Rheinboulevard
See #39.

The lower half of the stairs is open to the public now while the work on the upper half and the boulevard road itself will continue until early next year. They made some relevant archaeological discoveries out of roman and medieval times there which will be included in the boulevard.











These are remnants of an old embankment which will be preserved.

Thanks comrade erbsky, but I don't want to spam this page with too many photos.
If anybody's interested in more photos about the Gerling Quartier, you can look them up here ff.

I have heard that the Gerling Tower got a light installation similar to the KölnTurm which provides a nice purple illumination. I'll see if I can make some good night shots eventually to share them here.

For reference, this is the KölnTurm illumination at night:

Longericher Str.
Nippes / Bilderstöckchen
  • Developer: Ewald Hohr Projektentwicklungen mit visionären technischen Konstruktionen im Hochbau & Co. KG (yup )

This is a proposal for a new office tower in the northern district of Nippes. The project website doesn't offer any more information unfortunately. My request to the developer in this regard hasn't been answered yet. We'll wait and see what happens.

For the magnusstrasse project, the third one is the best.
The longericher Strasse project will look good, but the renders are not yet selling it. Hopefully those diagonal buildings across the street will be replaced as well!

I hope they build the first or second design for the Magnusstraße. The design laguage of the third one is very overused... Best would be second with adition of the penthouse thing on the third one! Would made a great homage to early german modernism.
