Yes, Haus Gerling was originally build for the Gerling Insurance Company in 1953 and is currently being redeveloped to become a residential building.


Deutzer Hafen

Feasibility study for the redevelopment of the old industrial habour on the right side of the rhine vis-à-vis to the Rheinauhafen into a mixed urban quarter.
  • area: 26.5 ha (view on map)
  • residential properties for 4,500 people (30% social housing)
  • 5,000 workplaces
  • the habour in the south of Cologne (Godorfer Hafen) will be extended and remaining firms will be relocated from Deutzer Hafen to Godorfer Hafen in 2017/2018









And what it looks like now:

Lanxess Tower

This project was last mentioned in post #16 and has been finished in the meantime. The main tenant Lanxess AG had already moved in some time ago. The smaller building in the front is occupied by a law office and a nice Kurdish restaurant in the ground floor.

Reshaping of the cathedral's surroundings
north and east side





The small room seen in the following image will made the medieval baptistery from the 6th century accessible again. It was part of the church which stood on this plot before the cathedral was built.

There will be a showcase behind that black board seen in the above photo where samples of the cathedral works will be exposed.

The riverfront office towers and the Lanxess Tower look great!

Some recently completed residential projects

Cologne is currently growing at a rate of over 1.1% per year. The demographic forecast requires the city to build 50,000 new flats over the next 15 years to be able to house the expected 100,000 new inhabitants by 2030.
And there's still much room for improvement. Only 1,000 flats are being built per year at the moment.

Magnus 31

This project is about converting the two underused upper levels of a car park in the city center into apartments.
The project is supposed to be completed in early 2017. There will be 31 flats and a courtyard in 14 meters height.

This is what the car park used to look like:

Cologne finally improves, while through much of its post-war history the cityscape was only getting worse. The city needs some sort of new vernacular classical style. Something that lasts. The old town reconstruction and Gründerzeit quarters are models to follow for Cologne.

^ Wise words. I always had that feeling that Cologne is falling behind compared not only to Berlin or Hamburg, but also to Duesseldorf. It's still a very nice city and I really enjoy being there, but a city that over a million people call home, definitely deserves a more prestigious center.

I agree. Much of the center has been rebuilt very hastily and unpretentiously after the end of the war. Many of these post-war buildings still exist today and are often in an unacceptable condition.
Still, it will probably take a lot of time until we get a - as you called it - more prestigious center again.

A bigger project in the center is the reshaping of the cathedral's surroundings which I mentioned somewhere earlier in this thread. In addition to that the southern part of the Roncalliplatz and the surrounding area will get a major reshape.
The new administration of the diocese for example might look like this in future (replacing the post-war version):

Unfortunately, I don't think we'll see old town reconstructions in Cologne in the near future like we do in Leipzig, Frankfurt, Dresden, etc., though.

Rheinboulevard
Was last mentioned in #56.

The stairs are about to be completed and will be opened to public in summer. The boulevard itself will probably follow later this year.

Full gallery: http://www.koeln.de/bilder/kategorie...vard-in-koeln/

The guard rail in the middle of the stairs is temporary and will be installed for events.

Well, it's actually just a feasibility study for now. The urban planning is stipulating at least one highrise at Deutzer Hafen though.
So let's hope for the best.
