Only 32 years after the inauguration the former 9-storey headquarter of the Berliner Volksbank is going to be demolished and replaced by a new 15-storey office high rise. Beginning the demolition in February the building is expected to be down this in years autumn. The construction will start directly after the demolition is finished.

This is the current building which sadly is going to be replaced.
It was quite a landmark in the City West ... a very iconic building.

A current view from the webcam shows that the last floor is under construction right now.
After that there is around 5m of roof construction missing where the terrace will be located.

Very basic, characterless external design in my view. Sad that this valuable, focal point location would have a new structure that looks like a cookie-cutter design of any of hundreds of generic office buildings. The not-so-old building that was removed to make room for this dull replacement at least had interesting reliefs and design details that made it interesting.

This would have been a really bland building but that cladding is quite decent, especially when they finish the mullions and remove any protective film
