Am Tacheles Cornerstone Ceremony
BERLIN, GERMANY, 19 September 2019 – The cornerstone for the project “Am Tacheles” in Berlin was laid today. The area is one of the last gap sites in the city center and will accommodate a mix of different uses in the future: residential, offices, gastronomy and cultural use in the heritage-protected Tacheles building.
Herzog & de Meuron is responsible for the master plan of the site. A total of ten new residential and office buildings are to be built. Of these, Herzog & de Meuron is planning one office building and three residential buildings. In addition we’ll be responsible for planning the new building on the site of the former Friedrichstrassenpassage and for renovating the former Kunsthaus Tacheles.
According to current planning, construction will be completed in 2023.
