Reichsbahndirektion

Reichsbahndirektion, the former imperial train management building at the Rhein river, is getting renovated and gets a modern roof.

It was built in 1913 and is supposed to house offices after completion. Construction started already.

Project roundup

Compilation of different projects in Cologne:

MaxCologne

Läuft alles soweit planmäßig. Probleme gibt es da noch wegen der Zufahrt an den Ausgrabungen. Das kleinere soll Anfang 2013 fertig sein, das große Mitte 2013.

Flora Sanierung

Fertigstellung April 2014 geplant. Reservierungen werden schon entgegengenommen.

Moschee Ehrenfeld

Verzögerung bis mindestens Frühjahr 2013. Gutachter lässt noch auf sich warten.

Jüdisches Museum am Rathaus

Finanzierungsprobleme wegen der Haushaltskrise. Verzögerungen zu erwarten.

Rheinboulevard

Baubeginn Frühjahr 2013. Probleme wegen der Zufahrt zum MaxCologne und dem geplanten Historischen Park.

Oper Sanierung

Starke Kostensteigerung. Ansonsten plnamäßige Durchführung. Bald Abriss der Brücken von Parkhaus zu Oper.
(Sollte abgerissen und die alte Rekonstruiert werden xD - die ganze Umgebung sieht einfach schlimm aus)

Messecity

Baubeginn frühestens Ende 2013. Fertigstellung frühestens 2020.

Dionysoshof

Abriss der Betonpilze noch in diesem Jahr. Beschleunigung des Bauvorhabens wegen Abrechnung der Bundeszuschüsse.

Neubau Stadtarchiv

Baubeginn 2014. Eröffnung für 2017 vorgesehen.

FH Köln - Ingenieurswissenschaftliches Zentrum

Wird eventuell unter Denkmalschutz gestellt - wogegen es jedoch viel Protest gibt. Ansonsten Abriss und Neubau (hoffentlich )

Breslauer Platz
image hosted on flickr

Eventuell Verlegung des Busbahnhofes an den Flughafen. Neugestaltung des Platzes hin zum Rheinufer verzögert sich wegen noch erfolgender Verlegung von Kabeln der Bahn.

Quellen der Bilder: siehe Bild-URL
Ich hoffe Köln gehts bald besser damit die Stadt endlich mal attraktiver wird

Finished for quite some time, but anyway, just to show Cologne is building highrises too (this one from 2001) - and set a role model for buildings like the NYC Gehry tower and Aqua in Chicago:

KölnTurm - 148m @ Mediapark

There's quite some more stuff going on (or was in recent years), but our Cologne users rarely post something.

Köln Turm looks somehow much higher than just ~150m.

Makes sense. Is it the same thing with Munich? Thanks for the updates btw.

I love the Kölnturm, but the communication stuf (like the antenne) on the roof is too bad, it's breaking the design.

The new design for the Reichsbahndirektion looks stunning.

Die Eingangstüren(total lieblos/weißes Plastik) im alten Telefonzellenlook befinden sich quasi in einer Unterführung unter dem Glaswürfel. Ja auch PKW und LKW rauschen an einem vorbei und veranstalten ein Wettkrachen. Urin, der Geruch von uralt Stümmeln, Licht wie um 23:00 Uhr sind das A und O einer jeden Unterführung. Passt eigtl. zu Köln aber nicht mehr zu den anderen Eingängen der Messe.
Drum finde ich die neuen Pläne gut gelungen. Aus der Unterführung wird eine Fußgängerzone mit viel Licht und der Glaskasten verschwindet gänzlich.
