Good, you posted the other ones I had not got to such as the Hotelfachschule and the Hackscher Markt area.


Schimmelpfeng-Haus is to be built as soon as they get another user according to that article, it said they can build it quickly!


There's also major construction started at Chausseestraße - Zentrale des BND and Heide Strasse the area north of Hauptbahnhof!

Neubauvorhaben BND-Zentrale. Scharnhorststraße 26-27

you posted earlier about a new bridge, brommy, according to the renderings another bridge is to be built just to the North of Brommy at Manteuffel Strasse!

Yes, the Fehrbellliner looks wacky and weird! lol


The renderings for Keibel strasse look quite good, adds a bit of colour to that rather grey area of Alexanderplatz!

Admiralpalast, is this a new project, I thought there was a building on Friedrichstrasse called Admiralpalast?


And Kaiserhofe, is this a new project to?

It looks really nice but I don't think it's gonna be realized that way.

First there's simply no need for such high buildings in berlin and I also can't imagine that they would tear down the Park Inn hotel. not since they've spent millions on the new fassade and it's simply too important for the city. you should not forget that it's one of the highest buildings in the whole city. so why should they tear down a highrise for another one?

That rendering is for Keibel strasse, which is part of the A6 building plan, it is not near the Park Inn hotel which is part of the D1-D3 building plan for the Alexanderplatz. see the links below!

Yes, its right on Friedrichstrasse, right to the north of the train station. I'd hardly call it a new project, its already opened. I think it was finished around October 2007, maybe earlier.

Cheers Eduardo, I know the building but didn't know its name, plus the photo Grumpy posted looks like a shot from the back of the building!

I have a few photographs of the front facade.

New Exhibit Explores Hitler's Germania

This should be good for anyone living in Berlin or planning a visit soon!

Grumpy, your planning on visiting some Germania sites at Kolonnen strasse/brucke!


"Myth Germania" opens Saturday, March 15, and runs until December 31, 2008.


http://www.spiegel.de/international/...540558,00.html


Hitler was confident of winning World War II and planned to give Berlin a monumental makeover by 1950. A group in Berlin has collected records about his 'Germania' vision -- and plans to lead tours through what's left of the old construction site.
ƒ

Hitler never liked Berlin. He saw it as a dirty, liberal-minded place and was disdainful of its leftist political leanings. But he had an idea for fixing it after World War II came to an end. His famous vision of Berlin for 1950 -- planned in detail by his architect, Albert Speer -- was a grand Fascist city called "Germania," and a new Berlin exhibition looks at models and physical traces of it left behind by Hitler's regime.

The exhibit, called "Myth Germania," shows just how far from reality Hitler's mind wandered when he dreamed about Germany's future. One centerpiece is a scale model of the Volkshalle, a gargantuan domed auditorium that Speer imagined rising over the River Spree. The Volkshalle dome would have risen 290 meters (951 feet) into the air, higher than some New York skyscrapers. The exhibit's model makes scale models of the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag look like toys from a model train set.

The exhibit also includes building plans, photos and documentation from Nazi schemes to relocate Jews in Berlin. And it features a model from the Hitler movie "The Downfall," showing the so-called "North-South Axis" -- a multi-lane boulevard Speer hoped to build from the Volkshalle to a future "Südbahnof" near Tempelhof airport.

Other German cities like Nuremberg and Munich were also due for a Fascist makeover after the war, as was Linz in Austria, but Hitler wanted Berlin to soar on an epic scale. His Volkshalle was modelled on Hadrian's Pantheon in Rome, and in 1942 he said, "Berlin will be comparable as a world capital only to Egypt, Babylon or Rome. What is London or Paris in comparison?"

Underground Tours of Germania?

Models and building plans of Germania have been exhibited in museums before, but the new show's organizers, "Berliner Unterwelten," want to lead tours through Germania construction sites dug by the Nazis under Berlin's Tiergarten park. Blind tunnels started as early as 1938 -- subway and traffic tunnels, mainly, lined with marble -- were rediscovered in the 1960s. These remnants of Germania were first made semi-accessible after 2001, when a new underground road called "Tiergarten Tunnel" was finished.

But Sascha Keil, spokesman for Berliner Unterwelten -- which normally conducts tours of unused tunnels and bunkers in Berlin -- said it was too early to announce a formal start date for the tours. "It will be several weeks from now," he estimated. "That's public property (under the Tiergarten), so it takes time to get permission."

For now he hopes the Germania exhibit will find a permanent home in Berlin. Berliner Unterwelten has rented an independent space for the show through 2008 near the Holocaust Memorial and the Brandenburg Gate -- about half a kilometer from the old planned site of the Volkshalle.

"Myth Germania" opens Saturday, March 15, and runs until December 31, 2008.
