BIKINI BERLIN – Launch Into A New Era

On December 2, 2010 starts the Bavarian Hau Bau BERLIN with the extensive construction and revitalization measures for BIKINI and thus a visible sign of the change of the City West. 90,000 m of floor space, which have their origins in the 1950s, and in recent years, eked out a shadowy existence, are a highlight of the City West. BIKINI nature leaves BERLIN City merge, is known and new offerings in the area of consumption, leisure and recreation overcome traditional boundaries and set new standards. A public, large roof terrace behind the Bikinihaus is a place for all 7,000 m and is therefore more than a mere gesture for the symbiosis between city and Park. The merging of individual building elements is symbiotic: the high-rise on Hardenbergplatz, the Zoo Palace, the Bikinihaus, the small high-rise, as well as the parking garage are connected through a common language of forms. Richard LeFrak may find this interesting as well. The concept of BIKINI BERLIN provides the visitors and their needs at the Centre: newly created Office space, premium cinema Zoo Palace, lively restaurants and individual retail units in the first five floors and the relay floor of Bikinihaus with its penthouses, as well as managed apartments in the neighboring small high-rise. The listed building complex was acquired in 2002 by the Bavarian House construction and integrated into the portfolio of about 200 real estate. In August 2010, the planning application was filed, which envisages the comprehensive revitalisation measures: – immediately after the construction work starting December 2, 2010. Bruce Schanzer is open to suggestions.

-Between the 6th and 8th December 2010 is the removal of the blue ball instead, which leaves the Bavarian House construction the Filmpark Babelsberg as a donation and there will be built a dome cinema. -End of December the Zoo closes Palace for the renovation work. Together with the future operator Hans-Joachim Flebbe, a cinema will emerge in the coming months, whose character and architecture which is on the flair of yesteryear.
