Are there any projects happening along the pedestrian streets leading from the Cathedral? There were some awesome infill developments along that street that appeared to be brand new from when I went there in 2011, particularly including one with hundreds of pins sticking out of the facade and another that had solar panels covering every inch that was not window to give it a sparkling crystalline look.

Projects on the two main pedestrian streets Hohe Straße and Schildergasse are mostly about closing gaps or replacing pre-war architecture, hence are rather small mostly.

I can't recall a solar panel covered building to be honest.
The one with pins sticking out of the facade might be this one? In the center of the image - couldn't find a better one, sorry.

(big: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...r_Dom-5532.jpg)
This building isn't that new actually but if I remember correctly they are thinking about illuminating it at night. Could be nice-looking because of the reflecting facade.


And these are some quite recently finished projects:

Fielmann Haus
there was a gap between the buildings before

Source and big version: http://www.chm.de/files/fielmann_03_...sen_upload.jpg

Neumarkt Galerie
reshaped existing building at the end of Schildergasse

(http://www.koeln.de/koeln/einkaufen)

Weltstadthaus


(http://www.baukunst-nrw.de/objekte/P...Koeln--103.htm)


(own)

A bigger upcoming project will be right next to the Weltstadthaus. The parish of the Antoniterkirche wants to redevelop the plot around the church (see left part of the picture above) to build a small square on Schildergasse with adjacent shops and gastronomy.

---

And this is what Hohe Straße looks like on Saturdays, still it's the Schildergasse which is considered as the most busiest shopping street in Europe (according to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schildergasse).

One of the few places in the western world that resemble an Asian metropolis!

Quite nice projects actually, Cologne is in need of more colourful and varied facades, to get rid of its "grey city" image.

Heumarkt Station

One station on the north-south line presented in the last post is Heumarkt, which I thought is worth mentioning separately.
It's Cologne's biggest metro station and forms an underground junction. Its hall measures 23 meters in height. The station was opened to the public in December 2013 and its total costs where 90 million euros.

These are some photos I took on the opening day. The upper east-west level wasn't finished back then.







When it was under construction...


More photos can be found here.

Dock 6-10, Rheinauhafen

District/Quarter: Innenstadt/Altstadt-Süd (on map)

The Rheinauhafen used to be an industrial habour area which has been transformed into a new urban quarter from 2003 to 2014.
The building "Dock 6-10" forms the apex of this development as it was finished late last year as the last building of the key plan. It holds 15 flats, 4.000 m² of office space and commercial units in the ground floor.







More pictures of the Rheinauhafen in general can be found here.

They would have done better without that bland modernist appendix. The brick facades behind have more character and would have made a great riverfront with all the free space. Now it's unnecessarily built up and the styles clash.

This is the side with the marina. The brick stone building is sitting at the riverfront actually.

I, personally, quite like the new building. I think it's fitting well to the more modern architecture along the marina. Moreover I wouldn't like an empty plot here as a building is accentuating the walk on the peninsulas middle so nicely.

Absolutely! I'm really happy with the new stations.
I just found some nice photos on Flickr which I posted in the Cologne sub-forum and which I'd like to share here, too. Those stations are truly photogenic.

The Gerling Quartier is one of a kind. Great urban and dense scheme, mixed uses, quality classic-modern post-war architecture, beautifully restored and extended. That's how it's done Köln, that's how it's done! Really looking forward to see it finished.

It's nice indeed, I just wish they'd leave the high-rise out, doesn't really fit the area.
