mülheim

Transformation of a former freight depot into a business district on an area of 7 ha. The new quarter will offer around 7,000 new work places on 160,000 m² floor space.
The individual architecture is yet to be defined. The investor wants the new buildings to resemble the facades of the old industrial architecture in that area (see).

Overview concept:




The so called "Incubator Service House" in the centre of the new quarter:

It definitely is!
Another nice project on this side of the Rhine is the MesseCity which just found two long-term tenants for a new hotel building.
There will be more than 300 rooms for Motel One and some 170 appartments for Adina Apartment Hotels next to the trade fair south entrance.
Start of construction is next year and completion is scheduled for 2020.


Image: SRE/ECE/gmp/HH-Vision

The high-rise seen on the left is still a placeholder in the render for the planned LVR-Turm shown in post #226.
The high-rise on the right is part of the new Zurich-HQ and will look like this:

Image: SRE/ECE

Construction is about to start here. Currently, you can see the first crane rising on this plot:


In addition to that, across from the hotel building there will be another high-rise (not visible in the above rendering), which will look like this:

The investor has uploaded new renders to the project page.

Grüngürtel

This section is expanding the park at its southern end towards the Rhine. This plot has formerly been used for office buildings which have already been torn down.

This draft has won the first price in a competition. Architects are Förder Landschaftsarchitekten.
