Alexander-Berlins Capital Tower by Ortner&Ortner

Designed by German firm Ortner&Ortner, a 150-metre-high skyscraper in Berlin will become the city’s tallest building. The Alexander-Berlins Capital Tower would be 25 metres higher than the city’s current tallest building, the 125-metre-high Park Inn Berlin Alexanderplatz. The project is part of an ongoing regeneration of the Alexanderplatz area of central Berlin that followed German reunification in 1990.

Plans for the new skyscraper were first revealed in 1994 as part of a wider masterplan for the city. Executive partner Karl Zeller described the tower as “an iconic project that symbolises the prosperity and diversity of our capital city. We have worked very closely with city planners to ensure that our visions for the tower completely align and are very confident that we will get the go-ahead to begin work in the coming months.”

Located on Alexanderstrasse, the building is often referred to as both the ABC Tower and the Alexander Tower. It will contain 475 apartments across 39 floors, as well as spa and gym facilities, a cinema and terraces for residents. It will also feature six floors of shops and offices, as well as an underground car park. The design refers to Martin Wagner’s urban planning and the buildings of Peter Behrens who, as representatives of metropolitan modernity, shaped the character of Alexanderplatz.
