Recently the Berlin Bureau of Statistics have released numbers and figures describing the Berlin Apartment Construction in 2015. And since I find the numbers quite interesting I had a closer look and I’ll try to sum up some of them.
Since 2012 the inner city area around Schlossplatz is a gigantic construction site: the Humboldtforum is built where Berlin’s City Palace once was. I know, most people refer to the new building as ‘The City Castle’ or just “The Castle” – but only because it looks like a castle and it’s located where the old […]
If you’ve been to Kastanienalle in Prenzlauer Berg, you probably know this wide open space opposite of the Biergarden Prater that was used as a parking area for ages. Nothing special – just some space for about 100 cars, some trees, some trash, some graffiti – a short cut and an open view connecting Kastanienallee […]

The mayor of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg, Monika Herrmann is currently loudly thinking and talking about installing Coffee Shops to undermine the local *soft drug business*. Finally!! And skyscrapers are back: US-American investor Hines is planning to build a high rise building at Alexanderplatz. The tower would reach 150m in height, that’s about 50m beneath the visitor platform […]
Today i discovered this plastic Toilet in Kastanienallee in front of the language school. I suppose it’s indicating that very soon also the lower part of Kastanienallee will be a construction site… The upper part of Kastanienallee has been geavily under construction for quite a while – and it actually still isn’t finished yet. The […]
