Kiel is the capital and most populous city in the northernmost German State of Schleswig-Holstein with a population of about 240.000. Because of its geographic location at the southwestern shore of the Baltic Sea, the completely navigable Kiel fjord and the Kiel-canal, the busiest artificial waterway in the world, Kiel is one of the major maritime centres of Germany. The city is especially known for the annual Kiel week, which is the biggest sailing event in the world, and also one of the largest Volksfeste in Germany.

Being the traditional home of the German Navy's Baltic Fleet, Kiel is major centre for high-tech shipbuilding and maritime sciences. The harbour and the city's skyline are dominated by passenger ferries to Norway, Sweden and Russia. In the last years Kiel also developed to be an important port of call for cruise ships touring the Baltic Sea.

Following the Unification of Germany in 1871, Kiel was designated Reichskrieghafen and became
the major naval base of the German Empire. Because of it's new role, the city massivly grew, from
18000 in 1864 to 200.000 in 1910. The new status also had it's downsides. After the arms race was
put to an end by World War I, the city suffered from serious economic problems. The Third Reich
brought recovery, but ultimately ended in destruction. Kiel was among the worst destroyed German
citys during World War II, with still visible scars.

At the corner Gerhardstraße / Gefionstraße, near the Blücherplatz created 85 new apartments. The works are divided into 2 phases of construction. The first section was completed last year. The second section is to be completed in early 2014.

first section:

from Timsen


Nochmals von derselben Ecke der Blick über die Gerhardstr. in Richtung zukünftige
Tiefgarageneinfahrt auf die "Noch-Baustelle Innenhof", rechts der 2. fertige Bau:



Und abermals von dem runden Kopfbau Gneisenau-/Gerhardstr. (re.) der Blick
entlang des 2. kürzlich fertiggestellten Baus -Gerhardstr. Richtung Süden:



Und hier mal ein Blick von Süden/ v.d. Wrangelstr aus (vorne die Post):



Die Balkone bieten den Bewohnern viel Platz -ragen ergo weit i.d. Strassenraum:



Insgesamt gefällt´s mir.

Frage mich noch:
Der helle Klinker nur, weil´s ja anscheinend "trendy" ist
oder in Anlehnung an den "Rundbau von ~2001?
Current status second section:



Inzwischen geht es an Gneisenau- und Gefionstraße deutlich in die Höhe.
